About The Wine

Few think outside the Barossa box like Dave 'Yetti' Geyer.

He sees potential in those unwanted odd-ball varieties of the region and takes them into uncharted territory. For this wine, it's Chenin Blanc with a wild streak.

This fruit comes from an organic farmed Vine Vale vineyard, with old Chenin Blanc vines yielding tiny amounts of uber-concentrated fruit.  Dave nurses them into the winery, lets them hang out on skins for a day, then presses it off with no sulphur added whatsoever.

Full of juicy, yellow fruits, yet saline and savoury through the finish.  Interest plus plus, and perfect for sipping in the sun.

About Geyer Wine Co.

David Geyer is challenging some of the traditions of the Barossa Valley, giving a second life to some of the neglected sites across the region and playing with varieties that aren’t exactly mainstream but are all universally delicious.

He makes wines as naturally as possible, always striving for drinkability and charisma in some of these unsung hero varieties of the region.

Some of the grapes he grows himself, some come from like-minded growers in the region.

This is the new Barossa. Check it out.

Additional Info

From The Producer

From a small plot found in the Vine Vale subregion of the Barossa. Originally planted in 2010 as larger wineries were playing around with ‘experimental’ varieties. Only 6 E to W rows planted. Soils are typical free, deep draining Vine Vale alluvial sands. Viticulture is organic though not certified.

Hand-harvested early in the day and split into two portions. The first left as whole bunches for carbonic maceration, going through primary and secondary over a 3-week period in sealed tank. Subsequently this portion was foot stomped and pneumatically pressed to old French hogsheads for 6 months. The second portion was destemmed and left on skins for one day before being pressed to old French hogsheads for fermentation, being topped up regularly. Blended and bottled with no fining, filtration or sulphur added.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Skinsy, chewy texture, loads of pleasing saline minerality, lime and lemon (sweeter citrus) tang. It’s fragrant, interesting, textural and dry to finish. It’s mouth-watering and refreshing, thirst-quenching and darn delicious to drink. It’s not overly complex this release, but it is downright delicious." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 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).
