Description

Young German-born Julia Weirich is a well-travelled woman in the world of wine.

After covering vintages in Burgundy at Le Grappin, Bass Phillip in Australia, and Yealands in New Zealand, Julia is now making a small amount of Barossa Valley wine, alongside the skilled and experience team of Simon Cowham and Corey Ryan at Sons of Eden.

Her goal is to craft, "Fine, modern and silken with typical Barossa varietal characters.", and she does so with great finesse.

Her GSM is right on the money, with a lovely vibrancy to the blend.

At this price, file it straight under the no-brainer territory.

Crimson red in colour, with lifted youthful redberry, cinnamon and anise spice aromas. A delicious, fleshy and rounded Grenache based wine with silky tannins and texture. A wine approachable upon release, but - like all pedigree GSM wines - has the ability to mature well for the medium to longer term.

95 Points - "A blend of 59/27/14% grenache/shiraz/mourvèdre, from Rowland Flat, Menglers Hill and Light Pass respectively. Aged in seasoned oak barrels for 10 months before blending. Plump and juicy aromatics bound forth plum jam along with red cherry and mulberry lift. Packed firmly with spice and earthen notes, a little purple floral note flitting around above. Great density, flow and plush fruit presence. Lovely drinking." - Dave Brookes (Halliday Wine Companion)

    Super balanced and affordable drop

    Great depth of Grenache and Shiraz with some Mourvedre tannin to balance things out. Delicious cherry and chocolate notes we well. Good Friday night drinking with a lamb ragu pasta.

    Surprising

    Decided to give this a go after trying a few blends lately and was pleasantly surprised. Easy drinking and improves steadily as you move beyond the first glass. Great price also.

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.
