Review: Quiet Mutiny 2019 Venus Rising Syrah by Mark Smith

Quiet Mutiny is an exciting project from Greer Carland, formerly of Winemaking Tasmania and now the deft maker of Laurel Bank wines in the Derwent Valley. 

Born an raised there, Carland knows the district in intimate detail.

In making this very attractive, fruit-forward Shiraz (aka Syrah), grapes from 40-year-old vines have been given kid-glove treatment to showcase the juicy vibrancy the variety can show in favourable vintages.

Despite its deep, inky colour, the wine is eminently drinkable now, with delicious blackberry, blueberry and white pepper notes all playing in perfect harmony.
