About The Wine

The Snapdragon is Vanessa Altmann's big and juicy take on Viognier from McLaren Vale.

This is a ripe and juicy wine which screams its variety. A dash of Trebbiano thrown in for a little savoury edge and some skin contact give some textural layers, but at its core, this is a luscious white wine with plenty of personality.

A colourful wine, organically grown, from an enthusiastic young winemaker in top form.

About Switch

Switch Wines is a one-woman-show run by experienced winemaker, Vanessa Altmann.

After years as winemaker at Temple Bruer mastering all things sustainable and preservative free, Vanessa struck out on her own to create her band of unique wines.

She has a keen eye for an oddball plot of organically-farmed fruit, like Pinot Noir from Eden Valley or Viognier from McLaren Vale. Sometimes the wines are preservative free, sometimes they aren't, but they are always delicious and packed with personality.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Fleshy, creamy, rich and delicious style of Viognier here. It's apricoty, peachy, even a hint of pineapple and some ginger spice. Nice crisp acidity keeps it from feeling cloying and some phenolic grip lends some textural interest. Ripe and playful. Heaps of flavour. Nice one. - Different Drop Wine Team

Big on flavour

A generous oak that is well balanced. The citrus tones give the wine a nice lift.

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

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?

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).
