Excellent stuff.

About The Wine

This Syrah sits in its own suave stylistic area, outside the norm of what you might expect from a producer based in and around Condrieu.

Comprised of organic Syrah grapes grown on a 15 year old vineyard in Ardèche, and raised in a mix of old oak and Tuscan amphora, this is a natural, moreish, modern expression of the variety.

The aromatics are lilting and floral, the tannins firm and smooth. It's a sexy, slinky red from a northern Rhone producer to keep an eye on.

About Slope by Thibaud Capellaro

Thibaud Capellaro is one of the most recent upstart producers based in the north of the Rhone Valley. 

Slope is his negociant project where he sources organic grapes from surrounding farmers. At his home near Condrieu, he turns these grapes into a series of colourful, vibrant wines that defy the conventions of the region.

The Slope wines are made with a hands-off philosophy. Wild yeasts, minimal sulphur, nothing else added. His is an exciting emerging project that will be one to watch over the coming years.

The Wine Front

"Medium weight, silky then purrs with silty tannins, a superstar syrah with all the great spice, game meat, red cherry fruitiness, very savoury in herb and earthy characters, then there’s a general vibrancy that draws drinkers in. The tannins are superb, shaping the wine elegant and to a fine, lingering point. It’s one for now to bask in in big glasses but will do cellar time well too. Excellent stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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).
