About The Wine

Shiraz has always remained a stalwart of the Mount Majura portfolio.

They were blessed with near perfect conditions in the region during the highly praised 2015 vintage and this brilliant Shiraz is just one more testament to that fact. Though entirely estate grown, the '15 is a blend of three different clones; one that was originally sourced from the Best's Old Block which lends aromatics and minerality to the wine; the second, known as Clone 1127 revered for it's richer and 'chocolatey' tannins and finally; their original plantings which were of clone PT23 which give the wine it's regoinal specific characters of blackberry and spice.

The final product is so well balanced it is ridiculous and makes a top notch example of why so many people now praise this region as one of the country's best when it comes to our most iconic variety.

The Wine Front

"It’s an excellent offering from this producer. Sweeter, fresh boysenberry fruitiness, sniff of floral character, pepper and sweet spice with a whiff of green herbs. Just so pretty to hang over. Wonderful bouquet. Medium weight, slinky and slippery, herb ‘n’ spice, crisp red fruits, dusting of pepper, fine web of tannins. Pitch perfect cool climate shiraz (syrah!) feel here. Lovely stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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?
