Description

Gorgeous single vineyard Riesling from the high slopes of the Eden Valley, held back for just a couple of years in bottle.

Eden Riesling can be tight and austere when released in the year of vintage particularly if they are being built for the long-term, which is definitely the case here.

So the 2019 is just beautiful now, pure lemon, grapefruit, lime blossom, and a pristine, precise palate that will build and build.

Pale green colour, vibrant white currents, grapefruit and fresh lemon juice aromas. The palate is refined, with great intensity and freshness, finishing with a flicker of mineral texture. Released after 12 months of bottle maturation, this wine will mature for many years to come.

95 Points - "North-east aspect maximises morning sun, minimising sunburn. Hand-picked, chilled, whole-bunch pressed, very low extraction of 440l/t, fermented fully dry. A very expressive bouquet with a mix of pear/apple/grapefruit. The fruit flavour intensity is mouthfilling, half suggesting there's some residual sugar, but there isn't (1.1g/l of residual sugar can't be detected)." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

95 Points - "Pale lemon colour throughout the glass. Lemon balm, talcum and seashell aromatics. Lime cordial and sherbet. Chalky in texture, a good lick of crunchy phenolics balances the sweetness of primary fruit whilst acid is the powerhouse that drives it along. Classic Eden." - Stuart Knox (The Real Review)

94 Points - "Ripe soft lemon scents, lemon verbena, some lime, a slight whiff of oyster shell and petrol. It's quite soft, with a fine powdery texture, but has enough acidity to keep it trim and give it some crunch, gentle ripe lemon and pink grapefruit, some savoury flavour here too, with a quartz-y and quinine grip on a long finish. Really interesting expression of Riesling. Like it." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Sons of Eden

Sons of Eden offer some of the best value in the Barossa Valley today.

With the combination of Simon Cowham's viticultural experience and Corey Ryan's winemaking nous, they are one of the most formidable teams in the region.

The boys have successfully grown their brand with a suite of full-flavoured but well-proportioned Barossa and Eden Valley wines - predominantly reds - that have gained impressive critical acclaim.

With a suite of exceptional old-vine resources at their disposal, their wines are simultaneously approachable and cellar-worthy. These are red-blooded Barossa Valley and Eden Valley wines which over-deliver year in, year out.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
