2019 Stoney Rise Pinot Noir


"The 2019 Stoney Rise Pinot Noir comes from what I think will be a great vintage in time to come.  It was a beautiful, long mild season, where everything just seemed to fall into place. 

This latest release is 80% fruit from our vineyards and 20% from our grower vineyards in the Tamar Valley and for what it is worth - I think this wine is far too serious for it's price point.  A little more Holyman-like than Stoney Rise maybe!  It will develop over time into a very good expression of the vintage and the longevity of the wines from this vintage.

It is a very fragrant wine, with red cherries and red currants the dominant characters with hints of roses.  The palate is fresh and succulent with some Campari like crunchiness. There is some fine tannin coin from the 15% old vine fruit, and whilst still a young wine it is already well balanced.  The structure will allow the wine to live for up to 10 years but it is ready to go now."
