I loved drinking this wine. A strong recommendation.

About The Wine

A true field blend! About 15 varieties planted in a single plot, all co-fermented, within the great Weinviertel region near Vienna, in the traditional manner.

Gemischter Satz (field blend is rough translation) became recognised a wine style in 2013, the first wine in Austria to be designated as a style, rather than a region.

There's real value here - a crunchy, dry herbal white with excellent persistence and a real savoury feel. Toned and refreshing with apple, citrus and pepper flavours galore.

About Groiss

Ingrid Groiss grew up in her grandmother's vineyard in the small village of Breitenwaida in the Weinviertel region north of Vienna.

After starting her professional life in marketing, Ingrid returned to her home town to pursue her love of wine from her home region. Whilst garnering valuable experience at well-known producers Domäne Wachau, Birgit Braunstein and Birgit Eichinger, Ingrid was assistant winemaker to her father for their family wines.

In 2010, she challenged her father to a blind taste-off of their individual wines to see who would lead the family label on. A changing of the guard occurred and the Ingrid's skills have propelled the label to a new standard of quality.

"A very authentic expression of the Weinviertel region (even if it’s not named on the label), this has tons of herbal and apple character, the bold finish very crisp." - Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com)

"Layers of flavour and texture. Apple. Peach. Sherbet. Tingly. Juicy. Spicy. Peppery. Dried herbs. Root vegetable earthiness. A sort of flour and pepper texture to it, with a spicy fruity finish of fine length. I loved drinking this wine. A strong recommendation." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com 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).
