About The Wine

Exciting wine here, from the hands of winemaker Wes Pearson.

This Grenache comes from two top vineyards in McLaren Vale: one planted over 90 years ago in the Clarendon sub-region, and the other in Blewitt Springs. The value on offer here is outstanding.

As Gary Walsh noted in his glowing review, "Graceful. Good now, but no hurry.". It strikes that elusive balance between finesse and power effortlessly. If you like Grenache while it's rippling with primary fruit, there is plenty of joy to be had here already.

However, if you are looking for something that will look all the better in a few years time, this will equally fit the bill. Another wine to add to McLaren Vale's impressive list of excellent Grenache.

About Dodgy Bros

What started as a small garage winemaking project for viticulturalist Peter Bolte, has grown into a full-time fun-filled winemaking gig.

With fruit secured from top growers with a handshake, Peter, along with Canadian winemaker Wes Pearson and 'grower extraordinaire' Peter Sommerville are now making tasty treats in a wide range of styles from excellent McLaren Vale sites.

The Dodgy Bros wines don't take themselves too seriously. These are adventurous and energetic wines with plenty of personality.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The 2017 Grenache is a blend of two vineyards from the north-east end of McLaren Vale. 1.6 tonne of fruit was harvested from Bernard Smart’s vineyard in Clarendon (planted in 1921), and 1.3 tonne of fruit came from the Wait family vineyard in Blewitt Springs (planted in 1942). The Smart fruit was crushed and destemmed while the Wait fruit was left with approximately 30% whole bunches. Ferments were handled gently with no additions, pressed to old large format oak up on completion of primary fermentation and left on fine lees for elevage. The wines were not fined or filtered.

The Wine Front

"Perfume and softness here. A little spice, rose water and milk chocolate, mint, red fruits. Supple and nutty, almost a praline quality in both flavour and tannin profile. Smooth. Charming. Powdery tannin reaches out on the finish, and all that rose perfume wafts out. Graceful. Good now, but no hurry." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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).
