About The Wine

The Glenrowan/Rutherglen regions are famous for two things; killer fortifieds and big, muscly reds.

Simon Killeen is on a mission, to take the wines of North East Victoria to the rest of the world, and what better way than with a modern example of old vine Shiraz from this historic region. This 100 year old dry grown block is in the Glenrowan GI. It is not the classic monstrous style of Shiraz often found in the area, this has a bit more class and style.

He used 30% whole bunches in the final blend of this wine, which gives it an edge, the bunches bringing a sense of wildness to the nose and making the palate deep and fresh all at once.

A rocking Shiraz. Get some.

About Simão & Co.

Simon Killeen is a seventh generation winemaker born and raised in the Rutherglen region. 

His father and grandfather crafted some of the country's most legendary fortified wines, now Simon is taking up the mantle under his own label, Simão & Co.

Simão (Portuguese for Simon) is a nod to his love of traditional Portuguese fortifieds and his time spent making wine in the Douro. 

Simon is deeply passionate about the wine and history of North-East Victoria. With a range that spreads from Beechworth to the King Valley and out to Glenrowan, he is making it his mission to spread the word on the unique wines from his home.

DDS review

Intense aniseed and blueberry, some char, stalks and spices with faint coal notes in tow. Pomegranate and red currant highlights. It's full bodied, sleek, stylish and spiced. Firm, defined by delicious moreish tannin. Lipsmacking gear, here. Nice one. - Different Drop Wine Team

Decent drop

Classic central Vic style Shiraz; however there are similar standard Heathcote wines cheaper.

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).
