About
It’s a terrific expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

About The Wine

Here's a great example of a modern Shiraz from McLaren Vale.

The fruit comes from the ‘Old Block’ at the Sherry Vineyard in Blewitt Springs planted in 1955.

This is the more savoury and lithe of the two single vineyard Shiraz wines from Wes in 2019. It's juicy and bright but with a dark and moody underbelly. And it has unmistakable x-factor.

It's a fantastic wine - loaded with personality. Ripper release from winemaker Wes Pearson.

About Dodgy Bros

What started as a small garage winemaking project for viticulturalist Peter Bolte, has grown into a full-time fun-filled winemaking gig.

With fruit secured from top growers with a handshake, Peter, along with Canadian winemaker Wes Pearson and 'grower extraordinaire' Peter Sommerville are now making tasty treats in a wide range of styles from excellent McLaren Vale sites.

The Dodgy Bros wines don't take themselves too seriously. These are adventurous and energetic wines with plenty of personality.

Additional Info

From The Producer

From the ‘Old Block’ at the Sherry Vineyard in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale planted 1955. This vineyard has been the main source of our Shiraz wines from the past 5 years, and sadly in late 2019 the property was sold so this will be the last iteration of the Sherry Vineyard Shiraz for us. Consequently, we decided that it justified bottling as its own wine, as a love letter to a vineyard that has been the backbone for our wines for a long time. Light on its feet, with vibrancy and freshness at the forefront, this wine embodies everything we have loved about this vineyard since we began sourcing fruit from it.1600 bottles produced.

The Wine Front

"So good to see McLaren Vale Shiraz increasingly turned out with no new oak employed. This is a little beauty. It’s very purple tasting, juicy and lively, all perfume and spice, along with juicy crushed berries, some meaty complexity, light grainy tannin grip, and a long bright finish. It has depth and character. Rose oil aromatics lingering. Excellent." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine companion

"From the 'old block' of the Sherry vineyard. The Blewitt Springs postcode is tattooed across the elevated florals, bouncy blue/boysenberry scents and detailed sandy tannins. Elastic tension here, the fruit reverberating as it pulls the saliva from the back of the mouth while making one hungry. Dried seaweed, olive, salami and a satchel of clove, cardamon and pepper, too. Long and energetic. Lithe and sinuous. Frisky and engaging. Fine." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

Good but richer than expected

Delicious, but I found the Halliday description didn't match well with what I was tasting

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 1300 668 385 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).
