About
Beautiful expressions of one of the superior white grape varieties on earth...

About The Wine

South Africa has long been pursuing excellence in Chenin Blanc, some of their finer examples are considered some of the best in the world.

Perhaps it should come as no surprise that a South African is taking Australian Chenin Blanc to the next level - ladies and gentleman, this is one serious Chenin Blanc.

In an effort to highlight the variety's ability to articulately communicate terroir, Tripe.Iscariot owner/winemaker Remi Guise is releasing a pair of Margaret River subregional expressions of this often maligned grape. They were stunning to try back to back. This, the Karridale wine, is a tighter, leaner, more mineral-driven style. Excellent release from Remi. He's on point with his pet variety once again.

About tripe.Iscariot

Remi Guise is starting something very compelling in Western Australia.

His idea for tripe.Iscariot centres around the thesis that from 'berry to stalk' the whole of the plant should be used in the winemaking process.

No waste, no 'cleaning up' of the wines. Driving to make the most character filled and unique wines that any site can produce.

The wines are fascinating and complex alt-stylings of undervalued Margaret River varieties.

Dig in, this is a project to keep a close eye on.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Hand-picked from 22 year old vines and de-stemmed to open-fermentor. Fermented on skin for 8 days and basket pressed straight to old barrels, where the wine finished primary fermentation. Malolactic fermentation was allowed to occur and was stopped based on taste. The wine was barrel aged for 10 months, during which the barrels underwent battonage every two weeks. The wine was then removed from barrel, clarified and bottled.

Blend : Chenin Blanc (100%)
ABV : 12.5%

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Salt, nuts, hay, green herb, cucumber and tonic water. Good perfume! Tight and brisk, pent up and dart-shaped, a little trickle of slipperiness somewhere in there, but finishes chalky and limey. Such great texture, such great energy, such length! This is a ripper. Wicked, lighter but concentrated white wine. Dive in. Get something salty alongside on a plate." - Mike Bennie (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 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).
