Man, the drinkability! How do they make it so cheap? Brilliant drinking.

About The Wine

A pigeon-pair with the Rouge of the same vintage from young gun winemaker and grape grower Ryan O'Meara.

This whacky little wine combines Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chenin Blanc and Riesling into a fresh but textural wine that id pretty close to impossible to stop drinking. There's some whole-bunch pressed portions of fruit, some skinsy stuff, unfined, unfiltered and bottled a little wild. Lots going on but still offering easy drinking appeal, that's the modus operandi of Ryan's operation.

It's loose and flighty, top value and interesting. Serious drinking pleasure for the dollars asked here.

About Express Winemakers

Express Winemakers is Ryan O'Meara's pint-sized wine operation from the deep south of WA.

From kicking off in 2011, Ryan has assembled a group of top-flight vineyards from around the Great Southern that supply him with top-flight fruit to make his fun and creative range of wines.

There's some serious value to be had in the Express range, from funky skinsy whites, through spicy cool-climate reds and everything in between.

Express Winemakers is a terrific example of the ever-rising tidal wave of young and adventurous WA producers reinventing the west!

Additional Info

From The Producer

It was difficult to blend, but it’s easy to drink. After much deliberation, the final blend for this wine is whole bunch pressed Sauvignon Blanc (55%) and Chenin Blanc (15%) from my vineyard in Mount Barker, combined with skin fermented Semillon (25%) and Riesling (5%) from the Clos du Tertre vineyard in Frankland. The wine has aromas and flavours of tropical fruits and green herbs with natural acidity as bright as the sun.

Blend : Sauvignon Blanc (55%), Chenin Blanc (15%), Semillon (25%), Riesling (5%)
ABV : 10.70%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2020
Bottle Size : 750ml

The Wine Front

"Lively and fresh, elements of sour-sweet and light chalky texture. It’s got so much personality, freshness, vitality. It’s a jumble of citrus and apples and just-ripe stone fruits. Man, the drinkability! How do they make it so cheap? Brilliant drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 02 8376 8775 or 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).
