Hughes & Hughes 2021 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 premium vineyard sites around Tasmania with half coming from the Upper Derwent Valley. Lifted fragrance with melon, citrus and floral elements. Refined chardonnay with texture and length. A little more new oak than usual adds perfume and structure to the wine.
