About The Pack

A collection of sensational Rieslings from around the country - all made by leading boutique producers and all totally delicious!

In this pack you can see why Riesling is considered by many as the King of white grapes. You'll find six deliciously racy wines, filled with intrigue, quality and finesse.

It's great value for any Riesling lover, or just any lover of beautifully made, lip smacking whites.

2021 Rieslingfreak No. 11 Mosaik Eden Valley Riesling

John Hughes is all about showcasing his love for Riesling, and he's passionate about showing off the diversity of the variety. This wine, his No. 11 Mosaik Riesling, is absolutely a wine to behold.

John got a little bit creative and wild with this expression - taking fruit from the Eden Valley, then ageing the wine in seasoned French oak for about a year. The result is magnificent - expect the typical Eden Valley Riesling flavours, like delicate florals, a lip smacking line of acidity, zesty citrus and finishing refreshingly crisp and racy. But the time spent in oak has given it an extra layer of complexity and the addition of a beautiful, mouth-filling, silky texture.

Overdelivering in the value for money department, this is an outrageously delicious and complex wine. Riesling lovers, you can't miss this.

2021 Dr Edge Tasmania Riesling

The formidable powers of Riesling from all corners of Tasmania are put to good and fascinating use here. And, of course, it just wouldn't be a Dr. Edge wine without a little funk... And funk, it has...

It's an equal blend of Pete Dredge's North, South and East Rieslings, bottled unfiltered with some residual sugar.

A whopping nine months on lees and a little lazy time in some old barrels has put some weight on the skeletal Tassie Riesling frame. Yes, there are all the classic steel and citrus notes, but there's an extra layer of savouriness in this wine takes it to a transcendently weird level.

As always with the wines of the good Doctor, there aren't many bottles around. Grab one while you can.

2022 Adelina Watervale Riesling

There are a pigeon-pair of Rieslings from the Clare Valley made by Col & Jen at Adelina.

The Watervale Riesling is usually a touch sweeter than the Polish Hill River but in recent vintages it has been fermented through to almost dryness. It is showing a little more bright and vivacious in its youth (it is normally more closed than the PHR) with pristine citrus and slate characters.

Balanced on a knife edge, this is a whip-smart Riesling release from the Adelina duo. Year after year, one of our favourite, great-value Riesling producers.

2022 Swinney Frankland River Riesling

Frankland River is one of the country's best regions for growing Riesling and few know how to grow it as well as Lee Haselgrove.

Each bunch for this wine was hand picked to ensure only the most pristine fruit made it to the winery. Overripe, over exposed bunches were left behind, a wine of exceptional purity and length of flavour has emerged.

Nothing fancy in the winemaking from Rob Mann, just whole bunch pressed to tank, fermented clean and dry and allowed rest only lees for a few months before bottling.

It's razor sharp, has a piercing length, and will live for many years in the cellar.

2021 Lyons Will Riesling

The Lyons Will Riesling is a opulent example of the variety built around luscious mouthfeel as opposed to the sheer racy acidity that characterises so many younger Australian Rieslings.

The long, cool growing season in the Macedon Ranges allows the intensity of flavour to develop in the fruit before over-ripe sugars become an issue for Ollie and Renata. The benefit of these marginal climates clearly show in this unique interpretation of the variety.

This is raised in old barrels adding another level of depth and textural intrigue to the finished. The fine, mineral-charged acidity still rings clear, but it's complimented by sheets of honeyed flavour and a fine powdery grip.

A delicious, decadent Riesling on offer here from one of the Macedon's most exciting operations.

2022 Ravensworth Regional Riesling

Those that have ever tasted the exquisite wines from the Clonakilla stable should know that most of them have been touched by the hands of Ravensworth owner/winemaker/butcher/purveyor of smoked meats, Bryan Martin.

The Ravensworth project is a chance for him to captain his own ship. The wines are some of the best value in the country.

This is a scintillating expression of Riesling. Nothing fancy (apart from a small component made in ceramic egg). Just amazing fruit made with a gentle and precise touch. This sits right alongside the best Rieslings in the Canberra region.

The demand for Bryan's wines escalates every year, and with great value wines like this coming from him so consistently, it's no wonder.

    Fantastic alternative pack

    This is a great little pack and excellent value for money. The wines are all not your standard style Rieslings and are all experimental styles (oak, wild ferment. lees etc.) which are not traditionally associated with Rieslings. They've all be done very well by some very good winemakers.

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.
