About The Pack

It is almost unarguable that the finest Rieslings on the planet are produced in Germany, hailing from famous regions such as Mosel, Pfalz and the Rheingau.

The unique combination of soils and climate that converge in these regions create a rare combination flavour intensity, searing acidity and glorious, complex textures that you just can't find anywhere else on earth.

This amazing pack gives you a taste of some brilliant producers without breaking the bank. In German Riesling terms, these sit at the drier end of the Riesling spectrum but to an Australian palate, you may detect a hint of sweetness in some of these wines.

Go with it, these wines are all about delicacy and balance, and the touch of sweetness is part of the delicious ride.

2020 Von Buhl Riesling Trocken

Awesome dry Riesling from the wonderful organic estate of Reichsrat Von Buhl. Some warmer vintage tropical fruit and citrus notes, a seamless long palate feel, and a rocky, precise finish.

Difficult to believe this is their entry-level wine, with fruit sourced from their vineyards around the local villages in this beautiful part of the Pfalz region.

Mostly fermented in tank with some use of large oak casks, with an unusual six months on lees. Very low sulphur usage too.

2020 Gunderloch Fritz's Riesling

Gunderloch is one of Rheinhessen's top producers.

Brought to prominence by the late, great Fritz Hasselbach, Fritz's legacy today is carried on by his thoughtful and incisive son, Johannes.

This wine is the creation of Johannes and was named for his late father. It's insane value in the context of German Riesling.

It's juicy, succulent, and gives that combination of sweet, jellied lime and crunchy acid that only the Germans can do.

If you want a no-brainer Riesling that you can rip the top off any night of the week, Fritz's Riesling is near impossible to go past.

2020 Koehler-Ruprecht Kallstadter Kabinett Trocken Riesling

Outstanding value premium Riesling from the Pfalz, from a cult producer renowned for making textured, slightly oxidative wines, with long ageing in oak.

This premium-grade fruit is picked by hand in five stages to attain perfect balance of both ripeness and steely acidity. The ferment is arrested just before the wine goes dry, which gives it a sweet, lime-and-honey-like character.

This long, slow, time to get to bottle is well worth it. This drinks like a dream.

2020 Dr Loosen Dr L Dry Riesling

This must surely be one of the true bargain Rieslings of the Mosel.

Since taking control of his family's 200+-year-old winery in 1988, Ernst Loosen has taken Dr. Loosen to new heights.  His commitment to quality has seen him revolutionise the way that Dr. Loosen approached their great vineyard holdings on the slopes and valleys of the Mosel. He insisted on lower yields, farming with organic sprays rather than chemicals, and a gentler approach in the winery. It was an approach that was ahead of its time and has seen Dr. Loosen rise to be one of the benchmark producers of this famous region.

This is a crisp, clean, juicy and refreshing Riesling. A fruit-driven wine, with a juicy mid-palate and a crisp, dry finish.

2020 Prinz Jungfer Kabinett

There's an extensive history of grape growing in Rheingau, with deep ties to the region's monastic orders . This vineyard, Jungfer, was so named because the monks of the middle-ages attributed the quality of fruit to the blessings of the Virgin Mary.

 Regardless of a godly or atheistic world view, what cannot be disputed is that this vineyard produced some of, if not the most exquisite fruit from the Prinz holdings. Predominantly quartz composed soils absorb the intense daylight sunshine, releasing the energy to the vines during the cool of the night.

What a truly drinkable wine! Seductive aromas, of exotic tropical fruit with deep and entrancing perfume. A super smooth palate of ripe stone fruit drizzled with honey, all counterbalanced by that fine Rheingau acidity and minerality.

2020 Eva Fricke Rheingau Riesling Trocken

Eva Fricke's regional blend dry (trocken) Riesling is another banging, exhilarating wine.

Wonderfully precise and cleansing, with flavours of lemon oil, garden flowers and a mineral flinty edge. There's great concentration and density to the fruit, which walks the sugar/ acidity tightrope with cocky balance.

An uplifting wine for the palate.

Wunderbar!

A great introduction to dry German rieslings. While the wines may not have been overly complex, they all came with a distinct sense of place. They spoke with a strong Germanic accent. Just like me!

Delicious and crisp

It’s the dry season in the Top End - warm days and cool nights. These Rieslings perfectly match a light lunch sitting on our back veranda. Crisp and refreshing! They’re robust and flavoursome enough to carry through to the afternoon with a cheese platter too. Our staple Rieslings are from the Clare Valley but these are a very welcome change.

German Riesling Masterclass Pack

my wife and I love Riesling but are inexperienced about German Riesling , although we were introduced to it when in Alsace . This Pack was quite outstanding and we managed to enjoy most of it over Easter . The accompanying tasting notes were really helpful . Every riesling provided was delicious and matched up to the tasting note/ review. I am hoping the Pack is still available as I intend to order more . cheers

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).
