About
Rose doesn't come better than this.

James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

About The Wine

Winemaker Dave Bicknell and his team have turned out a beautiful Rosé from the great 2017 vintage in the Yarra Valley.

A meeting of the three Pinots: Noir, Meunier and Gris, this is a luscious, fruit-forward wine style with a cheeky personality.

It's all about flavour and ease of drinking. James Halliday awarded it a whopping 95 points and the Wine Front's Gary Walsh awarded it 94 points opening his review with, "It’s bloody beautiful! Need you know more?"

Such a lovely wine to while away an afternoon and cracking value to boot.

About Oakridge

Oakridge is one of the Yarra Valley's most respected wineries.

Under the direction of master winemaker Dave Bicknell, it has been a major player in defining the modern styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Yarra over the last decade.

From the elite 864 range to the amazing value Over The Shoulder range, there's quality at the core of everything Oakridge puts its hand to.

Bicknell has rare touch as a winemaker, carefully eeking out the individual character of each vineyard he works with.

Each wine speaks with absolute clarity of where it comes from. These are excellent, masterfully crafted wines and great value to boot.

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"The innovative blend of 75% pinot noir, 16% pinot meunier and 9% pinot gris has proved to be a brilliant success thanks to the attention to detail in the vinification. Wild strawberry flavours are on intimate terms with the spicy, tangy acidity. Rose doesn't come better than this." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"It’s bloody beautiful! Need you know more? Touch of smoke and wildness, redcurrant and pears, savoury and dry, fine acidity and a little brick dust to the texture, a little fairy dust in the winemaking, perhaps, and an almost earthy but fresh finish of fine length.  The flavour lingers in your mouth. Well sophisticated. And cheap!" - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

    Oakridge over the shoulder rose 2017

    Undoubtedly one of the best Aussie rose I have tried in the last couple of years. Plenty of fruit and spice on the palate with lovely crisp and satisfying finish. More please.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
