Classic Syrah. All just so.

About The Wine

Le Sol is the flagship Syrah from NZ juggernaut, Craggy Range.

This is the Rolls Royce of NZ Syrah. A powerful wine with awesome intensity, but with all the class and polish you would expect from this iconic estate.

The 2015 is a more refined than some previous iterations of this wine as winemaker Matt Stafford continues to refine picking dates and the oak regime. It's a flawless release. Good for at least a decade in the cellar. 

About Craggy Range

One of New Zealand's true pioneering and benchmark producers, Craggy Range is a family-owned success story of the highest order.

With vineyards in both the famed alluvial soils in the Gimblett Gravels sub-region of Hawkes Bay and in the premium Pinot Noir-growing region of Martinborough, Craggy Range has set a high bar for quality wine production since 1994.

There is no expense spared in the Peabody family's pursuit of vinous excellence. With the winery being committed to a 1000 year family trust by founder Terry Peabody, the legacy of this great producer is sure to continue for many generations to come.

The Wine Front

"Blueberry and blackcurrant, white (and some all black) pepper, grilled meat, dried flowers, star anise and cinnamon. Medium bodied, fresh and spicy, dusty peppery tannin, vibrant minerally acidity, savoury first, with succulent small berry and dark cherry flavour in tow. Bursts with fresh fruit and white pepper on the long finish. Classic Syrah. All just so." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Le Sol (french: the soil) is born of the renowned Gimblett Gravels viticultural appellation with its gravelly soils attracting the sun in summer and insulating the vines in winter.

The vines are planted in the stoniest parts of the vineyard to a heritage clone of Syrah brought to New Zealand in the 1840s.

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).
