About The Wine

FFF SB delivers excellent drinking with interest at a very modest price-point, and also a cool initialism.

This is light, crunchy and the perfect thing to keep you cool on a warm afternoon. Passionfruit, some creamy, almost saline characters, a lick of cut grass and a slip of refreshing acidity right through the wine.

Chill it and kill it.

About First Foot Forward Wines

Martin Siebert's sensational value range of wines burst onto the Yarra Valley wine scene in 2015. His day job is as vineyard manager and winemaker at Tokar Estate in the heart of the Yarra Valley - First Foot Forward is the minimum intervention wines side hustle, and a brilliant one at that.

The grapes for the range are primarily sourced from the cool, higher altitude Patch Vineyard, a unique site lovingly tended by owner Jody Dawson, on the high southern edge of the Yarra Valley.

Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are the main protagonists but look out for other varietal forays. The wines are wild yeast fermented before elevage in oak and / or terracotta eggs.

Additional Info

From The Distributor

This is a Sauvignon Blanc with lovely acidity throughout the core of the wine. The 2020 has been fermented in amphora clay pots, a bit of time on skins, unfiltered and Vegan friendly.

The fruit for this wine was picked, crushed, then cloudy juice was fermented by wild yeasts. Think guava, gunflint and lime, finishing with oyster shell like saltiness. Delicious.

Blend : Sauvignon Blanc (100%)
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2023
Bottle Size : 750ml

DDS review

Top shelf Yarra Sauvignon Blanc at eye-level pricing. We love quality SB that can carry a bit of oak maturation to deliver just a bit more complexity. - DD Wine Crew

Halliday Wine Companion

"Winemaker Martin Siebert took some liberty to adapt the press’ conveyor belt as a makeshift sorting table, ensuring squeaky-clean fruit in the ferment. Attention to detail on the sorting table is what makes this an exceptional wine. It's pristine and pure, with a line of juicy acidity. Citrussy and savoury, crisp and crunchy. Love it." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

A winner with 'red drinkers'.

Enjoyed this Sav Blanc as part of a NY Day tapas/wine matched style lunch at home with friends. Had a few 'red only' drinkers who were convinced to try it with the dish (scallop in shell and prawn lettuce cup), lots of "that's not a bad white, I could drink that" comments and they did. Great value Sav Blanc. The use of an Amphora in the making of the wine was also a great conversation starter.

Fantastic Victorian S blanc

This wine is Great value and is in the French style of Sauvignon Blanc that is hard to find in Australia if you like that kind of thing. Full flavour and not too sharp

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).
