Wes Pearson is on an insane hot-streak at the moment, cranking out some exceptional modern expressions of McLaren Vale - at a great price, too.

The fruit for this wine hails from the Wait Vineyard in Blewitt Springs - specifically, the old vines of the Sandy Corner Block. It stands as a loving ode to the vineyard from which it comes, and it's a cracker one at that.

Dark, complex, concentrated, graceful - just some of the words words you could use to describe this classic McLaren Vale Shiraz.

From the Wait family Vineyard in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. This wine comes from the ‘Sandy Corner Block’, planted in 1966. It neighbours the old Grenache block found in our Old Vine Grenache (planted 1943). We felt that this wine was so unique in its expression of Shiraz that it deserved to be bottled as a stand alone wine, as a homage to the vineyard. It was matured for 18 months in old French oak barriques and hogsheads, and It was not fined or filtered. This wine will reward those with patience as it will develop gracefully over the next decade, but is also approachable in its youth with bright, fresh fruit flavours.

Region: McLaren Vale, SA
Blend: Shiraz (100%)
Closure: 750ml
Bottle Size:

95 Points - "A site planted in 1943, this is the marrow of Blewitt Springs: lilac, energy and a sandy skein of tannins melded to crunchy, saline, peppery freshness. Medium rather than heavy of feel. Destemming, crushing and maturation in old Hungarian hogsheads serve as a platform for a beatific shiraz that already drinks beautifully. Even if twice as expensive, it would still represent good value." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

    Great expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz

    Most striking thing about this was the intense perfume (violets so much so) the moment I cracked open the bottle. Good fruit weight and tannin profile make this a great value option and imo outshines a bunch of the regional heavyweights in the process too

    A beautiful McLaren Vale Shiraz

    Old vine fruit really shows in this wine. Rich, velvety, so well balanced and seamless. Ripe black and blue fruits, violets, black pepper, mocha and espresso. Loved it.

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.
