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 losely 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!

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)

Additional Info

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.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

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?

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).
