Here's a ripe, bold Viognier from Tom and Sally at Bobar wines.

This is no shy rendition of the variety - it's lively, has plenty of fruit, and excellent attack in the mouth.

Getting out of the way and allowing the fruit to express itself in the bottle is the Bobar MO.

That approach has worked a treat here with this much-loved variety.

Grown at the base of the Christmas Hills to the west of Yarra Glen, the Homestead vineyard has an expansive easterly exposure with a degree of protection from the westerly heat and hot northerly winds. This little subregion allows for the full and rich expression of the Yarra Valley floor with a restraint that the more exposed hillsides don’t afford.

The whole bunches were picked directly to small open fermenters in the vineyard with a small amount crushed by foot on the bottom and left for a 7 day whole bunch maceration. Pressing to old 500L oak puncheons followed for ferments and maturation throughout winter. Carefully racked and bottled in November 2020 for a further six months maturation before release.

Super lean & fresh. Waxy, loads of energy

94 Points - "Carbonic maceration for ten days, from a site in Yarra Glen. Nice one. For someone who drinks only one viognier a year, I’ve tasted three in a week, which is making me edgy.

Scents of fresh stone fruits, apricot, yep, coconut, some lemon balm and ginger. Really nice whiffs. Slippery texture but way, way fresh and clean, some green herbs, tonic water, licks of oatmeal. Really pleasing. Really lovely. Gentle, quietly complex. Delicious." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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.


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.
