Description

Le Sol is the flagship Syrah from NZ juggernaut, Craggy Range.

This is the Rolls Royce of NZ Syrah. A powerful wine with awesome intensity, but with all the class and polish you would expect from this iconic estate.

The Gimblett Gravels sub-region of Hawkes Bay is ground zero for the country's finest Syrah and this sits at the top of the pile. It's a flawless release.

Give it a decade in the cellar to see it in full flight.

Le Sol (french: the soil) is born of the renowned Gimblett Gravels viticultural appellation with its gravelly soils attracting the sun in summer and insulating the vines in winter.

The vines are planted in the stoniest parts of the vineyard to a heritage clone of Syrah brought to New Zealand in the 1840s.

99 Points - "Dense, intense and complex syrah that combines power and finesse. A deep, dark wine with a heady perfume and dark berry, plum, violet and pepper-spice flavours. Clearly a wine worth cellaring, although it is deliciously drinkable now." - Bob Campbell (The Real Review)

95 Points - "A very impressive and impactful expression of syrah from the cooler climes of Hawke's Bay, this offers red plum and blackberry, as well as pepper, violets, dry spices and stones. Very fragrant and complex. The palate is intense, with real purpose and direction to the clean-cut tannins. Long, pure darker-berry flavors abound. On form. Drink over the next eight years. Screw cap." - James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com)

97 Points - "<span data-sheets-value="{&quot;1&quot;:2,&quot;2&quot;:&quot;Very deep, bright, youthful purple/red colour, the nose smoky, earthy, spicy and meaty-charcuterie. The palate is rich and full-bodied, soft-textured and loaded with fleshy extract. The wine is lovely and full, supple, rounded, with an extra degree of concentration. There's a reductive note which breathes off with airing. Intense, elegant and powerful, but also long and satisfying.&quot;}" data-sheets-userformat="{&quot;2&quot;:14337,&quot;3&quot;:{&quot;1&quot;:0,&quot;3&quot;:1},&quot;14&quot;:{&quot;1&quot;:3,&quot;3&quot;:1},&quot;15&quot;:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;16&quot;:11}">Very deep, bright, youthful purple/red colour, the nose smoky, earthy, spicy and meaty-charcuterie.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
