Description

Sourced solely from the Hoffmann’s vineyards in Ebenezer, Callum Powell isn’t joking around with his fruit sources for his young Agricola label. The Hoffman family have been farming their land since the 1850’s, and their fruit is some of the most prized in the Barossa, supplying a bevy of cult producers in the region.

This wine has classic regional character; powerful, dense and full of intensity, yet showcases a lighter side of the Barossa, and still, with a powerful tannic structure.

With a fine acid-line, brightness and energy, alongside classic Ebenezer boldness and black fruit, this is a gun Shiraz for the modern consumer.

Nothing added, just a little bit of sulfur prior to bottling. Spent 12 months in oak, barriques.

Parcels generally ferment for a month or so on their skins with very little as far as cap management. It's so cold up here that the ferments tend to stay quite cool for that period, they are then basket pressed and sent to barrel. Primary and secondary ferment generally will not finish until into Spring/ Summer when the cellar begins to warm up again. Wines will rest on gross lees until being racked off for bottling.


96 Points - "Shiraz. Ebenezer. No additives. Just do their thing. Picked in a perfect window. Inky texture but fresh, lively, cool red berry fruited wine, layers of white pepper, fennel, salted liquorice and cinched with incredibly long ribbons of fine, fine tannin. Supple but builds with grip and tension, draws to amazing length and shows heaps of detail and finesse in its movement. Super drink, a heavy pinot noir, sorta, no, but in the zone. Elegance and presence." Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

Agricola

The Powell name has become synonymous with the Barossa over the past 20+ Years.

First at Torbreck, where Dave helped grow them into the powerhouse they are today, then with Powell & Son, where he and son Callum joined forces, again, quickly gaining international attention.

Yet here we are, with Callum now forging his own path with Agricola. Sourcing fruit from his family's vineyards as well as the famous Hoffmann sites, Callum is quickly stepping out of his father’s shadow.

Producing wines very much in a lo-fi way, Callum aims to express a more contemporary vision of the Barossa/Eden, with light and lithe wines that are pure, unadulterated, and without the heavy oak influence that the region is known for.

Ordering

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.
