About The Pack

There's so much diversity across the wines styles of South America.

From the bright and poppy Pais reds in Chile to the thunderous Malbecs of Mendoza, there is so much to explore.

Here's a little snapshot of some of the best value reds we've found from this part of the world over the last few months. 

If you want to see what South American reds are all about, this is the easiest way to do it!

2018 Finca Don Carlos Khilix Malbec

Finca Don Carlos was founded in 2004 in the heart of Tupungato Village, at 1,000 meters above sea level.

This ultra-modern winery crafts exceptional value Malbec from their high-altitude vineyards. These wines are clean, bright and show off all the assets that have made the Malbec wines of this part of the world so sought-after.

This is their fantastic value entry point wine. 

At under $25 a bottle, it gives all the rich plum, chocolate and blackberry notes and smooth, silky tannins that you want in a Malbec from this part of the world.

If you're a Malbec lover, this is a dead set bargain.

2018 Matias Riccitelli Hey Malbec!

Matias Riccitelli is a madman in Mendoza.

Young and full of energy, Matias is crafting a range of wines that are challenging many of the preconceptions of the Mendoza region.

His wines are made with a gentle hand and show a more raw and unpolished side of the region. That is to say, his wines feel like they were grown, not made. In a sea of over-ripe, over-oaked Mendoza Malbec, they offer a refreshing change of pace.

The Hey Malbec! is his wine meant for early consumption. It's an excellent example of fresh-faced Malbec that is near impossible to put down.

2017 Laura Catena La Posta Paulucci Malbec

Dr. Laura Catena's grandfather Domingo was the man many attribute to being the father of Mendoza wine as we know it today.

Laura has taken over her family's business and today is one of the loudest spokespeople on the quality of Malbec from Argentina, her passion, knowledge and vision for the future are revered and respected the world over.

La Posta is a label designed to celebrate the great local growers that form the backbone of the Argentinian wine industry. Each cuvee comes with the name of the family who grew it. Too often it is the winemakers who take the limelight, Laura has made it her mission to make sure these passionate growers get the credit they deserve.

This wine was grown by Angel Paulucci on a beautiful vineyard in Ugarteche. It's basically the perfect everyday Argentine Malbec - full bodied and opulent but delivered with restraint. A delicious wine and great value given the price, the love and the care gone into making it.

2018 Tinto de Rulo Pipeno Pais

Tinto De Rulo is a small, boutique operation that was formed when three friends pooled their money to make a small batch of wine together.

They now produce around 1200 cases a year, this is one of the smaller wines in their production.

Pais is a native Chilean variety that makes light, breezy, crunchy red wines. When made with no additions whatsoever, as is the case here, it makes wonderfully vibrant lighter-bodied reds with loads of energy.

This organically-grown version is super drinking. Light, nervy and a hell of a lot of fun to drink, if you're looking for an interesting red you can knock a chill into, this is a great bet.

2018 A Los Vinateros Bravos Granitico

It's funny that Chile is considered the New World in wine terms. Particularly when you factor in that the vines that made this delicious little Pais could have been planted as far back as 300 years ago.

Leonardo Erazo is one of the leading figures in the avant-garde of Chilean wine.  With degrees in both in Agronomy and Enology, Leonardo combines modern precision and cleanliness with ancient winemaking techniques to get the very best out of his dry-grown vineyards in the Itata Valley.

This elegant example of the local variety Pais exemplifies his winemaking style. It's clean, fresh and not dissimilar to a wilder style of Gamay or a crunchier Cab Franc. Though it is a light red there is plenty of fine detail to explore in the glass. 

It's a fascinating wine with plenty of charisma.

2016 Antiyal Pura Fe Carmenere

Alvaro Espinoza is considered the godfather of biodynamic viticulture in Chile.

Since 1996 he has lead the pack for a more sustainable and holistic approach to grape-growing. The quality of the wines he has produced over the years has made plenty of his contemporaries sit up and take notice.

From small, garagiste brand to one of the modern icons of the country, Alvaro has had a crazy ride over the past 20+ years and has been incredibly influential over the journey.

Carmenere is one of Chile's flagship varieties. Espinoza's version is powerful, structural and loaded with earthy spice. It's a big red with a big personality. If you're traditionally a lover of red Bordeaux red varieties, this might be right up your alley.

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.
