About The Wine

It's been a whirlwind journey for Dan Graham, the man behind Sigurd.  One barrel in 2012 has lead to many in 2020, the scope of this side project taking on a life of its own. Get on board, the wines are killer.

This is a mash-up of several aromatic varieties: Semillon, Vermentino, Muscat and Chardonnay all get a spot in the lineup for 2020.

With all those big personalities at play, it's amazing how composed and balanced the wine feels.  It's silky and smooth, as you'd expect it's wildly aromatic and just a pleasure to drink.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The 2020 Sigurd White started picking in late January with the picking of Vermentino, part of the Vermentino was then fermented on skins for 14 days before being pressed off and into French oak puncheons (500ltr). The Semillon and Muscat were picked February and were fermented in stainless steel tank separately and were whole bunch pressed as well as some whole bunch fermentation. The Chardonnay was the last fruit to come in and was whole bunch pressed to old French puncheons as well. After pressing the skin fermented whites they were pressed into a 100 yr old oak Foudre (1600L) where it stayed until bottling in November. All wines were left on their lees until late October before being racked off lees and bottled two weeks later with a small addition of Sulphur.

DDS review

Stonefruit and florals, spice and a hint of green camomile tea. It builds thich through the mouth with loads of texture built in but it cleans up nicely through the finish with a zing of grapefruit and orange blossom. Cool wine. Lots going on but easy as to knock back. - Different Drop Wine Team

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).
