About The Wine

Quealy owners Kathleen Quealy and Kevin McCarthy were pioneers of skin contact white wines in this country, and the Turbul Friulano is a super-duper example of the style.

It's exotic and wild in flavour, but it's the texture and structure that defines this wine. In this way it shows more like a red - it's really quite powerful and grippy but delicious at the same time! 

The Turbul is a great option for a dinner party wine to wow your friends with something different!

Friulano is an Italian grape variety pioneered by Quealy at their winery property. They concentrate the high yield potential by setting a low crop before flowering, assuring acid rich grapes with thick burnished skins. This is winemaking in the vineyard.

Friulano is served with cured meats, raw fish, creamy pasta.

My type of skinsy white

Golden in colour. I’m not sure how long this spends on skins but I’d say a good amount of time. Good as in whatever they have done, it’s working. Lovely structure. Fun but serious. Fino sherry, yellow apple, some tropical fruit and a touch of honey and ginger. This is my type of skinsy white.

I love this wine

First tasted this wine at Bentley Bar a few years ago. It is incredible. Unique taste - very herbaceous and complements vegetable dishes beautifully. I have opened bottles of this wine when I want to surprise friends!

Excellent AU fruilano to match Collio's best

Hard to find but on the lists of some of Melbourne's best restaurants, this Mornington fruilano is a real delight. Excellent with food and better than many from the variety's home region, Quealy has done an excellent job to demonstrate that we can make lesser known varietals exceedingly well

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
