About The Wine

In the 1860s, the Craiglee farm was under vine.

The site produced some highly acclaimed wines but like so many vineyards of old, when grapes ceased to be profitable, other forms of farming took their place.

Patrick and Dianne Carmody replanted their small farm in Sunbury in 1979. Their first commercial release was the 1980 vintage Shiraz. And, as they say, the rest was history.

Today the Craiglee Shiraz is one of the most collectable in Victoria. An old-world charm and finesse pulses through the wine's veins.

This wine is the cornerstone of many great cellars. And rightfully so, year after year this site delivers effortless Shiraz of class and purity with great longevity in the cellar.

This wine is highly aromatic with rhubarb, blueberry, raspberry and violets on the nose. The palate is savoury with persistent blackberry flavours plus a load of pepper and spices, then a wave of fine tannins to complete the picture. Oak, fruit and acidity are in perfect balance in an expressive and stylish wine.

The Wine Front

"Violet, blackberry, five spice, tobacco and subtle oak. Medium bodied, but plenty of flesh and ripeness, layers of spice, a beautiful mouth-perfume mingling with savoury earthiness, and powder fine tannin running on a long finish. All just so. Wonderful expression of Shiraz from a distinguished site." - 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 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 02 8376 8775 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).
