Alsatian Pinot Gris, with a textural mouthtfeel and just a hint of sweet fruit.



Here’s a stunning wine for lovers of rich Alsace pinot gris,

About the Wine

A multi-vineyard blend, the Roche Calcaire Gris is intentionally made to style, with consistency vintage on vintage, the driving factor in what parcels of fruit Olivier chooses to use in any given year.

Complex fruit aromas; think stone fruit, autumn orchard fruits as well as an underlying minerality (like all their wines), drive the intense nose here. It’s a wine that is ripe and approachable right on release, though again like all their wines will reward those who have patience.

A beautiful velvety mouth texture that shows great energy, lives in perfect harmony with the natural acidity creating a perfect balance with the slight residual sugar. It’s a mouth-party kind of wine for sure!

About Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Current winemaker Olivier Humbrecht is the latest custodian of this famous Domaine which has an unbroken winemaking lineage in Alsace since 1620.

Also an MW, Olivier was the first French winemaker to attain this prestigious title and remains one of the few global winemakers who have committed to this intense and some would say insane pursuit.

One of the hallmarks of every Zind-Humbrecht wine has been its overriding sense of terroir; their focus on their vineyard sites is paramount, with every aspect of their winemaking and viticulture tailored to that goal. Since 2002 they have been certified both organic and biodynamic.

Additional Info

From the Producer

All Pinot Gris vineyards located on a limestone geology on the Domaine have in fact a single vineyard status (Clos Windsbuhl, Clos Jebsal, Heimbourg and Rotenberg). Most vintages, this wine is made from the young vines of Pinot-Gris planted in the early 90s on the Clos Windsbuhl. Some years, we decide to add some other vineyards. In 2019, the production of Clos Jebsal, Clos Windsbuhl and Heimbourg were added to the Roche Calcaire.

Critic Reviews


"Here’s a stunning wine for lovers of rich Alsace pinot gris, the very lively acidity enabling it to carry a hint of sweetness without any trouble at all. Serious, chalky structure behind all the flesh and wonderfully bright citrus character at the powerful finish. From biodynamically grown grapes." -

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.

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 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.
