Description

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.

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.

95 Points - "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)

96 Points - "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

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.
