Description

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.

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.

90 Points - "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.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
