About

About the Wine

Some of the best drinking Barossa/ Eden Grenache imaginable - the value is just an added bonus.

Booming red fruit aromatics lead to a soft, layered, slow burn of a palate, with a herbal, floral finish.

About Sparrow and Vine

Sparrow & Vine is the ongoing winemaking baby of industry legend Brendan Hilferty. The first vintage was 2010 and it has always been based on fruit from the Doecke vineyard, on Gawler Park Rd in the Eden Valley sub region of the Barossa.

The Eden Valley is higher and cooler than the Barossa floor and the fruit ripens later, with ensuing wines offering notes of spice and fresh red fruit flavours - the wines are soft and accessible and with cooler region sense of vibrancy. Most of all they have drinkability.

Additional Info

From The Producer

2020 was another very dry vintage so the super low yields from our usual source, the Doecke Eden Valley vineyard, were topped up with a Grenache from the organic and biodynamic farmed Ahrens vineyard at Vine Vale. Grapes were picked on March 6th, the same as in 2019.

As with other years the grapes were hand picked and hand sorted through the crusher/ destemmer with some bunches left whole to add some structure and complexity. The natural yeasts were then left to do their thing. It was pressed out to tanks to settle and then older french oak barrels for aging. There are more Barossa than Eden Valley grapes in the mix this year but the telltale spice and raspberry notes of that Eden Valley fruit seem to shine again. Maybe some extra structure from the valley floor grapes but still the balance of bright, juicy red fruits with concentration, length and approachability other vintages have delivered.

The Wine Front

This year it is one third Eden Valley and two thirds of old vine grenache off Smallfry biodynamic fruit. Slippery textured, bright black and red berry fruits, herbal notes, light fennel and liquorice notes, Chinese five spice in the mix. Slips over the palate well, ribbons of building tannin delivering structure and tension, excellent length. A beautiful, fine grenache wine. - Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
