Wow. This is positively breathtaking...

About The Wine

There is no other way to say it, if you like Riesling, hey, if you like white wine at all, then this goes straight into the "MUST BUY" column.

According to James Halliday, this is the best value Riesling in the country this year. 

It was named in the top five Rieslings in the country this year, picking up a massive 98 points from Mr. Halliday. But that's not its first moment in the spotlight, it won the Trophy at the 2017 Limestone Coast Wine Show and has been featured in the Adelaide Review and by Windsor Dobbin, seemingly everyone who taste this sees the ludicrous value to be had.

For value for money in Australian wine, it doesn't get much better than this.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Ellis family vineyards lie in the Mount Gambier GI, located in the Kongorong area southwest of Mount Gambier. The proximity to the Southern Ocean provides the coolest maritime climate of mainland Australia, this cool climate extends the ripening of fruit throughout Autumn, ideal for accumulation of flavour and optimum ripening.

The vineyards are planted in fractured Limestone, this flinty surface contributes to the mineral elements and the hint of gun smoke character in the wine.

Blend : Riesling (100%)
ABV : 11.00%

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Wow. This is positively breathtaking, the complex spray of citrus flavours impacting the second the wine enters the mouth, and linger long after the finish. The citrus is unsweetened green grapefruit juice and zest, acidity a given but nonetheless playing an important role." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

DDS review

"Aromas and flavours of grapefruit and lime come to the fore along with hints of lemon thyme, Christmas lilies, crushed stone, almond paste and the lightest of herbal notes.Focused and energetic on the palate with a precise flow, a tight, mineral framework and a lovely wash of grapefruit and citrus as the wine trails away. Quite lovely." - Dave Brookes (The Adelaide Review)

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).
