About

About The Wine

In Giaconda you see the rare meeting of inspired winemaking and truly great terroir. The wines have a sense of gravitas to them, a precision that few can muster.

The Nantua Nebbiolo is a wine raised from the younger plantings of Nebbiolo on the great Giaconda site.

This is a more exuberant expression of the variety than the more brooding and muscular Estate version from this producer.

Made in only small quanities, this is only the first release of this wine and the prescious few bottles available are disappearing quickly into the cellars of those in the know.

Nebbiolo fan? Giaconda fan? There's some great value on offer here.

About Giaconda

There are few names in Australian wine as revered as those of Giaconda and its founder/owner/winemaker, Rick Kinzbrunner.

Since 1982, Rick has dedicated himself to the pursuit of vinous excellence in the Beechworth region. 

They are most known for their incredibly powerful Chardonnay, with Shiraz and Nebbiolo not far behind. Kinzbrunner's signature style is a rare combination of power and finesse.

For the Estate wines, production is extremely limited and they generally sell out upon release.

Giaconda is a special producer that thoroughly deserves its reputation as one of the country's finest domains.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"A washed crimson hue demonstrates the hallmark of nebbiolo. As this wine opens, a captivating potpourri of high-tone aromatics emerge; rose petals, cinnamon, sandalwood and red berry fruits. The palate is a mirror of the bouquet. Powder fine tannins and refreshing acidity herd the flavours into a long and savoury finish. The fruit is deftly positioned near the summit of perfect ripeness. Medium bodied this wine has great depth and poise." - Rick Kinzbrunner, owner/winemaker

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).
