Best New Winery 2019 - James Halliday!


"We are a small family owned winery in Southern Tasmania. The vineyard is located in Flowerpot, about 40 minutes south of Hobart on the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. Our focus is premium Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. We are very proud to have just been named Halliday Best new Winery 2019.

Our mission to remind everyone that Sauvignon Blanc deserves it status as a noble variety. Whole bunch pressed to oak, 50% new, and naturally fermented. Matured on lees for six months prior to bottling at the end of spring. We’ll never make much but we will always endeavour to challenge people’s’ perception of this variety. Only 564 bottles produced.

Mewstone


 

"Innovative and adventurous winemaker Jonny Hughes is making his mark on the Tasmanian wine industry, and is the obvious choice for our Young Winemaker of the Year."

"Meantime, the minuscule Mewstone vineyard is growing with the core of Pinot Noir augmented with Chardonnay, Syrah, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc."

"Hughes is a young man on the rise with a clear focused and assured direction"
