Description

This is an excellent mature example of cool-climate Grüner Veltliner. A cellar release of one of his best-ever vintages of this cult wine, this has to be one of the greatest examples of Gruner Veltliner outside of Australia...

Grown organically on the Morrison vineyard planted by Duncan Forsyth in the late 1990s, this has great purity of fruit and shows the lovely texture and spice that this Austrian variety is known for.

Crunchy, apple-y, littered with white pepper and all the things you want in a Grüner with the added complexity and richness that can only come with bottle age.

It's just a great thing to drink and so rare of an opportunity to see this wine style hitting its peak.

"There was some of the wine sold in 2019, but a decision was made to hold off the rest of sales for a more patient release, now. Very textural, very complete. It’s a wine that sets you back. Feels very complete. Cool, green herb laced, juniper and tonic elements, nashi pear, marzipan, green almond… far out, so much going on… fine, chalky texture and exceptional length. So compact and fresh, huge energy but also reserve, if that can be a thing. It delivers huge visceral pleasure too. This is an outstanding white wine. A bit gobsmacked."

Mount Edward

Mount Edward is a team of passionate winemakers/rabble-rousers who have banded together to form a collective that is considered at the forefront of the Central Otago avant-garde.

Duncan Forsyth is one of the founders and spearheads this revolutionary project, with Swiss winemaker Anna Riederer heading up the day-to-day duties and crafting the wines.

They've made plenty of noise since the project's inception in 2003 when Duncan met co-founder John Buchanan.

Though they don't take themselves too seriously, the wine themselves are very serious indeed and a receiving plenty of attention.

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.
