Brothers Jonny and Matthew Hughes are making some intriguing wines under both the Newstone and Hughes & Hughes labels; wines that make a statement and are little rough around the edges - but all the better for that. Think a vinous equivalent of the Ramones. This blend of 90% merlot and 10% pinot noir from the Coal River Valley was barrel fermented with five different yeasts, matured on lees in tank and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Chill; drink. Repeat. Dangerously drinkable this one. $30. www.mewstonewines.com.au.
