About

Joe Holyman is one of the leading lights of Tasmanian wine, and as Gary Walsh put it in his 94 point review of this Pinot, “one of the best, most intuitive winemakers in the country.”

His Stoney Rise Pinot Noir always massively over-delivers, and this 2015 is no exception.

With a wealth of experience from across the global wine scene, Joe along with his wife Lou, have become the proprietors of the old Rotherhythe vineyard in northern Tassie. From a vineyard that needed some serious TLC, they have been producing some top shelf Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for over a decade. This is serious stuff.

The Stoney Rise range, as James Halliday observed, is all about “focusing on fruit and early drinkability”, immediate drinking pleasure is the goal and boy have they nailed it here.

It comes from 50% estate-grown fruit and 50% from Joe’s growers, and it’s a vibrant, refreshing, effortless style of Tassie Pinot. More complexity than you’ll almost ever see for under $30 and just so much, for lack of a better term, smashability!

One of Tasmania’s true bargain Pinots. Fill your boots!

What It Tastes Like

“My goodness, this is just flat out delicious. Juicy red fruits dusted with Asian spices and vanilla florals, cut fennel and sweet fresh picked herbs. It’s light bodied, vibrant and bursting with fresh red fruits and subtle earthy and herbal undertones, pure sparkling crunchy acidity, and ultra-fine sandpaper tannin on the long bright finish provides the final polish. All the fun of the fair, with effortless drinkability.” - Gary Walsh
