2017 Quealy Mornington Pinot Grigio

Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Delightful Pinot Grigio from the family who pioneered the variety in Australia.


Pristine, minerally fruit flavours, racy, quietly powerful, very fine boned. Totally delicious.

About The Wine

Kathleen Quealy is one of Australia's Pinot Grigio pioneers, and hers is still one of the country's best.

It comes from the Mornington Peninsula, which we believe is home to the country's finest examples of this much-loved grape. Where many Pinot Grigio or Gris for that matter can be quite simplistic, this has a real presence and finesse to it.

It has perfume, it has ripe fruit, it has texture and it has refreshment. It's one of those wines with not a hair out of place. It's lovely.

If you like your Pinot Grigios then this is a must!

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"From three portions of grigio all managed by the Quealy-McCarthy family. Older vines, no irrigation. Whole bunch pressed fruit. Ripe fruit, lean acid, all in the mix.Crisp, lean, sleek white of precision and thrust. Steely acidity under green pear, green apple flavours, light floral notes. Pristine, minerally fruit flavours, racy, quietly powerful, very fine boned. Totally delicious." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
