 It’s thirst-slaking and glorious to chug.

About The Wine

A contender for Australia's most insane blend here from the hands of Jared Dixon.

This is a field blend of twelve varieties picked and fermented wild as whole bunches. To see the likes of Nebbiolo, Pinotage, and Touriga working in tandem with Gewurztraminer and Petit Menseng is something you don't see every day.

It's an effort from Jared to showcase this special New England vineyard as it appeared in vintage 2018. A wild and untamed wine where all matter of curious and wonderful things emerge from the glass.

It's enthralling drinking. This is one for the curious wine lover, the true explorer of all things vinous. Only 400 bottles made.

About Jilly Wines

Jared Dixon is a lone ranger on his own mission in the New England wine region.

His wines are made from interesting varieties grown on unique vineyards, sites he classes as ‘undiscovered gems.’ His winemaking is extremely hands-off, allowing the full expression of the fruit to be the focus of every wine.

They are fun, don't take themselves too seriously and have a distinct energy about them.

Jared is one of Northern NSW's most exciting and impassioned young winemakers. Where he takes his idiosyncratic label from here is anyone's guess.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Topper’s Mountain vineyard, picked all at once, whole bunch fermented, contains 12 varieties, white and red. Crazzzzzzy. And cool.Lovely drinking experience here. Juicy, lightly tannic, vibrant in fresh fruit characters, dashes of spice, herbs, herbs and ‘mineral’ things. Jostles with sour-sweetness, light bitterness, drunk cold. It shows huge vitality and interest. It’s thirst-slaking and glorious to chug. Kudos." - 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).
