2020 Koehler-Ruprecht Kallstadter Kabinett Trocken Riesling

Pfalz, Germany

Cracking, intense Riesling, with a light skinsy structure. A wine for dinner rather than the balcony.

About The Wine

Outstanding value premium Riesling from the Pfalz, from a cult producer renowned for making textured, slightly oxidative wines, with long ageing in oak.

This premium-grade fruit is picked by hand in five stages to attain perfect balance of both ripeness and steely acidity. The ferment is arrested just before the wine goes dry, which gives it a sweet, lime-and-honey-like character.

This long, slow, time to get to bottle is well worth it. This drinks like a dream.

About Koehler-Ruprecht

Koehler-Ruprecht is one of the oldest and most distinguished producers in Pfalz, located in the village of Kallstadt at the very northern tip of the region.

They are renowned for wonderful single site Rieslings from Saumagen vineyard but the entire range is outstanding, with a focus on top quality estate fruit, natural ferments and long lees-aging in large old oak.

Now owned by the Sauvage family, of Burnt Cottage fame, local boy Dominik Sona has returned to Pfalz from winemaking overseas to take the reins.

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 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).
