Really delightful. So into these styles.

About The Wine

Ryan O'Meara certainly isn't afraid to do things differently, and 'Grape Fields Forever' certainly is different!

It's a curious blend of Porongurup Pinot Noir with some skin contact Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon to create a juicy, vibrant, fun-loving number, made for easy warm-weather drinking.

Refreshing in its style and super lively, it sits in some weird space between a Rosé and an orange wine. Ryan defying convention once again.

In short, it's a quirky yet totally tasty little number and top value.

About Express Winemakers

Express Winemakers is Ryan O'Meara's pint-sized wine operation from the deep south of WA.

From kicking off in 2011, Ryan has assembled a group of top-flight vineyards from around the Great Southern that supply him with top-flight fruit to make his fun and creative range of wines.

There's some serious value to be had in the Express range, from funky & skinsy whites, through spicy cool-climate reds and everything in between.

Express Winemakers is a terrific example of the ever-rising tidal wave of young and adventurous WA producers reinventing the west!

Additional Info

From The Producer

The 2021 is organically farmed Porongurup Pinot Noir with a backbone of skin-contact Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. The final blend was a mixture of co-ferments and mono-varietal ferments, with a strong emphasis on the Pinot Noir. The palate is high energy with white strawberries, cherry juice and a little elderflower. Overall it's made for ultimate refreshment.

The Wine Front

"A blend of stuff, hang that, drinks as per a more structured rose or a light, chillable (do it!) red. Raspberry, cherry cola, floral characters, super fresh, bright, zesty and clean with a light click of tannins to close. Not changing the world but with a heap of purity and vibrancy on its side. Really delightful. So into these styles." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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). PLEASE NOTE that we are currently seeing significant delays in the Australia Post delivery network. 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).
