About The Wine

Margaret River has a reputation for serious, cellar-worthy red wines so it's great to see a more playful side of the region from South by Southwest duo, Mijan Patterson and Livia Maiorana.

This Sangiovese is picked while the fruit is fresh and bright, leading to a juicier expression of the variety than the more savoury and structured red wines it's famous for in Italy.

It's the kind of red that's down for a good time, not a long time. It'll even take a chill if you're in that sort of mood.

About South by Southwest

Founded by two wine adventurers, Mijan Patterson and Livia Maiorana, South by South West is a contemporary, meandering négociant working in an age-old profession.

In addition to their own organically farmed Wallcliffe vineyard, fruit is sourced independently from a loyal network of pioneering growers - the results are small batches of unique and ever-changing styles, varietals, and blends that highlight the charm of the south west region.

From The Producer

As with our previous vintage, the challenge to test the norm for expected varietals grown within the Margaret River region inspired us to make the 2020 Sangiovese – that combined of course with our love for Italian varietals and wine and our time spent amongst the vines in Tuscany, Italy. With the 2020 Sangiovese we wanted to continue to showcase a fruit forward wine with natural acidity and food focus but add a little more structure to it and extract a little more tannin focus.

Our 2020 Sangiovese is a superb fruit-driven mouth-feel wine, balanced by beautiful tannins you would expect from the Italian varietal and tangy acid. A hint of clove, cherry and spicy plum reaches the mid palate and finishes with a comfortable amount of tannin grip. This is a rare expression of Margaret River fruit, resulting in a juicy, playful and structured wine.

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).
