Gestalt Wines

About The Wine

A vanguard producer of the Adelaide Hills takes on Hunter tradition. And they nail it.

Shiraz and Pinot Noir have always gotten on well. Some of the great old wines of Australia were made through a righteous pairing of these two varieties.

The word 'Gestalt' translates loosely to 'greater than the sum of its parts'. That's certainly the case in this wine.

The silky, spicy core of cool-climate Shiraz meets the beautiful perfume and energy of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir - it's a winning combination.

About Gestalt

This funky young label is the brainchild of Craig Turnbull and Anthony Pearce.

Gestalt (meaning an organised whole considered to be greater than the sum of its parts) is about balanced, youthful wines sourced from small organically grown vineyards around South Australia.

Whether it is whacky blends of uncool varieties such as Savagnin and Petit Manseng or pure single vineyard, single varietal expression, there is something about these wines which make you want to keep coming back for more!

From The Producer

A blend we’ve fallen instantly in love with. An extremely complex nose opening with plum and cherry with sweet floral highlights over a dense, spicy core of oregano, cloves, cinnamon, tobacco and rhubarb. The fresh, smooth palate brings blackberry, mulberry pie, chocolate, toffee apple and liquorice. A beautiful, velvety wine with attractive, tightening tannins on the finish.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Gestalt wines are hitting the zeitgeist mark but also producing wines of accessibility. That’s the matrix I would like to see more of! Here’s a rendition of the Hunter Valley classic blend.Hit of clove and cinnamon spice, red cherries, cranberry, something faintly meaty, everything good in bouquet. Soft and plush in the palate, slightly soupy, but the feel is perky and there’s a nice tart, amaro tang to acidity in the darker, sour cherry fruitiness. Fun thing to drink." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Juicy and delicious

This blend drinks absolutely brilliantly, really juicy, luscious and very glugable.

Nose of spice and clove with dark cherry and plum. On the pallate it's quite rich (definitely more shiraz than pinot here) with the cool climate shiraz giving all the texture and mouthfeel and the pinot serving up sour black cherry, spice and lovely acid.

This works and is wonderful. Buy 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).
