About The Wine

Watervale is one of the marquee  Riesling sub-regions of the Clare Valley. It's a region known for its elite fruit purity, particularly in Riesling.

This Riesling from Stephanie Toole at Mount Horrocks typifies this wine style. This organically grown fruit is some of the best the region has to offer and is consistently ranked amongst the top echelon of Australian Riesling.

It's a blistering wine, built as much for longevity as excellent drinking in its youth. Impeccable Clare Valley Riesling at its most pure and refined.

A Riesling purists dream.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"A riesling of the kind John Vickery might have made with the benefit of screwcaps. It has depth and attitude (like its maker), but doesn't run the risk of blowing out/softening with age. Its balance and storehouse of limes, lemons and green apples make it a surefire each way bet, now or later." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Single vineyard riesling from one of the absolute stars of the Clare Valley region. In fact – I’d reckon this riesling doesn’t get quite the recognition it deserves.Exhibit A. This is a beautiful Clare Valley riesling. It screams Clare, it insists on riesling. Lemon, lime and talc, assertive with flavour but pure and darting through the finish. Accessible now, in a delicious way, and yet made for later. You really do just want to guzzle this, even as you admire it." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Mount Horrocks Watervale Riesling vineyard, in the north eastern corner of this famous Clare Valley subregion, is planted on the very edge of the highly prized red soil over limestone.

Surrounded completely by open land where cattle graze, its relative isolation benefits the strict application of organic practices which Stephanie has adopted.

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).
