The La Biondina is a crisp but fruity dry white made from the late-ripening Italian variety, Colombard.

This has been a staple of the Primo Estate range for many years. It's a wine that has a lot of loyal fans due to its big, juicy flavour and crisp finish.

The fruit comes in in two stages. The first pick brings brisk acidity and freshness. The second pick, a couple of weeks later, brings in the ripe tropical fruit and explosive aromatics.

It's a fun dry white that's a little left of centre and solid bang for your buck. 

And it's great drinking on a warm afternoon with a plate of antipasto.

The Adelaide Plains are just 10 meters above sea level and benefit from cooling maritime breezes (you can see the ocean from our winery). The dry, sunny climate and sandy loam soil are perfect for growing the late-ripening Colombard variety. Half of the fruit is picked a first ripeness to give fresh, citrus fruit notes, while the remainder is allowed to hang for another fortnight to develop the rich tropical passionfruit flavours that are such a feature of La Biondina.

A long cool fermentation in stainless steel to preserve delicate fruit flavours, followed by early bottling to capture the freshness.

Enjoy these fresh flavours within 12 months of release. Food Our 'young blonde' is a popular girl who can make friends with a wide variety of dishes, especially seafood, and spicy Asian flavours. Try pairing with salt and pepper squid.

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
