About The Wine

There's a promising future for Malvasia in the Riverland.

This Italian native suits the region to a "T". It ripens late yet holds its acidity, even in hot, dry climates. Greg is pumped about the future possibilites for this variety - so here he takes it for a spin to see what it can do with a little skin contact. About a third of the fruit was skin-fermented for two week bringing out the moreish chewy tannin and bold fruit flavours that are the hallmarks of Malvasia.

It's not quite a full-blown orange wine, more a white wine with plenty of punch. It's a Hell of a ride.

About Delinquente

Greg Grigoriou's mission is simple.

He is trying to make interesting yet smashable wines from some unique fruit growing in the Riverlands. This stuff is all about fun times and chilled wines.

Bright, energetic and full of personality, these wines offer a great entry point for people looking to explore alternative varieties.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Malvasia is a variety we’re really excited about - big bunches, intense fruit flavour, late ripening and holds onto acidity in hot weather – perfect for The Riverland! The fruit for this wine was hand picked and then vinified in two different ways - one third was whole bunch pressed, the balance fermented on skins for 14 days. Each parcel was aged separately in used French barriques for about 8 months, before being racked once and blended back together prior to bottling. This wine sees no additions of any kind save for a small amount of SO2 at bottling.

Blend : Malvasia (100%)

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Working with the fruit in this way has allowed us to create a layered and very unique wine, with length and drive, funk and clarity. Its super aromatic on the nose, and while initially you get that pop of intense stone fruit sweetness, its balanced out by the savoury, briney, almost saltiness imparted by time on skins. The acid line holds beautifully to cut through all this and provide the length and drinkability required. Allow fish and chips, or spaghetti with swordfish and capers, to find a new friend." - Greg Grigoriou

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).
