About This Wine

A very contemporary take on Sauvignon Blanc, one amongst the landscape of new producers working very hard to change the perception of this oft abused and commercialised variety.

This is quite a complex offering here, lovely multi-faceted citrus, minerality, spice and nuts. There is a great weight to this Sauvignon Blanc, all the while, still retaining the core varietal acidity.

Farmed organically, this estate-grown wine sits easily amongst the number of exciting modern Sauvignon Blancs emerging from Canberra’s younger-gen winemakers.

About Poachers Vineyard

Poachers Vineyard is a relatively new producer on the scene, part of the Bruce family’s growing enterprise on the farm they have owned for 3 generations and over 50 years.

All their wines are produced from estate-grown fruit, off their Poachers and Wily Trout vineyard.

Managed by Will Bruce, the 2nd generation of the family, it was his passion and drive for wine that was the reason for them launching a wine label.

Forward thinking, Will farms the vineyards organically, which are now in the process for certified conversion.

Halliday Wine Companion

"Enter the new exciting world of sauvignon blanc, toned down and exploring other facets to its personality. These are exciting times for the grape, so give wines like this another look. Complexity and focus are the keywords with pink grapefruit, preserved lemon, lime and a fresh, mineral lift. Honeysuckle, juicy apple, citrus flavours at the core with a kind of kulfi ice-cream cardamon, pistachio input. Round in the middle, crunchy on the outside." Jeni Port (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
