About the Wine

Stepping into the realm of hip new (old) wine styles, the Shaw + Smith team have blended up their own version of Adelaide Hills Shiraz, with an added little splash of Pinot Noir.

This blend works wonderfully in the Adelaide Hills - the naturally spicy Shiraz of the region finds its perfect foil in the sweetly fruited, floral Hills Pinot Noir.

While the S+S wines are made in a serious, cellaring style, this is meant to be opened and enjoyed immediately.

A 'nouveau' red that's a great addition to this vibrant label.

If you're feeling in the mood or the weather is particularly warm, a light chill on this wine won't hurt one bit.

About The Other Wine Co.

The Other Wine Co. is the brainchild of Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith, the team behind Shaw + Smith Wines.

The young winemaking team behind The Other Wine Co., spearheaded by Matt Large, always have their focus on drinkability and deliciousness. They make fantastic, pure wines with a twist.

Producing their wines at Shaw + Smith, The Other Wine Co. is a bit more experimental with their winemaking. They're always on the lookout for something new, and they're thirsty to push the boundaries.

Additional Info

From the Producer

We’ve taken Grenache to a light, fragrant and vibrant place, and our Pinot Gris has stone fruit and freshness that get along perfectly. When it came to our third wine, we wanted something with more body, that didn’t lose freshness or vibrancy. Adelaide Hills Shiraz offers medium weight with perfume, spice and bright fruits. Perfect, but we needed extra acid freshness and aromatics to keep it well in the bright, vibrant zone. So we added Pinot Noir, also Adelaide Hills. And that’s it, a little richer than the others, and delicious, and ready. Santé!

Halliday Wine Companion

"From an Adelaide Hills vineyard outside Shaw + Smith's usual remit, this time from the Echunga district, vinified in neutral concrete vats using a mix of whole berries and 15% whole bunches. A lighter-bodied style, redolent with bright plum fruit, offset with a subtle background of wood and stems, underpinned by a gentle spice and earthiness. Quite delicious and immensely drinkable." - Tony Love (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
