About The Wine

One for the Grenache lover with a penchant for the prettier side of the variety.

The fruit from this 60+ year-old vineyard in McLaren Vale has been carefully guided by winemaking husband and wife team Luke Growden and Caleigh Hunt into a lovely, delicate yet intriguing style of Grenache.

With a judicious amount of whole bunch and a focus on fruit rather than oak, this is a vibrant expression that is impossible to stop drinking. As with all of Luke and Caleigh's wines, this was only a tiny production.

It's a bright, perky, delicious example of McLaren Vale Grenache.

About Year Wines

This dynamic couple were named as the Best New Act at the 2015 Young Guns of Wine Awards.

The story of Year Wines is one of love and family, of serendipity and opportunity. When Luke met Caleigh whilst working as a lowly cellar hand, it was love at first sight. Eight years, two kids and a mortgage later and they are producing some gorgeous small-batch wines together from McLaren Vale.

Their wines are made in minuscule quantities, often no more than 30 dozen at a time, and their raw quality and undeniable personality make them very highly sought-after.

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).
