Description

Here's an emphatic statement for the potential of Nero d'Avola in Australia.

Paul and Laurie at Eldorado Road first planted Nero d'Avola on their old Glenrowan vineyard after consulting with Allesio Planeta, one of Scilily's premier producers of the variety.

Their unique patch of land is producing some outstanding fruit now only a few years in. This ludicrously small batch of just 40 dozen of a Riserva wine is the very best example they can produce.

Want to see how good this variety can be? Here's one of the very best you will find in Australia.

The 2019 Riserva Nero d’Avola comes from 2 separate ferments, both sourced from a section of our vineyard that consistently produces the best quality fruit.

It was fermented with 100% whole bunches and it all went into 3-year-old French oak.

94 Points - "Only the second release of a Riserva in Eldorado Road’s ten year history. All the fruit was grown on the home estate vineyard at Eldorado. It’s made from two parcels of fruit and it’s fair to say that a great deal of time, thought and winemaking nous went into the two separate ferments.

It’s a fine wine, full stop. Elegant, fresh and layered, the flavours and textures woven in fine, even curls. Red liquorice and coal, aromatic herbs, cherries and spices, the latter both sweet and smoked. Cedarwood oak plays role, mostly in texture but in drifts of flavour too, all of this influence appropriate and all of it delicious. Just look at the tannin profile here; it’s so intricate. It’s not a big wine by any stretch and, emphatically, it doesn’t need to be." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

96 Points - "Deep, bright purple colour with a reserved, slightly closed bouquet that's dominated by a note of reduction on first pour. The wine is full-bodied but not a blockbuster, the balance is good and the tannins are nicely balanced and provide good structure for ageing. After time in the glass, deep-set black fruit flavours and aromas of considerable charm, and a long carry. A superb wine with real potential to develop with age. It's hard to imagine a better Aussie nero." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

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.
