Stoney Rise

2016 Holyman Pinot Noir


Light in colour, but full of flavour.  Typical forest floor and hints of cranberry and red cherry.  The palate has all of the hallmark red-fruits, hints of mushroom and a complexing smoky oak edge.  The chalky tannin from the whole bunch component perfectly compliments the fresh fruits.  Whilst this wine is slightly more fruit forward than our usual style we still think it is built to last.  

  • 60% whole bunch

  • 30% new French oak

  • 100% estate grown - vines planted in 1986

  • Non irrigated vines

  • No additions except for minimal sulphur

  • No fining or filtration


The 2016 season in Tasmania was one of the warmest since we came here in 2004. Whilst not overly hot during the day, the night time temperatures were warmer than usual which resulted in the vines 'working' day and night meaning we had our earliest harvest to date - the 4th of March.
