2018 Brothers at War Some Other Guy GSM

Clare & Barossa Valleys, SA

A classically styled ripe multi-regional South Australian GSM.




About This Wine

Fruit sourced from both the Clare and Barossa Valleys in SA, this is a pretty straightforward wine, south Aussie GSM in all its mouth-filling glory.

Vibrant and juicy, it’s all red-fruited and spice on the nose, while on the palate its more of the same, wrapped up in a texturally elegant frame.

Something quite interesting here, a wine to look at within the contextual framework of South Australian blends, yet there is something a bit different here, that just turns up the curiosity a notch or two.

About Brothers At War

Angus and Sam Wardlaw are the ‘Brothers at War’, starting off with a tonne of grapes, and an idea to produce unique expressions of the region they call home.

2nd generation winemakers, they leaned heavily of the knowledge gained from a childhood spend around their father, Barossa pioneer, David.

Working across the Barossa and Eden Valleys, the brothers produce a swath of wines; young fresh easy drinking styles, to much more serious, old-vine expressions.

Warring brothers at times perhaps, but when push comes to shove, like the Dire Straits song says, “You did not desert me, my brother(s) in arms.”

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 02 8376 8775 or 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).
