About The Wine

This is a museum release of the iconic S+S Shiraz from the very fine 2009 vintage.

It received  some great write-ups at the time of release with 97 points from Halliday and 93+-95 points from Gary Walsh who commented that, "Seems a little more exciting and edgy than previous releases, which is great to see."

The wine is just coming into its own and is quite limited, as is often the case with premium museum release wines, but definitely worth a look if you have a limited amount of aged wines at your disposal.

They don’t come up often so get in quick.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

97Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Deep colour, vibrant hue; deep and compelling levels of ripe black fruits, savoury spices and well handled toasty oak; the palate is unctuous and silky, with black and red fruits combining with silky fine-grained tannins expanding across the palate with true grace and harmony; long and luscious." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

95Points
The Wine Front

"Smooth vanilla and chocolate, pepper steak, blackberry – all spicy and saucy with balanced acidity – lovely slick of grainy controlling tannins and good length of flavour. Medium weight and a little tense as a young wine, with a minor level of herbal and dark chocolate bitterness adding interest. Latent potential here?  Seems a little more exciting and edgy than previous releases, which is great to see." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 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. 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?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
