Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Intense red, bright, with violet edges that reflect its youth and intensity. Intense, complex with clear notes of jams, plums and spices, combined with notes of vanilla and mocha for its contact with oak barrels, predisposes us to try a great wine. With a sweet entry of ripe tannins, balanced and with good persistence, a great varietal that invites to the second glass. Roasted red meats, red sauces, roasted lamb, etc." - Finca Don Carlos

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.

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.
