About The Wine

Hats off to Pooley becoming Tasmania's first certifiably sustainable vineyard. Caring about the earth they farm obviously paying dividends for this top producer.

This is a top flight Gewurztraminer. The terroir of this beautiful estate shining through. The flamboyant floral, musk and Turkish Delight characters well known in the variety are calmed and composed here, set in a frame of pristine minerally acidity.

The all important balance for this variety expertly handled here by winemaker Anna Pooley. This is one of the best examples of this variety you will find from the Apple Isle.

About Pooley

Pooley is one of the leading family-owned wineries in Tasmania, renowned for their exquisite Single Vineyard examples of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Coal River region, less than an hour north of Hobart.

The family vineyard was planted in 1985 by Margaret and Denis Pooley. Today it is in the hands of the third generation of Pooleys, with award-winning winemaker Anna Pooley heading up the cellar and her brother Matt as viticulturalist. They make a killer team and the family business is going from strength to strength.

Anna's wines are pure, refined and eminently cellar-worthy. A class-act producer setting a cracking pace for all of Tasmania to follow.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Beautifully aromatic over the nose with lychee, elderflower, bergamot, rose hip and cinnamon. supportive acid boosts the freshness and holds the bright lychee character whilst allowing the fresh apple and spice to carry the mid palate through to a long finish." - Pooley Wines

elegance in a glass

I have loved the pinots by Pooley for a long time. Their wines are not fussy -- honest, well-crafted, leaving the territory and fruit to do the talking. So I was intrigued about this Gewürztraminer. It is done in a very dry style, with no skin contact, aromatic but not overwhelming. The word that springs to mind with every sip is "elegant." An outstanding drop!

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?

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).
