About
A very hard grape to get right is Gewürztraminer, though I’d say they’ve done a fine job of it here... Bang on.

About The Wine

The Gewurztraminer from the Kerri Greens collective is a restrained, elegant rendition of the variety.

Whilst all the intoxicating perfume of the variety is retained, this is tucked in tight. With no malo and just a tiny bit of residual sugar, the natural acidity keeps the wine fresh and light on its feet.

Where many examples of Gewurztraminer can be overblown, this is a nice easy drinking version. You'll make short work of a bottle of this, easily... but get it quick, only a very small batch made.

About Kerri Greens

Kerri Greens is a lo-fi Mornington Peninsula outfit here born from a spin off of the iconic Quealy family label.

Tom McCarthy is the son of Kevin and Kathleen, raised in the family business, he knows Mornington Peninsula vineyards like the back of his hand. For the Kerri Greens label, he and Quealy vineyard manager Lucas Blanck and their partners Sarah Saxton and Alyce Blanck, have teamed up to start a small label exploring some of these sites.

Great wines emerging here - sensitively farmed, hand crafted - lovely modern expressions of the Mornington.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Limited Availability, aka very small batch.

Left on skins for a few hours – get that flavour – before being pressed on an extended press cycle, hard pressings left separate. Juice slightly chilled and mixed before being carefully racked to barrel, minimal solids.

Wild yeast fermentation began some days later, there was no addition of sulphur before fermentation. Fermented in 2x old French puncheon and 1x barriques before being consolidated for maturation. Again, ferment was a long one with sulphur not added until early summer. Minimal batonage. After 11 months in barrel on ferment lees the wine was carefully racked for the first time before being left to settle in tank for a further 4 weeks.

Blend : Gewurztraminer (100%)
ABV : 12.5%

The Wine Front

"A very hard grape to get right is Gewürztraminer, though I’d say they’ve done a fine job of it here. Rosewater, lychee, ginger, musk, fresh apricot. It’s fresh, a little nutty, almost a sake-like character, juicy and slightly flinty, perfume and again the lychee, but with some citrus acidity and flavour, and a long gently slippery umami-laced finish. Bang on." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Such a contrast to the tighter rendition in 2020, yet this is no less fabulous. It’s just richer, fleshier and riper, but not heavy. Lychees and musk, poached quinces topped with cinnamon and drizzled with rosewater syrup. Tannins add a slippery, textural coating and grip across the full-bodied palate." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
