2020 Quiet Mutiny Charlotte's Elusion Riesling

Derwent Valley, Tasmania

Lo-fi textural Tassie Riesling from Young Gun Greer Carland.




About The Wine

Interestingly wild but essentially pure Riesling made by Tasmanian young winemaker Greer Carland, sourced from the Derwent River valley.

A good proportion of the fruit was left on skins for six hours which, combined with some natural yeast ferments, leads to some skinsy, herbal characters and an intense palate feel.

Well worth a walk on the Riesling wild side.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"From the family vineyard in the Derwent Valley, picked 6 and 12 Apr, 50% of the final volume given 6 hours skin contact before pressing and 20% was wild-fermented, the balance with a neutral yeast. It's not clear to me what the aim was." - James Halliday Wine Companion

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).
