About The Wine

"Typically, this is extraordinary value." Mike Bennie once wrote on the Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz. The 2017 vintage does not disappoint.

This is right in the sweet-spot for the Barossa/Eden Valley lover. It's ripe but balanced, the focus on the luscious fruit the region is famous for rather than oak.

There aren't many Barossa wines that compete with this for value for money. Barossa fans should buy with confidence.

The Wine Front

"Spicy greenery of whole bunch, truffle, blackberry, dried herb and flowers, a wee bit of camphor. Medium to full-bodied, fine grainy tannin, a whole lot of spice, saline and savoury stuff in among fruit of almost Ribena-like intensity. Lovely grip and chalkiness through the finish, and more of that intense blackcurrant trailing along. It’s very Eden Valley, but with Torzi fingerprints all over it." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

”This is exceptional shiraz, with more a cool climate sheen than one of Barossan grunt. Soaring aromas of lilac, cured meats, iodine and tapenade whet the imagination. Blue to dark fruits, all. 25% whole-bunch, ambient yeasts and a soft touch across the oak and extraction regime has resulted in a pulpy, grapey wine bursting with brio, drinkability and fine balance. No hard acid. Absolutely delicious!" - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

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?
