Description

Rotem and Mounir Saouma own 8.4ha of vineyards in Chateauneuf-du-Pape specifically for the production of red wines, with a focus on Grenache, which thrives in the Southern Rhone. They also acts as negociants in Burgundy, employing many of the same techniques in both regions, and winning heaps of praise for their wines.

Grapes for the Omnia come from five parcels within Chateauneuf-du-Pape, with the majority coming from Pignan, which Mounir believes is one of the most elegant sites in the region.

As one might expect, this is a complex and amazingly perfumed wine, with black, red and blue fruits in abundance, wonderful texture, and a flavour that just goes on forever. While it's drinking brilliantly now, it will cellar for 20 years.

Omnia, meaning ‘ALL’ is a blend albeit 80% Grenache with the rest made up with the other 12 varieties. It’s a blend of five villages from 7 different vineyards. Cold soaked for 7/11 days with a mixture of wholebunch and crushed grapes then allowed to warm up when ferment starts naturally. Strictly no pumping over of pigeage ‘Why do you want to chase colour, do you drink or taste it?’ as Mounier tells me. Free run and pressings separated and aged in Demi muid (500ltrs) new and aged, Foudre (2300 litres), cement natural eggs and cement tank. NO RACKING or sulphur of 2 years whilst aging.

96 Points - “A dreamy wine, with a plume of incense, mulled raspberry and red tea aromas curling up from the glass, followed by a very silky and refined feel to the mix of gently mulled red fruit, singed wood spice and floral notes. The perfume carries through the finish authoritatively, leaving fresh and dried fruit, sous-bois and mineral notes in its wake. A beautiful and distinctive wine. Best from 2023 through 2040” - James Molesworth (Wine Spectator)

96 Points - “Vivid ruby color. A complex, deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, potpourri and smoky minerals, and an exotic Mediterranean spice quality builds as the wine opens up. Shows impressive depth as well as energy on the palate, offering deeply pitched black raspberry, boysenberry and lavender pastille flavors that slowly firm up and become spicier on the back half. Finishes sappy, gently tannic and extremely long, leaving suave spice and floral notes behind” – 93-96 Points – Josh Raynolds (Vinous)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
