About

About The Wine

Moreish, savoury Gruner Veltliner from the Carnuntum region of Austria, with approx. 10% Riesling in the blend, adding a zesty bounce.

Wild-fermented from organic fruit, with no sulphur additions, this is full of herbal life, with a long, silky ripe stone fruit palate that sings with Wagnerian power.

A few hours on skins gives the wine some texture, along with some very large oak vat maturation.

About Weingut Dorli Muhr

Weingut Dorli Murh, is named after the eponymous female owner/winemaker, the champion of Austrian red grape Blaufrankisch.

Previously a partnership with Dirk Niepoort known as Muhr-Van Der Niepoort, Dorli has been the sole owner since 2017, extending the vineyard area plot by plot, and achieving organic certification.

She is based in the winegrowing region of Carnuntum, southeast of Vienna, near the Hungarian border, the most recent Austrian wine region to earn DAC accreditation. Her most renowned vineyard on the Spitzerberg has also achieved Erste Lage (First Growth) status in Austria’s Klassifikation 2019.

Dorli makes wonderful, crunchy, pure Blaufränkisch from various sites in the stunning, limestone-rich hills of Carnuntum, as well as some complex Gruner Veltliner.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Grüner Veltliner grapes for the Ortswein Prellenkirchen are selected from a total of three parcels, all of which are located on the southern slope of the Spitzerberg, in the vineyards Ried Blauenstein, Ried Panhölzer & Ried Kranzen. The age of these vineyards is 30–40 years. In the middle of a 70+ year-old Blaufränkisch vineyard in Ried Kranzen, we found about one hundred Riesling vines. In some years, when conditions are optimal, these grapes are also used for Prellenkirchen.

Blend : Gruner Veltliner (90%), Riesling (10%)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
