2018 Casa di Si Jesus Angel Grenache

Calatuyud, Spain

Old vine Grenache from the historic and mountainous region of Calatuyud, Spain. Ole!


Savoury red, delicious, wonderful, lovely. I’m in.

About the Wine

Some wines just emanate magic and resonate with it. This is one of those. Taken from a single hectare of 100 year old vines, which grow at 900 metres asl. The region is the old kingdom of Aragon, Spain. More specifically Calatayud.

Dry grown with no pesticides used. The fruit was hand selected before seeing a portion of whole bunch fermentation and pressed into old puncheons. There, it sat and developed for two years before resting in bottle for another six months.

Oh, jeez. This is seriously good stuff. It's dense and concentrated, but at no time does it ever look unapproachable. Like a lot of Spanish reds, the focus here is on drinkability rather than complexity - but there is a lot of complexity going on too. Dried cherries and fresh cranberries, cocoa powder, Mediterranean herbs, coffee grounds and some game all come through. Tannins are structural, and built to last, but not intrusive. This is what good wine, what great wine, is all about.

About Casa di Si

Casa di Si is very much the passion project of Sarah Morris and Iwo Jakimowicz, the husband and wife team behind Si Vintners in Margaret River.

Because wine making in one country wasn't stressful enough, the couple purchased some vines in the high country of Calatuyud in the Aragon province of Spain. They now own some old Grenache stock which they make in the 'off season' of wine growing in Australia.

All the fruit is farmed organically and hand selected. Much like Si Vintners, you can expect clarity of flavour, layers of texture and an honest expression of fruit from Casa di Si.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Excellent wine that teeters between juicy, darker fruited red and something more gossamer, flighty and fresh. A distinct alpine lift to the wine, sandy tannins swishing through and strong, graphite minerally character, oh, and some game meat too. Savoury red, delicious, wonderful, lovely. I’m in." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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).
