About The Wine

Dune is a new project from the family that brought you Coriole wines.

The fruit for this delicious new Rosé comes from the Blewitt Springs vineyard that the Lloyd family has procured over the last few years.

This is a blend of Carignan and Shiraz, picked early and dialled into a pale, dry and effortlessly drinkable style.

A touch of oak was used to enhance texture but primarily this is about a light and breezy wine style that will match with everything from seafood to white meats. 

About Dune

Duncan and Peter Lloyd are the latest generation of Lloyds (of Coriole fame) to make wine in McLaren Vale.

Growing up immersed in the hotbed of food and wine culture that is McLaren Vale, the boys have now partnered up to start their own wine project with a stunning vineyard in Blewitt Springs as the centrepiece.

The grapes are farmed organically, the wines are made with a gentle touch, but rather than let the 'minimal intervention' philosophy hem them in with dogma, the boys are free to tinker and blend as they see fit.

These are fantastic, energetic wines that have set a cracking pace with only a few vintages under the brand's belt. Keep your eyes peeled for what's next for the brothers Lloyd.

The Wine Front

 “Duncan and Peter Lloyd are the sons of Mark Lloyd of Coriole and this is their own winemaking deal. Here we have carignan and shiraz contributing to a rose wine. Single vineyard, Blewitt Springs, oak and steel for its pre-bottle lifespan. Small batch stuff with an eye on minimal intervention. Buy into the legacy, stay for the refreshment factor.Pale, watermelon juice colour, that inviting sheen that says summer and crisp and refreshing. Delicate scents of rose petal, strawberry, faint spice. Mouthwatering immediately, fine chalky-crunchy texture, pretty with sweetness of red berry fruits that segues to a cool, fine, dry finish. Nothing over or underdone, just so, pitch perfect warm weather rose, with a bit of extra interest in its make up. Could guzzle all day long.“ - Mike Bennie (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 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).
