Pioneers of alternative varietals (can you believe Pinot Grigio was actually classified as an alternative varietal back in the day!), Quealy make North-Eastern Italian inspired wines from their organic vineyard in Balnarring.
Friulano stands out from other white grape varieties, showcasing a unique textural character similar to creme patissiere. There is a Pinot Gris-esque spiciness on the nose along with a nettle herbaceous character and smoky oak. On the palate it's on the fuller side showing a balanced fruit richness.
