About
Stylish. Better with a few more years in bottle, I’d say.

About The Wine

The Yeringberg Shiraz takes on a more European styling with winemaker Sandra De Pury adding a splash of Viognier to bring her Shiraz to life.

It's a smooth, seductive style of Shiraz showing ripe blue fruits and a lilting aromatic lift provided by the white grapes.

If beefy, high alcohol Shiraz is your thing, perhaps look for another option. However, if you have a penchant for more refined expressions of the grape then walk this way.

About Yeringberg

There are few wineries in the Yarra Valley with the prestigious history of Yeringberg. The de Pury family were pioneers of the region, having one of the first vineyards in the region over 100 years ago.

The original vineyard was ripped out when the damand for Australian wine slowed to a trickle, however the site was replanted in the 1970s and is one of the great sites of the modern Yarra.

In James Halliday's opinion, "...(Yeringberg) are renowned for wines of finesse and elegance that epitomise the finest the region can produce."

Additional Info

From The Producer

Shiraz 97%, Viognier 3%. The depth and character of the fruit that our Shiraz vineyard is now producing is a delight to see. Subtle, savoury and deep set, the 2018 Shiraz offers aromas of blueberry, black pepper and dark cherry, building weight and presence as it unfurls, with complex notes of bay, thyme, salumi and liquorice. At the same time, there’s a freshness that wraps itself around the core of deep fruit, giving real lift and vibrancy to the perfume. The palate is immediately bright and energetic, with weight and richness too, savoury, subtle yet deeply concentrated, tightly wound and finely structured. Tasted over a couple of weeks, this is a wine that just keeps on evolving, so while it’s wonderful now, we’re equally confident it’ll provide drinking pleasure for many years to come. – Sandra de Pury

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Lots of dark fruits at play here, with some florals and spice of the earthy persuasion: licorice, cinnamon and menthol. A luscious, rich palate, fuller bodied with stretchy tannins. More a drink-now option." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Highly perfumed, exotic notes of cracked pepper and spice, red and black fruit, and grilled meat. It’s medium-bodied, svelte and juicy, subtle kind of wine, but no shortage of flavour in the spice and mixed berries kind of thing. Tannin is fine with an emery board quality, perfume of jasmine and stone fruit carries the finish. Stylish. Better with a few more years in bottle, I’d say." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
