So delicious. Found it hard to stop tasting.

About The Wine

Justin and Lisa Jenkins are two wine folk ex-Melbourne who moved to Gippsland with hopes of making wines that invoke, "A fleeting moment. An expression of a time and a place."

Their dream is quickly becoming a reality.

This release of a slippery, spicy cool-climate Syrah from Gippsland is an absolute cracker. Low in alcohol (12.3%) but high in flavour, this is a great buy for those who love the more elegant side of the Shiraz variety.

With 94 points from Mike Bennie, Fleet should be on your radar for exciting new up and coming Victorian producers.

The Wine Front

"From husband and wife Justin and Lisa Jenkins, formerly of City Wine Shop, now moved to regional Victoria to pursue other dreams. These early releases, from Gippsland fruit, have been very good. This is next level. A beautiful and definitive ‘syrah’ here, paying homage to lower alcohol (12.3%), medium weight, spice and what feels like whole bunch influence (though could just be cooler fruit, it’s finely woven into the wine). Sleek, red fruited, dusted with white pepper, spiked with green herb and briary character. Those seeking cooler, mid weight, savoury syrah will be well rewarded here. Long in flavour, luxurious in sweet and savoury characters, finely wrapped in a web of tannin, finishing with some building grip and yet freshness. The perfume is gorgeous too. It’s of an ilk, wonderfully realised. So delicious. Found it hard to stop tasting." - 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).
