Little Poppet, named for Ryan's niece, is a blend of Semillon and Chardonnay - the former coming from Walsh's family vineyard in Osmington (east of the main Margaret River drag and on sandy-clay soils with cooler nights) and the latter from a family vineyard in Burnside (just 2km from the ocean).

The Semillon goes straight to stainless while the Chard sees some older French oak. The ferment is all-natural and the finished product is unfined and unfiltered. It's a quirky, funky, lively thing, and one of those wines that nicely strikes the balance between interest and drinkability.

So good to see some more creative Margaret River wines like this! Just a small amount of Little Poppet is made each year, and really great value for a quality Margaret River wine with such a unique personality.


We have blended Semillon and Chardonnay for the intrigue. Our wines are designed to have edgy bits because we think its these differences that define us. To that end it’s not fined or filtered. We choose family names from our younger generation because its only right that wine with personalities have a name to match. This wine has natural acid backbone, pure blue eyes and dry almost red tannins from a bit of good oak.


I have Semillon from sandy clay soils in east Margaret River in a locality known as Osmington. It is eastern Margaret River and with cooler nights given it’s slightly further inland. My old man runs it and loves it. Planted in 1998, it borders the coal seam that runs from Dunsborough to Augusta making the soils slighter in structure but higher in aromatics particularly sulfides. Rows run east west on a slight north facing slope.

Freya is a Chardophile with Chardonnay from a family property set on the Margaret river itself in a locality called Burnside. Planted in 1981 by her father David on a bend in the river (Burnside means – one who lives on the bended side of a river) its unique micaceous black soils are only 2km from where the river meets the ocean. The Chardonnay rows are on a steep northerly aspect with rows running in a north-west, south-east orientation.

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.

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.
