About

About the Wine

Despite having almost as much wine history as the Hunter, Mudgee too often flies under the radar. But with Australian Riesling roots going back to 1838, the Stein family has proven talent with crafting some sensational expressions of this great grape.

This special ‘White’ label bottling is like an unexpected gift amongst tricky times. With 2019’s drought and bushfires, and fewer 2020 cellar door visits, it takes top fruit normally destined for the Stein’s best bottlings.

Dry, textured and taut with lime zest and orange, don’t miss this historic gem.

About Robert Stein

The Stein family has a long history with Riesling, dating back to 1838 and among the first to successfully plant the variety in Australia. Nowadays it is the family flagship variety, with three Riesling styles being made most years.

The Dry, Half Dry and Reserve Rieslings are made from fruit off our vineyard which was planted in 1976, along with fruit sourced from numerous vineyards in Mudgee, including the Historic Miramar vineyard.

This family tradition of winemaking has since been continued by Robert and Lorna’s grandson, Jacob Stein, returning to the family business in 2009 as chief winemaker.

Jacob explains, “Mudgee has excellent attributes for growing grapes. The region has a continental climate with warm days and cool nights, combined with excellent soil profiles are some of the attributes that help Mudgee produce great wines with a distinct regional character”

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).
