Powerful, a little rugged with it, but engaging all the same.

About This Wine

From the first certified organic vineyard in Montsant, Spain, the Selenita Negre is a structured and savoury blend of Garnaxta (don’t you love how each region of Spain spells Grenache in a unique way), and Syrah.

Quite classical in style, this is very much a richer expression of Grenache, yet there is a seriousness to it, with fantastically elegant structure, and depth.

This wine is full of spice, blue fruits and wicked perfume, all wrapped up in a frame that balances tannin and acid in a beautiful manner.

 

About Dit Celler

Dit Celler is one part of the unique wine co-op, that is Azul Y Garanza (AyG). Three winemakers, producing wines from 4 regions in Spain; Jumilla, Navarra, Penedes, and these, from Montsant.

From the first organically certified vineyard in the region, the fruit grows in the Sierra de Llaberia Natural Park, off vines aged between 25-70 years.

Dani Nogue Sanchez, one of the 3 winemakers in this co-op, started his wine journey here in the region, and as such, Dit Celler is a special project for him; the wines, and vineyard, are very close to his heart.

The Wine Front

"Rich smelling wine, all cocoa, liquorice and black fruit, with a dusting of spice. Lush flavour, ripe raspberry, dark chocolate and spice, with a bit of stony feel to tannin, some warmth, but keeps kind of fresh, the finish strewn with dried herb and some bitterness, a cocoa powder texture to close. Powerful, a little rugged with it, but engaging all the same." - 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).
