About

About The Wine

For all of his specialties, Barney Flanders makes very fine Rosé.

This is made from mostly hand-picked Merricks vineyard Pinot Noir, with a splash of Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer.  It's hand sorted, whole bunched pressed, left on skins for about 24 hours before spending 6 months in neutral oak.

It's dry, delicate and beautifully perfumed, perfect for those seeking a classy, complex and savoury modern Rosé.  Gorgeous Rosé.

About Garagiste

Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders.

After leaving Allies Wines in 2003 he embarked on a mission to produce small batch premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay under his own label in his beloved Mornington Peninsula.

Barney loves the sub-regionality to be exploited in Mornington Peninsula, the slight alterations in aspect and soil profile within this small wine producing region provide him with the scaffolding around which he builds his stunning harem of small batch wines.

They are only ever made in small quantities so time is of the essence if you want to explore the world of Garagiste.

Additional Info

From The Producer

After 2019’s no-show, it’s fair to say Barney Flanders has had some fun with the 2020 rosé. The lion’s share of the juice was directly pressed from Merricks Pinot Noir. To this Flanders added a portion of Pinot Gris (fermented on skins for three weeks) and a snippet of Tuerong Gewürz. The blend spent six months in neutral barrique, on lees, before bottling.

The result is probably the most delicious, come-and-get-me textural rosé we have tasted under this label. Expect a wine with a beautiful onion skin colour and a pretty, spicy palate loaded with red fruit, rosewater and aniseed notes, and a crunchy, refreshing close. Delicious.

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).
