About The Wine

The Havilah wines are the bistro range from young Ricky Evans at Two Tonne Tasmania.

Purpose built to be enjoyed in his swish Launceston wine bar of the same name. Next time you're in the area, make sure you stop in and say hi to him!

The Pinot Gris is from some friends Relbia and the West Tamar. Ricky descibes it as 'Summer in a bottle'.

A portion of barrel ferment just for a little something extra under the hood - this is crisp, crunchy pears and apples that is begging for a good chill on a hot day.

About Havilah

Havilah is the experimental label of young Tasmanian winemaking superstar, Ricky Evans.

Under his main label, Two Tonne Tasmania, Ricky showcases the beauty of the Tamar Valley through the lens of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling.

Havilah gives him the chance to spread his wings and test the waters with different vineyards and wine styles. The wines are made to be interesting, approachable and great value. They offer a different side of this talented young winemaker.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Ricky says he was looking for that pure and fruit-driven Tasmanian style, with added texture from barrel ferment and lees contact. The fruit is from two vineyards, the majority from Relbia and the balance from West Tamar. Both parcels were picked on the same day, whole-bunch pressed, then settled and racked into seasoned oak and one small tank ferment. After fermenting to dryness it was left on gross lees, with no stirring for three months.

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).
