About The Wine
The Hughes brothers getting into the Pet Nat game here.
The Soiree is bang on for the style. A cosmic blend of both red and white grapes makes up this fizzy pinkish delight.
The blend is comprised of Riesling and Dornfelder. The varieties compliment each other very well in Pet Nat form.
Riesling brings the zing and crisp citrus flavours and Dornfelder contributes hyper-space colouring and sweet plummy core of fruit - it's a great palate to paint from.
It's a party wine - as the name suggests - built for easy drinking and palate cleansing. Chill it down and party down.
Mewstone Wines is a joint venture between Jonny and Matt Hughes, two Tasmanian born wine-heads, and their respective wives Margie and Cathie.
The two families have invested in a small plot of land on the banks of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel in the charmingly named locality of Flowerpot, on the south-eastern tip of Tasmania. Matt works the grapes, Jonny makes the wines, taking what he learnt from seven years as assistant winemaker at Moorilla and re-imagining it for his own label.
The Hughes & Hughes wines offer some of the best value to be found in Tasmania at the moment, and the Mewstone premium range focuses on exceptional single-vineyard wines made in a style that Jonny wants to drink. James Halliday called them, "an utterly exceptional wine producer". Keep an eye on this ambitious pair as their star continues to rise.
