About The Wine

This Sangiovese is about drinkability first and formeost.

Tony Fikkers explained to us that in the past he's had to share this vineyard with some other local Yarra Valley producers, meaning he hasn't always had full control of picking times and the general shape of the fruit. Different story though in 2016, and this Sangiovese is right where Tony wants it.

Medium bodied with lip-smacking fruit front and centre and savoury flourish through the finish, this is an insanely gluggable version of this sometimes tricky variety.

He likes his wines to offer "interest, 'boozability' and great value", and this emphatically ticks all three boxes. Yummo!

About Fikkers

Fikkers is the one man operation of Yarra Valley winemaker Anthony Fikkers, and it's a name we will be hearing much more of. 

Working with a range of local growers, and crafting the wines alongside Steve Flamsteed at Giant Steps, Fikkers is all about small batch, hand made wines made in unique styles and with minimal intervention.

You won't see the wines on many store shelves because there just aren't enough of them, but they are absolutely worth trying and add a great new colour to the Yarra Valley landscape.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Red berries and earth, a sweep of fine, spicy tannin, bright juicy acidity, this drinks like a dream. Stays smooth and medium bodied from beginning to end. Finishes with a moreish cherry juice acidity. Sangiovese you can slug back as easy as you like. - 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?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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).
