Description

When specialising in viticulture and oenology studies, Martin Moran became enchanted by the craft behind sparkling wines. He's certainly honed that craft, and it's evident within this sublime Blanc de Blancs.

The Chardonnay grapes for the wine are hand picked, and aged on lees for ~5 years, packing a punch of toasty flavours, as well as texture and complexity.

Dry with cutting acidity and bright fruit flavours along with an undertone of nuts and brioche, it's the perfect aperitif.

Handpicked from a small vineyard in Lenswood, comprised of three clones on three different rootstocks, planted in the early 2000s as a research trial vineyard (ex SARDI). Tiraged in November 2017 and then aged on lees for 5.5 years. The colour is slightly golden, aromas of apple, ginger and roast almonds combined with flavours of brioche, apples and vermouth alike spices, very effervescent and creamy mouthfeel, finish dry.

Mordrelle

Martin Moran was born and raised in Argentina, where his infatuation with viticulture and winemaking began as his grandfather would walk with him through their family vineyards in Mendoza.

He went on to specialise in viticulture and oenology, and eventually found himself in Australia to work vintages across the Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale regions. It was here that Martin stayed, falling in love with (and marrying) his wife Michelle and embarking on the dream of starting their own boutique label - starting with their first wine, a sparkling created just for their wedding!

They specialise in premium, aged sparkling wines, but you'll find plenty of joy in their reds and whites too.

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.
