About

About The Wine

Ben Haines is one of the country's best makers of Shiraz from the Grampians.

He mastered this variety during his time at Mount Langhi Ghiran, creating one of the country's most collectable Shiraz wines. He gets just the right amount of dark fruit, spice and the swish of ultra-fine tannin he dials in makes it perfectly moreish for any day of the week.

Fermented as 100% whole bunches, this lifted, aromatic Shiraz is savoury, complex and excellent value. For style and deliciousness, this could go toe-to-toe with any Shiraz in the country at this price point.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Described by a friend as “like walking into a florist”… wafts of rose and lavender alongside fresh herbal scents. These fragrances are complemented by deep spice and silky red and blue fruits.

What I love about this wine is the interplay between glorious aromatics and an unexpectedly savoury palate; the salty, miso, tapenade, delicatessen edge….and the streams of plush berry fruits bobbing and weaving alongside herbs and spices the whole way along the journey. All this character, coupled with the neon crunch of the acidity, and the minerality of the tannins, have been crafted in a fresh, contemporary style.

Halliday Wine Companion

"100% whole bunches, fermented wild, bottled unfined and unfiltered. It's had a lot of love and attention put into it and it shows. It presents a wide array of peppery/bunchy/herbal flavours, but it's also svelte and textural and the fruit, well, it's ripe and ready to seduce. It's a fresh, complex, well-structured wine of substance." - Cambell Mattinson (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).
