Quealy Pobblebonk 2013
It doesn’t smell subdued, with ripe pears and a dash of honeysuckle, but the palate feels stunted and short, the suggestion of ripe fruit on the nose cut off and constricted, leaving behind a mildly empty palate of acid and little else but a dash of phenolics.
I wonder what is going on here? Clean and fresh but something of a disappointment given the highwater mark of the other Quealy wines.
