About the Wine

Pinot Gris is one of the four "noble" white varieties of the Alsace region in France (alongside Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Muscat), and it's possible to find it in many styles, from light to full bodied, and bone dry to sweet.

Willm Alsace Pinot Gris falls within the lightly sweet category. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats over 4-6 weeks, after which the wine was matured on its fine lees for two to three months.

The resulting wine is light and elegant with fragrant aromas of peach and apricot. There is an excellent balance between the sweetness and acidity, making it a great wine to pair with seafood, white meats, or stir fries.

About Maison Willm

In 1896 the Willm family founded the Willm wine estate, based in the village of Barr in beautiful Alsace region, not far from Strasbourg. It gained fame both for exceptional Gewurztraminer that was exported globally, and also for selling wonderful local snail dishes.

With local sustainable growers and with their own grand cru vineyards Willm spans the spectrum of Alsace wines from bargain joys to the greatest aromatic wines in the world.

From the Producer

Steady rainfall during spring encouraged moderate growth of the vines from mid-April. The dry period in July would not cause any damage to the grapes protected by the dense canopy of springtime leaves. The life-giving heavy rainfall at the beginning of August and the modest quantity of grapes hastened the harvest. Small bunches, rich in aromatic compounds with very litte juice produced fresh and expressive wines with beautiful balanced acidities and perfect sugar content. A fine vintage, to compare to 2017 and 2010.

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).
