About

About The Wine

Spinifex frontman Peter Schell is most known for his reds, but 'Lola' has to be one of the most creatively conceived whites in the county.

The 2017 is a deviation in the makeup from previous Lolas. This vintage combines Semillon, Vermentino, and Clairette into a deliciously textural and vibrant table wine. Not exactly your typical Barossa blend!

The fruit comes from a selection of Barossa vineyards planted up to 110 years ago, with Pete taking the best parcels each year to craft the wine he feels the vintage warrants.

It's always a structural, savoury and textural wine, but the 2017 shows a delightful hint of herbaceousness on account of the large Semillon component I would challenge you to find a more interesting and food-friendly white blend than Lola, and considering its small production and the work Pete has put into crafting it, it really is outstanding value for money.

About Spinifex

Spinifex are one of the 'New' Barossa's true pioneer producers.

Husband and wife team Peter Schell & Magali Gely have extensive experience in southern France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals.

Spinifex was on the front line of the new wave of Barossa producers. Peter's wines brought a new sensibility to the region, they were lower in alcohol, concentrated but elegant, and balanced to perfection.

He takes the art of blending into the realm of the virtuoso.

There are few wineries who deliver refinement and poise from the Barossa Valley like Spinifex.

From The Producer

In 2017 the growing season rolled out softly and evenly – no heat waves, no untimely rain, bush fires or locust plagues……. and delivered wines with bright fruit, freshness and pleasing natural balance.

Blended from old vine Semillon (58%), Vermentino (25%) and Clairette (17%) parcels all hand harvested from four different vineyards in the Barossa Valley, with varying soil types ranging from ironstone shot red clay and deep alluvial loams to classic red clay over limestone terra rossa.

Chilled fruit was macerated for up to 2 days prior to fermentation in a combination of old French oak barriques, puncheons and stainless steel. Bottled without filtration after 8 months on full lees.

Blend : Semillon (58%), Vermentino (25%), Clairette (17%)

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).
