About
This is great drinking. GREAT.

About The Wine

The Queen of The Sierra wines have the same frentetic energy as their makers.

Matt Rorick and Dainelle Shehab make their Californian wines (and their Barossa Valley gear, too) at a crazy pace. Vintage is all good times, good tunes, foot-stomping, head-banging and rabble-rousing. It shows in the good-times vibes you get in each bottle.

This wine is the white blend off Matt's organically-farmed vineyard in Calaveras County. The varieties Verdelho, Muscat, and Chardonnay combine into a frisky, floral white that has excellent texture from time in barrel. It's a delicious and easy-drinking white that will have draining the bottle in no time.

About Forlorn Hope

Matthew Rorick is one of California's rockabilly winemaking superstars.

His love for the unloved and obscure varieties dotted around his homeland combined with his stripped-back, bare-knuckle winemaking style have seen his small batches of 'Rare Creatures' develop a feverish cult following in the US of A.

These rogue wines of California are some of the most exciting in the state. The Queen Of The Sierra Estate wines are grown on Matt Rorick's garden of Eden Heritage vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. The fruit is farmed without chemicals, the wines re untinkered-with aside from a dash of SO2.

Want rockabilly wine made with real heart and soul? You've found it.

"Fragrant, floral and lemony scents, some green mango, talc-minerally scents too. Juicy and lightly creamy feel in texture, ripe stone fruits the flavour, lovely as, soft creamy yeasty notes carrying through and a neat, waxy finish. Texture, personality. This is great drinking. GREAT." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
