About The Wine

Dan Graham's wines are non-conformist. Take his interesting twist on a GSM, convention making way for creativity.

The fruit sources for the Sigurd Red is an equal split between multiple parcels from the Barossa Valley. The blend is made up of predominantly Carignan, supported by Syrah, Malbec and pinch of Grenache.

It's vibrant, plush, full-flavoured, dark and meaty - the whole Barossa package, modern and traditional.

About Sigurd

Named for his grandfather who emigrated to Australia in the early 20th century, Sigurd winemaker Dan Graham is a second generation vigneron who started his own label in 2012, while working for one of the larger names in the Barossa Valley.

Dan's style is to make wines that he likes to drink and share with friends. All wines are fermented utilising natural yeasts, no fining and zero additions besides a small amount of sulphur before going to bottle..

From getting tiny quantities of contra fruit for his subversive and semi-secret (from his employer) first vintage back in 2012, Dan now sources fruit from growers across South Australia, and his range of wines has grown exponentially year on year.

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 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 hello@differentdrop.com 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).
