About This Wine

What a cool story here. Most people know winemaker Joe Holyman of Stoney Rise, and here we have the first ever wine from his son Oscar who was only 16 when he made this.

For many of us, the scars of COVID-induced home-schooling will live with us forever. Well, is seems during this period Oscars mom Lou became, miss, and this wine is an ode to her teaching cameo ‘Yes Miss’.

Lovely Pinot here, lots of red fruit, a nice stony mineral edge to it, and a lovely dried herbal component. Pretty fantastic wine here from Oscar, seems the grape hasn’t fallen far from the vine.

About Stoney Rise

Stoney Rise is a small winery in Tasmania's Tamar Valley that has a huge reputation.

Winemaker Joe Holyman and his wife Lou purchased the property in 2004, a picturesque site planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay planted in 1986.

Since then, they have developed a keen following, producing some of the most stunning Chardonnay and Pinot Noir on the Apple Isle. Interestingly, they also have a little Gruner Veltliner and Trousseau in the ground adding a little colour to their range.

These wines fly off the shelves. And no wonder, they are right at the top of the pile in Tasmania at the moment.

The Wine Front

"Good perfume, red cherry and raspberry, a little spice and clay-like earthiness. Medium-bodied, red fruit, a smattering of dried herb, lovely fine graphite feel to tannin, kind of juicy, but also shows some restraint. Finish is lively and firm, with a subtle twist of bergamot. Really good drinking. Oscar is on top of things here." - Gary Walsh (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 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).
