A lovely, lighter, frisky Grenache wine here from Troy Kalleske & family.

This colourful range of wines from Kalleske aims to take classic Barossa varieties and reimagine them in a modern context. Here is Grenache in a very light, easy drinking style. The fruit for this wine comes off the vine up to three weeks earlier than the other Grenache fruit on the Kalleske block.

Picking so much earlier brings a whole array of strawberry, raspberry and sweet floral notes to the wine. It's also much lower in alcohol (12.0%) than your traditional Barossa Grenache.

It's a very tasty rendition of the variety.

Grenache is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. It is typically harvested late in the season when it is fully ripe to display gorgeous rich sweet red fruit characters and soft supple tannins with a generous and supple mouthfeel. But when harvested early in the season a divergent and equally impressive wine can result.

Parallax Grenache is picked 2-3 weeks earlier than normal and combined with fermentation on stalks and minimal maturation has resulted in an admirably divergent wine compared to the norm from this variety, showing the versatility of Grenache.

92 Points - "Sweet scented, rose hip tea and raspberries, some green herb and a touch of mixed/nondescript botanicals wafting through. Juicy-soft in the palate, medium weight, very bright, a bit sweet fruited but with fine tannin shaping things nicely and a good screw of herbs n spice to finish, lingering. Quite dark fruited in essence, but lots of freshness and tension in the mix, elevating things well. Good drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

92 Points - "It's grenache Jim, but not as we know it. Before us, is Kalleske's distinctly lo-fi take on the much-loved variety. Certified biodynamic, single-vineyard fruit, wild fermented with stalks and skins for 10 days, it cuts a decidedly funky, pinot-esque line across the tongue with Campari-like, amaro and herbal nuances, souk-like spice and crunchy red-fruited verve. Wild-eyed and sapidly beguiling drinking." - Dave Brookes (Halliday Wine Companion)

91 Points - "The colour is medium to light and bright, with purple tints, while the bouquet is young and fresh and has a vegetal note from the whole-bunch fermentation. The palate is medium-bodied, softly textural, the herbal characters meshing well with red fruit flavours. It's succulent and supple, a prime example of why grenache is often called the pinot of the Barossa." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

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.
