About The Wine

The Wild Gruner is part of Hugh Guthrie's range of 'concept' wines. This range is about pushing certain varieties to their limits and exploring the full range of flavours and textures that can be created with creative winemaking.

It's is a very interesting look at this Austrian variety. It takes the classic varietal notes of floral tones and white pepper to the next level.

After being destemmed and crushed, the fruit was fermented in old puncheons where it sat on solids for several months prior to bottling. Hugh is going for added grip and texture in this often neutral variety and this is a very successful example of just that.

About Guthrie Wines

Hugh Guthrie is making some very smart wines from the Adelaide Hills.

On one hand he offers excellent value classic styles of Chardonnay, Syrah and the like and on the other he gets a little experimental with some of the new European varieties becoming more and more popular.

Hugh delivers on both fronts, with his lo-fi winemaking delivering delicious results at truly great prices.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Wild Gruner is all about texture. Perfect handpicked bunches were crushed and destemmed. The berries then spent time on skins before gentle pressing to old french puncheons barrels. After a wild ferment the wine sat sur lie for several months before blending.

The Wild Gruner displays all the classic characters of white pepper, citrus and apple. It has a beautiful milky texture with some welcomed grip.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Green apple and a dusting of pepper. Fairly classic nose with some added layers of funk, vanilla and nuts. There's so much more weight here than your average Gruner. It's round and voluptuous with soft grip to it and a milky mid palate. Yummy stuff. - Different Drop Wine Team

Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented in French oak (50% new), matured for 3 months on lees. A strong varietal affirmation on the bouquet, then a juicy, lingering palate." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

    Interesting, needs breathing to open

    Less about the fruit ( think Granadilla ) , more about the texture.

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).
