About The Wine

This is a blend of four varieties, both red and white, from down south in Tasmania.

It's a wine built all around freshness. The red varieties, Pinot Noir and Gamay, are picked when the fruit is bright and jubey, bursting with fresh berries and some flowery aromatics.

The white varieties, Chardonnay and Riesling, combine for a lightning-sharp spine of acidity - bringing and moreishness and some citrus - it's the perfect relaxed red.

This is best served with a slight chill. Smashability writ large.

About Domaine Simha

Nav Singh is the man behind the Domaine Simha label. Along with his wife Louise, Nav has built a unique stable of Tasmanian wines under the Domaine Simha banner. 

He draws from multiple philosophies when crafting his range. The winemaking is mostly traditional, using low amounts of additives, fermenting in clay amphora, experimenting with varying levels of whole bunch and skin contact. The fruit he sources from the Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley regions, is all picked according to the lunar calendar ala biodynamics.

At Domaine Simha, new project is always in the works. Nav is never afraid to take a chance or try something new.

    A cool dog in the game

    Never have I ever tried this blend before! From the nose it's hard to detect Chardonnay or Riesling, still red fruits dominated, to me it smells a like a natural wine made from pinot noir. On the palate it's very interesting, I can taste the high acidity from Riesling. It's rather difficult to describe this wine other than I felt like my tongue was on a roller coaster, the medium-end taste is definitely different from a pure PN+Gamay wine. I had it chilled a bit and had it with home made ragu pasta, which was divine. I think a wine geek would def find this wine interesting.

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).
