2019 Moric Hidden Treasures No. 3 Riesling Furmint

Balaton, Hungary

Austrian avant-garde pairs with Hungary's Pannonian Plain in this racy, herbal white scented with honeysuckle and green apple.


Very interesting, offering so much energy and lip-smacking goodness."

About The Wine

Roland Velich might have sparked the global interest in the wines of Burgenland.

But his Hidden Treasures series uncovers the depth and breadth beyond the Pannonian plain.

Linking Austria and greater Hungary, this flat expanse is a wealth of native grapes and top winemaking talent.

Teaming up with Villa Tolnay on beautiful Lake Balaton, this honeysuckle scented, herbal white cuts local favourite Furmint with old friend Riesling, giving a refreshing crunchy green apple finish.

About Moric

Obsession breeds greatness. That's exactly what Roland Velich has.

After a decade studying the greatest wines of the world, Roland committed himself, heart and soul, to producing Blaufrankisch that could rival the great Burgundies, Barolos and Rhone Valley reds for complexity, detail and transparency of terroir.

And the result was the Moric project based in the wonderful Austrian region of Burgenland; and it might produce the best Blaufrankisch wines in the world, sourced from ancient vines, farmed biodynamically, to be drunk enthusiastically.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Very saline and ‘mineral’ style here, some floral perfume, mint, green apple and citrus, with a mouth-watering crunch and precise feel, almost briney, with a fine chalk dust texture, and a crisp and long finish with a smattering of green herb and lemon rind. Very interesting, offering so much energy and lip-smacking goodness." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 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.
