Mewstone 2017 Pinot Noir
Winery : Mewstone
Michele's notes: Supple, red-cherry-sappy and ever so slightly smoky initially. After breathing darker fruits come to the fore with enticing blackcurrant/jubey characters. Candied violets too, and roses. There's a lovely glycerol flow across the palate, finishing with talc-like tannins. An elegant and serene Mewstone Pinot Noir.
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.
