Mewstone White Wines

$45.00 - $56.00
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. 
  • 2016 Mewstone Riesling: Natural ferment in oak which adds texture and rounds out the flavours. This is a beautifully fragrant Riesling, refreshing and flavoursome, with the acid wrapped up by the delicious fruit. It's dry, but there's richness.
  • 2016 Mewstone Sauvignon Blanc: This is a real wine of character and intrigue. Think Pouilly Fume in the smoky aromas but White Bordeaux in the flowers, complex flavours and glycerol-textured palate. The Mewstone mission here was to remind folk of Sauvignon Blanc's status as a Noble Variety. Ripe picking, natural ferment in new oak, malo on old oak, time on lees. Great work.
  • 2016 Mewstone Chardonnay: Whole bunch pressed directly to barrel, creating complexity. Malolactic fermentation naturally enriches the wine, but in the Hughes hands, the pristine and magnificent fruit retains its dominance. Elegant and with depth.
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…
