About The Wine

Greg from Delinquente is making some super smashable booze from the Riverland. 

Here he steps on the gas, looking for a more spicy, bunchy side of his pet red varieties, Nero d'Avola and Montepulciano. oth were fermented as whole bunches elevating these varieties above their usual slurpy, easy drinking standing.

It's a little wild and ludicrously delicious to drink. Absolutely some of the most interesting wines coming out of the Riverland are from this young gun.

Keep an eye out on what comes next from him.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Showing beautiful deep purple in the glass, the nose is bold and expressive, dark brambling fruit characters accentuated by slightly reductive, savoury notes and a natural funk that is ubiquitous of these whole bunch style wines. The palate opens in similar fashion, but with a voluptuousness, almost soft, velvety element and very clean dark berry flavours that allow such easy drinking. Behind this, a soft, fine tannin rolls through providing structure, and a natural acid line gives length, and heightens the palate." - Greg Grigoriou

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 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).
