About The Wine

There aren't many wines made from this variety in Aus, and less that are anywhere near as delicious as this little number from Somm-turned-winemaker, Louisa Chalmer.

Picked from Lou calls, "surely one of the most spectacular vineyards in the King Valley", this spent some time fermenting as whole bunches with a little foot-stomped juice over the top, the oxygen and skin contact really ramping up the volume of flavour and texture in this delicious release.

Only the teeniest, tiniest amount of sulphur was used. It's a cracking amber wine from an exciting new producer.

From The Producer

Vineyard & Viticulture

From what is surely one of the most spectacular vineyards in the King Valley. Around 450m above sea level (asl), the soils are iron-rich red clay, the vineyard lies on an east-facing slope. As such, there is a high diurnal temperature variation and a propensity for the soils to retain cool and moisture, contributing to high acidity and floral notes in the wines whilst the grapes achieve optimum ripeness. The grapes are unirrigated, cropped at low levels (around 2t/acre), hand picked, copper and sulphur applied when necessary (generally 1-2 applications/year). Glyphosate applied under vine rows (we’re working on this!), although withholding periods etc are maintained.

Winemaking

Hand-picked in the early morning, the grapes were left whole bunch, sorted, then pigeaged on the top layer to create a protective juice covering, whilst bunches at the bottom of the ferment were left whole, so some carbonic maceration took place (~40%). Left on skins for a total of ten days, the ferment was gently rolled every three days or so to move the juice/grapes around. Pressed off to older French oak& hand bottled in September 2017with 7ppm sulphur.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Pours a hazy, honeyed orange with a rose hue. Floral nose with apricot, nutmeg, green pepper and almond. The palate is all about leatherwood honey, subtle sweet spice, and tangelo acidity wrapped in fine, savoury tannins." - Louisa Chalmer, Winemaker

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).
