About The Wine

Owned by brothers Richard and Malcolm Leaske and based in McLaren Vale, Hither & Yon crafts a unique range of wines from varying sites within McLaren Vale each year.

The philosophy being to ideally match variety, vineyard and vintage and then without much intervention, let the wines truly express themselves. The types of wines they're putting forward are as exciting as the eye-catching packaging - Nero d'Avola, Tempranillo, Aglianico, Muscat Blanc and uniquely styled takes on your classic Rhone Valley and Bordeaux blends.

The Nero d'Avola is one of their most popular wines. This latest release took out the Bushing Monarch Trophy at the 2019 McLaren Vale Wine Show. It's been one of the country's benchmark examples of the variety for some years now. The 2018 is right on point.

It's light, fresh and approachable nature makes it the perfect easy-drinking red. You can even give it a light chill - it's the perfect Summer red.

From The Producer

The fruit was handpicked in the early morning of March 29 and delivered to the winery where it was then gently de-stemmed and crushed into open top fermenters, we aimed for 50% whole berries. A cold soak took place for 5 days, then fermentation was for 10 days, with hand
plunging taking place 3 times per day, then lightly pressed to tank where the free run juice and around 50% of the pressings were combined.

Once the wine was dry, it was sent to 4 year old French oak puncheons, for a total of 7 months only, all of the process to retain vineyard and fruit freshness. A micro screen filtration, (no fining) then bottling; completing the process on December 7, 2018 and sealed under Stelvin screw cap.

DDS review

"COLOUR: Saturated colour of bright crimson, with dark purple rim. AROMA: Blackberry, dried thyme, forest floor,black pepper. PALATE: Dark berry fruits, supple long tannins, with a savoury nip to finish. Brown earth notes and Italian herbs add complexity and structure, suggesting good ageing and food matching potential." - Hither & Yon

FaQs

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).
