Hughes & Hughes Equinox 2020

Jonny and Matthew Hughes are the force behind Mewstone Wines, while their Hughes & Hughes label celebrates non-estate fruit and allow a little bit of vinous colouring outside the lines. Here we’ve a blend of Riesling and Chenin Blanc. 75 days on skins. 60 days in oak. Unfined and unfiltered. No added sulphur.

Hughes & Hughes, Equinox, Riesling, Chenin Blanc, Tasmania, 2020

Vibrancy with savoury depth. Apricots, lemon butter, salted caramel and sea spray. Medium light frame. Finely textured. The rightness of the fruit for the time on skins and in oak, then bottled with the exact amount of required tautness. Acidity that still pierces. This satiates with a dryness, an assuredness.

RRP: $35
Alc: 13.2%
Rating: 94/100
