About The Wine

Top value Syrah here from Bruce Dukes.

The man has a way with Syrah from Margaret River. Where many struggle with the variety from this region, Bruce has a sensitivity to the grape and knows how to make it sing.

His latest release of his entry-level Discovery Syrah is right on point.

Silky, slinky, vibrant Syrah at a great price. This is top value from a class act winemaker.

The Real Review

"A tempting mix of charred meat, earth, spiced black plums leads into a dense palate. The tannins are fine and chewy and a touch on the exuberant side. It's powerful yet sleekly styled and hard to resist at this price." - Gabrielle Poy (The Real Review)

Halliday Wine Companion

"100% whole-berry ferment, matured in seasoned French oak for a year. Monthly bâtonnage. This year, the Rachis Syrah wasn't made, the fruit going instead to this Discovery. Pink berries and raspberry dust adorn the nose and palate. Typically spicy and plump, this is a cracking wine for the price, delivering both reliable satisfaction and something simply sexy. The fruit has a distinct beaujolais character. Gorgeous." - Erin Larkin (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
