About
So fresh, so well balanced, so modern and indeed so thoughtful.

About The Wine

McLaren Vale 'GSM' blends work so very well, and this wine from the good people at Jericho is a contemporary, joyous celebration of the style.

The Grenache fruit comes from two mature vineyards, one 85 years old and one 40 years old in the Blewitt Springs area - a sub-region that is home to many of the Vale's finest and most perfumed Grenache.

Owner and winemaker Neil Jericho explained to us that while the Shiraz and Mataro components definitely add something to this wine, the hero is Grenache. Juicy, jubey, delicious Grenache!

This has been one of the great go-to GSMs from this region for a few years now and this vintage certainly doesn't miss a beat.

About Jericho

Jericho is one of the most exciting emerging producers in South Australia, consistently churning out delicious, characterful and brilliantly priced wines in all styles.

Family owned and run, with experienced winemaker Neil Jericho at the helm, they source both traditional and alternative varieties from various vineyards around McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. Neil sums up the Jericho philosophy: “in every wine I like to see varietal flavour and character. I don’t want to overpower the fruit with oak. It’s got to be in balance, with nothing sticking out. They’ve got to be drinkable!”

Modern, creative and smashable wines and across the range, amazing value!

From The Producer

Blewitt Springs is the place to be for Grenache in South Australia. Partial whole bunch on the Grenache parcel results in bright red fruits, violets and spice. Structural shiraz provides the backbone for a long finish, while opulent Mourvèdre delivers a plush gamey punch.

The Wine Front

"The Jericho wines are always so well turned out. So fresh, so well balanced, so modern and indeed so thoughtful. And always so very, very drinkable. This displays jellied red/black fruits with savouriness in the treble and anise in the bass. It’s a charming drink." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

    The highlight of our dinner!

    A heavy Grenache blend, smooth, soft depth with all the berries you could imagine - oh so juicy!

    I'm a bit of a label lover and this mellow purple against the plum reminded me of our wedding flowers :)

    Great value crowd pleaser!

    I wasn't sure what to expect with this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. I've had it about 3 or 4 times now, and it's never let me down. Everybody I've opened it for has loved it. One of the liveliest GSM's I've had and unbeatable for the price. Great for a session or paired with pizza. Highly recommend!

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).
