Excellent thing this.

About The Wine

Gewurztraminer is a wonderful grape that comes in all shapes and sizes. The volume of perfume and flavour that it brings to the table makes it an ideal candidate for a bit of skin contact.

This is wild fermented, cloudy, crazy Chardonnay fermented on Gewurztraminer skins for that extra exotic kick that the variety brings.

It's just an awesome expression of the skin-contact winemaking. It captures the wild floral aromatics of Gewurz but with an extra level of complexity in tow.

Great stuff. One of the standouts of the 2018 Brave New Wine release which picked up 94 points from Mike Bennie.

About Brave New Wine

It is a Brave New World and these are, in every sense, Brave New Wines.

This range is brought to you by husband and wife duo Andries and Yoko Lüscher-Mostert. They are making painfully small amounts of fascinating, experimental and delicious wine from some superb vineyards in Great Southern.

With a vision of acquiring their own vineyard in the future, they are currently content to make wines that truly thrill them. These are natural wines crafted without additions but with bucket-loads of love and skill.

Some of the most intriguing vino in WA and definitely a winery to keep an eye on.

The Wine Front

"Ginger and lemon scents, whiffs of honey and ripe apple. Fragrant and enticing aromas. Palate is chewy and chalky yet holds a bright juiciness too. There’s a kind of lemon-ginger tea feel to the wine, a touch tonic-like, and all up really appealing as a some of flavour and texture. Excellent thing this." - 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).
