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.

2021 Clemens Busch Riesling Trocken

Another outstanding 2019 German Riesling to savour, at an entry-level price.

This organic dry (Trocken) wine is sourced in part from some of Clemens' GG classified vineyards, the 'Grand Crus' if you will.

For such a light delicate wine it packs so much in.. slate, pear, spice, honey, with the promise of more to come over the next few years. A must-buy, as stocks are flying...

2021 Wagner-Stempel Riesling Trocken

German lime-juice refreshment from Daniel Wagner, with a lingering dry finish.

Gutswein is the entry-level ranking within the German VDP voluntary classification system, and is often where the best value wines can be found.

Lovely crunchy drive, like watching Brian Lara play down the ground with a full face of the bat.

2020 Prinz Rheingau Riesling Trocken

If only all 'entry-level' estate wines were of this quality. Prinz is just a great organic/ biodynamic producer from the Rheingau in Germany.

The Rieslings from Rheingau tend to be on the drier side, with lots of depth and power. This has wonderful floral and herbal aromatics and a refreshing chalky mouthfeel but it is concentration and intensity of the fruit core that really impresses.

A succulently-impressive Riesling that could be served as the highlight of any meal...

2020 Dr Burklin-Wolf Riesling Dry

Refreshing Riesling from one of the bargain quality producers in Germany.

The Pfalz region is a touch warmer than the Mosel or Rheingau, and this represents a richer style of dry Riesling, chock-full of stonefruit and mango flavours backed up by the ever-present crunchy spine we find in the variety's spiritual home.

Excellent choice for some non-thinking everyday drinking.

2020 Bianka and Daniel Schmitt Zold

Daniel and Bianka Schmitt must have some sort of magic in their winemaking repertoire, taking the most neutral of neutral grapes; Sylvaner, and crafting it into a wine that is complex and full of character.

Two-weeks on skins, then 9 months in barrel, has turned these grapes into a wild, and uninhibited wine, full or texture, and flavour. Sweet citrus, stone fruits, lovely floral character and spice, all framed by some skinsky texture with a delicate chew.

if Sylvaner is a grape you normally pass over, we get it, it’s not always the most interesting wine on the shelf. But here, at the hands of B&D, this boring grape has morphed into a textural and flavour feast of a wine with so much interesting character.

2018 Loosen Barry Walhalla Riesling

A collaborative effort here between the iconic labels Dr. Loosen of the Mosel and Jim Barry of the Clare Valley.

If the Wolta Wolta is a Germanic-styled Riesling made from Australian fruit, the Walhalla is the other side of that coin.

This is Australian winemaking techniques applied to fruit from the Erdener Treppchen vineyard in the Mosel - that is to say it is made dry, lean, flinty and precise.

It would be the perfect transition wine for anyone who has enjoyed Australian Riesling in the past and is looking to make their first exploration in German Riesling.

It's fine, tight, and will cellar a dream. A cracking release of this collaborative wine.

    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 02 8376 8775 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).
