This is the Lloyd brothers' crack at a preservative free wine, and they've absolutely nailed it.

As the boys explain, the only way to produce a quality wine without any preservatives is to grow excellent, well-balanced fruit, and as always with these McLaren Vale pros, that's their priority.

This is low-cropped Shiraz with a splash of Sangiovese - and 100% natural from vineyard to bottle.

It's bright, lifted and all about pure, vibrant Shiraz fruit. A smashing, easy drinking, spice-laden red.

Our is produced from a very low cropping Shiraz vineyard, which we blend with a small amount of Sangiovese.

The fruit is hand-picked, de-stemmed and undergoes fermentation in small open fermenters. No additions of any kind. The result is a lively and fresh wine that shows depth and concentration. Producing a wine with no SO2 additions is not without its challenges so we aim to produce the very best quality fruit we can - the idea being that if the fruit naturally has a good balance of ripeness, acidity, sugar then the eventual wine has a better chance of holding up over time.

We don't have issues with sulphur use in making wine, its a very useful product!- this wine is simply an investigation of the fact that at times we find ourselves less enthusiastic about a wine once it has been sulphured.

93 points - "Liquorice, blue and black fruits, a little aniseed and dried herb. It’s fleshy and full of stony/graphite tannin, really rolls through the mouth with a thick feel, so much chew and satisfaction in the texture, a little saline too, with black olive and meaty savoury stuff, and some dark cherry/liquorice to close. Feels almost like a Sagrantino, or something of a more Italianate bent. I like it. Hearty and good to drink. That tannin profile is quite something." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

93 points - Blewitt Springs material. Abstemious yields. A dollop of sangiovese suffuses perk and a welcome edge to the tannins. Fermented wild on skins for several weeks. Pulpy. Fullish, but limpid and alive in the glass. The tannins, long limbed and succulent, as if chewing the most delicious grape until it disintegrates. Australians were once terrified of real tannins. Now we have wines like this to show us the way. Iodine, licorice allsorts, blue fruits, mint, soaring florals, polished suede...and the 3rd glass, please." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)

Duncan and Peter Lloyd are the latest generation of Lloyds (of Coriole fame) to make wine in McLaren Vale.

Growing up immersed in the hotbed of food and wine culture that is McLaren Vale, the boys have now partnered up to start their own wine project with a stunning vineyard in Blewitt Springs as the centrepiece.

The grapes are farmed organically, the wines are made with a gentle touch, but rather than let the 'minimal intervention' philosophy hem them in with dogma, the boys are free to tinker and blend as they see fit.

These are fantastic, energetic wines that have set a cracking pace with only a few vintages under the brand's belt. Keep your eyes peeled for what's next for the brothers Lloyd.

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.
