2019 BEST NEW WINERY James Halliday Wine Companion
2018 BEST NEW ACT Young Guns of Wine: Jonny Hughes
Mewstone Wines is a venture between winemaker Jonny Hughes 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.
Michele's notes: Medium depth. Aromas of red cherry, violets and musk sticks, pepper spice. Serene in the mouth with layers of sweet fruit, savoury and resiny elements. Fine chalky grip. Will cellar for at least another 8-10 years.
