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.

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!

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.

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.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

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.
