About The Wine

Owned by brothers Richard and Malcolm Leaske and based in McLaren Vale, Hither & Yon crafts a unique range of wines from varying sites within McLaren Vale each year.

The philosophy being to ideally match variety, vineyard and vintage and then without much intervention, let the wines truly express themselves. The types of wines they're putting forward are as exciting as the eye-catching packaging - Nero d'Avola, Tempranillo, Aglianico, Muscat Blanc and uniquely styled takes on your classic Rhone Valley and Bordeaux blends.

The Nero d'Avola is one of their most popular wines. This latest release took out 95 points with James Halliday. It's been one of the country's benchmark examples of the variety for some years now. The 2019 is right on point.

It's light, fresh and approachable nature makes it the perfect easy-drinking red. You can even give it a light chill - it's the perfect Summer red.

About Hither & Yon

Hither & Yon are Malcolm and Richard Leask, brothers from a famous winemaking family background. The brand is based in McLaren Vale, and while the mainstay varieties of Shiraz and Grenache are key, they dabble in high quality Carignan, Nero d'Avola and Touriga.

As the brothers say.."Every year, Mother Nature challenges us to a game of hide & seek ~ The fun begins as we search hither & yon through our medley of vineyards scattered high & low across McLaren Vale’s diverse majesty ~ Our quest ~ to discover that secret place each vintage, where the variety & vineyard environment have conjured something above & beyond expectations ~ Then we respect this prized fruit by allowing it to express itself, pure & natural."

Additional Info

From The Producer

The fruit was handpicked in the early morning of March 29 and delivered to the winery where it was then gently de-stemmed and crushed into open top fermenters, we aimed for 50% whole berries. A cold soak took place for 5 days, then fermentation was for 10 days, with hand
plunging taking place 3 times per day, then lightly pressed to tank where the free run juice and around 50% of the pressings were combined.

Once the wine was dry, it was sent to 4 year old French oak puncheons, for a total of 7 months only, all of the process to retain vineyard and fruit freshness. A micro screen filtration, (no fining) then bottling; completing the process on December 7, 2018 and sealed under Stelvin screw cap.

Halliday Wine Companion

"At the upper end of the scale for nero d'Avola, but it's varietal, and certain to burst into song with appropriate Italian cuisine." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

DDS review

"COLOUR: Saturated colour of bright crimson, with dark purple rim. AROMA: Blackberry, dried thyme, forest floor,black pepper. PALATE: Dark berry fruits, supple long tannins, with a savoury nip to finish. Brown earth notes and Italian herbs add complexity and structure, suggesting good ageing and food matching potential." - Hither & Yon

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.
