About The Wine

Winemaker Alex Sherrah's eponymous label is all about interesting medium bodied wines that showcase the changing face of modern McLaren Vale wine.

The Sherrah Red ed Al. is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and, Nero d'Avola born from the soils of McLaren Vale. It's a tweak on the classic GSM blend the region does so well.

Cheery red fruit from the Grenache, a plummy centre from the Shiraz and an aromatic lift coming from the Nero d'Avola, the blend is spot on.

James Halliday rated it 95 points, it's solid, joyful drinking from a very good winemaker.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Grenache (60%) from the Lacey vineyard in the Tatachilla sub region of southern McLaren Vale. Bush vines planted on their own roots from cuttings taken from old Barossa Grenache. Deep alluvial sand over a clay base, unirrigated. Shiraz (23%) from the same vineyard, but higher up on the hill with sandy loam over limestone base scattered with ironstone fragments, 1654 clone on its own roots. Nero (17%) from the Petrucci vineyard east of the McLaren Vale township in an ancient riverbed.

Grenache was handpicked, destemmed only, open fermented with 15% whole bunches. Cultured yeast, 14-day ferment, pressed to seasoned Puncheons.

Shiraz was machine harvested with a Selectiv® harvester and transferred directly to an open fermenter without destemming/crushing or pumping. Cultured yeast, 14-day ferment, pressed to seasoned oak.

Nero from a vineyard within site of the sea was harvested at 14 baume to capture bright fruit and a softer tannin spectrum.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"60% grenache was hand-picked, open-fermented with 15% whole bunches, 14 day ferment, matured in used hogsheads and puncheons, the shiraz Selectiv'-harvested and transferred direct to open fermenters for a 14-day ferment with cultured yeast and matured in used oak. The red fruits of the grenache out-gun the black fruits and tannins of the shiraz." - James Halliday (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 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).
