Quealy Pyrenees Nebbiolo 2012
The final wine in a little trio of Australian Nebbiolo that I’ve been looking at over the week (a Pizzini and a Coriole).
This was the odd one out for this trio methinks, the younger vintage giving this more primary fruit, but also the style a little less about tannic power and more about prettiness and light touch.
Still impressive and well made, the lightness of touch admirable (I wonder if the amphora maturation helped?).Good. Promise for future releases = good.
Source: Sample, tasted February ’15
Best drinking: 2015-2022
Score: 17/20, 90/100
Would I buy it? I think a glass or so would be about right. Not a true cellaring option.
