Critic Reviews

DDS review

Dunno how he does it but this is just fantastic drinking. Fresh red berries, gentle wisps of tannin, a savoury spine running through the core - it's right on the money. Drinking pleasure high for the low asking price. No wonder these guys are making a name as one of the best value wineries in the Yarra. Great stuff. - Different Drop Wine Team

"You’ll likely buy it for less than the RRP listed here, which is a good thing for the consumer. Another excellent wine from the master of complexity at entry level prices, Tim Shand. Orange peel, amaro herbs, red fruit, spicy, and very savoury. It’s light, kind of juicy, but bright and complex, sappy and a little bit ‘out there’, slight smokiness, energy and crunch, and all-round deliciousness of drinking. Finish is good. Love this." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Half whole bunches to encourage carbonic maceration, half destemmed fruit. Left in tank on lees for 6 months. This is right up there as a ripper drink-now summery red. Vivacious, juicy and sappy with cherries and pips, baking spices and a flutter of smokiness. Lighter framed, some give to the tannins and refreshing acidity makes this a lip-smacking wine." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

Strict government health and safety requirements and very high parcel volumes are causing significant backlogs at the main NSW and VIC sorting facilities. Orders are still arriving safe and sound but you may notice slower delivery times and less frequent scanning updates than usual.

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 1300 668 385 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).
