About The Wine

The Delamere Blanc de Blanc is a premium vintage sparkling wine from Tasmania.

This classy 100% Chardonnay sparkling is made in the traditional method. Owners/winemakers Shane Holloway & Fran Austin bith have a deep love of Champagne and are endeavouring to produce a comparable wine style using their beautiful cool-climate fruit.

It shows fresh, racy acidity atop a bed of fluffy, brioche lees and has the fine, persistent bead that is the hallmark of the finest styles of sparkling.

This will continue to improve in bottle for many years to come.

Additional Info

From The Producer

2014 vintage delivered very small crops of exceptional quality. Spring and summer were fine with reasonably moist soil, which typically leads to higher crop levels. However, cool windy and wet weather throughout December disrupted fruit set, resulting in tiny berry bunches. The remainder of the season brought wonderful weather, which allowed full flavour development whilst retaining good natural acidity at low to moderate Baumé (Sugar content). Wines from this vintage will be highly sought after, for their rarity and quality.

Winemaking

The grapes for our Blanc de Blancs were whole bunch pressed, wild fermented followed by full malo and tiraging in October 2014. 5 years aging on lees and a low dosage of less than 2 grams allows the voluptuous flavours of the fruit to shine through. All our sparkling wines are made in the traditional method with the Blanc de Blanc seeing a minimum of 5 years ageing in total before we will release it.

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).
