Description

Not what you would expect from a California Sauvignon Blanc, this wine is a showcase for the small-batch wine project that is Lieu Dit.

A familiar style to us antipodes, this wine is New Zealand-esq with its nose; grassy, gooseberry, green peppers, green melon, with a generous herbaceous character - we’re pretty well acquainted with this drill. On the palate the old-world intentions of the wine come into sharper focus, as it's tight and zippy with flavours of citrus, lime and apple.

The finish is quite mineral, focused, and speaks more to Sancerre than to the riper, richer styles tone comes to expect of California and other warmer climate offerings.

A combination of both tank and barrel fermentations that are aged in neutral barrels. We source our fruit from three vineyards in Happy Canyon called Grassini, McGinley, and Star Lane. Varying soils of sand, shale, and gravel at Star Lane and heavier clays with larger yellow and red chert and serpentine rocks at both McGinley and Grassini.

91 Points - "Lieu Dit's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc bristles with energy. Green, grassy Sauvignon aromatics open up first, leading to a range of orchard fruit, mint, lemon peel and sage flavors. Medium in body and steely, the 2019 hits all the right notes. The 2019 is a blend from Happy Canyon Vineyard and McGinley and shows just how expressive and nuanced Sauvignon Blanc can be in the Santa Ynez Valley." Antonio Galloni (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.
