About The Wine

Slowly but surely, the Two Tonne Tasmania range is expanding.

This suite of releases know as Ziggurat are designed to be, "adventurous in winemaking style, creative and unique each year, but above all, they are fresh and textural."

The 2017 white is comprised of mostly Riesling which was fermented in barrel and in tank, and a dash of Gewürztraminer which was fermented on skins for a week.

It's a lifted, aromatic, white designed to be food-friendly or a delicious aperitif. The perfect all-rounder for the warmer months.

About Two Tonne Tasmania

With the slogan ‘small parcels, big love’, Ricky Evans' thoughtful winemaking approach has seen his southern star rise rapidly with a swag of accolades in a relatively short time.

Since his serendipitous entry into the much saught after sub-region of the Tamar Valley in 2013, he has garnered a reputation for producing some of Tasmania's most exciting and hard-to-get small batch wines.

Pinot Noir is Ricky’s main game, and he plays hardball. His Pinots show brilliant light and shade. A gentle touch in the winery allows fruit and vineyard to shine - a theme that carries through his excellent regional examples of Riesling and Chardonnay.

The wines of TTT typify the purity and elegance of modern Tasmania.

It was blended with a small amount (10%) of Gewurztraminer, which spent 7 days in a whole berry fermentation, a form of carbonic maceration, before being pressed to an old oak, where it matured separately until blending.

Blend : Riesling (90%), Gewürztraminer (10%)

The Wine Front

"Delicious wine here, imbued with complexity, dimensions of acid, plump fruitiness, cool minerality and a squeaky grip through its length. It refreshes the palate with a wash of limey juiciness and there’s prickles of ginger and lemongrass lending detail. Super fragrant too. It takes me straight to larb or hot Thai salads. Mouth-watering and minerally finish seals the deal. Go long before summer is out." - 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 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).
