About the Wine

Fresh red berry Grenache meets earthy Mataro for a traditional McLaren Vale marriage made in the Hither & Yon winery. What a story for the grandkids.

Some savoury notes of black tea and pepper surround the primary raspberry fruits. Another great value effort from the Leask Brothers.

About Hither & Yon

Hither & Yon are Malcolm and Richard Leask, brothers from a famous winemaking family background. The brand is based in McLaren Vale, and while the mainstay varieties of Shiraz and Grenache are key, they dabble in high quality Carignan, Nero d'Avola and Touriga.

As the brothers say.."Every year, Mother Nature challenges us to a game of hide & seek ~ The fun begins as we search hither & yon through our medley of vineyards scattered high & low across McLaren Vale’s diverse majesty ~ Our quest ~ to discover that secret place each vintage, where the variety & vineyard environment have conjured something above & beyond expectations ~ Then we respect this prized fruit by allowing it to express itself, pure & natural."

Halliday Wine Companion

Classic southern Rhone Valley style, with the wild herbs and spices of the garrigue giving pleasure in the rims of aromas and flavours alike. It will be hard to keep your hands off it, but it could be a knockout with more time in bottle. - James 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 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 1300 668 385 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).
