The Hill 5 Shiraz Cabernet is a fresh take on the classic Aussie blend.

The Shiraz is sourced from Hill 5 at Sevenhill and the Cabernet from a small vineyard at Watervale. Fermented separately and in small open fermenters for a period of 11 days, the wine is then pressed off skins to a mixture of new and older French oak barriques with the idea of letting the fruit be the hero of the wine.

A deep-coloured wine showing hallmark plums, blackcurrant and creme de cassis/mint along with baked earth and dried herbs, this is evocatively Clare. The palate is medium-to-full bodied with a wonderful richness and depth of flavour all framed by soft, dusty tannins.

Lovely structure and elegance here backed by a long and satisfying finish.

The Naked Run Hill 5 is a traditional Australian blend of two premium red varieties Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the Clare Valley. The Shiraz portion is sourced from Hill 5 at Sevenhill and the Cabernet from a small vineyard at Watervale. Small parcels are fermented in open fermenters with a portion of this wine undertaking natural ferment. The wine is fermented for 11 days on skins then pressed to new and older French oak barriques. After 20 months of maturation, the wine is bottled.

The Hill 5 Shiraz Cabernet is a vibrant deep cherry red colour. It shows lifted dark fruit, spice, chocolate, and jube aromas on the nose. The palate is rich and full bodied, with great weight and length. Roasted meat and chocolate characters dominate, balanced well with charry, spicy oak and pleasant soft dusty tannins on the finish. This is an elegant wine with nice balance and structure.

95 Points - "The varieties are fermented separately with wild yeast before spending about 5 months in old French oak, blended then bottled early. Apparently the aim of this wine is to let the fruit be the hero. Well that has been achieved. It is so delicious and lively, with red plums, blackberries, currants and a flutter of baking spices. It's juicy, medium bodied, with textural tannins and enjoyment stamped all over it. Oh, and a bargain too!" - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

93 Points - "Deepish red colour with a glint of purple remaining. The bouquet is reserved and cabernet-driven, with lots of dried herb, blackcurrant and crème de cassis notes. A very Clare style, with a little grittiness in the tannins and some subtle herbaceous notes. It's full-bodied and firm and appears to have plenty of potential." - 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.

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.
