About The Wine

Nick O'leary is one of the rising stars of the Canberra wine district. With over a decade's worth of experience in the industry, Nick is one of the 'must watch' winemakers of his generation.

His specialties (as you might expect - coming from Canberra) are Shiraz and Riesling. His Riesling is renowned for it's pure fruit, exceptional balance and moreish approachability as a young wine.

The 2018 release is electric. One of his very best to date. Made in his low-tech winery on the southern escarpment of Lake George near Bungendore, as Mike Bennie once said, "Riesling sings in this lads hands."

DDS review

Bath salts, lemon rind, crystalised ginger. It's dry and buzzing with energy. There's honeysuckle, green apple and lime flavours but set to a firm, slatey backdrop. Quartz, a searing backbone of rapier-like acid. Prodigious length. The faintest chalkiness to the finish. Awesome Riesling. - Different Drop Wine Team

A new reason to focus on Canberra

Politics was the reason why Canberra was considered the centre of attention for Australians. Now, with the rise of winemaker Nick O’Leary in the nearby Hall Valley, we can add his presence to the reasons why the Australian Capital Territory is worth bowing to. Dedicated to Shiraz and Riesling, it’s the latter of these that caught my eye recently. As a riesling devotee, I have to say Nick’s now top of the list with his supremely attractive offering from 2018. The lemon, ginger and lime are standouts for this delicious addition to a lazy Sunday binge-watching an SBS Nordic​ noir crime series!

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).
