About The Wine

Stuart Pym has a soft soft for Sauvignon Blanc and believes when treated with respect it can make wines that are both, "serious and sophisticated".

His Queen of the Earth Sauvignon Blanc is his finest expression of the variety, combining his best fruit of the vintage with a a single 600l demi-muid where it's housed for both ferment and maturation.

Released with some a little more time in bottle than your average Sauvignon, this is a pure, explosive example of the variety which was judged by James Halliday as his Sauvignon Blanc of the Year.

About Flowstone

Stuart Pym is one of Margaret River's most respected winemakers.

James Halliday said of his maiden vintage “There has never been a more stellar launch of a new winery venture than this”. A huge call from a guy who has seen them all in Aussie wine. But the wines speak for themselves.

Their range is a beautifully presented mix of tried and true Margaret River staples, i.e. Cab Merlot and Chardonnay and some more inventive and innovative wines, such as his excellent Cabernet Touriga.

These wines are bold, balanced and full of flavour with great value on offer at all price points.

Halliday Wine Companion

"Fermented and matured in a single 600l demi-muid. This is very different to its Margaret River sibling, still exceptionally powerful, yet with extraordinary purity to its citrus-dominant varietal expression." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 1300 668 385 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).
