About This Wine

From one of the premier Hunter Valley vineyards in Pokolbin, this is a fantastic expression of Shiraz, a true showcase of a regional classic.

Definitively medium-bodied, there is a dark core of fruit running through this Shiraz, with moreish chocolaty undertones peeking through this velvety smooth wine.

Rich, and intensely flavoured, there is length for days, so much joy in the mouth from the flavours to the texture, it’s supple and joyous. Hunter Valley Shiraz in all its glory.

About Comyns & Co.

Comyns & Co. is the exciting new label of highly awarded young Hunter Valley winemaker, Scott Comyns, and his wife Missy.

After years of plying his trade with bigger Hunter producers, Scotty made the bold move to go out on his own and create wines that he loves.

“It’s the Hunter Valley that I wanted to see", Scotty explains. "Young, fun, edgy - we want something different that stands out”.

The wines are very well made, fun to drink and provide a great alternative to more traditional Hunter Valley fare.

Mark our words, Scotty Comyns is a name to watch!

Halliday Wine Companion

"Sourced from the Shed Block within the prized Pokolbin Estate vineyard. A classy wine; richer, more intense of flavour and considerably longer than the Estate Shiraz. Floral, with ample iodine and charcuterie scents. A bridge of reduction across the mid palate imparts welcome tension. Nicely played. Pepper, clove and cardamom skitter across a long finish." Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Real Review

"Deep red colour with a good purple tint and a reserved bouquet of mixed spices and a hint of charred oak. There are intense red-fruit flavours deep in the palate, fruit-sweet in the centre and refreshed by clean acidity towards the finish. A really elegant wine with bright red and darker fruit flavours, fine supple tannins and lovely drinkability." Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

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).
