Sangiovese takes a trip to value town - succulent mid-weight red with a lick of tannin.

About The Wine

Sangiovese is now a mover and shaker in the Canberra region, which tends to have a lot of those. The Linear Sangio is much more pleasant to deal with, with tangy red fruit, some palate richness and a good, savoury tannic finale.

The fruit is sourced from two sites in the cool Canberra hills, is wild fermented, then aged in french oak for 11 months, with some whole bunch usage..

Good weekend drinking, but an excellent, flavoursome weekday tipple.

About Linear Wines

Ex-restaurateur Nathan Brown set up Linear in 2018 with a couple of small-batch Canberra releases. After escaping hospitality and enrolling in wine science at Charles Sturt Uni, a vintage at Collector Wines in 2017 evolved into a full-time roll with Alex McKay. From 2021 Nathan has turned his full attention to the development of Linear Wines.

Current and future releases will focus on small vineyard plots from around Canberra and NSW with an emphasis on emerging varietals. Look out for Gundagai Fiano, Pinot from Tumbarumba and Canberra Tempranillo and Sangiovese.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Sangiovese is grown on granite and shale soil over two sites in the Canberra District. The vines are tended by hand, Sangiovese generally throws bountiful crops so hand thinning was required to ensure we had a well-balanced crop.

Lively red fruits with juicy characters, rich and complex palate completed with earthy tones, finished with indulgent savoury tannins

Blend : Sangiovese (100%)
Drink Until : 2026

DDS review

Good, satisfying earthy Sangiovese with a brisk backbone of acidity. Did well to avoid making a linear pun here, so will reward myself with another glass. - DD Wine Crew

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 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).
