Quiet Mutiny Venus Rising Pinot Noir 2017

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.

RRP: $47
Alc: 13.8%
Rating: 18/20
