Clean and clear, lively and so very refreshing.

About the Wine

This great value little dry white is the perfect mid-week quaffer.

Picpoul is a great alternative to crisp, dry whites such as Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling. It grows best in Picpoul de Pinet, the region considered the best Appellation for Picpoul, with low vineyards based in sand that allow this old variety to express itself properly.

It's full of ripe, sunny fruit but finishes fresh and tight through the finish - making it a great all-rounder any day of the week.

If you're looking for an easy-drinking white to accompany a fresh plate of seafood, this little beauty for under $25 is going to fit the bill perfectly.

About Clomarin

Clomarin produces their wines in La Cave de Montagnac, created in 1937 and located in the town of (you guessed it) Montagnac.

Their vineyards are located on clay-limestone soil and in an area with a Mediterranean climate, which offers a long growing season for the vines.

"Super crisp and racy, lime juice and a little ginger, tingly minerality, bright and a bit powdery to finish. It’s really lovely, this. Clean and clear, lively and so very refreshing. I imagine oysters in its near future." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

The Perfect Aperitif

In a word? Fresh.

Crisp on the nose, slightly acidic with a little minerality at the end, and an irresistible oily mouthfeel. It just makes you want to go back for more.

Delightful

I've tried six Picpouls over the last few years in my ongoing discovery of the lesser known grape varieties. This is the best. Bright, clean, flavoursome, lightweight, just asking to be matched with seafood. The French are good at making these food friendly refreshing whites from lesser varieties like Picpoul, Jacquere, Gros and Petit Manseng. Nothing brilliant, just everyday wholesome.

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).
