Description

The Wild Duck Creek White Duck is a serious white wine made by a winery that specialises in reds, and you can see the Wild Duck Creek Estate DNA right away.

There's a lovely confluence of fruit characters from the different varieties – stone fruits, waxiness, citrus, apple, almond, apricot – with a superb mouthfeel that feels like velvet. The acidity keeps everything fresh and bright, and the flavours on the palate are intense and lively.

It's full bodied and rich and one of those wines that you can sniff and sip for ages or enjoy with a meal as it enhances the taste of your food.

A textural aromatic white wine full of flavour and life. Made through the blending of Roussanne and Viognier, White Duck is full of texture and vibrancy. Fermented in 500L French oak barrels, it shows a lovely fusion of typical varietal characters. The Roussanne providing earthiness, roundness and fresh natural acidity, and the Viognier filling that palate with stone fruits and texture.

95 Points - "A textural feast. A really serious white wine. Slick, concentrated and rich but with cut of acidity and a mealy, nutty savouriness lending additional complexity and interest. There's waxy lemon notes, ripe apple, halva, nougat, faint honeycomb and lots of refreshing green apple character here. Flavours linger forever, almost sticky on the palate but acidity does the trick of refreshment too. Perfume is strong. It sits in the glass with authority and interest and has you hounding at your bottle for more. Reminds me of those great, Australian white blends you drink now and in twenty years. Fancy. Superb stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Fascinating wine to drink

    Really interesting wine to drink. The blend of white varietals makes for a really complex and textural wine. There is stone fruit, aromatics, earthiness, and acidity with a very generous mouthfeel and length.

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.
