About the Wine

From the PG Queen comes this classically rich, honeysuckley wine with just 2 grams of residual sugar.

Whole-bunch pressing for texture along with 20% French oak maturation and regular lees stirring, has led to a generous, fulfilling wine.

Tussie Mussie is a north-facing vineyard in Merrick North, planted to Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, rich in red, ferrous soils. This old, iron-rich soil gives a mineral feel that enlivens the wine.

This is a luscious offering of Pinot Gris from Quealy, and it's the perfect wine to enjoy with friends and family while you kick back this summer.

About Quealy

Kathleen Quealy is the winemaking soul of Mornington Peninsula, and was the first person to plant Pinot Gris in Australia. Kathleen and her husband Kevin McCarthy launched T'Gallant winery in the 90s, pioneering this famous variety. Quealy Vineyards is based in Merricks North, with the winery and cellar door in the centre of the viticultural action.

Kathleen has continued to innovate - along with PG, Quealy is renowned for super-interesting expressions of Muscat and Fruilano, experimenting with different degrees of skin-contact and fermentation styles. A true industry legend!

Additional Info

From The Producer

Pinot Gris like Pinot Noir are so distinguished by their site. Tussie Mussie Vineyard, formerly a flower farm, grows in the choccy red, iron rich soil of Merricks North.

It’s a generous wine with a luscious stone fruit palate; honey, heavy bottomed pears, creamy classic Pinot Gris. The mud brick homestead and original rambling house gardens are sensitively maintained as a boutique retreat.

The Wine Front

"Honey and herbs, eucalyptus candy. Milky texture with cherry blossoms, cinnamon, fudge, pears and ginger. It’s viscous with a spicy frame and chewy candied citrus skins. It may seem overly sweet and full-bodied but it has a great core of firm acidity to balance it all. I’m loving the composition of flavours and how they vibrate on the palate. All the elements are dead on and fulfilling. A ravishing Gris." - Kasia Sobiesiak (The Wine Front)

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).
