Mewstone 2016 Pinot Noir

$56.00 - $325.00

Mewstone Wines is a venture between Jonny Hughes (ex Moorilla) and his brother Matt. The vineyard comprises 3ha at Flowerpot in Tasmania's D'Entrecasteaux Channel. It is named after the island of Mewstone, a small, rugged outcrop off Tasmania's south coast, not far from the Maatsuyker group. 

'The only trouble I have is the need to restrain the beast'. That's Jonny Hughes discussing the ease with which his site produces rich, concentrated pinot noir. The vineyard is naturally low-yielding at around 2.7t/ha, producing little bunches of tiny, super intense berries. Twenty percent whole bunch stops the wine being just a 'fruit bomb' and gives it perfume, depth of flavour and a backbone. Deep purple magenta in colour, lots of blue fruits with chocolate and coffee.

Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent. Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
