Description

Here's an interesting and versatile white blend from young South African winemaker Remi Guise, who has made his home in Margaret River.

Remi has taken four of the original white varieties to be planted in the region and combined them into a fresh and decidedly savoury wine of gentle complexity and easy drinkability.

T

he blend of Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay and Muscat is an unusual one, for sure, but all the elements of each variety play off each other seamlessly under Remi's handling.

The Absolution range of wines started as a homage to the country of my birth, but ended up becoming and symbolising the process of my Australianisation. Though I was born in South Africa, I realised that I was an Australian winemaker, and these are utterly Australian wines, however uncommon they may be. Viva Australis. - Remi Giuse

88 Points - "Green herbs doused in salt water. That’s the scent. Mintiness? Underripe? Hmm. Freshening, perhaps. Smelling salts. Zesty flavours. Green herb and salt water again to taste, green apple, just ripe though, not ripe pineapple flavours too, and an almost watery character overall saved by fringes of talc-like pucker. Ok summery drink. - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    2018 Tripe Iscariot Danse Macabre White Blend

    Great flexible blend that has enough interest by itself or when paired with a variety of food. Good drinking over 2 days.

    Could be better

    TripeIscariot Absolution Danse Macabre 2017. Good food-friendly texture. Considering this is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay and Muscat there should be a pronounced bouquet but it was mute. It's dull. If the winemaker wants to bore us let him use Trebbiano and at half the price. This product is uncompetitive and forgettable. Also the label is incoherent. What does "Absolution Danse Macabre" tell us?

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.
