About

About The Wine

This is the estate's 'Ortswein', or 'village wine', which is the Kiedricher part of the name, Kiedrich being the historic village location of winery and vineyards. And when we say historic... founded in 907 AD.

Linear, concentrated dry Riesling, with ringing, integrated acidity. More on the stonefruit spectrum with nectarine, peach flavours among the citrus cut. Excellent ageing prospect.

Fruit is from the younger parts of their three classified sites, and some first-pick old vine material. One third of the cuvee was raised in large Stockinger wooden casks.

About Robert Weil

Weingut Robert Weil is one of Germany's, and the world's greatest white wine producers, focusing on just one grape variety - Riesling.

The estate was founded in 1867 by Dr Robert Weil in the beautiful village of Kiedrich, on the north side of the Rhine River, in the historic Rheingau region. Today, the estate is run by the fourth generation Wilhelm Weil, who meticulously oversees 90 hectares of Riesling, and wine releases across all sweetness formats.

Their greatest sites can be found in the foothills of Taunus mountains, the three famous vineyard sites of Kiedricher Turmberg, Kiedricher Klosterberg and Kiedricher Grafenberg.

These are epic wines, particularly the GG Grafenberg, and recent vintages are some of the best ever.

Additional Info

From The Importer

The fruit here comes exclusively from the top, classified sites of Klosterberg, Turmberg and Gräfenberg. It's an assemblage of “younger” vine material (relatively speaking—the average age of the vines is 30 years) as well as first picked parcels from these sites. The style is archetypal Rheingau and Kiedrich in particular; a harmonious alliance between ripe citrus and lush white stone fruit, with deep-rooted minerality and a framework of ripe acidity.

"A very classic dry Rheingau riesling with plenty of mineral depth, packed in a rather sleek body. Delicate white-fruit aromas with some yellow-peach and floral notes. Long and precise, dry finish, the freshness of which pulls you back for more." - 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).
