McLaren Vale Fiano in clean, bright and fresh form, that practically cries out for spicy seafood on a bbq.

Extended time on skins pre-ferment provides texture and a touch of nutty fino-like complexity. There's a little cloudiness to add some interest, as it is unfined and unfiltered.

Harvested from the Lacey vineyard in the Sellicks Foothills sub region of McLaren Vale. The wine was not crushed but destemmed, then whole berry pressed to both barrels and tank

"Rallying a cry to drinkability. Effortless and nourishing. Lovely to drink in hefty drafts. What's not to like?" "
- Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

From the Lacey vineyard in the Sellicks Foothills subregion of McLaren Vale. As per usual, no adds were required, and the wine was fermented on solids in a mix of old oak barrels and tank.

92 Points - "They lost half the production due to a rotten pallet causing a tank to fall over. Whoops. I know a few rotten palates myself, but they don't usually cause such catastrophic outcomes. Lovely artwork here too - 'Colours of the Beach' by Adam Harriden.Plenty of crunch and acidity here, with a distinctly saline character, along with lemon zest, grapefruit, and some nutty/funky, polished rice kind of flavours. It has a dusty, almost peppery feel, again the brine, green pear skin (or maybe watermelon rind), and a slightly bitter citrus tang on a firm finish of good length. The picture on the label illustrates the taste and feel of this wine so well. A pleasure for the synesthetes among us, perhaps. Serve it cool, not cold." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

93 Points - "Fermented spontaneously in a mix of old barrels and tank, on full solids. No adds. This is rank-and-file above the 2020, rallying a cry to drinkability around riffs on limoncello, cactus pear, a whirl of quinine bitterness and a shaving of raw almond, lacing the finish. Broader and more textural than in the past. Yet slippery, fresh and beautifully ripe, despite the lowish alcohol. Effortless and nourishing. Lovely to drink in hefty drafts. What's not to like?" - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

    The ladies liked sipping this on a warm night. I seemed to get a honey dew melon vibe from it straight after opening.

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.
