About

About The Wine

This supple, stylish Syrah hails from vines planted, on average, half a century ago on the banks of the Doux River.

Vigneron Souhaut is a master of controling textures in his red wines, keeping the palate light and fresh whilst harnessing the density and power of his fruit. This is a very fine example of his prowess as a craftsman.

This presents as wonderfully aromatic with purple flowers, crushed rocks, dark forest fruits and smooth, suede tannin. It's a gorgeous, seductive representation of Syrah outside of the famed blue-chip regions of the Rhone - hence the great value on offer.

About Herve Souhaut

Hervé Souhaut is one of the most respected minimal interventionist producers in the Rhone Valley.

He started his operation in 1993 with a tiny five hectare holding of 50-100 year old vines in Northern Rhône and the southern Ardèche.

He farms his plots meticulously and organically - transmitting a sense of place with absolute clarity through his considered hands-off approach to winemaking. The wines all display a raw energy that has seen them become favourites amongst many collectors around the world.

This is the Rhone Valley re-imagined by a modern master.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

"This beauty has a most expansive and pretty profile – violets, black cherry, flowers and wet stone all billow out of the glass. The palate echoes the aroma and the tannins that gradually frame the finish are in the featherweight division and only serve to highlight the vibrant components of this lithe, fresh and captivating wine. The archetype of mountain grown Syrah - so good!" - Andrew Guard, importer

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).
