About

About the Wine

With its strikingly fragrant expressions of Shiraz, Clonakilla put the Canberra District on the map. Time has only proven this speciality to be a true classic of the region.

At a fraction of the price of their benchmark Shiraz Viognier, the O’Riada bottling is always impressive. Elegant and supple, it smoulders with dark berry fruit, sourced from estate vineyards and other trusted growers in Hall and Murrumbateman.

It's a bottle you can tuck into often, without feeling you've overreached into your cellar.

About Clonakilla

Clonakilla is one of the true icons of the Australian wine scene. Since its inception, it has been one of the leading lights of the Australian cool climate wine insurgence.

They boast one of the most collectable wines in the country in their Shiraz Viognier, a wine of outstanding quality and consistancy over the last two decades.

Whether Shiraz, Riesling or otherwise, every wine in the Clonakilla stable are considered amongst the benchmark examples in Canberra District.

Quite simply, Tim Kirk and his family-owned estate are one of the true gems in the Australian wine industry crown.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The O’Riada is a quintessential Canberra Shiraz, brilliantly opulent in 2019, charged with spice, floral notes and ripe dark berry fruit.

A warm growing season followed a dryer than average winter. Yields were 20% down, but what we lost in volume we gained in intensity.

77mm of rain in January and 32mm in February were a timely blessing.

Blend : Shiraz
ABV : 14.00%

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

Blackberry, pepper and spice, orange peel and hazelnuts. Medium-bodied, distinctly nutty and slightly meaty, peanuts and new leather, fine grained husky tannin, slight warmth, running to red and black fruit on a long and meaty finish. Characterful. Lovely wine. - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

94Points
James Suckling

A beautifully fresh and sapid style that has plenty of fresh-ground spice and cracked pepper, across violets, blackcurrants, blackberries and dark plums. The palate adds a little espresso to this array of dark berries and spice. The tannins are smoothly layered and carry a smooth, fleshy finish. Drink or hold. - Nick Stock (James Suckling)

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).
