About The Wine

As a rule of thumb, Italian white varieties are so much more about texture than they are about 'fruitiness', which is why they fit the bill for Tim Sproal's winemaking so well.

Here he combines the mouth filling, waxy savoury components of the Fiano grape with the zippy and spicy characteristics of Vermentino to make a fresh but textural white wine perfect for quaffing on its own or tackling a wide array of food.

There's very little done to this in the winemaking. It's about letting this great Heathcote fruit express itself naturally. The wine is downright delightful.

About Minim

Minim Wines is the love-child of Tim Sproal, a labour of love that started with just one tonne of Shiraz and a milk vat in a mate's garage.

Tim sources small parcels of fruit from Central Victorian vineyards that farm with care. The wines are all about texture and energy, Tim's less-is-more winemaking approach bringing a great feel to the Minim range.

These are clean and energetic natural wines with loads of personality.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Patsy is made for summer; fresh crunchy acid and good time tropical fruit, subtle white pepper and texture born from extended time on lees and a short soak on skins prior to ferment. All in stainless steel, a few days on skins, all native yeasts, very little oxygen and a small addition of sulphur prior to bottling.

Patsy is savoury, lean, crisp and textural - something to share with friends on hot days and have a good time. Not for inspiring endless critique and considered evaluation…just a nice summer drink when you need it most. Drink next to the single site barrel fermented varietal release to explore the stark difference in expression of this wonderful grape that is so happy in Central Victoria sites.

DDS review

It's right on the money. That waxy Fiano thing in the palate countered by great tight acidity. Clean and mineral charged through the mouth, with apple and pear flavours mingling amongst some spicy savoury elements. Juicy clean and succulent. Yum. Lots of personality. - Different Drop Wine Team

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 1300 668 385 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).
