2020 Frankland Estate Alter Weg Riesling

One of the country's preeminent Riesling exponents here unleashing an alt-styling of their pet variety.

The Alter Weg is a Riesling inspired by the 'old-school' winemaking methodology practiced by the great Germanic Riesling makers of the old world. This is first class, organically grown fruit fermented for a time on skins, then matured on lees in barrel for 10 months prior to release.

It's a powerful, potent Riesling with layers of textural intrigue. In this wine, the new world meets the old. An awesome expression of Frankland River Riesling that will blow your hair back.

2021 Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling

The Polish Hill River Riesling comes from a single block in the Polish Hill sub-region of the Clare Valley.

John Hughes thinks this vineyard produces the best fruit of all his vineyard sources.

There's an extra level of intensity here. That classic iron bar of acidity as a spine, the chalky crunch of a green apple, wonderful perfume and glorious purity.

This sits comfortably alongside the best wines from this famous sub-region of the Clare.

2021 Bests Great Western Riesling

"Its beauty is effortless."
Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)


As always, this wine from Best's is one of the most approachable and easy-to-enjoy Rieslings around, while being an equally great cellaring prospect.

Best's have a long history with this variety, with winemaker Justin Purser suggesting this release from the well-balanced vintage is more reminiscent of those Rieslings from the 80's and 90's with its balance, delicacy and easy charm.

One of Victoria's most bankable Rieslings, year-in, year-out.

2020 KT Riesling Churinga Clare Valley

KT is all about Riesling, it’s her raison d'etre, and the reason she is so madly in love with the Clare Valley in general, and Watervale specifically.

This single site expression from the Churinga vineyard comes off dry grown vines planted in 1954. To Kerri, Riesling is the variety that most expresses its origins, thus these wines are an homage to the growers she works with and their special sites.

All the hallmarks of Watervale here, minerally, with citrus and tropical fruit driving the flavour profile. There is an amazing tension to this wine, with exceptional length, line, and precision.

2021 Stargazer Single Vineyard Riesling

 Sam Connew grows her own Riesling on the Palisander vineyard, in Coal River Valley, TAS.

It's an exciting development for Sam and her brand, now having viticultural control over her fruit. The first few releases have been excellent.

The thumbprint of Tasmanian terroir shines through, but there's possibly more joy to had in this wine in its youth than usual. Sam works lovely texture into the wine, utilising a touch of skin contact, some lees stirring and a dab of sweetness to allow the wine to find balance in its youth.

This is a classy Riesling with a generous personality.

2021 Ottelia Riesling

This a great value Riesling from a family-owned operation on the Limestone Coast.

It's been one of the great buys of Australian Riesling for a few years now, ever since the 2017 edition was announced as James Halliday's lowest ever priced 98 point Riesling. Subsequent vintages have not disappointed..

It's razor sharp and peircing in its style, a framework of incredible acidty rocketing along a bed of zingy citrus fruit, it's needle-like in its thrust.

It's a delicious, dry and crunchy Riesling, and once again, it's great value of money.

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.

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).
