There’s a physical aspect to making Pinot Noir that demands a close-up, hands-on connection between winemaker and fruit. It begins with hand harvest and intensifies throughout the following weeks of fermentation management before rolling to barrel for the long months of relative quiet and gradual evolution. Imbedded in this process is a genuine sense of work, of craft and perhaps even art. Each vintage of our Pinot Noir bears a clear imprint of the season that has shaped it. Characters of colour, aroma, fruit flavour and structure each convey part of this complex story. Indeed, by adopting a light-handed winemaking approach, we aim to allow the wine to express itself  honestly

“A blend of neighbouring vineyards, the 2017 Stone’s Throw Pinot Noir is exceptionally fragrant and silky. offering up hints of smoked bacon, various savory spices, floral notes and dark berries. It’s medium-bodied, with delicate tannins that are just present enough to give the wine shape on the palate without interfering with its early consumption. Pretty and complex, it should be consumed over the next few years.” 92/100      Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, April 2020


‘Gloriously silky-textured pinot noir, bursting with ripe berry fruit. Expensive, but it would be hard to find a comparable red burgundy at this price. The sauvignon blanc in the same range is excellent, too.’ Fiona Beckett, The Guardian, 19th March 2021
