2018 Renzaglia Stone Wall Riesling Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Bathurst, NSW

Excellent value Bathurst grown racy dry white. "Reminiscent great white blends of Australia ala Yarra Yering and Mount Mary." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


One of the best value for money/cellar worthy/complex-serious wines for the bucks I’ve seen this year.

About The Wine

The Renzaglia story began with US ex-pat Mark Renzaglia and his wife Sandy moving to O'Connell in 1995 with a view to planting their own vineyard. 

Mark consulted around the traps and made wine for a few other companies while their vineyard was established. Now Renzaglia wines is his full-time gig, with so Sam coming through to take over the family business.

These are great value wines from an unsung NSW wine region.

This white is blistering. It's Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc with a splash of Semillon. Flinty, crunchy and dry as a bone, this is the perfect seafood wine for any day of the week.

Additional Info

From The Producer

A blend of 40% Riesling , 40% , 20% Semillon. The Semillon came from Mt Panorama Estate and was picked on February 16, pressed and cold settled prior to a spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel. Sauvignon Blanc from Swinging Bridge (Orange) was picked first on March 3 and crushed prior to 24 hours maceration followed by 24 hours of cold settling.

The must was then transferred to a stainless steel tank where it started a spontaneous fermentation. The Riesling also came from Swinging Bridge and was picked on March 19, crushed and pressed without settling into the Sauvignon Blanc which had already commenced fermentation at this stage. Once the two musts were blended and fermentation was well underway, we put 1 barrel down for the completion of fermentation. Both the stainless steel tank and the barrel were kept on full yeast lees for a total of 6 months.

200 liters of Semillon was blended in after fermentation and the final blend was made upon the addition of the barrique to the stainless component prior to bottling at the end of August without fining, filtration and very minimal sulphur additions.

Blend : Riesling (40%), Sauvignon Blanc (40%), Semillon (20%)

The Wine Front

"And this is a cracking white. Could be one of the best value for money/cellar worthy/complex-serious wines for the bucks I’ve seen this year.Textural, long, detailed white wine of succulence, freshness and fruit-savoury nexus. It’s just straight up delightful. Scents of lemon blossom, green apple, water cracker biscuits, the palate following a similar theme but wrapped up in this awesome talc-like mineral pucker. Ultra refreshing, lots going on to savour, a complex wine of precision yet low key funk. Reminiscent great white blends of Australia ala Yarra Yering and Mount Mary. Yep." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

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?

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).
