Quiet Mutiny Venus Rising Pinot Noir 2019

I’m in luck here with a sneaky pre-release of the 2019 vintage. The 2018 is still currently available and offers excellent value.

Quiet Mutiny, Venus Rising, Pinot Noir, Coal Valley, 2019

Maraschino cherry, raspberry jube, lipstick, softer earthier influences of smoky beets tempered by roast walnut, stalky thyme, grated dark chocolate, rose petals and day-old orange peel. The palate initially supple and flowing before narrowing fine and tight. Scorched citrus rind, cherry flesh, tacky tannins, abundant youthful spice and a long herbal echo. Cognisant that this is a pre-release, my score reflects the here and now for a wine still maturing.

RRP: TBA
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
