About The Wine

Josh Pfeiffer is doing good things at his family estate, combining tradition with innovation, a sometimes difficult line to tread.

Here is a younger vine Grenache from their Barossa Valley vineyard. As the name suggests, this is built to be absolutely annihilated on arrival.

It's a modern, more 'Pinot-esque' take on the Barossa staple. Built around brightness and freshness rather than richness and oak.

It's such a great glass of Grenache here from Josh, a good sign of the good things to come in the winery's future.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Grown on our Heysen Estate Vineyard using organic and biodynamic practices, our Grenache was planted in 2001 using the clone BVRC139. The west-facing slope has quite a bit of ironstone at the top of the hill, with deeper red clay and biscay soil towards the bottom, giving the fruit great complexity within the 2,359 vines.

WINE MAKING

20% whole bunch was used to give this wine some crunch on the palate, and some spice and lift on the nose. The remainder of the fruit was gently destemmed out in the vineyard and fermented as whole berries to give a nice carbonic maceration juiciness to the wine. The wild ferment was foot stomped twice a day in old concrete fermenters for 12 days before gentle basket pressing. The wine was then aged in old French oak puncheons for 6 months before blending and bottling with no fining and no filtration.

The Wine Front

"Redcurrant, raspberry, potpourri, rosehip and a little spice. Medium-bodied, red fruits and a pretty, but juicy flavour, sure-footed emery tannin, spice and peel, and a dry and satisfying finish. Beautifully made and great to drink." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Grown biodynamically, fermented with 20% whole bunches and given a short 6 month maturation in old puncheons. I can do all but concur with the label - get in my belly. Delicious, precocious, young drinking. Bright purple in colour, bright red fruited with a good dollop of spice and chalky tannins adding a savoury note." - David Bicknell (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).
