About

About The Wine

Frank Van der Loo first became interested in Mondeuse back in 2002, during a trip to France.

He sourced some cuttings when he got back to Australia, planted them in gardens here and there for a while, until in 2010 when he decided to plant one and a half rows on the Mount Majura vineyard. It's taken off since then.

As a variety, it's closely related to Shiraz but this has a feel all of its own. Perfumed yet earthy, crackling with spice and energy, this is a fascinating wine.

About Mount Majura

Mount Majura is one of the most exciting producers in Canberra.

They are quickly gaining fame for producing top class Rieslings and alternative varieties with sensational value across the range.

Winemaker Frank van der Loo's obsessive focus on the terroir and his attempts to find the perfect variety for each patch of dirt under Mount Majura's ownership are resulting in unique and spectacular wines for the region.

Additional Info

From The Producer

With the climate becoming warmer and drier, Mondeuse for us is filling the space left by Pinot Noir.

We prefer to pronounce it as the Savoyards do, rhyming with furs. Mondeuse (noire) is the progeny of mondeuse blanche and the obscure variety tressot noir, just as shiraz is the progeny of mondeuse blanche and the obscure dureza, so that mondeuse and shiraz are half-siblings.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Mondeuse is a French variety that I find so appealing and this wine too, with 2021 representing the 6th vintage. Firstly, it's refreshing and lively with a core of tangy, juicy, tart raspberries and black cherries with a sprinkle of pepper, fresh herbs and violets. Yet it has a strong savoury element of iodine, prosciutto and meaty reduction, finishing with fine tannins and raspberry-sorbet acidity." - 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 1300 668 385 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).
