About

About The Wine

Barney Flanders makes very fine Rosé.

This is made from hand-picked Pinot Noir, hand sorted, whole bunched pressed and left on skins for about 24 hours.

In this release he has managed to perfectly preserve all of Pinot’s natural delicacy and nuance.

It's dry, delicate and beautifully perfumed, perfect for those seeking a classy, complex and savoury modern Rosé.

Gorgeous Rosé from Barney, surely one of his best to date.

About Garagiste

Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders.

After leaving Allied Wines in 2003 he embarked on a mission to produce small batch premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay under his own label in his beloved Mornington Peninsula.

Barney loves the sub-regionality to be exploited in Mornington Peninsula, the slight alterations in aspect and soil profile within this small wine producing region provide him with the scaffolding around which he builds his stunning harem of small batch wines.

They are only ever made in small quantities so time is of the essence if you want to explore the world of Garagiste.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Rose petals and a little reduction adds complexity. Gentle flavours of strawberry and watermelon, nice savoury drying tannins. It's slightly creamy but remains very fresh. Lovely wine. Classy Rosé. - Different Drop Wine Team

Halliday Wine Companion

”Eclectic, aromatic and idiosyncratic rose that is 100% pinot noir. Lifted spicy floral perfume, not unlike gewurztraminer, Davidson plums and preserved lemons. Slippery, soft texture giving the impression of sweetness, but drying to a long citrus finish. Cool, interesting, off-piste wine.” - David Bicknell (Halliday Wine Companion)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

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).
