About The Wine

Larry Jacobs and his Hahndorf Hill team are pioneers in Australia when it comes to this classic Austrian grape variety, Grüner Veltliner.  This is their 'entry level' version but it really is so much more than that, with a swag of Trophies, Gold Medals and huge reviews under its belt in recent years.

As the HH team say themselves, "White Mischief is our exciting New World version of the more traditional styles of Gruner Veltliner", with the focus on bright aromatics and vibrant tropical and citrus fruit.

It's an immediately appealing and versatile white, and a wonderfully priced introduction to this variety with so much local potential.  Enjoy!

Halliday Wine Companion

"Made in a New World fruit-driven style emphasising a broad range of varietal primary fruits. Hand-picked, chilled for 24 hours in small slotted bins, pressed, free-run fermented separately from the pressings then blended back to provide textural play, left on gross lees for a time." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Excellent intensity. Juicy, pulpy citrus and melon, pepper and apple. A whisper of woodsmoke too. Somehow manages to have both crunch and texture. It works and then some." - Campbell Mattinson (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).
