This is excellent. Such a delicious drink, quiet complexity, a complete and easy to recognise elevation of the variety.

About The Wine

This is possibly the most interesting Verdelho in the country.

A funny variety perhaps for a winery to specialise in, but John Griffiths and his Faber vineyard has really made it their own. The unique combination of soils and climate in the Swan Valley that John's vineyard occupies produces Verdelho that ages remarkably well.

They say this might be their best vintage to date of this cult-favourite white wine.

Very much a hidden bargain of the West. If you can keep your hands off it, watch it blossom over the next 5-10 years.

The Wine Front

"Verdelho from this part of the world has few peers, when done well. Faber knows a thing or two about verdelho.  Tropical fruity but with savoury stuff underlying. Beautiful carriage of flavour in the palate, quite intense but very fresh, lightly chalky texture, faintly nutty finish. This is excellent. Such a delicious drink, quiet complexity, a complete and easy to recognise elevation of the variety." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Note to self: 'Buy this one again!'

As newbies to a Verdelho, this is truly a flavour surprise—light and yet with a complexity that you don’t expect. Note to self: 'Buy this one again!'

Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

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).
