About the Wine

Whether or not this a rose or a light red could be the source of endless debate around the table. But if you're having that conversation, you've missed the point entirely. It's all about a different take on Shiraz - and we love it.

Inspired by the light reds from Jura, which are made from Poulsard (Poolside, get it?!), this is simply a light dry red which is designed for those long summer days. Rose and musk, with cranberries and some herbs, held together by a crunchy acidity. The words which some to mind are fresh, delicious and smashable.

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.

From the Producer

Can you imagine sitting by a pool full of water drinking this little baby?” The Autumn sun was still warm, it was moving into the Golden hour and we needed a name for this little lass. We just had to do it. It all made sense. Could we ever do it again, who knows but for now we shall call her Poolside. She went off like a frog in a Sock and from that harvest on, I have tried my best to make our favourite little girl each year. Hailing all the way from sandy Vine Vale.

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.

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).
