About The Wine

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and that's certainly the case with this little wine from Tim and Lawrence Scanlon.

There was a good chance they were only going to release around 30 dozen reds from 2017 until young rock 'n' roller Jordy Kay (Chevré Wines) came to the rescue. 

He found a little Shiraz from the Bluestone Lane in Balnarring. The boys grabbed it with both hands. 

In the winery, they fermented half the fruit as whole bunches, sent it to old oak to chill out for a while, then bottled it without any additions including sulphur. 

This is a spicy, crunchy, delicious little Syrah which was well worth the pain on picking day (see From The Producer for the story).

Additional Info

From The Producer

Fearing that we may only be able to release 28 dozen of an actual red wine led us to seek out another parcel of red fruit for 2017.  Luckily for us Jordy Kay was able to help us find some Syrah from Bluestone Lane in Balnarring. 

*Fun fact about this wine, when we picked it, the tractor wouldn't work, so we had to drive the forklift as close as we could to the vineyard to get the bins back to the winery. Dad and I bogged it 3 times that day. Awful, awful day of picking.*

50% whole bunch, gentle hand maceration for 3 weeks. Pressed into old wood. Nothing added

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2021
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Huge kick of green peppercorn, black plums and black cherries straight off the bat. There's some real vibrancy in the glass, the fruit high toned and a little earthy at the same time. Don't look for a big, blockbusting Shiraz here. This is all about spice and slippery mouth feel and it's nicely done. Interesting little take on Victorian Syrah. - Different Drop Wine Team

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).
