About the Wine

Doppelgänger is another quirky yet delicious creation from the lovely Yoko and Andries over at Brave New Wine.

After varying degrees of skin contact on each variety through ferment, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Vermentino are aged in a combination of old barrels and ceramic eggs under a thin veil of flor.

There's uber amounts of skinsy texture here. A faint nuttiness and something like kombucha. Served blind, this would be a very difficult wine to put your finger on. The tannins are tight, the acid is mouth watering, the volume of fruit is ample to all the winemaking thrown at it.

It certainly won't be fore everyone, but it is a truly interesting drinking experience.

About Brave New Wine

It is a Brave New World and these are, in every sense, Brave New Wines.

This range is brought to you by husband and wife duo Andries and Yoko Lüscher-Mostert. They are making painfully small amounts of fascinating, experimental and delicious wine from some superb vineyards in Great Southern.

With a vision of acquiring their own vineyard in the future, they are currently content to make wines that truly thrill them. These are natural wines crafted without additions but with bucket-loads of love and skill.

Some of the most intriguing vino in WA and definitely a winery to keep an eye on.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Multi-variety, Multi-vintage skin contact white. Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Vermentino all fermented separately with different times on skins varying from two weeks to 12 months. Complexity built in with barrel ageing, lees contact and some components under flor in ceramic egg and barrel.

Carefully blended together with wine reserved from last year’s blend (kind of Solera system). Its bright, and shiny, yet deep and cerebral, with warm spice notes of clove and star anise, with dried orange peel and pot pourri. Fresh and sexy. Mandarin, orange peel and musk sticks, jasmine flower and rose water. Layered, complex, sexy/slippery and super long.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

It's tart and tangy with a pretty serious zing of acidity. But that's not all folks! There's nuts and a hint of fino, some kombucha on the nose and in the mouth amongst bracing citrus flavours. Long threads of tannin that crunch and chomp through the finish. Be warned, it's a wild ride! - Different Drop Wine Team

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. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
