Hughes & Hughes 20% Whole Bunch 2016 Pinot Noir

Something new. Something different. Something exciting. Brothers Jonny and Matt Hughes have considerable experience in the Tasmanian wine industry and have now struck out on their own with their Hughes & Hughes label. Based at Flowerpot, in the d'Entrecasteaux Channel south of Hobart, they have released three pinots from the recent 2016 vintage and this small-batch effort really caught my eye. As the label suggests, 20% is whole bunch processed, the remainder being whole berry. It's obviously a young wine, but it has both impressive power and texture. High-quality stuff - and a label worth keeping an eye out for. $33. Call 0439367653.
