About The Wine

It's been a whirlwind journey for Dan Graham, the man behind Sigurd.

One barrel in 2012 has lead to many in 2017, the scope of this side project taking on a life of its own. Get on board, the wines are killer.

This is a mash-up of several aromatic varieties: Riesling, Garganega, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay & Viognier all get a spot in the lineup for 2017.

With all those big personalities at play, it's amazing how composed and balanced the wine feels.

It's silky and smooth, as you'd expect it's wildly aromatic and just a pleasure to drink.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Stonefruit and florals, spice and a hint of green camomile tea. It builds thich through the mouth with loads of texture built in but it cleans up nicely through the finish with a zing of grapefruit and orange blossom. Cool wine. Lots going on but easy as to knock back. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Lovely wine. Bright, fresh, textural, dialling in a good deal of complexity set to stacks of vitality. It opens up beautifully in the glass too. Perfume of nashi pear, Real Lemonade, ginger, with the palate on a similar track. Medium weight, fine chalkiness, squishy citrus finish. This is much more about texture than the full assault of structural orange wine, though it would loosely fall under that umbrella term. Like." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Riesling (50%), Gewurtraminer (27%), Garganega (14%), Chardonnay (5%), Viognier (4%). The white grapes that were picked for the 2017 Sigurd white started early February with the picking of Gewurtraminer, which was then fermented on skins for 10 days before being pressed off and into old French oak puncheons (500ltr).

The Garganega was fermented out to dryness on skins which was about 7 days. Pressed off old French puncheon (500L). The Riesling came in last in mid March from the High Eden valley from the Barossa. 50% was whole bunch fermented for 12 days the remainder pressed into oak French oak 300 ltr barrels.

All wines finished ferment in oak and then were left on their lees for 5 to 6 months before being racked of lees and bottled straight away with a small addition of sulphur.

FaQs

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?
