About

About The Wine

The Sanskrit Chenin Blanc originates from a single block in the Clare Valley.

It was here that winemaker Nav Singh found the fruit with the drive and intensity to make his small batch Chenin. It's tightly coiled but layered with complexity.

Fermented naturally in barrel with 6 months on lees, this takes Chenin into the domain of fine wine.

A wine of purity and intensity, this is Chenin Blanc in full flight.

About Domaine Simha

Nav Singh is the man behind the Domaine Simha label. Along with his wife Louise, Nav has built a unique stable of Tasmanian wines under the Domaine Simha banner. 

He draws from multiple philosophies when crafting his range. The winemaking is mostly traditional, using low amounts of additives, fermenting in clay amphora, experimenting with varying levels of whole bunch and skin contact. The fruit he sources from the Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley regions, is all picked according to the lunar calendar ala biodynamics.

At Domaine Simha, new project is always in the works. Nav is never afraid to take a chance or try something new.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Wafts of lanolin, lemon blossom and honeysuckle. The palate shows a complex fruit basket with bananas, fig, apples and a hint of vanilla bean. It's lusciously textured and yet defined by tight, minerally acidty that slices its way through the mouth. Serious Chenin. - Different Drop Wine Team

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?

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?

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).
