Description

Gewurz without acid is structureless. Flabby overheated wine that while pretty, is a challenge to drink.

However, when combined with a backbone of acid that zips and zings through the wine, it becomes a true joy to drink. Wine in all its hedonistic glory. That is what we have here, full-flavoured Gewurztraminer backed up and shaped with a fist of acidity.

Spicy, with tropical fruit, and fresh citrus crunch, this cool-climate wine from Shadowfax, is a great example of what makes Gewurztraminer the darling of the sommelier set.

A cool summer and mild spring led to a very long growing season. With a La nina pattern set in over Australia it was the coolest vintage in ten years. Crop levels were good, careful canopy thinning was required throughout the season to keep air flow and sun onto the grapes. Grapes ripened very late in the season with full flavour and phenolic ripeness. Fruit was hand picked in small batches in pristine condition.

92 Points - "Chewy, waxy textured white wine that shows some strong and distinct varietal characters; nashi pear, faint honeycomb, salted cashew, green herbs. A delight to drink, quietly complex, a lift of white balsamic tang. Great to see textural input so strongly put on show. Intriguing white wine. Will cellar well too." Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

91 Points - "After a recent trip to Europe, I was craving an invigorating Thai currv the moment I set foot hack in 07. The spicy tangy zip of pitch-perfect Thai food is addictive. And this wine would be a great match. From the cool and hillv region of Macedon, its intoxicating nose of rose petals and fresh herbs leads to a palate of exotic fruits that's big on flavour. There's a lovely purity to the fruit and clever winemaking has drawn out some pithy phenolics that taper the finish, adding dimension. Gabrielle Poy (The Real Review)

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.

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.
