About The Wine

The Mount Majura Riesling should be on the radar for any serious Riesling collector.

With their vineyards sitting at over 650 metres above sea level, Mount Majura specialise in premium, cool-climate wines that don’t bust the bank and have been impressing the critics for quite a few years now.

The Riesling is planted in the coolest, most south-easterly facing of their vineyards atop ancient volcanic soils. The struggle that the vines undergo to produce this incredible fruit is one of the key aspects contributing to the sheer quality of this wine. 

The 2017 release picked up a huge 96 points from James Halliday. It's a scintillating Riesling and a great advertisement for the Canberra District.

About Mount Majura

Mount Majura is one of the most exciting producers in Canberra.

They are quickly gaining fame for producing top class Rieslings and alternative varieties with sensational value across the range.

Winemaker Frank van der Loo's obsessive focus on the terroir and his attempts to find the perfect variety for each patch of dirt under Mount Majura ownership, are resulting in unique and spectacular wines for the region.

Critic Reviews

96Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Canberra riesling, when as good as this, transcends its armour of citrus flavours to take on a complex whir of pepper, jasmine and fennel, meshing with the juicy spout of crunchy acidity and mineral alike. This hits all the right notes and the end sensation is one of a thrumming joyousness, bounce and compelling length. Palpably dry despite a balancing dash of residual sugar." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Like riesling? Like Canberra District riesling? Like high quality white wine? Pitch perfect.Tight, tangy, zingy white of piercing citrus fruit character and summery freshness. It’s all Warhead lollies and lime juice, some more florals in perfume perhaps, but the gist is we’re deep in citrus territory with all the accompanying refreshing feel. Amongst that tension, a light drizzle of ‘mineral feel’, just so and delicious. Great drinking here." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Great example of Canberra District Riesling

This is a great example of Canberra District Riesling, up there with the best (e.g. Clonakilla, Ravensworth) in the region. This is a dry, minerally style with great persistence. Great value for money.

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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. 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: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
