It really is a humbling experience when you think about the length of history here. 390 years ago, Australia was still a theoretical place on European maps and Shakespeare had been dead for only 13 years. For a winery to still exist, and still make wine, and STILL be regarded as a leading example, is astonishing.

But the humility doesn't end there. Trimbach didn't release this to pat themselves on the back. This is a tribute to the vineyards, soils and occasional growers who have made 390 years possible.

This really is everything you want it to be, simultaneously deep and lively, rich and delicate. You can expect a core of rich citrus here, with white blossoms, white peach and flourishes of beeswax, cinnamon and clove. It has great balance and a length worthy of 390 years of experience.

Wine from a selection of plots in the colors of the mosaic of Alsace terroirs. A tribute to the talented winegrowers who have followed us for decades and who share the same passion for exceptional Rieslings. From North to South, these renowned Grands Terroirs and localities sparkled in 2016, the year of the 390th anniversary of Maison Trimbach 1626-2016.

​Golden robe with shimmering green reflections. It reveals with finesse its bouquet of ripe fruits with white cherries and its aromas of flowers. Gourmet and seductive on the first palate, its sparkling and crystalline acidity gives it aromatic precision as well as superb length. This dry Riesling is in line with the great Rieslings of the 2016 vintage.

94 Points - "Vivid straw-green. Rich aromas of soft citrus fruits, honey and minerals. Dense, juicy and tactile on the palate, featuring expressive flavors of apricot, beeswax and spices. This fresh, deep, suave Riesling showcases a lovely fruit intensity and boasts an unctuously sweet personality (only 6 g/L residual sugar but actually sweeter-tasting than that number indicates). Made with the best grapes from Trimbach’s many vineyards (previously, they have made a 350th anniversary wine in 1976, a 375th anniversary wine in 2001 and now this one) including such famous grands crus as the Osterberg and the Schoenenbourg."

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.
