"We’re lucky to get this beautiful flavour at a lower alcohol,” says Quiet Mutiny’s Greer Carland. “On the mainland, you have to get to 15–16% [abv] to get the same ripeness.” Greer, also winemaker at Laurel Bank, released her first Quiet Mutiny syrah in 2019. Only one tonne of fruit was available in 2021, so supplies of her bright, jubey red are limited. “I’m a bit worried that I won’t be able to keep it in stock,” she says. “It’s selling like hotcakes!” Those looking for a by-the-glass option (and maybe an island holiday) should drop by Hobart restaurants Peacock and Jones, Pearl + Co or Stock Market
