About the Wine

The Lane Vineyard aims to craft premium single vineyard wines that combine the finesse of Europe, the flavour of Australia and the unique characteristics of their Adelaide Hills vineyard. The Block 14 Basket Press Shiraz is one of their most celebrated wines.

The block sits atop a 450m rise high into the Hills. The traditional basket press technique helps to delicately extract all the flavour and character of the fruit with a gentle touch. It’s a suave, sexy Shiraz, truth be told. The most recent reincarnation, the 2015 vintage, is a classic vintage of this wine.

It offers supremely classy drinking, a long term cellaring prospect and affordability, all in one bottle. If you love the cooler climate Shiraz movement in Aus, this is a benchmark wine you need to try.

About The Lane Vineyard

The Lane are forging a reputation as one of the Adelaide Hills' premier producers, and are all about quality and authenticity with every single berry grown on site at their own vineyard. Their philosophy is to craft premium single vineyard wines that combine the finesse of Europe, the flavour of Australia and the unique characteristics of their vineyard.

Chardonnay and Shiraz are what the Edwards family do best, but Bordeaux varieties - red and white - perform strongly also.  With a gorgeous cellar door and restaurant The Lane is well worth a visit, and with their ever-improving range of premium wines they are truly a star Hills producer.

Huon Hooke

"Great Colour: deep purple/red. A rich, meaty spicy scented wine with velvet soft texture. It has a superb combination of spice and richer fruit characters. Lively acidity refreshes the finish. Good balance. Fine wine." - Huon Hooke (huonhooke.com)

Aus & NZ Wines of the Year

"Pepper, game, blueberries and black plums define a savoury and complex shiraz that captures the cool climate elegance of its high vineyard with depth and character. A long and full finish is accurately directed by firm, fine tannins." - Tyson Stelzer (Tyson Stelzer's Australian and New Zealand Wines of the Year 2017)

91Points
The Wine Front

"Smooth, blue and black cherry fruit, sweet spice and vanilla oak. Medium bodied, supple and spicy, sits a bit flat on the palate, but delivers a sophisticated mouthful of Shiraz with a savoury coffee-laced aftertaste of satisfying length." - 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 1300 668 385 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).
