About
Gee, this is very bloody good to drink.

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

About The Wine

Here's a great example of a modern Shiraz from McLaren Vale.

The fruit comes from three different vineyards across McLaren Vale that are up to 55 years old. Yes, it's ripe with all that big, beautiful fruit you want from this part of the world, but it has freshness and an energy at the same time. 

A touch of Mataro adds a little extra somethin' somethin', dark and moody with a little x-factor. This got a solid nod from Jane Faulkner with 95 points in the Halliday Wine Companion. 

A solid no-brainer for those who love Shiraz from this part of the world.

About Dodgy Bros

What started as a small garage winemaking project for viticulturalist Peter Bolte, has grown into a full-time fun-filled winemaking gig.

With fruit secured from top growers with a handshake, Peter, along with Canadian winemaker Wes Pearson and 'grower extraordinaire' Peter Sommerville are now making tasty treats in a wide range of styles from excellent McLaren Vale sites.

The Dodgy Bros wines don't take themselves too seriously. These are adventurous and energetic wines with plenty of personality.

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"The fruit comes off three McLaren Vale sites, one planted in '55, with 12% mataro in the mix; gentle handling with the winemaking including aging in French and American oak hogshead (7% new). Bottled unfined and unfiltered, the result a finely modulated wine. It's not a big red. It's full of red fruit though, buoyant and juicy with the right amount of spice, licorice with well-knitted tannins providing a savoury twist on the finish." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

93Points
The Wine Front

"Dark berries, coconut and chocolate, perhaps a little like a Bounty Bar, but in the best possible way. It’s medium bodied, supple and subtly saline, but also has an earthiness and bouncy bass that brings this baby home. Tannin is fine and well meshed, and the finish features an array of red and black fruits, with a sprinkling of dried herb perfume. Gee, this is very bloody good to drink." - 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. 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: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
