About

About The Wine

An approximately 50/50 blend between the “Heroes” vineyard and fruit from a 43-year-old vineyard in the Moorabool Valley.

Wild yeast fermented with a small proportion of whole bunch. Matured for 10 months in French oak with 20% new.

About Heroes Vineyard

Having established himself and Bannockburn, and Clyde Park, Englishman James Thomas has now firmly planted his flag with his recently launched Heroes Vineyard wines from a sustainably grown, unirrigated vineyard in the Otway Hinterlands, James is producing 100% estate grown wines.

With no additions bar sulphur in the winemaking,and a vineyard farmed without chemicals, these wines are a pure expression of vintage and region. In James’s own words “Heroes’ Vineyard was born out of my desire to make wines of the best possible quality without compromise and using non-interventionist methods.”

The Real Review

Deep, dark, red/purple hue, with a vegetal, humus-like, spicy aroma strongly suggesting whole-bunch fermentation. The vegetal theme continues on palate, where it's medium-bodied at most, with sinewy tannins and a firm final grip. A good wine in a left-field, super-bunchy and quite Rhôney style. - Huon Hooke

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 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 hello@differentdrop.com 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).
