Quiet Mutiny is the new label from talented Tasmanian winemaker Greer Carland. She’s had her hand on the tiller of many other Tasmanian wines and labels over the years before a change of events now has her steering her own course, akin to Charlotte Badger: the heroine of the Quiet Mutiny story.
Quiet Mutiny, Venus Rising, Pinot Noir, Coal Valley, 2017
25% Whole bunch. Red fruit dominant: lipstick, strawberry and cherry skin. Stalky celery and just enough meaty/earthy complexity. Respectful, framing oak. A slightly fuller than expected front palate that like a sforzando, tightens into a fine, textural structure. Fanning out evenly to railroad straight lines that seem to head into the horizon, accompanied by a lingering complex campfire ash wisp. Quality winemaking on display.
