2020 Dornfelder (Pet Nat)Barrel Online
Brothers Matthew and Jonathan Hughes established Mewstone Vineyard in 2011 on the banks of Tasmania’s D’Entrecasteaux Channel in the tiny hamlet of Flowerpot. The small, boutique vineyard is a former cherry orchard and with some new plantings this year will expand to an ultimate size of just 3.5 hectares. The original plantings consist mostly of Pinot Noir with small plantings of Chardonnay, Syrah, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. All Hughes & Hughes wines are bottled unfined and with low sulphur.
A pétillant naturel made from whole bunch pressed Dornfelder. Bottled during primary ferment to capture the bubbles. Bottled unfined, unfiltered with no added sulphur. Alc 11.9%
Here they turn it into a delightful Pet Nat. It tastes of black jube lollies, bright fresh blueberries, some fresh herbs and a truckload of spice all wrapped up in a fizzy little package.
Great colour, great refreshment factor - this might be the only Dornfelder Pet Nat in the world. Why not check it out?
