Melted cherry chocolate on the palate, and some lingering tannins for structure.

18 months in French oak, a third new.

About Salomon Wines

Two hemispheres. From north to south. The Salmon Estate family story is a winemaking journey unparalleled in the world. Bert Salomon is a seventh-generation descendant of the great Austrian wine dynasty Salomon Undhof, renowned since 1792 for creating the finest Rieslings and Gruner Veltliners from the Kremstal region west of Vienna. In the 1980s he also pioneered the importation of Australian wines to his homeland.

Bert and his wife Gertrud have a love for great red wine and diverse cultures, which brought them to Australia hoping to broaden their horizons and find the perfect place for a vineyard to satisfy their wanderlust. As they searched, they fell in love with the landscape around the Finniss River district on South Australia’s southern Fleurieu Peninsula, and after meticulous terroir-based research settled on a site that became their southern-hemisphere home.

Halliday Wine Companion

Matured for 18 months in French barriques (33% new). Intense, full-bodied blackberry fruits, with notes of blackcurrant, plum and earth. Oak and tannins provide the impressive structure of the wine. Drink by 2036.’ - James Halliday Wine Companion

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).
