Predominantly Chenin Blanc this stunningly vibrant white sings with mouth-watering acidity cleverly layered with slatey minerality, pear skin grip and a touch of honeyed richness. It's complex, mineral, fragrant, refreshing, and supple, everything you could wish for in a white wine.

Malgas is a largely undiscovered corner of South Africa but Charla Haasbroek is certainly making her mark, this is a great example of her talent and a wine that we would urge anyone with an interest in the great wine stories of the world to try.

A beautiful limpid gold colour in your glass. Caramelised pineapple, stony, savoury nose. A rich and full bodied flavour profile. A vibrant palate of honey and salted liquorice, peach pith, apple and pear skins and slate. Lovely minerality, enhancing the freshness and acidity of the wine. A good tannin structure coming from the slight skin contact. Hints of fennel and rosemary linger in the glass.

94 Points - "From Malgas, where Sijnn is currently the only producer as the region is newly established. Vines planted in 2007 to kick things off. It's located on the Cape, about 200 kilometres east of Cape Town and a bit inland on the Malgas River. Chenin, and a bit of viognier and verdelho. Organic farmed.Beautiful aromas, wild honey kind of scents, a bit of oyster shell, some fennel, jasmine, sweet citrus. Really pretty but rich and fresh scent. Limey and fresh to taste, distinctly saline, ripe apple notes, faintly cashew nut savoury and piercing in its racy acidity and general sense of freshness. Layers of flavour, texture, detail. Wonderful expression."- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

94 Points - "Unfiltered and unfined, this Chenin-led blend (with 14% Viognier, 2% Roussanne) takes you to its rocky vineyard home. Abundant aromas of fynbos, acacia blossom, sun-baked stones, yellow apples, peaches and salted lemon. The layered palate shows caramel richness, skin-contact grip and a pithy freshness that sculpts around honeyed pears, nougat and baked pineapple. An intense, salty mineral finish."- Malu Lambert (Decanter Magazine)

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.
