2019 La Caputxeta Parellada

Priorat, Spain

Bracing Spanish white made by the Aussies at Payten and Jones! It's Parellada from Priorat, and it's delicioius.



About The Wine

The boys from the Yarra with a collab wine made in the beautiful village of Gratallops in the centre of Priorat.

Paralleda is the grape, which due to its naturally high acidity is mostly used as a base for Cava production. This expression is zesty, floral and super tangy, and is made with no additions. The colour is goldeny but it is bright and crunchy.

La Caputxeta is Red-Riding Hood, who is on the label. Gratallops translates as 'the place where wolves sharpen their claws.' So there's a theme!

About Payten & Jones

Payten and Jones could be an English TV comedy duo but they are in fact a Yarra-based winemaking due who make hilariously great value wines.

Behn Payten and Troy Jones are Yarra locals, graduates of Healesville high, and were destined to make wine together from an early age.

They make off-beat, soulful wines across a range of styles, varieties and labels.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Our collaboration winery is located in the Priorat region, in a village called "Gratallops" or literally the place where Wolves Sharpen their Claws. We thought it’d be cool to play with that and make any wine that comes from outside Priorat the ‘Red Riding Hood’ wines – hopefully they won’t be better than the Wolf though!

Pressed and fermented without skins – more classically made in stainless steel to promote minerality.

Aromas of phosphorous, fennel and green apple. On the palate, citrus, minerality and a vibrant, lively finish. Drink chilled with fresh oysters.

Blend : Parellada (100%)

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 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).
