About The Pack

This pack is designed purely for those who want to drink like a rockstar on Christmas day.

We've got six absolutely sensational reds here and only a limited amount to go around.

The pack includes the benchmark Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from Hoddles Creek, Taras Ochota's cult-status Fugazi Grenache, one of WA's truly original reds from L.A.S. Vino, the last stocks in the country of Luke Lambert's hallowed 2017 Nebbiolo, Mount Mary's small-batch Cabernet Franc and the limited release single vineyard Dappled Syrah from Shaun Crinion in the Yarra.

It's a snapshot of just how awesome Australian wine is today. There are only 50 packs available. It will be sold out before Christmas.

Treat yourself to this killer mix and drink like a legend this Christmas.

2018 Hoddles Creek 1er Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

Now firmly ensconced as one of the Yarra Valley's most collectable Pinot Noirs, the 1er from Hoddles Creek never disappoints.

This immaculate vineyard in the Upper Yarra produces some of the region's finest fruit. Winemaker Franco D'Anna only releases it in the best vintages. With the 2018 release, he thinks he has made one of their best to date.

The 2018 is long and exceptionally well balanced. Lower yields and increased demand will mean that this will be only available for a limited time.

A wine of remarkable value and world class quality - if you're a lover of Pinot Noir then this is a must buy.  This is Australian Pinot Noir at its very best.

2019 Ochota Barrels Fugazi Grenache

Taras Ochota's wines have an air of rebellion about them - constantly challenging the status quo. He combines hands-off winemaking with a meticulous attention to detail and has been creating some of South Australia’s most interesting wines of the last few years.

His Fugazi Grenache is a wine that was ahead of its time. It set the tone for a more elegant, pure-fruited, medium-bodied style of McLaren Vale Grenache which is definitely in vogue at the moment.

The 2019 release is  a richer version of this wine, but one that maintains its sense of youth and vitality. 

A Grenache with a pure heart and a rock and roll soul.

2018 L.A.S. Vino Pirate Blend

The Pirate Blend. Now this is a wine with a lot of personality and something very different from your average Margaret River blend.

It is comprised of three Portuguese native varieties inspired by Nic's time making wines in Portugal: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao and Sousao, all three of these characters offer something a little different to the party.

The bottle looks like it has just been brought up from below deck and the wine itself feels raw and untamed, but underneath it all is some serious winemaking and a clear vision which has been realised brilliantly by Peterkin.

Want to see what is on the cutting edge of Margaret River? The Pirate Blend is it!

2017 Luke Lambert Nebbiolo

This wine is always the most anticipated release from the remarkably talented and enigmatic Luke Lambert.

And it's no wonder; this is regarded as a benchmark for Australian Nebbiolo. From a single site on unique granite soils in the Yarra Valley, this is quite simply one of the finest examples of this variety you will find anywhere in Aus.

It's made with traditional methodology: wild ferment, extended time on skins (20 days) and maturation in a combination of 2000L foudre and old Slovonian and French oak.

With a glowing 95 point review from The Wine Front's Gary Walsh and his comments that this is "A magnificent expression of Nebbiolo.", this is looking like one of his finest releases to date.

Unfortunately, he only makes this wine in miniscule amounts. Allocations are extremely limited.

2017 Mount Mary Reflexion Cabernet Franc

The Reflexion wines of Mount Mary aren't made every year. On occasion it's a label that houses declassified fruit, however here it stands as a home for an interesting stand alone wine from the 2017 vintage.

This Cabernet Franc is from younger vines as part of the rootstock replanting project underway at Mount Mary. The fruit was earmarked for Quintet but winemaker Sam Middleton felt it didn't quite fit and he liked it just on its own.

There's a splash of Merlot in the final blend for a little more flesh, but what you get in the end is an extrodinarily aromatic, vibrant example of Franc which is appealing from the get go. Drink this while you wait for Quintet to mature, would be our suggestion.

2018 Dappled Single Vineyard Fin de la Terre Shiraz

"Fin de La Terre" translates to "The End of the Earth" - winemaker Shaun Crinion says it takes so long to drive to this vineyard during vintage feels like you're about to reach the edges of our planet.

The drive is worth it. The Shiraz fruit that comes from this Steels Creek vineyard is stunning.

The 2018 vintage was fermented as 100% whole bunches, Shaun thinks the combination of sweet fruit generated from cab mac (carbonic maceration or whole berry ferment) needs the spice and architecture that the stalks provide to be a well balanced wine.

This is a beautiful, elegant representation of Yarra Syrah.

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
