About

About The Wine

Hats off to Pooley becoming Tasmania's first certifiably sustainable vineyard. Caring about the earth they farm obviously paying dividends for this top producer.

This is a top flight Gewurztraminer - the terroir of this beautiful estate shines through. The flamboyant floral, musk and Turkish Delight characters well known in the variety are calmed and composed here, set in a frame of pristine minerally acidity.

The all important balance for this variety expertly handled here by winemaker Anna Pooley. This is one of the best examples of this variety you will find from the Apple Isle.

About Pooley

Pooley is one of the leading family-owned wineries in Tasmania, renowned for their exquisite Single Vineyard examples of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Coal River region, less than an hour north of Hobart.

The family vineyard was planted in 1985 by Margaret and Denis Pooley. Today it is in the hands of the third generation of Pooleys, with award-winning winemaker Anna Pooley heading up the cellar and her brother Matt as viticulturalist. They make a killer team and the family business is going from strength to strength.

Anna's wines are pure, refined and eminently cellar-worthy. A class-act producer setting a cracking pace for all of Tasmania to follow.

From The Producer

Flamboyantly floral on the nose with notes of dried rose petal, Turkish delight, confectionary banana, and lychee. Underlying tones of cardamom and white pepper spice on the palate with plenty of texture and a bone dry finish.

Fruit was sourced from 20-year-old vines on the East Coast of Tasmania. The fruit was crushed and pressed to tank. Cold settled. Racked off heavy lees then warmed and inoculated. Fermentation took place over 18 days with 3 months on fine lees in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling.

Well structured

Whilst a bit lacking on the typical Gewurtz scent, it does have a lovely structured palette.

I love this wine!

I bought a 1/2 case from Pooley last year and then ordered another 1/2 case untasted. This is my favorite Tasmanian Gewurtztraminer and believe me I have tried them all. And the price through Different Drop is a steal. Highly recommend for Gewurtz lovers.

elegance in a glass

I have loved the pinots by Pooley for a long time. Their wines are not fussy -- honest, well-crafted, leaving the territory and fruit to do the talking. So I was intrigued about this Gewürztraminer. It is done in a very dry style, with no skin contact, aromatic but not overwhelming. The word that springs to mind with every sip is "elegant." An outstanding drop!

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).
