About The Wine

As Syrahmi owner/winemaker Adam Foster clearly states, with his Demi Shiraz "Over delivering is the name of the game!"

Demi is a mid-weight Shiraz with loads of character from two well-known vineyards in Heathcote: the Shelmerdine and Greenstone vineyards.

There's a fair amount of whole bunches used (75% this year) and even some portions fermented in ceramic egg. A lot of thought and detailed winemaking in a wine that sits on the shelf at $30.

A terrific introduction to a hugely exciting Victorian winemaker, and as far as Heathcote Shiraz goes this as good value as any!

About Syrahmi

Adam Foster loves Heathcote.

He loves the ancient soils, the climate, the fruit that grows in the area. This is his personal label that focuses on individual parcels of fruit from some of the most idiosyncratic vineyards in the region.

Adam has planted a small vineyard on a granite-riddled outcrop in Tooboorac which has enormous potential.

His wines are old-world inspired, powerful and intense. A producer to watch for the future, no doubt about it.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Full bodied, ripe with black cherry, plum and green herbs. Plush and luxurious, moreish, chewy tannins, powerful fruit through the core. So much bang for buck here. More finesse than the '16 and all the better for it. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"This is the generally most approachable-when-young version of shiraz from winemaker Adam Foster, but geez, it dials in a lot of detail anyway.  Shiraz with meaty gamey qualities rippling through the wine. Peppery spice jostles blueberry/black berry juiciness to taste but again the rambunctious game meat/bacon bone character comes round. Perfume is en pointe, flavours satisfying and smooshy in the slosh and pucker of texture. It’s wearing a t-shirt saying ‘slurp me’ then you sit down and drink it out of a big glass and pause, because it works on two speeds. This is Great." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

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 1300 668 385 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).
