Description

The Symphony is the finest, richest, most powerful Shiraz from the middle section of the Marius vineyard in McLaren Vale.

This wine shows imperious strength. It's the kind of wine that booms out across the room thumping its fist, loudly proclaiming its place of origin. The rare red gravels on the Marius vineyard impart a quality to the grapes like no other site in Australia. Owner/proprietor Roger Pike does is coaxes this individual character into the glass with a deft touch.

If you want a wine that is going to look brilliant in 20+ years, this remarkable wine should be on your list for a number of reasons - not least of which is the incredible value it offers.

It is fairly simple.

To grow the best possible grapes in our vineyard and make the best possible wines from those grapes. Wines of integrity that showcase the character of our Shiraz and Mourvedre and our unique terroir. To let the vineyard speak.

Then to offer those wines at a price which represents outstanding value for money.

Finally, to bring a smile to your face when you taste them.

- Roger Pike

95 Points - "’ve tasted maybe 20 years worth of Marius Shiraz, and I like to think, in a very simple kind of way, that Marius and The Wine Front have been intertwined for near a similar amount of time. Roger did the hard work, we did the easy job of tasting the fruits of his labour. Seems like a fair deal. I sit here in my ivory tower, while he did all the hard graft, pruning in winter, picking in the heat of summer, making wine in a small shed in Willunga, pushing out some of the best McLaren Vale Shiraz in recent memory. It’s kind of humbling, not least for a man of egregious ego such as myself. Anyway, here’s the last wine to come from this special vineyard.

Ripe red fruits, a supple raspberry richness, cocoa and a little mint, a sweet earthy perfume. Plush, enveloping texture of melting cocoa, a lick of vanilla, but earthy sooty tannin pushes it long, boysenberry, a smattering of sweet dried herb, freshness, ironstone ‘mineral’ character, and a lavish finish of fine perfume and superb length. Great wine. An aria, leaving on a high note." Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Ordering

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.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

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.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
