About The Wine

Gruner Veltliner is showing plenty of promise on the Apple Isle. Plantings are few and far between at the moment, but likely we will see more in the ground over the coming years thanks to tasty examples like this.

This offering from Stefano Lubiana comes with a little bottle age, the texture filling out in bottle, the deliciousness growing to breaking point.

It's only made in tiny amounts, almost all of this is sold through cellar door. 

We managed to secure a little, check it out while you can!

About Stefano Lubiana

Steve and Monique Lubiana were pioneers of biodynamic farming in Tasmania. 

Their gorgeous estate was the first to adopt the principals of biodynamics in 2008. Since then the quality of the Stefano Lubiana premium range has soared. The wines are immaculate: Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sparklings all packed with flavour intensity and perfectly balanced.

As Mike Bennie observed, "Geez, there’s been some wind in the sail on their estate in southern Tasmania. This is top notch stuff right here."

Steve, a fifth-generation winemaker, is now one of Tasmania's leading producers, no doubt about it.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Vineyard blocks: 100% estate grown, hand-picked, single block.

Geology: Mix of grey gravelly loam over gravel and red loam over old riverbed.

Vineyard management: 100% certified biodynamic, hand-picked, then fruit is sorted by hand on our vibrating table.

Winemaking notes: After Steve’s vintage at Pittnauer in Austria in 2012, and seeing some exceptional examples of Grüner Veltliner, he had the crazy idea to graft some vines over to see how the variety would perform. Well, the wines have exceeded all expectations with Tasmania’s cool, mild climate seeming a perfect match for this aromatic and textural Austrian variety. It produces wines of lovely softness and balance but with aromatics more akin to German whites. Best of both worlds, really.

Wine notes: Inviting floral and citrus notes are displayed in a wine that is part Riesling and part Pinot Gris in texture & style.

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

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).
