About The Wine

This is one of the best value premium sparkling wines in the country.

The Clover Hill team produces fantastic quality at all price points, this vintage version sits right in their mid-tier and may be the best bang for buck from the whole range.

A traditional blend made with a traditional method from what was voted Tasmania's Best Vineyard in 2016. All the ducks nicely in the row here.

In her 94 point review, Curly Haslam-Coatese  dubbed it, "The best way to describe this wine is that it is quietly, yet perfectly poised."

If you want a class act bubbles which won't bust the bank, this is a very good option.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Clover Hill sparkling wine is sourced from pre-eminent vineyards in Tasmania, an area becoming acknowledged as the premier location for cool climate sparkling wine in Australia. Clover Hill’s first vintage was in 1991, which solely comprised chardonnay. Since 1994, the blend has evolved to include all three classic sparkling grapes, with pinot noir and pinot meunier added to attain the iconic style.

Clover Hill is created using traditional methods. Furthermore, portions of this wine have been aged in small-format french oak foudres and barriques to highlight the complexity that can be achieved by a sparkling house of this calibre.

The Wine Front

"Delicacy is in abundance here with the 2014 from Clover Hill. It’s a glass of sparkling wine that I wouldn’t recommend having when it is too cold as you may miss some of the more subtle flavours that are hidden within its depths. The 2014 release is full of ripe and juicy green apples, crisp strawberries amongst a backdrop of crushed almonds, hazelnuts, honey and grissini breadsticks. The acidity is upfront but so soft and mouthwatering and the flavours linger long in the mouth. The best way to describe this wine is that it is quietly, yet perfectly poised." -Curly Haslam-Coates (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"66% chardonnay, 31% pinot noir, 3% pinot meunier, 4 years on tirage, disgorged Sept '18. There is an unusually spicy array of aromas to the bouquet and depth of the fruit must have been significant (the residual sugar is 10g/l). Smart wine at the price." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
