About

About The Wine

The Ü Röck Döts is a wine with a serious cult following.

This is dry grown Gewurztraminer and Riesling with a splash of Pinot Gris fermented together in old wood. A marrying of textural interest and flamboyant aromatics from these varieties with a little residual sugar making this a deliciously wild wine that is very compelling to drink.

It's not your average Riesling blend. It's not your average 'aromatic blend'.

It's its own beast and it seriously rocks to drink.

About La Violetta

Few winemakers bring as much creativity and flair to their label as the mercurial Andrew Hoadley.

With a mischievous, child-like joy, he has set about crafting La Violetta, one of the most fascinating wine ranges in Western Australia, and indeed, the country.

His wines are inspiring, each a creation all of its own.

With a mix of single vineyard, single varietal wines and some exotic blends, these are some of the most thought-provoking wines in the West.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Exuberant sibling to Das Sakrileg, this is a blend of 74% Gewürztraminer, 22% Riesling from and old, dry grown vineyard west of Mount Barker, with a splash (4%) of skin contact Grauburgunder(Pinot Gris). Hand harvested bunches were destemmed and chilled before overnight skin contact, then pressed off to ferment wild in a cool, underground cellar in seasoned oak puncheons. The wine remains unsulphured on lees for 9 months before bottling, unfined and unfiltered. Produced in tiny quantities, this is a selection of the best barrels, blended to achieve texture, balance and aromatic intensity.

Blend : Gewürztraminer (74%), Riesling (22%), Pinot Gris (4%)
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2024

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Slippery, squeaky white of inward concentration yet freshness. Lots of pear and apricot going on, some candied citrus peel things, a bit of creamy, sweet nutty character in there too. While quite rich, it’s not overly heavy or cloying, and, indeed, the core of spritely acidity does wondrous things for freshening the palate, guvna. An utter delight, and a touch fancy, unlike Andrew Hoadley, well, the fancy bit." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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).
