About

About The Wine

Both Eleana Anderson from Mayford and Jo Marsh from Billy Button have an affinity with Tempranillo.

The two friends have both helped put the Alpine Valleys on the map as an Australian home for the variety. When the two had a chance to work on the white Spanish variety, Albarino, the pair jumped at it.

It's made very simply, half of the fruit was fermented in stainless, the other half was aged in barrel on lees for six months before being bottled.

Two friends, one variety. It has turned out a treat. Keep an eye out for their collaborative Tempranillo which is also due to be released soon.

About Mayford

Mayford has been a work in progress since 1995, it is now considered one of the leading producers in the Alpine Valley. Setting the bar high, are Eleana Anderson and Bryan Nicholson. Very high indeed.

They only produce four wines from their bucolic estate; Chardonnay, Shiraz, one of the country’s best Tempranillo and a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet which shows immense promise.

Bryan tends the vines, Eleana makes the wines. From the vine to the bottle, this couple do it all themselves. Small batches of wine with only quality in mind.

A jewel in the crown for the Alpine Valleys and Porepunkah region.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Picked in the cool of the early morning, the juice was separated into 2 parcels at pressing. The first, free run juice was sulphured at pressing to retain the bright fruit flavours, cold settled using enzyme then cool-fermented in stainless steel with a selected yeast strain. Following this, the ‘midcut’ was filled directly to an old puncheon that was allowed to undergo ferment with wild yeast on full grape solids. At the completion of ferment the puncheon was topped, both parcels were sulphured to prevent malolactic fermentation and matured on lees without stirring for 6 months. The parcels were then blended together, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

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).
