About

About the Wine

Made by the very talented Mr Shobbrook, a man dedicated to crafting wines which are equal parts fun, interest driven and expressions of site.

Perfectly medium bodied, with 50% whole bunches used during fermentation. It's aromatic but savoury, juicy but tannic. It really combines the best of different styles of Syrah, becoming greater than the sum of its parts.It's quite devilish of Mr Shobrook, really, to make a wine so drinkable that it's easy to overlook just how refined, well structured and complex it is.

About Shobbrook Wines

After 12 years on his family's Seppeltsfield vineyards Shobbrook can now be found tending his fledgling Organic farm in Flaxman Valley. Currently at two acres, the plan is to expand this to five while continuing to source fruit from likeminded growers and friends in Adelaide Hills and Barossa Valley.

Shobbrook is intrinsic to Australia's Natural movement. The early days saw him touring the length of the country shaking up our industry with vigour, his visits, and the wines, were exciting, unprecedented and at times confronting, it was a wild ride for which we will are forever grateful.

Lovers of Natural wine should, and probably already do, drink these wines in abundance. Those intrigued by what the Natural wine movement has to offer should start here. These wines are exemplary.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The Poco Rosso was supposed to be a medium to light red wine from mostly old Vine Vale Syrah. While it might have been so for the unreleased version of 2019, it was not to follow both in 2020 and again this year in 2021. The vineyard is too good and the fruit too old to take all that away. Harvest is not early nor late with Poco Rosso. Its somewhere in between before the fruit starts to loose its plumpness. Whole clusters of Syrah are immersed in fermenting poolside juice. Here we get the best of both worlds, youth and wisdom. A wine I find myself going back to for the sheer savouriness.

The Wine Front

"Older vines produce whole bunch fruit and Poolside juice goes over the lot like a nice bath for the fruit. All syrah. Beautiful, savoury style red. Soft, supple, flowing red, dark, bloody and inky plum fruit with veins of clove/cinnamon spice, dried herbs and truffle-earthiness through it all. Moody, brooding wine, gently palate staining and long, beautiful, nourishing in its feel. Gorgeous." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

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).
