Description

A preservative free Rose made from Portuguese varietals, from two organically run sites in California. Evan Lewandowski seems to have a preference for lesser seen grape varieties - here, his Rose is a blend of Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), Souzao and Touriga Nacional.

Another wonderful wine from this very switched on and intuitive young producer. A purpose built rose, the Tinta Roriz was direct-pressed into a mix of tank and old oak, while the Souzao and Touriga were foot-crushed and allowed just a 2 hour maceration.

The wine then spent 5 months post ferment on its full lees and underwent malolactic fermentation, softening it out and adding texture.

Absolutely no additions made. Bursts of blood orange, peach and rose petal, silky texture, very light on its feet. This is seriously pretty wine.

Matthew Rorick farms one of the most compelling sites in all of California, Rorick Heritage Vineyard in Calaveras. High altitude, super unique soils and steep slopes produce extremely particular fruit. Tinta Roriz (aka, Tempranillo) from RHV is picked and direct pressed to form the delicate, spicy, snappy strawberry component for this wine.

Fox Hill Vineyard is planted ALMOST entirely to Italian varieties. The Portuguese block is the exception. Souzão and Touriga Nacional are both primarily relegated to the production of fortified wine, both here and back home in Portugal. But with these two meaty, herbal, tannic, intensely colored varieties I have found such intriguing success in bringing to life a more savory, earthy and structured version of pink wine. It's not just for porch pounding or deck drinking (although, feel free to continue to do so).

94 Points - "Tinta roriz, souzao, touriga nacional in a rose blend here. Evan Lewandowski’s project here, with Ruth ‘a figurehead’ of sorts, albeit fictional. Some outstanding wines out of this wine producer and Evan a bloody ripping fella from my chance meetings. Of the avant garde sect of California. A mix of Fox Hill Vineyard and the Rorick Heritage Vineyard.

Lovely stuff here. A pretty melange of watermelon juice, cranberry drink, juniper, dried forest berries and a general sense of sparkly, shiny, bright tangy pizzazz. Lighter expression but some beauty in tension, drawn long, finishes dry and lightly savoury. So pretty, so delicious, that wonderful zone of light red or rose being juggled. Addictive." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
