Description

Lethbridge's main man, Ray Nadeson, takes his Pinot Gris very seriously. Indeed, it would be hard to find a more 'worked' or 'crafted' Pinot Gris in this country.

His hand-picked fruit is meticulously basket pressed as whole bunches away from oxygen before being fermented with indigenous yeast in French oak barrels. It then sees extended time on lees in old barrels before being bottled without filtration.

The texture and phenolics here, abound. If you enjoy a more voluptuous and weighty style of Pinot Gris, then this is the wine for you, as Lethbridge exemplifies the style better than almost anyone. Enjoy!

Made in a complex, Alsatian style. Light salmon colour with flavours of red apple skin, earthy citrus, and ginger spice. Refreshing acidity is balanced with a slight pucker giving the wine texture to frame the fruit.

This wine is made from handpicked Pinot Gris fruit. After being left on skins for between 6-8 hours, the fruit was then whole bunch pressed with careful oxidative juice handling. Juice was then transferred to a mixture of stainless steel tanks and 1200lt & 2500lt French foudre without prior clarification, where fermentation by indigenous yeast took place on full solids. The wine was settled and matured in our foudre on gross lees prior to blending and bottling.

94 Points - "Brown pear and skin, strawberry, musk and spice. This is fresh, with dribble-down-the-chin juicy pear, a dusting of pepper and spice, frisky acid cut, lovely fine chalky texture, succulence with energy, a little tangerine peel bitterness and tang, and a long and dusty finish of freshness and excellent length. Mushroom earthy complexity. Took me about 35 seconds to write the review, and form an opinion. It’s excellent. Bang on. Bravo." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

95 Points - "Has the salmon-pink colour of a rosé – and as much flavour as many. Views on the desirability (or not) of the pink colour are split, with no likelihood of being resolved any time soon. The bouquet is redolent of spice, white pepper and wild strawberries. The palate a mirror image. It's not classic, but as a left-field wine, it is pretty good. From this crusty old barnacle, that's high praise." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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.

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.
