About The Wine

Here's a ripe, bold Viognier from Tom and Sally at Bobar wines.

This is no shy rendition of the variety - it's lively, has plenty of fruit, and excellent attack in the mouth. Full of soul and energy.

Getting out of the way and allowing the fruit to express itself in the bottle is the Bobar MO. That approach has certainly worked a treat here with this much-loved variety.

About Bobar Wines

Tom and Sally Belford are pioneers of the natural wine movement in the Yarra Valley.

Using fruit from their own vineyards and selected sites from across the valley, their gentle, lo-fi wines have developed quite a cult following.

They are known for their savoury expressions of Syrah, Viognier and Chardonnay.

These are lovely people crafting idyllic wines. The Yarra Valley presented with minimal intervention.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Grown at the base of the Christmas Hills to the west of Yarra Glen, the Homestead vineyard has an expansive easterly exposure with a degree of protection from the westerly heat and hot northerly winds. This little subregion allows for the full and rich expression of the Yarra Valley floor with a restraint that the more exposed hillsides don’t afford.

The whole bunches were picked directly to small open fermenters in the vineyard with a small amount crushed by foot on the bottom and left for a 7 day whole bunch maceration. Pressing to old 500L oak puncheons followed for ferments and maturation throughout winter. Carefully racked and bottled for a further six months maturation before release.

Super lean & fresh. Waxy, loads of energy

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"This one is washy and a little crisp, a lighter expression of viognier that delivers a more green and edgy white wine, green apple leading fainter stone fruit notes, some bread dough and cashew yeasty inflections and a cool, minerally finish. A gentle white, a pleasingly understated wine." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Amazing when paired with food

    This wine is highly drinkable on its own but we paired it with some spicy calamari cooked on the bbq and... bangin’

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 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).
