Review: 2018 Quiet Mutiny Venus Rising Pinot Noir by Mark Smith

Posted by Greer Carland on Casting herself in the role of a mutineer winemaker, 2021 Young Gun of Wine finalist Greer Carland certainly crafted a gun Pinot Noir from the superb Coal River Valley fruit she was able to purchase three vintages ago. A multi-award winner, the wine offers lashings of colour, aroma and flavour. It's characterised by rich dark cherry and plum elements, supported by fine ripe tannins. A whiff of mint or eucalypt telegraphs its valley origins, while neatly judged cool climate acidity provides welcome freshness and genuine cellaring potential.

Review: Quiet Mutiny Venus Rising Syrah by Regan Drew

Posted by Greer Carland on Syrah enters the fold for Greer Carland’s Quiet Mutiny line up. 40% of the fruit from 46 year old Derwent Valley vines. Wild ferment, with some parcels whole bunch. 20% new French oak.Not for the faint hearted. Garrigue herbs and big punches of white pepper. Venus is a spicy little number that’s for sure. Light chocolate ganache over dark berry fruit with a hint of char and earthiness. Medium weight, yet supple with the spice a definitive, maybe even divisive, prime characteristic. While herbaceous, it isn’t green or mean and there’s still ripe tannins providing a decent spine.RRP: $48Alc:...

Review: Quiet Mutiny 2019 Venus Rising Pinot Noir by Regan Drew

Posted by Greer Carland on I’m in luck here with a sneaky pre-release of the 2019 vintage. The 2018 is still currently available and offers excellent value.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: TBAAlc: 13.5%Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
