The Indie Xisto Tinto hails from a single vineyard in the Alijó region.

At 580m altitude, this site is home to a smorgasbord of local varieties that were planted over 70 years ago. They've grown together, they blend beautifully together into the freshest, most energetic and red-fruited of Seabra's excellent reds.

A pop of rosy perfume set against a brooding sea of blue and black fruit with black pepper and violet notes adding accents and highlights.

This is a limited allocation wine, so snap one up while you still can.

70 year old vineyard at 580m in Alijó, planted on blue schist soil (hence much less clay). Sustainably farmed single vineyard planted since 1950. Tended in blue schist soil at 510 (1,673 ft.) elevation. It is a deeper hue than Ilimitado, with a very fresh, but succulent, fleshy palate with very fine tannins and lovely palate-pervasive, inky florals. Persistent, with delicious fluidity/juice. The grapes were foot-trodden (100% whole bunch) in granite lagares and naturally fermented, with very little extraction (total maceration of 10 days where, says Seabra, "using whole bunch is useful, because it forces me not to extract too much)." Nothing was added to the wine but sulphur. It was aged for 22 months in French oak barriques.

93 Points - "Ultra rosy red wine, shy of medium weight, crisp with tannins and imbued with red berry, white pepper, salted liquorice and fennel characters. The palate is taut and very fresh feeling, there's a little sloshy, supple depth but it's all kept tightly bound in that mesh of lacy tannin. Extends well, finishes bright and, again, peppery, or even juniper-like. There's a flighty botanical edge to the wine that is appealing. Such a lovely drink." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

93 Points - "Deep, bright red-purple colour, the bouquet fresh and bold with black-cherry and blackberry aromas, a suggestion of cassis, vanilla and coffee grounds too, the palate full-bodied and firm with lashings of tannin which provides a solid backbone. It has the intensity of flavour to match the structure. A solid wine that would reward substantial cellaring. Long and authoritative. Impressive stuff." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.
