About the Wine

If Pinot Gris/Grigio floats your boat, then give this little number from Sam Scott should hit the spot.

It's Adelaide Hills fruit made in two stages. First, keep it fresh and bright with early picking and quick pressing avoiding any tannin or chew - pristine juice is the most important. Then with careful and clever winemaking, Sam weaves savoury elements throughout the wine with intentional use of oxygen and lees.

The final result is a wine that is both fresh and textural at the same time. It's Pinot Grigio built for drinking with food or without.

From The Producer

Glendeahl Vineyard, Lobethal, Ashwood Vineyard, Woodside & Maple Ridge Vineyard, Hahndorf, Adelaide Hills Vibrant, racy and bright sums up how I think Grigio should be. Aromas of Nashi pears and green apples, which are also found on the dry, crisp refreshing palate. Great intensity and liveliness.

The central ranges of the Adelaide Hills have elevated, cool, south and southeast facing slopes, and these are my pick for Pinot Grigio. Pinot Grigio likes to throw a decent crop so shoot and bunch thinning are necessary to give us the right balance on the vine. The grapes are handpicked, chilled overnight in a large cool room and then whole bunch pressed the following day. This is to get the most pristine free-run juice possible, with no phenolics.

After we have gone to all those careful lengths we take the gloves off, allow the juice to oxidize and then grab some fluffy lees into the ferment. This is where we get the savoury note to the bright, vibrant wine. Bottled in June 2017.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Spiced pear and creamy cashews, a hint of green apple and crisp as a winter morning. It puts on weight in the glass as it warms up, there's a little more in this than a straight up and down Grigio and its all the better for 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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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).
