Description

The Buttons have sourced this Riesling from an exciting site at 600m at the top of Piccadilly Valley. The vineyard belongs to Dave Freschi and is planted with several unique clones all planted at a high density of 10,000 vines per hectare. It's a particularly late ripening site and the resulting fruit is deliciously ripe and complex.

In the winery the wine was fermented in old barrels and stainless steel following a little pre-ferment time on skins. This mix adds a lovely creaminess to the texture and a roundness that is rare in such a linear variety. It's extremely appealing and coupled with pithy lime and zingy lemon curd makes it hard to put the glass down.

This small parcel of fruit was the last of the whites to come into the winery. It was destemmed into 1 tonne flowerpots and macerated pre-fermentation for 4 days. Fermentation took place in a combination of seasoned barriques and stainless steel. The wine was racked off gross lees and elevage was in 100% stainless steel for 6 months.

A very limited and exclusive release with only 600 bottles produced.

93 Points - "Has scents of lemon-ginger tea, sea spray, almonds, really pretty and suggesting some richness and savouriness. The palate delivers. Soft, almond and saline minerality overlaid on rich citrus and green apple fruit characters with these pleasing, hazy texture in tow. Layered, exciting, moreish and this sense of nourishment. Lovely wine." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Customer Reviews

Commune of Buttons

Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home some years ago to help save their family vineyard nestled in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills, planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay 20 years ago by their mother.

They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic farming, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking.

The wines are made naturally with only minimal sulphur additions and slow, gentle ferments. Jasper's winemaking has taken them to the front of the pack in the lo-fi Australian wine scene. With each release, the wines are more refined and detailed. They are wonderfully pure, unadulterated and as loveable as the family who makes them.

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.
