Mewstone wines are sourced solely from our own vineyard in Flowerpot. We think a good wine is grown, not made, and should express its place. To achieve this we make our wines with minimum intervention in the winery.

2019 Mewstone Riesling
Picked on April 10th, the fruit was whole bunch pressed, put to old oak and naturally fermented. As the cellar cooled in late autumn so too did the ferment. Fermentation extended out beyond six weeks before we called a halt as the sugars and acidity found the balance we were after. Matured on lees through to late spring before filtering and bottling. Only 888 bottles and 50 Magnums produced,

Pressed after 21 days directly to oak, 40% new, and left to mature for 9 months before bottling in late summer. Only 546 bottles and 36 magnums produced.
