The Seppeltsfield Tinta Cao Tinta Amarela Touriga is a rich and bright wine inspired by the red blends of Portugal.

The blend of Tinta Cao, Tinta Amarela and Touriga offers a lovely mix of different characters, such as red fruits, savoury herbs, leather notes and fine tannins. The aromas are vibrant and lean towards florals, with lots of violets and rose. Cranberries, cherries, raspberries and blueberries give the palate luscious and fresh flavours, with the purple colour coming from the addition of Touriga.

This is a moreish wine with nice acidity that you can either drink by itself or with some rich meat dishes

Crafted to highlight floral aromatics and bright, medium-weighted complexity, Tinta Cao (40%) brings red fruit brightness and rounded tannin, Tinta Amarela (40%) a leather and dried herb complexity, and Touriga (20%) a distinctive violet perfume and inky, colour.

A modern expression of traditional Portuguese varieties, ‘No. EC3’ - the first release under this code - was grown in the Barossa, but takes inspiration from the Duoro Valley. Each variety has been grown by a generational grape growing family, their fruit contributing for many years to Seppeltsfield’s fortified wine releases. The vineyard is located in the Northern reaches of the Barossa, near Stockwell. Red varietal blends carrying an ‘EC’ (East Cellar) number were first released by Seppeltsfield’s founding family in the 1960s, their compositions of region and variety
varying on each release.

The East Cellar code itself was a unique reference to where the wines were rested and matured in oak barrels prior to release.

92 Points - "I am loving the Portguese varieties getting more of a run in the Barossa giving full-flavoured wines with a tasty bite of acidity. They are not going to age particularly long but they show another side to the Barossa while also drinking well as the more serious wines mature to hit their peak.

"This example opens up with a wide array of beautifully bright and vibrant fruits. Blueberry, boysenberry and violets with some more savoury, tarry notes in the mix too – you could quite literally bask in the beauty of this wine for hours and its ethereal aromas. Acidity then leads the charge on the palate where dark fruits with some earthy notes are supported by grainy tannins to a long and spicy finish. it’s a great little casual bistro red which you could even enjoy slightly chilled with tapas or charcuterie."

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.

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.
