The Stonier Wines Story
Stonier is widely recognised as a leading Australian producer of exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from some of Mornington Peninsula’s oldest vines. The prevailing philosophy at Stonier is rooted in the Burgundian model of expression of the vineyard site. They take a meticulous approach to viticulture and winemaking in order to draw out a delicate imprint of provenance. Stonier's wines show seamless elegance with powerful varietal expression. Situated on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, Stonier was established in 1978 by Brian and Noel Stonier in the coastal town of Merricks. The first Chardonnay was planted in 1978, followed by Pinot Noir in 1982. A cool maritime climate has proved to be ideal for the traditionally early ripening varieties. The striking Stonier winery designed by architect Daryl Jackson, was completed in 1991. Stonier’s Mornington Peninsula vineyards are the foundation of their winemaking practice. Current Chief Winemaker Mike Symons crafts wines based around a single vineyard philosophy. Expressions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are bottled from various distinct vineyard sites: KBS vineyard, Windmill vineyard, Stonier Family vineyard, and Lyncroft vineyard, among others. Stonier’s vineyard portfolio boasts some of the region’s oldest vineyards, each one contributing nuances from within the different sub-regions of the peninsula.
Why's this wine for you?
Stonier Vineyard could be described as the workhorse of Mornington Peninsula. Year in year out, they produce reliably delicious wines that are authentic expressions of the beauty and terroir of Mornington Peninsula. Ever reliable, their wines offer both value and quality across the entire range. Their estate Chardonnay sits in the top tier of Chardonnay for under $30 in Australia. This is elegance in a glass, all the things we love about Mornington Peninsula chardonnay; ripe stone fruit and creamy texture combined with freshness and a hint of oak spice harmoniously balanced to create a wine that feels like taking a deep breath after a long day.

The Brief
How's it taste?
Seductive sweet lemon florals with honeyed hints of oak spice. A welcoming luscious mouthfeel, helped by the full malo-lactic fermentation, but there is also a lovely composed refinement to the palate that only comes with cool years like 2020. Flavours are very much in the classic realm, with sweet lemon and pink grapefruit, with balanced intensity and subtle firm acidity driving a persistent and long finish. One of the great Chardonnay years.

Last year’s release needed a little extra time in bottle but this release is ready and raring to go. It’s very good too. Stonefruit, grapefruit, a slip of something sweeter like cashew or candied fruit, and good energy and drive. Chardonnay with sunny varietal character and verve. Can’t go wrong here.
