Description

Baw Baw Shire is an lovely playful-sounding name but this wonderful white wine is a contender for Australia's most serious SBS blend.

Whites that are aged in barrel on full lees can often be overpoweringly yeasty or toasty but Ryan Ponsford's latest release is beautifully integrated with old-vine fruit intensity still shining through, crystalline and pure.

Citrus, stonefruit, garden herbs and a whisper of tobacco are all present and correct, along with a penetrating, high-tone finish. Just a classy wine.

Sauvignon Blanc - Sémillon blend from the wild dog vineyard in Baw Baw Shire. Forty year old, dry grown, own rooted vineyard that is organically farmed.


Rich, complex, vibrant, powerful wine with heaps of acidity. Barrel fermented and aged on full lees. Really proud of this one, super delicious and textural. Excited to be farming this block going forward. The label depicts the critically endangered Warragul burrowing Crayfish, with a distribution of only 20 square kms around Baw Baw Shire.

94 Points - "From Wild Dog Vineyard in Baw Baw Shire, Gippsland. Forty year old vines. A barrel fermented number that hangs out on lees. Serious feeling wine.

Crystal clear flavours of light, young stone fruit, grapefruit and fennel. Very tightly wound, precise and energetic, the wine races across the palate in a pent up coil of detailed fresh and yet gently savoury white wine pleasure. The wine just got better and better with time, revealing extra nuances of savoury, yeasty character woven seamlessly into the body of the wine. A faint smokiness lingers in each sip, but by-the-by in the overall impact of the wine. Really good drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Entropy

Ryan Ponsford started his wine adventure with a pivotal bottle of additive-free Pinot Noir made by cult wine figure Bill Downie.

Not long after, Ryan found himself in Bill's vineyard, pruning, plucking, tending the vines and taking notes from Bill and his farming partner Pat Sullivan.

It wasn't long before Ryan jumped in boots and all and started his own label made with the same philosophy as the wines of Pat and Bill. Now he's bought a patch of dirt in Gippsland and is putting vines in the ground.

His journey is just at the beginning, but the DNA of what Ryan is planning is well and truly on the right track. Watch this space, there is plenty more in store for the 2022 Young Gun of Wine!

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.
