Description

A tiny little 1.2ha vineyard, the Clos Hauserer was the creation of Oliver’s father, who cobbled together a collection of rows to form a coherent block of Riesling vines in 1973.

A super energetic nose is a very cool introduction to this wine, minerality and purity literally oozing from its juicy pores.it oozes mineral greatness and purity. The palate is tonic, sharp, salivating and one can feel the limestone soils through a mouthfeel that finishes dry and persistent.

While this is a wine that is made for cellaring, there is still an immense attractiveness to it in its youth. The kind of wine you buy multiple bottles of, just to enjoy throughout its evolutionary journey.

The Clos Hauserer is lying on the same mother rock as the Hengst: a siliceous marl limestone from the oligocen period, but with a top soil layer much thicker (about 1 meter). This vineyard enjoys a warm micro-climate in summer, but the soil remains cool and the vines never suffer from drought. Like many wines produced on this geology, the Clos Hauserer is slow to ferment. The 2019 was harvested at a perfect ripeness and finished bone dry.


96 Points - "With its cornucopia of yellow fruit, floral notes and wet-stone character, this is at once fleshy and enormously structured. Nothing opulent or warm about it at all, though. In fact, the very long finish is decisively cool. You really need some time to take in this embarrassment of riches! From biodynamically grown grapes." - JamesSuckling.com

96 Points - "This tiny parcel (1.2ha), planted in 1973, always produces vibrant and energetic wines. The 2019 offers herbs, lemon, peach and mineral aromas, intertwined with some racy and subtle gunflint aromas. The palate is tense, very long, with a fine-grained texture and much freshness. Despite its well-managed acidity, this wine has depth, is fleshy, and has remarkable purity." - Yohan Castaing (Decanter)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
