About This Wine

From fruit grown at Angullong vineyard in Orange, this is a concentrated Shiraz with nice aromatic lift from the small addition of Viognier.

Aromatically complexity, the addition of the white grape adds a nice roundness to the palate as well. On the nose there are ripe dark fruits, sweet spice with a subtle influence for the new oak component. Full-bodied the palate is ripe and elegant, with a core of silky tannin.

An aged release, the wine has a nice evolved feel now, yet with the backbone to carry it, for a few more years with ease.

About Centennial Vineyards

Established in 2001, Centennial Vineyards in the Southern Highlands of NSW was the first winery in this GI to be awarded a 5-star rating by Halliday.

Since its inception they have had one winemaker; transplanted Kiwi Tony Cosgriff.

While the core of their wines are from the high-elevation region south of Sydney, they also have a more recently planted vineyard in Orange, which is farmed sustainably and in conversion to organics.

While mainly known for their exceptional sparkling wines, their foray into Orange has allowed them to grow their range, with new plantings of a more diverse range of varietals.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"4% viognier, 8% shiraz as whole bunches, crushed/destemmed shiraz on top, 4 weeks on skins, to French oak (23% new), 6 months rack and return, after 12 months selected barrels blended and bottled. A very fragrant and complex bouquet, then a juicy, supple medium-bodied palate follows logically on. Lovely wine." James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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.

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 02 8376 8775 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.
