About

About The Wine

Charlie and Simon, the duo behind the Chateau Acid wines, managed to make some excellent wines among the various catastrophes of 2020, and this new Rosso release is one of them.

100% whole bunch Syrah, sourced, as their other wines, from the organic vineyards of Rosnay in central NSW. Some fruit saw old oak, most in tank alone.

It's a dark-fruited, lively, meaty, tangily plush natural wine, made in very small amounts.

About Chateau Acid

Long time friends Charlie O’Brien and Simon Jones kicked off Chateau Acid in 2017, looking to create a fun, yet serious wine label - the name is a playful link between the acidity required for good wine and the underground wine scene of the 80s and 90s.

Fruit for their wines is sourced from the legendary organic and biodynamic vineyards at Rosnay Estate in Canowindra in the Central Ranges of NSW, and there are never any winemaking additions including sulphur.

Look out for beautiful Chardonnay, Vermentino and some delicious reds and rose.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Rosso is a new addition to the Acid range, 100% Syrah, whole bunches infused in juice for a month, then basket-pressed to old oak. Dark but light, blackberries, cured meat and spice, sweet and savoury.

2020 was a challenging year to put it mildly. Drought, dust storms, fires and then as vintaged arrived, looming torrential downpours meant that we had to pull the reds off earlier than usual. The resulting wines are light, fun, turbocharged with acidity, sweet and sour fruit, a little wild but full of intrigue.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
Drink Until : 2025

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Fantastic to see some excellent, interesting wines coming from NSW despite the devastation suffered by many during the 2020 vintage. New red from the boys at Chateau Acid, who love natural wines that come out of Italy, hence this dense, frisky Shiraz is known just as 'Rosso'. - DD Wine Crew

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 1300 668 385 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).
