About The Wine

Farmed using biodynamic principals, this fresh and vibrant (and aptly named) wine is farmed, picked and fermented in accordance with the cycles of the moon.

These practices make for "soils and wines which are just so much better" according to viticulturist Suzi Hilder. A blend of Cinsault and Shiraz from their own vineyard in the Barossa Valley, this wine is made with a small portion of whole-bunch, without oak and is released young to be drunk young - all the beauty of the vineyard still laid bare for all to see.

This is the perfect red for warm Spring days, and delicious drinking with a slight chill.

About Smallfry

Smallfry has been one of the secret weapons of some of the Barossa's most iconic producers for years.

The amazing array of varieties that they grow on their ancient organic and biodynamic vineyards have been coveted by the likes of Peter Schell, Taras Ochota and more recently Steve Crawford of Frederick Stevenson.

Over the last few years, owners and viticulturists Wayne Aherns and Suzi Hilder have gotten the winemaking bug and ventured out on their own. Their wines are some of the more refreshing and original styles of vino you are likely to find in this historic region.

Explore their range with an open mind, this is Barossa 2.0!

Additional Info

From The Producer

A further extension into the fresh young red space from our Joven starting point, Stella takes us to a whole new level. As our Cinsault plantings bear fruit it is a pleasure to be exploring the potential of this variety to counter the effects of climate change.

Blending with some lovely whole bunch fermented Shiraz has brought a roundness and darker fruit aspect without diminishing the vibrancy of the wine. There is a buzz around the concept of juicyness or wine that makes you salavate that is so very now and represents the current contribution to the wine lexicon that this wine fully capsulates.

DDS review

Blood plums, fresh and crunchy style. Jumps out of the glass with red skins, boiled lollies. It's so pure and elemental. Really dig this. Starts sweet finishes tart and crisp. Yum. Summery red with stacks of drinkability. - Different Drop Wine Team

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).
