About The Wine

Scintillating Chenin Blanc straight out of the West and the hands of Rob & Genevieve Mann.

This vineyard was planted by Rob and his father Tony over 25 years ago. This is only the first release of Chenin from this site under the Mann's label but it has come out all guns blazing.

The knock on WA Chenin Blanc has always been the lack of character and concentration: not the case here. This is a laser beam of apple, quartz, flint and lime. It twist and turns like a knife through the mouth. This will cellar a dream.

Just the first release and straight to the front of the line of Australian Chenin Blanc. Bravo.

About Corymbia

Corymbia is the latest chapter in the story of one of the founding families of WA wine. The Manns have grown grapes and made wine in the area for over a century. Generations of knowledge and understanding has been handed down from parents to children, now to Rob & Genevieve Mann, who have distilled that knowledge into their budding label, Corymbia.

These are organically-farmed, single-vineyard wines that have real heart and integrity. They are tightly wound, firm in structure and show a level of tension and definition that you rarely see in a brand so young.

Corymbia are taking the West by storm, claiming awards and accolades galore. You're watching a historic wine family with a fresh new vehicle to showcase their knowledge - it's one of the most exciting new wine ventures in the country currently.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Our first release of Chenin Blanc! We’re a little excited to welcome this wine to our family. Rob and his father, Tony Mann, planted the Chenin Blanc vines together on their family property more than 25 years ago. We have put in the hard work in the vineyard, transitioning to organic farming with acute attention to detail, to ensure we continue the Mann family tradition of creating remarkable wines with a unique sense of place.

The grapes were harvested by hand over 3 days and whole bunch pressed prior to natural fermentation. A portion was matured in seasoned French oak barriques for 4 months prior to blending and bottling. The wine shows distinctive characters of beeswax and pear with a long, vibrant, saline finish. It’s so salivating, it’s the perfect drink for every occasion.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"It's gently spiced with pepper and cinnamon quills. It's floral with some fresh herbs, poached apple, bees wax and refreshing lemon barley water flavours. The palate is altogether racier, almost riesling-like acidity keeping this long and pure with the right amount of phenolics adding that extra layer." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Precise and racy style, kept in check with limey acidity and chalky phenolic grip. Actually, so much grip, rivulets of talc-and-salt-like pucker and chew. Serious structure and finesse in tow. Lime, tonic water, mixed minerals. Whoosh. Belter of a wine." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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).
