Variety: Chardonnay
Country, Region: Australia, Tasmania

Fruit from vineyards in the Coal River (Roslyn and Clarence House) and Derwent Valleys (Kinvarra). 70% whole bunch pressed, 30% cold-soaked on skins for five days, all naturally fermented in oak (15% new). Partial malolactic fermentation while maturing on lees for five months. Bottled unfined and filtered. White stone fruit overlaying citrus and gentle oak aromas. Racy acidity balanced by rich textures, classic Chardonnay.

'From vineyards in the Coal River and Derwent Valleys, 70% whole-bunch pressed, 30% cold-soaked on skins, wild-fermented in French oak (15% new), partial mlf, not fined or filtered. It all comes together perfectly, with a mouthfeel that is harmonious not challenging, the flavours midway between stone fruit and citrus. Drink by 2029.' 95 points, Red Star for Value, James Halliday, August 2020.

'The Hughes & Hughes range is one of the great examples of producers diversifying in the landscape of fine pinot noir and chardonnay (and sparkling wines) that Tasmania holds aloft. I like the cut of their jib.' Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2019

All wines from Hughes & Hughes are from fruit purchased (mostly from southern Tasmania) and made by Jonny Hughes at his 'day job' at Pooley wines. Work has begun on the Mewstone cellar construction so soon the wines will be made at the Mewstone vineyard at Flowerpot. Varietal wines are made using seeded ferments and are fined and filtered whereas small batch wines are made with natural yeast ferments and are largely un-fined and unfiltered as is the practice for all Mewstone wines. These wines all show the lightness of touch and elegance and finesse that runs from the white wines into the Pinot Noirs as well. Never lacking for flavour or personality all wines show pristine fruit and share a unique vibrancy that comes from minimal intervention wine-making.
