About the Wine

Hand picked and sorted, whole bunch pressed with 6% destemmed and spending 10 days on skins. Ambient yeast ferment in seasoned oak and a 1200L foudre. No added sulphur. There were two bottlings, this wine was bottled unfiltered.

“It put me in mind of the Loire with its flinty, curry powder riff (bash a couple of silex stones together and see what you get). It has a texture and wildness that speaks of natural barrel ferment on full solids and 10 days’ skin contact, neither techniques dominating, which makes for a harmonious palate…Seamless.” Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective UK, 2018

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

Three year old sauvignon blanc will be mistaken as a concept but this wine will do away with any concerns. A textural feast, lightly chalky and drizzled-on-tongue minerally, incredibly complex and fresh at the same time. Lemon curd, tight, green apple, tight, a looser flow and roll of salted peanut and creamy yeasty character bundled into the core. Wow, this has so much going on, so much presence, personality. - Mike Bennie

leftfield but good field

fantastic nose burst on opening the bottle. Very refined though and atypical on further inhalations. great mouthfeel- with a ripping acid that demands food.

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 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).
