About the Wine

Balanced, elegant and delicious! The Mrs Nicks vineyard is located 9km from Western Port Bay and as such is influenced by the maritime airflow from the ocean.

The ‘Balnarring’ block was planted in 2000 on its own rootstock. It sits about 100m above sea level on a very slight south facing slope, with a fine sandy clay loam profile.

Hand picked and sorted, whole bunch press straight to barrel. Ambient yeast ferment and 7 months in seasoned oak, with no batonnage.

The Wine Front

Gris, pretty much straight up. Clean, green pear vibes, light chew but the general feel is of biting into a firm, green pear. Good puckering acidity and grip, but not over the top. Good spice characters too. Feels energetic and interesting. Feels like something I would say ‘that wine is very good’ about. So that’s that, then. - Mike Bennie

FaQs
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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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 hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
