Hughes & Hughes 2020 Chardonnay
Winery : Mewstone Wines
Hughes & Hughes is Mewstone Wines' ready to go, sometimes experimental range with fruit sourced from southern Tasmania as well as the home base at Flowerpot in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel. While Hughes is well known for his dab hand with Pinot Noir, boy is he good with whites. Texture, texture, texture is the driver, and that also means flavour, flavour, flavour...
Fruit for this Chardonnay is sourced from Coal River and Derwent Valleys. The wine is 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.
