Description

Zesty but textural Rose made from Australia's only plantings of the Rondinella red grape variety, which hails from the Veneto region.

Made in the Saignee style, so a very pale salmon colour hints a lightish wine but this is a complex, serious rose with some fine tannins and a spicy finish.

Made using the classic saignée method, draining the juice after a short time in contact with the grape skins, this palest pink, spicy rosé displays a dry creamy palate with refreshing minerality balanced by soft tannins.


Ornithologists would recognise the colour of FREEMAN Rondo Rosé 2020 as matching the eye of a partridge, a bright salmony pink complementing the beguiling berry and lime blossom aromas, characteristic spice and refreshing, lingering palate. This wine is a delicious aperitif – serve chilled with briny, freshly shucked oysters because the soft tannins harmonise with the metallic zinc of these molluscs. The style also matches well with antipasto, crab linguini or grilled salmon. Or chill and sip as the sun goes down.

95 Points - "Medium to pale onion-skin blush in the glass. Nectarine, wood oil and orange rind on the nose. Very slippery across the palate, flows with drive and intensity and finishes very long. It's more about texture than flavour, acids and phenolics are there and working behind the scenes. A contrast to so many rosés yet so easy to enjoy." - Stuart Knox (The Real Review)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
