About

About the Wine

From the PG Queen comes this classically rich, honeysuckley wine with just 2 grams of residual sugar.

Whole-bunch pressed for texture, which along with 20% French oak maturation and regular lees stirring, has led to a generous, fulfilling wine.

Tussie Mussie is a north-facing vineyard in Merrick North, planted to Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, rich in red, ferrous soils. This old, iron-rich soil gives a mineral feel that enlivens the wine.

About Quealy

Kathleen Quealy is the winemaking soul of Mornington Peninsula, and was the first person to plant Pinot Gris in Australia. Kathleen and her husband Kevin McCarthy launched T Gallant winery in the 90s, pioneering this famous variety. Quealy Vineyards is based in Merricks North, with the winery and cellar door in the centre of the viticultural action.

Kathleen has continued to innovate - along with PG, Quealy is renowned for super-interesting expressions of Muscat and Fruilano, experimenting with different degrees of skin-contact and fermentation styles. A true industry legend!

Additional Info

From The Producer

Pinot Gris like Pinot Noir are so distinguished by their site. Tussie Mussie Vineyard, formerly a flower farm, grows in the choccy red, iron rich soil of Merricks North.

It’s a generous wine with a luscious stone fruit palate; honey, heavy bottomed pears, creamy classic Pinot Gris. The mud brick homestead and original rambling house gardens are sensitively maintained as a boutique retreat.

DDS review

Concentrated Pinot Gris, more Alsace than Italy. Love the backbone supporting the dense pear and stonefruit palate. - Different 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?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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).
