About The Wine

Quality Sparkling Rosé like this doesn't come around at this price every day.

In the Altair Sparkling Rosé you can see the love of this wine style from husband and wife winemaking partners, Kate & Hamish Laurie. Kate was trained in Champagne and those skills she obtained during her time there are beautifully on display here.

This is bright, fresh, spicy and complex - a ridiculous bargain if you are on the hunt for classy, elegant Australian Sparkling that won't cost an arm and a leg.

With 95 points from James Halliday, this is brilliant drinking for any day of the week.

Additional Info

From The Producer

WINEMAKING
The fruit is all hand-picked and whole bunch pressed into tank for fermentation. A remaining parcel of Pinot Noir is fermented as red wine in open top fermenters with daily plunging. Fermentation lasts around 12 days and the wines go through malolactic ferment over winter to soften the acids. Blending then takes place, combining the clear base wine with around 4-7% of the red wine to achieve the pale pink colour and fruit lift that is signature of this wine. 

We tirage the wine by hand and store the bottles at 14` for a long consistent second ferment. Each bottle is riddled and hand disgorged on site in our Longwood winery. Small batches are disgorged at a time to allow the remaining bottles to continue ageing on lees as long as possible. The dosage liquor is crafted using a blend of base wines that have been aged for at least 12 months.

VINEYARD
We source fruit from sites located above 550m in the Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley regions of the Adelaide Hills. These sites consistently produce outstanding Pinot and Chardonnay for sparkling wine.

Blend : Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
ABV : 12.50%

Halliday Wine Companion

"A blend of pinot noir and chardonnay grown at Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley, 80% from '17. Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, largely fermented in tank, a small percentage of pinot made as a red wine. Delicious rose, with small red fruits/berries, and a supple mouthfeel. Bargain." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

If your order is placed before 12pm we’ll get it on the truck that day. Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

Strict government health and safety requirements and very high parcel volumes are causing significant backlogs at the main NSW and VIC sorting facilities. Orders are still arriving safe and sound but you may notice slower delivery times and less frequent scanning updates than usual.

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).
