Description

After the smoke-affected vintage of 2020 we are back to a cracking Canberra Riesling from the guys at Mount Majura.

It's all white flowers and orchard blossom and crunchy citrus - there's great acidity thanks to the lovely cool season. Fermentation is stopped with about 7.4g of residual sugar, beautifully balancing the flowing acidity.

Riesling may be what Canberra does best, certainly in value terms.

Our original planting of Riesling in the Pines block, the coolest, most south-easterly aspect of our site, has now been supplemented with Riesling grafted onto vines of similar age in the North block, a little steeper and more east-facing. After nineteen vintages, we recognize typical characters that our site produces: white blossom aromatics and citrus characters leaning more towards lemon peel and grapefruit, and often a hint of aniseed.

Region: Canberra Wine Region, NSW

92 Points - "Pale, water-white colour, the aromas are green-herbs, nettles and stalky scents, the palate very restrained and pared-back, delicate, lean, intense but seems a bit under-fruited. The acidity is high but not strident or unbalanced. It's balanced, the finish dry and smooth. A little age will bring more out of this." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

93 Points - "Lime, aniseed and musk. Distinctive riesling and a very good one. Heightened aromatics lead to an intense, pretty, talc-like palate, flush with citrus and apple, pebbly even. I personally would cellar this but it sure is mouth-watering now." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

    Great example of Canberra District Riesling

    This is a great example of Canberra District Riesling, up there with the best (e.g. Clonakilla, Ravensworth) in the region. This is a dry, minerally style with great persistence. Great value for money.

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.
