Description

This a great value Riesling from a family-owned operation on the Limestone Coast.

It's been one of the great buys of Australian Riesling for a few years now, ever since the 2017 edition was announced as James Halliday's lowest ever priced 98 point Riesling. Subsequent vintages have not disappointed.

It's razor sharp and piercing in style, the framework of incredible acidity rocketing along a bed of zingy citrus fruit, and needle-like in its thrust.

It's a delicious, dry and crunchy Riesling, and once again, it's great value of money.

"Both elegant and intense... while there is ample fruit intensity here, in riesling terms, it remains all about the finish, which is mouth-wateringly long."
- 94 pts, Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Ellis family vineyards lie in the Mount Gambier GI, located in the Kongorong area southwest of Mount Gambier. The proximity to the Southern Ocean provides the coolest maritime climate of mainland Australia, this cool climate extends the ripening of fruit throughout Autumn, ideal for accumulation of flavour and optimum ripening. The vineyards are planted in fractured Limestone, this flinty surface contributes to the mineral elements and the hint of gun smoke character in the wine.

94 points - "Both elegant and intense. Lime jelly and lemon sorbet characters meet slate and grapefruit pulp. It feels measured and long, and while there is ample fruit intensity here, in riesling terms, it remains all about the finish, which is mouth-wateringly long." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

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.
