2021 Just Enough Codex Verdelho

McLaren Vale, SA

A slightly skinsy McLaren Vale Verdelho that has an electric vibe to it.


A tasty, fresh, saline-minerally wine.

About This Wine

Not something we see every day, skin-contact Verdelho, this is nonetheless an interesting and individual wine of character.

A saline mineral tang is the driver of this wine, yet there is a tropical and nutty undercurrent of flavour that runs through the palate and adds a layer or two of extra complexity.

Biodynamic with zero-adds, there is a new natural wine producer on the scene, and he’s making some really interesting wines, case in point, this Codex.

About Just Enough Wines

Bobby Fishel is the man behind Just Enough Wines. An Englishman who has been an importer of wines into the UK, this is his first solo winemaking project.

Sourcing fruit from biodynamic, organic, or organic-in-conversion vineyards across the Barossa region, these wines are fresh funky and lots of fun.

An exciting new project here, with the initial set of releases causing a bit of a stir, this is a producer to keep your eye on.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Such a tasty, fresh, saline-minerally wine. Electric with acidity, green apple, almost Jura-like salty tang and pucker with tartness yet soft, tropical fruit characters fall out quietly underneath and soft, cashew nut savouriness rolls around the palate likewise. The finish is lemony, hazy and comes with a little walnut paste smother which will need to be navigated by drinking this thing quickly." - Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

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.
