The iconic Eldridge Gamay is one of the great cult-favourite wines of the Mornington Peninsula. Vigneron David Lloyd's vision to plant Gamay on his stunning Estate more than 20 years ago has certainly paid dividends.

It is a distinguished wine. A refined and elegant offering - berry flavours dance with oak, with a nice hit of well-balanced acidity shining through, too.

This is a touchstone for premium Gamay in Australia. One of the first and still one of the best.

Only small amounts made each year, so we recommend getting your hands on a bottle (or 2) before it's all gone.

Red Berries and spice with little dried herb and flower perfume. On the palate the blueberry flavour with a bit of raspberry is complemented by pencil shaving oak in the background. Medium bodied, wonderful depth of flavour and lithe texture, tannin is soft, but alive and kicking, cool acidity, fresher red fruits bob up on a long and pure finish.

93 Points - "As winemaker David Lloyd remained in hospital during vintage, friends picked the gamay and sent it to neighbour Tony Lee from Foxeys Hangout to kickstart the wine. In May, the single French oak barrique was sent back to Eldridge Estate and left to age another 9 months. The story, the sense of community and the wine are fabulous. A pale ruby hue; floral, red fruits, a flutter of wood spice and fennel. It's a restrained, light style with fine if reticent tannins. Delicious now. Don't wait." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

92 Points - "Sappy, savoury red shy of medium weight but with good detail. Pretty, red cherry notes, rose water, blood orange and faint, woody spice. Lithe and light, delicate and pure feeling, easy drinking style with some good shape, lift and drive. Very pleasing, fine boned drinking." - 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.

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.
