The Bekkers Syrah Grenache is a meeting of the two great red varieties in McLaren Vale.

The fruit is taken from three vineyards, the Grenache from the same as the Bekkers Grenache, the Abr vineyard and the Shiraz component from the famous Hickinbothom and Gateway vineyards. This fruit is highly sort after. It does not come cheap. And rightfully so.

It's a wine that shows the poise and polish of their Syrah with the ethereal quality of their Grenache balanced perfectly on a knife's edge.

Complexity, ageability, drinkability - this classic McLaren Vale blend has it all.

What better than a marriage of McLaren Vale's two hero varieties? A blend of Syrah and Grenache, this wine rests equidistant between the fragrance of our Grenache and the mouth-filling generosity of our Syrah. It exhibits the soft, silky texture that we see as the signature of all our wines.

96 Points - "A 64/36% blend from multiple parcels spread across six vineyards, vinified separately, 15% whole bunch grenache, 30% whole bunch syrah, 5-16 days cold soak, wild fermentation, basket-pressed to used oak. Deeply coloured; medium to full-bodied, noticeably bigger-bodied than the Grenache, with black fruits." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

94 Points - "Bekkers wines seem to have settled into the upper echelon of Australian fine wine pretty comfortably now, and only off the back of a relatively short number of releases, though of course the back story speaks of experience and detailed understanding of vines and wine. I hope that there’s a good following for these wines out there.

Slippery, dense and yet fresh-feeling red showcasing deep, dark fruit character with a swish of earthy, grunty tannin shaping things. Nice hit of bramble in that darker fruit, some sweet and savoury spice (hello cloves) in the mix. Excellent shape, tension and length. A classy feeling wine from the get-go, but I bet this looks even better in three to five years and more. Very seductive. And one for lovers of fine tannin." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
