About

About The Wine

A single barrel of Shiraz fruit from a single block.

All whole bunch fermented. A wild and particularly European expression of Syrah from the Adelaide Hills by the hands of Turon White.

This is a smoky, meaty wine that looks much more like something you might see out of Hermitage than out of the Adelaide Hills. It's such an interesting wine, with the hallmarks of a young talented winemaker behind it.

If you love a more Eurocentric expression of Shiraz, this should be right in your wheelhouse.

This was rated 95 points from James Halliday and there were only 30 dozen made.

About Turon

Turon White is a young, articulate and intelligent winemaker - the kind we need more of in this country.

His mission to go beyond just variety and region, and explore sub-region, the site and the clone as a wholistic investigation. He is ahead of the curve in much of the Australian wine industry.

With only a few vintages under the Turon label under his belt, the future seems bright for this great new Adelaide Hills talent.

In 2019, James Halliday dubbed him, "One of the best three new wineries in this Companion". There's plenty more to come from this SA rising star.

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked, open-fermented, basket-pressed, matured in a single French hogshead for 15 months. Doesn't seem it was a new hogshead, but 1yo. The colour is excellent, the wine a compelling mix of luscious dark fruits, finely tuned tannins and oak providing texture and balance." - James Halliday (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 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).
