About
...a pleasing, lighter red wine.

About The Wine

Tim Shand has done some excellent things with the Punt Road range since taking the reins. Pumping his energy and skill through every vein in the brand. In this drop, Tim takes on Yarra Valley Gamay with a vengeance.

The idea was to create a wine with the same feel as great Beaujolais, and we think he's done a pretty bang on job. Fragrant, full of red berries and a delicously more-ish edge of peppery spice.

Intelligent winemaking, here. The finished wine is just a pleasure to drink. It is undeniably delicious to the last drop.

Additional Info

From The Producer

We’ve put a lot of work into developing this variety in the vineyard year on year.

n the winery, the aim was to take the depth and vibrancy of the fruit we had, and build a wine with the presence and drive we see in great Beaujolais.

The finished wine – no finings and minimally filtered, has fragrant red berries and juniper on the nose and subtle notes of cinnamon and a moreish earthy pepper on the back palate.

Blend : Gamay (100%)
ABV : 13.5%

The Wine Front

"Tart, bright, ultra light expression with zesty, pleasingly bitter red berry fruit character, pepper and alpine herb notes, blood orange acidity. Very light and delicate wine, fine boned, perhaps a bit diffuse but generally a pleasing, lighter red wine." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Pops like lip gloss

    Forget about drink because this is some serious juice, big popping fruit flavour yet enough length to be both good for a guzzle or to match with food. A personal fave at the moment. Guaranteed to add some style to quarantine.

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).
