About The Pack

Here's a selection of crisp, cool whites that will get you through the sweltering Summer months.

The pack is filled with a range of styles and a mix of varieties, but the one thing that they all have in common is that they are just too damn easy to drink.

2018 Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Riesling

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

The 2018 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 out of 2018.

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

Gary Walsh rated it  a whopping 95 points, fully agreeing that "It’s always a good wine, but I feel 2018 is extra-good."

2018 Simao & Co. Sauvignon Blanc

This is a lively Sauvignon Blanc that comes at you head on.

Simon Killeen takes every precaution to keep his much-loved "Savvy-Boo" as bright and as clean as possible. Pressed early and gently, the wine is crystal clear as it runs to the tank. A small portion goes to barrel before being blended back into the wine for some added mid-palate flesh and succulence.

It's chilled and kept on lock-down until it's gently fined before going to bottle. The desired end result is Sauvignon Blanc which is fresh and crisp with a little more to it than meets the eye.

Simon nails the style, it's excellent drinking.

2016 Main & Cherry Grüner Veltliner

Barossa Valley and Shiraz. Hunter Valley Semillon. Adelaide Hills and Gruner Veltliner?

Who knows, but there are a fair amount of very good examples popping up from this part of the country, just like this one from Mike Sexton and his boutique wine label, Main & Cherry.

The 2016 vintage of this wine was fermented long and slow at low temperatures and sat on lees for six weeks prior to ferment to slowly enrich the texture and it's worked a treat.

This won a Gold Medal at the 2016 Alternative Varieties Wine Show and was also awarded 95 points by James Halliday.

This is a very good version of the variety, both varietal and easy to drink. If you want to check out this interesting Austrian variety, this would be a very good place to start.

2018 De Iuliis Semillon

Year after year De Iuliis's early released Semillon is one of the Hunter Valley's true bargains.

We love Mike De Iuliis's classy range of wines and it's great to see such good value from the Hunter. Where some of Mike's more premium Semillon releases are built for contemplation over several years in the cellar, this wine is built for contemplation over several seconds in your glass.

Light, fruit-driven and utterly smashable, this is Hunter Semillon made for drinking, not thinking.

2018 Unico Zelo Jade & Jasper Fiano

The Unico Zelo owner/winemaking dynamic duo of Brendan and Laura Carter are hugely passionate about Fiano, and they wholeheartedly believe in this variety's suitability to Australia's climate and culture.

So do we, it's a winner.

This comes from the ancient sandy limestone soils on the iconic Ricca Terra Farms vineyard in the Riverland region of South Australia. Like in previous years it's a wonderfully textural wine, but I reckon this release seems a little more balanced and even clean-cut than the '17.

It looks the goods. All up it's delicious to drink, perfectly built for enjoying with food and great value for money.

2018 Gilbert Blanc

This is a delish little white made for approachability and slurpability.

This year's white blend is a bricolage of Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer. Sourced from the cool climate vineyards in Orange, this is an easy drinking expression of an Alsace style white.

The three super aromatic varieties just work so well together.

Lively and refreshing, this will be a picnicers delight and something perfect to have on hand for your next BYO expedition.

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

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?

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).
