Description

The Astro Bunny is a playful Pet-Nat by the hands of Tim Wildman, MW.

This is an all sorts blend of Arneis, Nero d'Avola and Fiano, from various vineyards across Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale.

Tim is emphatic that wine should fall into one of two categories: fun or fine. This wine sits firmly in the former category.

Astro Bunny is fun and fizzy, a little funky and positively loaded with personality. It's a spritzy wine that will charm any fan of this hugely popular wine style.

Hazy, lava lamp carrot colour, explosive aromas of peach, tangerine and cut lime. She’s fun! Chill down, shake before opening, beach or bus, 2 people, 10 minutes. – Arneis 43%, Zibibbo 23%, Nero d’Avola 21%, Fiano 13%

90 points - "Time flies, or Tim flies. This is the project of MW and rabble-rouser, pet nat expert, English sparkling wine revivalist and honorary Australian Tim Wildman. It’s ten years since the release of his first Astro Bunny, a 600 bottle run. Now, he’s telling me the wine is, erhem, produced in a bit more volume, indeed, exported to sixteen countries, and doing well. Meanwhile, this iteration is a blend of arneis, nero d’Avola and fiano.

Guava juice! Wow. Could be switched out pretty easily. Strong scents and flavours of that, almost a nectar-like texture but with bright, persistent and prickly fizz. It’s a fruity number, lots of fun, clean and cool and fresh. For me, perhaps a little too much of the party wine vibe, that tropical fruitiness gets a bit much, it’s quite one-dimensional, but hey, but you can see a legion of enthusiasts of fun fizz getting really stuck in. And in that, well done." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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.
