Description

This is Dominique’s NV Sparkling Rose. A joyous wine made in a style reminiscent of the wines of his beloved homeland.

A three way blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier, this wine was once named Best Australian Sparkling Rosé at the inaugural Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships in London and has received many great reviews from the likes of James Halliday and Wine Front’s Campbell Mattinson.

This a serious European style bubbly with a lofty pedigree and a more than humble price tag. Undoubtedly one of the best buys for this style in the country.

95 points & Top 100 Wines of 2023
"It has focus and intensity, bright fruit and terrific length. Arguably the best value of the Australian contingent."
- James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

The grapes for this traditional-method sparkling came from two elevated vineyards (325m) in the Upper Yarra. Both sites have benefited from very good growing conditions over recent vintages, with abundant warm days, cool nights and very little rain. This has allowed the fruit to ripen gradually with excellent flavour development and balanced sugars and acids.

The grapes were handpicked, gently pressed and fermented before going through secondary fermentation in bottle. The wine was then aged for two years in our cool, temperature-controlled cellars, then disgorged and given a light dosage prior to release.

95 points & Top 100 Wines of 2023 - "Has a straw-pink hue with good mousse, 60/40% pinot noir chardonnay, 90% from 2020, 10% reserve wines dating to 2012. It spent 24 months on yeast lees, with a light dosage of 5g/l. It has focus and intensity, bright fruit and terrific length. Arguably the best value of the Australian contingent." - James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

    Pleasant bubble

    Nice drink a little complexity on the palette, over all a nice light fizz

    Elegant dry sparkling

    This Brut Rosè is an elegant, complex sparkling with a very dry finish. However, I found the high acidity levels dominated and overrode the strawberry flavours a little too much for my tastebuds.

    Lip-smackingly good!

    A traditional method blend, this is a delicious Aussie take on the French style. Perfectly pale pink in colour that smells as though you are walking through a strawberry farm. It tastes of red berries dancing like poised ballerinas. Elegant and refined, with a balanced dry finish. Lip-smackingly good.

    A superb drop that I'd put up there in the top 10 pink traditional method sparkling wines in Australia - right up there with Deviation Road's Altair Brut Rose. So good!!

    An excellent sparkling

    Dominique Portet Brut Rose is a delightful sparkling rose very much in keeping with the French style. I discovered it whilst on holidays in Kingscliff at a little a Greek Taverna. It is pale in colour, light & dry and great to drink on its own, with an aperitif or a meal. The price is very reasonable for such an excellent wine, so you can drink it at home on your own or take it to a gathering where it always becomes a talking point. I introduced the wine to two friends a few weeks ago, and they have since ordered some for themselves.

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.
