About

About The Wine

This is a walk on the wild side of Marsanne.

Stuart Dudine makes this Marsanne as a classic orange wine. By fermenting this fruit on its skins, Stuart accentuates the spicy ginger notes and honeysuckle characters of the variety, as well as adding a little tannin to the mix.

Marsanne can lack structure at times but tannin here helps the framework and keeps this wine trim, taut and terrific.

Not your average Marsanne but a very cool glass of wine.

About Alkimi

Stuart Dudine started his Yarra Valley label in 2012 with an eye to producing Rhone-inspired wines in the heartland of Victorian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

After dedicating years to Syrah, Grenache, Marsanne et. al. he's broadened the scope of the label to now include Pinot and Chardonnay as well as a suite of lo-fi wines made with minimal additions but maximum attention to detail.

These are interesting, off-the-beaten-path wines from the Yarra Valley and well worth a look if you like those under-the-radar producers doing things a bit differently.

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).
