About The Wine

Invigorating Pet Nat from NSW mastermind Nick Spencer, though he uses the full title on the label, Petillant Naturel, as he is an educated man.

It's dominantly Grenache with some Sangiovese added for some extra grunt, all sourced from elevated sites in the Hilltops regoin. Really tasty, and vinous as well, with some good fruit concentration alongside insane drinkability.

One of our favourite Pet Nats of 2021.

About Nick Spencer Wines

Nick Spencer made a name for himself after a hugely successful decade-long stint as chief winemaker at Eden Road, before deciding in 2017 to take the plunge and start his very own label.

The Nick Spencer wines are, like Eden Road's, focused on the regions of the NSW High Country, in particular, Tumbarumba and Gundagai.

With Nick's access to some of the region's best fruit, his wines are all about balance, style and drinkability, with Nick's stamp of quality on top. Tiny volumes made and an exciting producer to watch out for!

The Wine Front

"Old Nick is getting too cool for school these days, as I also spotted a range of ‘amphora wines’ while grabbing a bottle image for this. This Pet Nat didn’t gush, is made from Grenache and Sangiovese, and had a nice splotch of red yeasty stuff stuck to the cap and inside neck of the bottle. Obviously I’m Australia’s leading authority on Pet Nat…Spice and alpine herb, cherry cola thing happening, though it’s not sweet, as such. Strawberry and a cooling Ricola hard sweet flavour, light playful bubbles, a little orange and peel bitterness on a good long finish. Love this. Top effort." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Delicious drop

What a complex yet smashable Pet Nat. Very special wine that we have been enjoying with Japanese at home. Great service and quick delivery too.

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).
