About
This little thing is like eating pepperoni pizza in a freshly run bath.

About The Wine

Riley Harrison makes this seductive Adelaide Hills Syrah in the mode of a tasty, jubey Beaujolais.

The fruit, grown by Michael Downer at Murdoch Hill in Oakbank, is fermented as whole bunches, accentuating the bright blue and purple fruits and floral top notes which leap from the glass. It's juicy, bright, spicy and bouyant in personality.

If you're looking for big, ball-busting SA Shiraz, this may not be for you but if slurpy, smooth, slinky reds are your thing, then step this way.

About Harrison Wines

Riley Harrison has been making wines in South Australia for a few years now, mostly under the banner of much-loved cult label Samuel's Gorge.

With a background in viticulture but a growing love for the art of winemaking, he's a talent on the rise. "It's the complex interaction of science, creativity and environment in a bid to generate flavour, that I find intoxicating." - Riley Harrison

Harrison Wines is his pet project where he gets to tinker with some small batches of fruit from good growers around the state.

These are fresh, contemporary expressions of single varieties that put drinkability at a premium. Great packaging, great juice and great value to boot.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Spicy and floral, this Syrah leaps from the glass. Loads of plush dark berries, olive tapenade and sweet bun spice are coiled around an arrow of powdery, fine boned tannins. Decadent but refreshing, this little thing is like eating pepperoni pizza in a freshly run bath." - Riley Harrison, winemaker

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).
