Stoney Rise - 2020 No Clothes Pinot Noir
Stoney Rise is a small winery in Tasmania's Tamar Valley that has a huge reputation.
Winemaker Joe Holyman and his wife Lou purchased the property in 2004, a picturesque site planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay planted in 1986. It was an a-ha moment for them both, having extensive backgrounds in everything wine, but it wasn't until they saw the site in the Tamar that they knew they were destined to make the stuff. They are the keepers of Tasmanian Burgundy, mineral rich, rippling Chardonnays and plush, fruited Pinots.
This is one of the more fun and jovial and young wines in the range. Ripe strawberries, mid season. Juicy, mouthwatering palate with a hint of apple seed. It's balanced, bright and perfect to serve chilled. No additions too and unbelievably stable. A triumph of a natural wine!
