"Friulano is a bugger to work with, but well worth the effort" notes Tom McCarthy. It is perhaps for these reasons the variety has yet to take off in Australia. Quealy manage their yields at flowering--in effect halving the potential yields--and employ prudent canopy management to manage sun exposure. Hand-picked, foot stomped and macerated on skins overnight before pressing, the wine fermented in stainless, remaining on lees until malolactic fermentation (then was racked soon after). All this resulted in deliciously creamy, flatteringly textured wine with lovely fruit notes of apricot blossom, gentle honey and some nutty complexity. Lovely.
