Description

This is a delicious, racy aromatic blend from Domaine Weinbach that has Riesling at its core.

Les Vignes du Precheur—‘the preacher’s vines'- is a single-vineyard wine that was a recent acquisition by the Domaine, and is in conversion to organic and biodynamic certification.

The grape breakdown is 40% Riesling; 30% Auxerrois; 20% Pinot Gris; 5% Muscat; and 5% Sylvaner, all co-fermented in old oak vats and bottled after eight months on lees.

It's a spicy, musky, lingering dry white with heaps of personality, and can be enjoyed immediately.

The richness and mineral variety of the soils, the personality of each grape variety, its suitability for the location, the individuality of each plot or group of plots, the choices and harvest conditions, give rise to a wide range of vintages. Each has its own character, its own colouring, with the same search for purity and elegance combined with richness and balance.

This research makes them great gastronomic wines. The wines of Domaine Weinbach offer endless and exciting resources in their marriage with food

91 Points - "The nose of candied lemon peel and honeycomb leads you into the creamy, medium bodied palate where a discreet touch of tannin gives structure. Quite a complex finish with plenty of bergamot character and modest acidity." - JamesSuckling.com

    An interesting Alsatian blend

    An intriguing wines. Acid and alcohol both stands out on the palate. Quite complex nose and textural palate -- white fruit (ripe), yellow flowers... some phenolic elements.

    Refined Alsatian White

    This was an exquisite wine. It had delicacy but also a presence. Fresh aromatic notes with just the right amount of weight in the palate. That creamy underlay (lees derived?) gave the wine texture and intrigue. For a multi-varietal blend - which all too often can taste like a fruit salad - this wine was precise, neat and very fine. Excellent value.

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.
