About

About The Wine

Graillot is a collaboration between wine importer Robert Walters and iconic Northern Rhone Valley winemaker Alain Graillot.

After importing Graillot's wines for many years, Robert decided to utilise the Frenchman's Shiraz/Syrah growing expertise to make wine from the rich soils of Heathcote.

The release of the 2016 vintage sees young Yarra champion winemaker Luke Lambert continue his run as Head Winemaker for the project wines in partnership with Maxime Graillot, Alain's son.

The 2016 'Syrah No.2'. is some of their finest collaborative work to date under the Graillot label. It's a brilliant example of modern cool climate Australian Shiraz.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The resulting Syrah No. 2 is already highly perfumed with sappy, pungent notes of lavender, pine forest and an intriguing hint of sandalwood. The palate is fleshy and expansive with a core of sweet dark cherry and ripe plum fruit complexed with hints of meat juice, liquorice, and Szechuan spice. There's loads of spice and pepper to close and terrific coolness that we love." - Rob Walters

Additional Info

From The Producer

There was no 'No. 1' made in 2016 so all of the parcels ended up in this wine.

The resulting Syrah No. 2 is already highly perfumed with sappy, pungent notes of lavender, pine forest and an intriguing hint of sandalwood. The palate is fleshy and expansive with a core of sweet dark cherry and ripe plum fruit complexed with hints of meat juice, liquorice, and Szechuan spice. There's loads of spice and pepper to close and terrific coolness that we love. It's still settling down from bottling (November 2017) and you can expect more and more finesse and flesh as it comes together.

For now don't be scared to give it air. It is excellent the following day after opening, and even the day after that, which makes it perfect for pouring by the glass, hint hint! As has been the case for a number of years, there was zero new oak used in the maturation and the alcohol clocks in at the low 13's.

Blend : Syrah (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2030
Bottle Size : 750ml

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

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).
