About the Wine

You'll hear Alsatian people say that they are not from France, or from Germany, but from Alsace. This is because the region, which borders these two countries, has changed nationalities a few times throughout history. This makes it something of a cultural melting pot which harnesses the best elements of both French and German winemaking.

This wine comes from a selection of older vineyards and represents a refined and aromatic style of Riesling. Orange blossoms and apricots come through on the nose and the palate is soft, unctuous and delicate, with ripe citrus, stone fruits and white pepper. It finishes clean and long. Try not to share it around too liberally.

About Albert Mann

The birth of Domaine Albert Mann dates back to the 17th century and is the ongoing story of two big winemaker families, Mann and Barthelmé. The Mann's have been winegrowers since the beginning of the 17th century and Barthelmé's since 1654.

Brothers Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé continue this tradition, working entirely organically and biodynamically throughout the estate, located just outside the achingly picturesque town of Colmar.

Additional Info

From the Importer

Domaine Albert Mann sits firmly in the top rank of Alsatian wine producers. The quality of wines from here is always incredibly consistent, but at the same time has been on a constant upward curve; a fact that must be in part related to the estate’s conversion to biodynamic viticulture.

The wine is bright straw-green. Blood orange and lemon aromas. Juicy and ripe on the palate, with flavours of orange, tangerine and yellow apple. Lovely concentration here, very nicely balanced, finishing with bright acidity and lingering lemon and a lick of spice and herb. A lesson in purity!

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).
