About The Wine

'Seven Eves' is a new project from the loveable Somos chaps of McLaren Vale.  The idea being best described by the boys:

"These wines are named after our philosophy when making them, they are designed to be varietal and focused, yet they are also quite juicy, fragrant, and easy to drink. Perfect for any night of the week, hence Seven Eves."

They've kicked off with a pair of delicious Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris, that deliver great bang for buck.  This is the more 'classic' style, with mostly stainless steel fermentation resulting in a fresh-fruited style, with a but of older oak and lees stirring for texture.

Pinot Gris 101.

About Somos

The Somos wines are the product of two enthusiastic young winemakers - one Australian and one Mexican - looking to make interesting and contemporary wines from McLaren Vale.

Benjamin Caldwell and Mauricio Ruiz Cantu are the creative duo behind this exciting project, with the wines exported back to South & Central America as well as sold through just a handful of outlets and venues locally in Australia.The focus is on 'alternative' varieties from sustainably managed vineyards - their Aglianicos being of particular note.

Their unique wines are made with a deft touch, the resulting styles perfumed and balanced, bursting with energy and personality. Just minuscule volumes produced, but great fun to be had across the Somos range.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Region/Vineyard: In Conversion to Organic.  Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills

Winemaking: Striving for a true Gris style, hand-picked at about 12.5 Baume, quickly pressed with very minimal maceration. We drained about 25% of the juice into French barriques, and the rest in stainless steel. Fermented wild on full solids at low temperatures. We lees stirred the portion in oak for 4 months before blending it back to tank.

Style: The wine has ripe pear, nectarines, and lemon notes with caramel and honey on the nose. It has richness and layers of fruit on the palate that works well with bright acidity and cold cream characters. Dry yet textural, it has a lovely balance of density and acidity that offers amazing drinkability.

Blend : Pinot Gris (100%)
ABV : 13.2%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2021
Bottle Size : 750ml

Your average, bog standard pinot gris. Not funky or skinsy.

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 1300 668 385 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).
