Description

Over the past few years, it has become very clear that McLaren Vale, with all their old-vine vineyards, has become the epicentre for a new wave of Grenache releases from some of Australia’s most exciting producers.

This lovely Grenache from Living Roots is another to join the party. Fresh and alive, the wine is full of bright fruit, and subtle spice with nary a sign of oak influence in sight.

Savoury, with a delicate tannin profile, it’s easy drinking, with great flavour and complexity. McLaren Vale + Grenache, it’s really a no brainer at this point.

96 Points
"High-quality wine from start to finish; good depth to the colour, fragrant berries, flowers and spices on a bouquet that tells you there is a perfectly proportioned and composed palate, the tannins caressing the red and purple fruits."
- James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Gnarly old bush vines bring dark fruits to the blend, while the 'younger' planting [still about 60 years old] contributes more confectionary characters. Fermented wild in 1-tonne picking bins, we incorporated some carbonic maceration and whole berries for pretty aromatics, lifted fruit and a soft mouthfeel.

92 Points - "Juicy, sloshy, softer style. Ripe raspberry, some liquorice, sweet earth, a little toasty character, tobacco too. Lovely, dryer style, good sheath of tannin and general drinkability. Pleasing, approachable grenache." Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

96 Points - "Ex 2 sites separately vinified, hand picked, whole-berry fermentation. High-quality wine from start to finish; good depth to the colour, fragrant berries, flowers and spices on a bouquet that tells you there is a perfectly proportioned and composed palate, the tannins caressing the red and purple fruits." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Working with growers who share a similar philosophy, Living Roots produce an exciting range of wines from SA and NY.

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.
