Description

A super-bright and crisp Mornington Friuli-inspired field blend from the master winemaker Kathleen Quealy

Quealy Winemakers premiered with this field blend; the inspiration was Jermann Vintage Tunina whom Kat & Kevin revisited in 2006 after Kev's pilgrimage there in 1995 . The frogs on the label celebrated our decision to nuture & regenerate our farm's environment. Quealy's winery vineyard is now certified organic.

The beauty of Pobblebonk is the chorus of this vineyard quintet - the pink fruits of Pinot Grigio, the sullen strength of skin-contact Friulano contrasting with the tingling acidity and opulent aromatics of Moscato and Riesling. Co-fermentation of Pinot Grigio and Friulano begins as a brooding, reductive moody wine ignited with the blending of classic aromatic varieties; Moscato Giallo and Riesling. The palate is a colourful tapestry of whole citrus fruits, jasmine tea, and orange blossom with a nutty background.

85 Points - "Light to mid-yellow colour, with a green herb, grassy, nettle aroma, the palate green and grassy, with a slight spritz. Some of the grapes weren't quite ripe, it seems. The finish is clean and dry." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

93 Points - "70/14/11/5% friulano/pinot grigio/riesling/chardonnay. As refreshing as a spring day. And it's tight and steely, this vintage. Ginger spice on stone fruit, with a twist of lemon. Light and breezy, yet there's texture too with chalky acidity. I could drink lots of this." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

Customer Reviews

Quealy

Kathleen Quealy is part of the winemaking heart & soul of Mornington Peninsula.

The first person to plant Pinot Gris in Australia, Kathleen and her husband Kevin McCarthy launched T'Gallant winery in the 90s, pioneering this famous variety. But it was with Quealy Vineyards, based in Merricks North, with the winery and cellar door in the centre of the viticultural action, where they made their mark.

Kathleen has continued to innovate - along with PG, Quealy is renowned for super-interesting expressions of Muscat and Fruilano, experimenting with different degrees of skin contact and fermentation styles. Kathleen & Kevin's son Tom has now taken on the daily winemaking duties, with guidance from Mum and Dad and the wines have never looked better.

Kathleen is a true industry legend and one of the most visionary wine personalities on the Peninsula.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
