2023 Meadowbank Riesling

Winemaker Peter Dredge doesn't put a foot wrong when he's got fruit this good to play with, and this is simply a top-flight Tassie Riesling.

As is often the case with Riesling from this part of the country, retaining a little residual sweetness here was the key to balance.

A wine of impeccable line and length, this is ripe for drinking immediately or tucking away for up to a decade in the cellar.

98 points & Top 100 Wines of the Year
"It’s such a ravishing wine, as rich and deep as it is pure and fine. Redefines citrus."
- James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

2023 Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Riesling

Two old Eden Valley Riesling vineyards combine here under the guidance of Domenic Torzi.

The Frost Dodger is quintessential Eden Valley Riesling - lithe, light but full of flavour. Torzi left the wine on lees for eight weeks prior to racking to build in more weight and texture but the end result is as pure and pristine as any Riesling you are likely to see.

It feels dart-like and über refreshing. A seriously good value wine given its potential for ageing up to a decade or more and its stellar drinking in its youth.

We think this wine is surely one of the best value white wines made in Australia. A bargain!

94 points
"Texture is lovely, and indeed, this Riesling continues to be one of the most distinctive offerings available from this country. As an aside, it’s quite Italianate in its delivery, which of course I really like."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

2023 Rieslingfreak No.12 Flaxman Valley Riesling

The Flaxman Valley Riesling is one of the newer additions to the Rieslingfreak stable, with it first being released to celebrate John Hughes' achievement of being named Barossa's Winemaker of the Year.

It's a beautifully delicate yet structured wine; elegant and a bit 'grown up' in its own way. Zesty and racy, bursting with floral aromas, and a beautifully moreish hint of minerality.

All lovers of crisp dry whites, this one should be at the top of your list. And for the dollars asked, this is outrageously good value!

"This stunning High Eden Riesling instantly delivers with tense aromas of wet stones, apricot, spice and kaffir lime with youthful impact and energy... Benchmark Eden Riesling. 2026-2038"
- 97 pts, Andrew Caillard (The Vintage Journal)

2022 Two Tonne Tasmania TMV Riesling

Riesling from the Tamar Valley here (TMV) from young winemaker, Ricky Evans.

This is a tightly coiled and refined Riesling of streamlined fruit character and finesse. A smidge of residual sugar gives this a lovely balance in the mouth, making it brilliant to drink immediately and a gem for the cellar, depending on when you like to drink your Riesling.

Ricky continues to impress, a rising star of the Tasmanian wine scene and one to keep a close eye on. If you love Riesling from cooler climes, this is absolutely worth a look.

"Very pale lemon colour, touch of lime at the core. Lime curd tart and jasmine on the nose. Sits towards the off-dry spectrum with bright lime fruit and pastry notes at the core. It is well framed by nervy acidity and as it flows a seaside note builds into a finish that offers a drying fuzz of grip to balance the sweetness well."
- Stuart Knox (The Real Review)

2023 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.

96 points - "This is something else and delicious. Heady aromatics wafts of lemon blossom, ginger flower and spices, yet the palate steals the show. Textural, waxy, stony and complex with a silk-line of acidity all the way through. A cracking drink on its own or with food."
- Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2022 The Story Whitlands Riesling

This is a lovely cool-climate Riesling from Rory Lane. He's been making it now for a number of years and has his approach to this fruit pretty well dialed in.

It's barrel fermented in a large foudre than finished with a smidgen of residual sugar, both the hint of sugar and the oak lending a little more texture and weight to the fragile, high-tensile fruit that this Whitlands vineyard produces.

A delightful wine kept perfectly in balance and a great place to start if looking to slightly sweeter/more textural styles of Australian Riesling.

94 points
"This is a gorgeous style of wine. It offers lemon, kaffir lime and chalk notes with the most delicious burst of flavour-carrying acidity through the finish."
- Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

    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.

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.
