...the same magic as young, high-quality pinot noir. Truly delectable.

About The Wine

How good is McLaren Vale Grenache?!  These bright, gorgeous, ethereal reds - from the Blewitt Springs sub-region in particular - are just so perfect for growing and drinking under our Aussie sun.

This is Grenache 101 from Main & Cherry.  Picked early to retain freshness and purity, this just bounces out of the glass with waves of red fruits and a nice lick of tannin.

Super drinking and super value.

They are contemporary, polished and excellent value for money. With new experimental cuveés are quietly entering the fold with some fantastic results.

The Real Review

"Medium to deep, very bright young purple/red colour. The bouquet is very lifted in perfume, with abundant spiciness that lifts and carries it. The mid-palate has delicious fruit sweetness and charm, the palate long and complete with the right measure of ripe tannin. An excellent grenache, in spite of being very young and a bit callow." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

The Weekend Australian

"Sourced from old, dry-grown vines in Blewitt Springs; hand-picked, wild yeast fermented and basket-pressed before a brief stay in used French oak. Neither fined nor filtered; gloriously spicy red fruits create the same magic as young, high-quality pinot noir. Truly delectable." - James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

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 1300 668 385 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).
