About The Wine

The Cirillo Vincent Grenache lays claim year after year to be one of the country's best value Grenache, and the 2017 is no exception.

Marco Cirillo's family lays claim to the world's oldest Grenache vines, the most ancient of them dating back to 1850. The Vincent is the baby of the bunch made from a blend of 80, 90 and 100-year-old vine material.

Vincent is a charismatic character, just like his maker. It bucks the trend of big, sweet, oaky Barossa Grenache and sits firmly in the bright, cheery and gluggable camp. A portion of whole bunches give it a lifted perfume and silky texture, while the use of older French oak and stainless steel ensure this is a lot brighter and bouncier than many of its Barossa counterparts.

About Cirillo

Marco Cirillo is Barossan to the core.

His family lays claim to the world’s oldest Grenache vines, the most ancient of them dating back to 1850.

His range of wines made primarily from Grenache and Shiraz scream quality at every level, with enormous value to match. Traditional Barossa winemaking meets historic vineyard resources - a true gem of Australia's most famous wine producing region.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

How do they do it for the price?! This is just great drinking. Riberries, plum and black cherry. Fine but plush and silky smooth. There's high pixel tannin and tons of moreish, spicy fruit. Remarkable fruit depth for the price. A little finer boned and more detailed than the 2016. Brilliant for the bucks. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Juicy, bright, flavoursome red, gently sweet, dusted with spice and green herbs, slinky textured, super high drinkability. Vivacious, perky, crisp fruit tannins and frisky acidity a feature. Almost a transparency here – purity and freshness on its side, though touches of meaty savouriness and almost a pinosity chime in for character. Grrrrreeeat drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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

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).
