About The Wine

Highlighting the different soil types that Cellar Pardas farm, this wine showcases local indigenous variety Xarel.lo, grown in nutrient poor limestone, and Malvasia from their vineyards grown on rich alluvial soil.

It’s a dichotomy of sorts, lots of mineral complexity from the Xarel.lo, balanced out by small quantities of rich full-flavoured Malvasia. This gives the wine an almost Rieslingesque lime character, in harmony with more tropical full-flavour complexity.

This is a wine with a linear structure, a harmonious blending of two varieties, grape styles and structures. It’s a wine that takes you somewhere… somewhere really nice.

About Celler Pardas

Part of the new wave of producers from around Catalonia, Celler Pardas, purchased their property in 1996, but didn’t produce their first estate wines until 2004.

Ramón Parera and Jordi Arnan are the vignerons behind this project, they started with a blank slate, clearing scrubland on their property, and planting cuttings to create their vineyards from scratch. Farming organically their dry-grown vineyards range across three main areas of differing soil types, clay, rich alluvial, and limestone. Each micro-zone grows the grapes which are best suited to the soil variations, and the wines they want to make.

Jordy and Ramón are emphatic in declaring themselves viticulturalists not winemakers. They only produce wines from fruit they grow themselves, with their property not only being their home, but also their “cultural landscape”.

Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

Strict government health and safety requirements and very high parcel volumes are causing significant backlogs at the main NSW and VIC sorting facilities.

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 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).
