Excellent shiraz. Satisfying fruit, beautiful balance, creamy mouthfeel and enough complex edges to keep you interested.

About The Wine

The HJ Reseve Shiraz is the pride and joy of the Oliver's Taranga team.

The fruit that contributes to this top flight McLaren Vale Shiraz has many times been a contributor to Penfolds Grange.

It's everything you could want in a classic rich and opulaent style of Shiraz from this region. It shows the inky black fruit, a hint of vanilla and mocha from the premium oak it's housed in. It's a thumping wine that's built for the cellar.

The 2017 release was rated 98 points by James Halliday and selected in his Best of the Best Shiraz list for the 2021 Wine Companion.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Shiraz is what the Oliver’s love and it is in Shiraz that they trust. A full-bodied, rich wine; dark chocolate and mocha notes fill the nose, while the palate is all mulberries, dutch liquorice and cacao. It will reward aging, just as the same sweet patch of dirt has rewarded the Oliver family for generations.

AROMA
Bright mulberry and blackberry on the nose, dark chocolate and mocha
 
PALATE
Lifted cherry berry, mulberry freshness, liquorice and plenty of spice. Mouth watering tannins, sweet fruited and dark chocolate to finish. Delish!
 
WINE & VINTAGE
2018 is one of the vintages of the century. Perfect ripening, good solid crops, strong winter rain and lack of heat waves made it pretty near perfect!

Stunning drop

Absolutely delicious! It's thick, bold and juicy with plenty of depth. Originally had this wine at a restaurant which was $98 per bottle.

If your order is placed before 12pm we’ll get it on the truck that day. Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy). PLEASE NOTE that we are currently seeing significant delays in the Australia Post delivery network. Strict government health and safety requirements and very high parcel volumes are causing significant backlogs at the main NSW and VIC sorting facilities. Orders are still arriving safe and sound but you may notice slower delivery times and less frequent scanning updates than usual.

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).
