About

About The Wine

The 'Reserve Riesling' comes from a selection of younger vines, some even coming from their Grand Cru sites.

A pure, elegant nose, with mineral notes of aniseed and citrus. As a dry, mineral wine it is ideal for serving with fish, seafood and shellfish, as well as food that has a touch of spice.

So precise, and showcases excellent extension of flavour. It's some of the best buying you will see from this famed wine-growing region.

About Meyer-Fonne

Founded by Felix Meyer, Domaine Meyer-Fonne is now managed and run by the 3rd generation of the Meyer Family, with great-grandson (also named Felix) now working with his father to modernise and grow the Domaine.

Farming 15 ha of vines across 7 different communes, they produce wines from 5 Grand Cru vineyards of Alsace. The soils range from poor quality filtering alluvial deposits to rich, deep clay sandstone land, with granite in between. Organic farming practices are followed (not certified), while all work in the vineyards is done by hand.

All wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts in both stainless steel and barrel. Aged on lees and naturally stabilised, then left for extended ageing before going to bottle.

Additional Info

From The Importer

This dry Riesling is always a very smart wine for the price as it contains fruit from the younger vines from the estate, some from Grand Cru sources.  This year it shows precise and very vibrant aromas of crisp citrus fruits and red apple with an attractive floral lift. Fresh and tactile, with a supple mouthfeel that glides into a finish of yellow plum and ripe grapefruit flavours. It finishes dry, saline, full and long. This is always a superb dry Riesling and is most definitely in 2019.

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).
