About
Lovely wine. Unpretentious in the best of ways.

Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

About The Wine

This is the lighter, fresher side of Viognier not often seen.

We've all had the big, ripe, blockbusting styles of Viognier, and some of them, sad to say have made more enemies than friends. This is a different beast altogether.

Tim Kirk has managed to bottle the essence of Viognier without the 'heaviness' so often associated with the grape.

No oiliness here. Just a bucket load of freshness, vitality and a lot of casual drinking pleasure.

About Clonakilla

Clonakilla is one of the true icons of the Australian wine scene. Since its inception, it has been one of the leading lights of the Australian cool climate wine insurgence.

They boast one of the most collectable wines in the country in their Shiraz Viognier, a wine of outstanding quality and consistancy over the last two decades.

Whether Shiraz, Riesling or otherwise, every wine in the Clonakilla stable are considered amongst the benchmark examples in Canberra District.

Quite simply, Tim Kirk and his family-owned estate are one of the true gems in the Australian wine industry crown.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Two varietal viogniers are released by Clonakilla each year; this is the fresher/bottled early version. It smells both delightful and delicious. Really sets the mood. Fruits, both floral and ripe, float fleshy and free. Fresh apricot rather than apricot jam, if that makes sense. It’s like taking a bite of summer at its best, before it’s become just a bit too much. Lovely wine. Unpretentious in the best of ways." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Stainless steel-fermented and bottled early. The advice on the back label is peremptory: drink it now. And Tim Kirk is right. Tasted Sept '18 it was crisp, with a vibrant slash of fresh ginger its raison d'être - and a good one at that." - James Halliday (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?

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).
