Description

This excellent release from Sinapius features fruit from a remarkable Tasmanian vineyard planted by Linda Morice and the late Vaughn Dell in 2013.

Vaughn & Linda were way ahead of the curve to plant Gamay on their 'close-planted' block a decade ago and their foresight is only just now paying off.

It's beautiful, bright and fragrant, a very high-quality early-drinking red with plenty of chalky structure to back up the vibrant red fruits.

The 2019, 2021 and the 2022 vintages all were rated 96 points by the Halliday Wine Companion making it one of the most constantly excellent wines of this variety in the country.

These close-planted vines only yield a very small amount of fruit so it's never available for long.

Estate Grown Gamay sourced from dry grown, high density planted vineyard, planted in 2013 between 7,700 – 11,111 vines per hectare. Gently handpicked to ensure all bunches remain intact, the grapes underwent traditional whole cluster carbonic maceration for 2 weeks, without any addition of sulfur. After pressing, the wine is matured in a 1500 litre foudré and old barriques for 7 months, and bottled without fining and filtration in December 2023.

The wine opens with an intensely perfumed nose, showing wild strawberry and redcurrants with hints of violet and wild fennel. Medium bodied, a savoury palate from the whole-bunch stem elements, juicy red fruits, with fine/chalky tannins. This wine has great length and persistence, with a wonderful fine spice and lively acidity to finish. Enjoy at room temperature or chilled.

Sinapius

Sinapius is a premium boutique Tasmanian winery started by two young, passionate winemakers.

The couple, Vaughn Dell & Linda Morice, purchased the site when they were only 24-years-old and chose to plant their vines in the Burgundian fashion opting for high-density planting and low-yielding crops. Their small labour of love has budded into one of Tasmania's most exciting viticultural projects.

Vaughn passed away tragically in 2020, however, the Sinapius label continues under the guidance of Linda and the help of some loving friends. The Sinapius wines are of extremely high quality, made in small amounts and showcase their unique patch of dirt with transparency, purity and power.

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.
