A single parcel Pinot Noir from the KBS Vineyard, offering typicity and profound integrity each year. Named after founder Kenneth Brian Stonier, the KBS property was planted in 1988 on deep rich red loams adjacent to the winery. Pinot Noir from this elite site is nothing short of outstanding, it translates into the finest examples of Mornington, consistently well balanced with ripe fruit flavours yet high natural acidity. The smallest quarter of the choicest fruit is separately bottled as KBS Pinot Noir, the balance forming a key component in Stonier's Reserve.
The priority here is to retain the individual site characteristics throughout the winemaking By constructing a single vineyard KBS Pinot Noir, Stonier can isolate for the enthusiast, the nuances of the local terrains which make Stonier so special. KBS vineyard is lyre trellised which opens up the canopy, this combined with its easterly aspect ensures that the vines capture maximum sunlight. Hand picked grapes are destemmed and vinified in small open fermenters, hand plunged through fifteen days maceration before transfer to new and prior use French oak barriques for malolactic. KBS is allowed to mature with minimal intervention for an extended term before being racked and bottled the following winter.
TASTING NOTES
Medium ruby colour. Fragrant aromas of dark plum, raspberry and blackberry with some dried herbal notes and fresh liquorice. An abundance of generously flavoured dark red fruits to the palate with a hint of raspberry liquorice and some uplifting spice on a firm but delicate tannin structure. KBS displays the definition, richness and integration of a great vineyard.

More About Stonier Winery
In 1978, Brian Stonier and his wife Noel established the Stonier vineyard in the coastal town of Merricks, one hour southeast of Melbourne, ten minutes from the challenging surf beaches of Bass Straight
Decades later, the name Stonier is widely recognised as a producer of exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. At the heart of Stonier lies a meticulous approach to viticulture and winemaking. A desire to reflect the imprint of each site, through subtle variations in flavour and texture, interweaving these differences to form elegant wines of seamless complexity has earned Stonier a place amongst the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producers in Australia. Stonier sources Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from over 150 acres across 5 selected sub-regions; Merricks North, Balnarring, Tuerong, Red Hill and at the estate vineyards in Merricks which span over 50 acres.
