About The Wine

The Hell wines are a space where winemaker Greg Grigoriou can feel free to push the boundaries of his winemaking style.

With this wine he pushes the envelope of what Riverland Arinto can look like with skin contact. This is new fruit for Greg to play with so experimenting seemed like the thing to do.

This parcel of fruit hung out on skins for two weeks before pressing creating a rather serious version of an orange wine. It's grippy, spicy and very serious. It's an experiment that went very well.

About Delinquente

Greg Grigoriou's mission is simple.

He is trying to make interesting yet smashable wines from some unique fruit growing in the Riverlands. This stuff is all about fun times and chilled wines.

Bright, energetic and full of personality, these wines offer a great entry point for people looking to explore alternative varieties.

From The Producer

Arinto is a new variety to the winery this year - native to Portugal, its small berries contain delicious mix of fruit flavours, and most importantly, a piercing acidity that stands up to the hot climate of the Riverland. A really exciting time awaits with this little patch. The fruit for this wine was hand picked and immediately destemmed into one tonne open fermenters, where the wine fermented on skins until sugar dry – about 14 days. The wine was then pressed to a 1200L Slavonian oak cask, where it rested on full solids for 8 months, before being racked once prior to bottling. This wine sees no additions of any kind save for a small amount of SO2 at bottling.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"A true orange wine, this is all about layers, complexity and energy. Citrus and stonefruit characters come forward, but the savoury backbone, tannin and ripping acidity give so much depth and structure to the wine. The Slavonian cask helps bring the wine together, the oak character complementing and balancing the intensity of the wine. Despite all this highwire stuff, the wine is eminently drinkable, and soars with hearty Mediterranean influenced food." - Greg Grigoriou

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).
