Quealy Amphora Friulano 2013

Friulano is a late ripening variety which excels in cool maritime climates. There's no surprise it has found a happy home in the Mornington Peninsula region with Kath Quealy holding its hand all the way.

I was lucky enough to catch up with Kath in January last year and she isn't afraid to try something different. This wine is fermented in amphora and the result has wow factor.

Marigold flower, lemonade... forget it. I started writing some tasting notes before I put down the pen and just enjoyed what was in front of me. This is such a delicious and sessional wine, it's not for analysing, just for sharing and enjoying. Perfect for warm days with friends.

Shame is, the cellar door has sold out but there is some availability in good independent stores around the country.

Worth tracking down.

Very good.
