About

About The Wine

Markus Molitor is obsessed with his vines.

He farms a rich tapestry of vineyards from Brauneberg to Traben-Trarbach and along the River Saar. The labour it takes to farm these impossibly steep slopes is a year-round job.

He produces almost exclusively Riesling (with a little Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir) and his Rieslings are sensational.

The Haus Klosterberg is a wine named for the home estate. It's a piercing, dry, focused Riesling from 60+ year old vines.

The fruit is explosive, the acidity is bracing. It's a delicious glass of Riesling to either drink now or cellar.

About Markus Molitor

Markus Molitor took over his father's winery in the mid-1980s, when in its eighth generation of family ownership.

He approaches winemaking with meticulosity, endeavouring to make wines typical of the Mosel region that are reminiscent of the "golden times" of Mosel Riesling.

He allows the location and environment to reflect within the wine, creating individual and expressive wines. His strict and careful craftsmanship creates wines of the highest qualities, and some of the most beautiful from the region.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Clear, cool, fine and "typical Riesling" on the nose. Surprisingly dense and aromatic on the palate. An animating Riesling, which clearly reveals its mineral finesse only in the aftertaste.

The grapes were harvested, gently ground and briefly macerated on the aromatic and mineral-rich berry skins. The must was then fermented spontaneously, slowly and coolly, so that the multi-layered, fruity aroma of the wine could fully express itself. A gentle expansion in stainless steel tanks and partly in large wooden barrels, with long storage on the fine lees, followed after fermentation.

"A very authentic dry Mosel riesling that’s light and crisp, but has plenty of ripe-apple, lemon and white-peach fruit. Not a jot loud, rather extremely well mannered. Good length with pronounced slate character and a touch of herbal freshness." - JamesSuckling.com

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).
