Scintillating riesling here... Hold onto your hats.

About The Wine

This is a new star Riesling in the Koerner line up.

The best block of Riesling on their Gullyview vineyard, picked a little earlier for higher acidity. Fermented in a combination of stainless and ceramic egg and left for 10 months on lees.

This is the Koerner boys going for the best and baddest Riesling they can muster. It's a blistering wine. Fine, dart-like and piercing, this is Clare Valley at its finest.

Mike Bennie was blown away in his 95 point review. Chances are, if you buy a bottle, you will be too.

About Koerner

The Koerner brothers, Damon and Jono, are on a mission to bring the classic wine styles of the Clare Valley into the modern day.

They play with a mix of 'classic' Clare Valley varieties such as Riesling, Cabernet and Malbec and a suite of alternate varieties that show a different side of this iconic Australian wine region. 

With fruit sourced from their own family vineyard and a move toward more contemporary winemaking, utilising terracotta and ceramic for fermenting and making as little additions as possible in the winery, it's easy to see why their star is on the rise.

Critic Reviews

95Points
The Wine Front

"Scintillating riesling here. Lime/lemon, citrus blossom scents, talc, mineral charm, whiff of sorbet. Palate is electric with tangy, tart acidity, wash of juicy, limey flavours, finishes with star burst of tonic water and mineral-like zestiness. Wicked drinking here, and structure, and complexity, in a light, tight frame. Hold onto your hats." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"From the Gullyview Vineyard in the Clare Valley. 46yo vines, some skin contact, fermented wild in a ceramic egg, aged on lees for 9 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fantastic concentration of flavour and all the texture - and length - you could ever hope for. It's an excellent wine, characterful, buoyant, captivating." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
