If you are looking for a rich, luscious Shiraz, best keep walking.

This is a super-light, crunchy version of Syrah, bordering on Rosé in terms of body and colour

It's as light and breezy as a red wine gets. Just picture Spring afternoons, a chilled bottle from the esky, cricket in the park and a tumbler full of this delightful ruby/pink juice in your tumbler.

No additions as usual.

Another totally loveable offering from Bobar!

Shiraz from Dixons Creek to the north of Yarra Glen in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, its extra altitude and gentle south facing slope lending restraint and purity was blended with a healthy dose of Viognier from the slopes to the west of Yarra Glen. A more expansive easterly slope with full sun exposure allows more silky ripeness to develop in the Viognier.

Both Shiraz and Viognier were picked the same day, the partly crushed whole bunches of Shiraz covered with whole bunches of uncrushed Viognier. After a week’s carbonic maceration it was crushed thoroughly by foot and allowed to ferment vigorously for 48 hours before pressing and transfer to older oak hogsheads for the completion of fermentation and maturation until spring. It was blended and bottled in November 2020 and matured in bottle for a further six months.

This super light red is rhubarb danish on the nose, deliciously savoury in the mouth. .

93 Points - "Shiraz is from Dixon’s Creek is the homebase for this wine, the Viognier is outta Yarra Glen. “Generous amount of viognier” goes in, and crushed shiraz goes on top. Foot stomped a bit later to mix it up and co-ferment a bit more.

Crisp and racy red of high sense of freshness and purity. Rips along the palate with light lactic creaminess then a Campari-like tang rumbles through. It’s such a vibrant, appealing, pretty red wine. So thirst-quenching too. Frisky number with plenty of fine detail." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Amazing light juicy summer red!

    Have to decant it for 1 hour and chill it.

    It is bit bubbly initially but with 1 hr decanting it becomes smooth light juicy red that’s very fruity, with starwberry hue …. And very pretty colour! Highly recommmend it!

    My favourite wine

    Such a light easy drinking red- with after tastes of cotton candy. I need to stock my cupboards with more of this.

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.
