Stoney Rise is a boutique vineyard and cellar door in Tamar Valley, the brainchild of Joe Holyman and his wife Lou. After a career and family background in the wine industry, Holyman acquired his own vineyard with a view to fulfilling his own passion for growing the finest quality wine grapes in the very special cool climates of Tasmania's north. The vineyard, planted to three hectares of Pinot Noir and one of Chardonnay, was established in 1986. Holyman has made the most of his experience, following a career in New Zealand and Tasmania, Portugal and France, Mt Benson and Coonawarra, to formulate distinctive small batch wines which express the influences of a unique mesoclime and terroir.
Deep ruby colour. The nose opens with lifted fruit aromas with hints of violet, cherry and spice, strawberries and Campari, red fruits seasoned by cinnamon and herb. The palate is full and rich, structured and taut, expressing bright berry characters on a solid fruit structure leading to a long finish with plenty weight of flavour. Great with grilled salmon or marinated beef tartare.
