Description

The Commune of Buttons Syrah is a wine for those who like vibrant and elegant reds.

Made without any additions, this vintage is bang-on for the style that Jasper and Sophie want to make. It was picked early looking for freshness and fermented with a lot of whole berries and bunches.

It's got the vitality of youth and enough grunge to keep it interesting. A cracking Syrah which will be a huge crowd pleaser, guaranteed.

A beautiful, elegant version of Adelaide Hills Syrah - the wine is irresistible.

This is the first year Buttons fruit has been sourced from this vineyard (with the intention to replace the Sparrows vineyard which has been pulled out). The Sluiter vineyard is three-quarters of a hectare of Syrah of three different clones (1164, 1127 and 1125). The soil is sand over light clay, and the site is under the shadow of a large hill, with a cool result and ripening often occurring towards the end of April. The fruit for 2021 was harvested on the 12th of April at 11.5% potential alcohol.

Whole bunches were chilled for three days pre-fermentation before going to three-tonne jarrah fermenters (leaving 80% of the fruit as whole bunch). At the end of fermentation, bunches were jumped on just before pressing to extract colour and tannin. The wine is soft and distinctly Syrah with powerful aromas of violets and blueberries. The fruit is grounded throughout by the early tannins and acidity, resulting in a wine that’s lighter in body but has great depth, and is very drinkable.

Commune of Buttons

Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home some years ago to help save their family vineyard nestled in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills, planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay 20 years ago by their mother.

They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic farming, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking.

The wines are made naturally with only minimal sulphur additions and slow, gentle ferments. Jasper's winemaking has taken them to the front of the pack in the lo-fi Australian wine scene. With each release, the wines are more refined and detailed. They are wonderfully pure, unadulterated and as loveable as the family who makes them.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
