This is Canberra renegade winery Mount Majura's signature blend.

The focus here is not varietal expression, but a sense of place and, “letting the character of the site express itself through whatever varieties are best suited”. All the fruit for this blend is sourced from a single vineyard on the Mount Majura estate. The wine is built from Tempranillo, Shiraz and Graciano - three varieties that get along brilliantly.

Creative alternative blends can offer very interesting drinking, and this is one of the best you'll find in the Canberra District.

Our goal is to find the varieties that best suit our site, because we believe that when the right combinations are found, the wines gain an extra level of quality and character. Tempranillo and Shiraz are clearly the leading red varieties for our vineyard and climate, based on our experience so far. After a difficult start, Graciano has become a very rewarding variety, and is very distinctive as a varietal wine. First made from the 2008 vintage, the Tempranillo Shiraz Graciano blend is an example of good components coming together to make an even better whole. The 2016 TSG is 37% Tempranillo, 37% Shiraz and 26% Graciano. By blending, we take the spotlight off the variety, and put it back on the vineyard where it belongs.

91 Points - "Winemaker, Frank van de Loo, has a deft touch across the Mount Majura stable. The extraction is a point, the use of oak spot on; the resultant wines energetic and full of flavour. Tempranillo is a cantankerous variety, seldom bringing joy on these shores. Here lies the exception: a spread of red fruits waft over an undercarriage of herbs. medium-bodied, slinky tannins and a spurt of bright acidity carry into the next glass." - Ned Goodwin (Halliday Wine Companion)

91 Points - "Medium to deep red/purple colour, with a gently gumleaf-minty aroma coupled with red fruit nuances, and the palate is fruit-sweet and deliciously soft, lush and fruit-driven, while not guilty of simplicity. Good depth and richness, softness, balance and charm. A delicious and very approachable red wine." - Huon Hooke

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
