You can buy a lot of more expensive wines from this neck of the woods, though I doubt they’d be better.

About The Wine

This is Eden Valley Shiraz in full flight.

Grown by the Angas family on Hutton Vale Farm, a place their family has tended for now seven generations, Dan Standish has taken their fruit to a new stratosphere.

The 2016 Lamella is a transcendent Shiraz. An imperious wine of incredible density and purity, a feeling of elegance maintained through careful and sensitive winemaking. If you have never had your mind blown by an Eden Valley Shiraz, this may be the wine to do it.

With a humungous 97+ points from The Wine Front's Gary Walsh, this is about as good as Shiraz gets from this part of the world.

The Wine Front

"Hutton Vale Farm, Eden Valley. You can buy a lot of more expensive wines from this neck of the woods, though I doubt they’d be better. Blackberry, blackcurrant, sage and mint, liquorice and chocolate boxes, and an almost rosy perfume, and yes, it smells very good, but that’s just the appetizer (cue Cartman). Full bodied, almost a juiciness here, but then comes a sweep of ultra-fine tannin, that might best be described as ‘sexual chocolate’. Oh those tannins. Lavish mouth-soaking tannin layered through cool Eden Valley Shiraz fruitiness. Black tea, don’t mind if I do. And a finish that’s rippling with tannin, flavour and freshness. It’s obscenely good." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Every now and then we humble winegrowers receive a gift from the grape gods in the form of a perfect vintage growing season.
I feel that 2016 was precisely that, with a very dry winter and spring lead up to harvest and some serendipitous rainfall in late January.

As such, 2016 afforded the rare combination of rich palate filling wines of beautifully ripe tannins as well as the freshness of alluring graceful aromatics. Yielding four absolute standout parcels, certainly some of the best offerings I have ever seen from these particular vineyard sites.

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?

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?
