About The Wine

A savoury, more vinous expression of the Pinot Gris grape was the idea for Sierra Reed and Jon Ross. That's exactly what they've achieved.

The fruit comes from the Mornington Peninsula, arguably the epicenter for good Pinot Gris in Australia. It was pressed to oak and left alone for seven months before bottling. They wanted to tame Gris' outrageous aromatics and keep a sense of tension and complexity in the wine. They've been very successful.

This is a grown up Pinot Gris, not a casual quaffer but more of a serious, nuanced wine for contemplation.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Savoury nose with flickers of the Mornington’s sea swept skins. Mouthfeel is purposefully opulent and rich, allowing the alcohol to pull the weight across the palate with hints of acidity bouncing through. It’s all about the structure with this wine and taming the obnoxious high toned aromatics that Gris so easily wants to transmit. Bringing some of the bitter grapefruit notes to the finish creating a shape that goes from broad to tapered. It’s exactly what Jon Ross and I wanted to make, it was the vision.

Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, barrel fermented and aged in old oak for 7 months.

Blend : Riesling (100%)
Drink Until : 2025
Bottle Size : 750ml

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).
