About the Wine

Fans of Sauvignon Blanc, back up the truck. This is a steal.

This estate grown wine displays all the things that have seen Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc touted as arguably the best in the country. It's crisp and dry yet loaded with flavour, the sort of wine that is the first to disappear out of the esky at a BBQ.

With well-balanced, cool breezy flavours, this one is a no-brainer. Perfect drinking for the warmer months.

This attention to detail and care for the environment around them creates exceptional, flavourful, quality wines that are highly regarded in Australia as well as globally.

Sourced primarily from one of Australia's finest Sauvignon Blanc vineyards. The wine spent four months in tank, allowing extended lees contact.

Citrus and tropical aromas mixed with complex, crisp flavours of exotic fruits (think lychee, kaffir lime, gooseberry) with passionfruit and lemon peel. Extremely beautifully balanced with a soft, lingering finished. A versatile wine suited to seafood, game dishes and spicy cuisine.

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"Quite complex and lifted aromas of cut-grass, gooseberry, passionfruit and grapefruit. Fresh, lemony and herbaceous on the palate, there's a fine line of acidity and some textural grip and mouth-feel. " - Aaron Brasher (The Real Review)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Gentle pressing and fermentation using only free-run juice, 4 months in tank for extended lees contact. What do we ask of sauvignon blanc? We ask for this: a wine that combines tension and energy with simply joyous, live-for-the-moment fruit intensity. Kaffir lime, lemon zest, grapefruit, nettle and lemongrass moments dart in, out and around zippy acidity. Scintillating. Trophy Perth Royal Wine Awards '21." - Jeni Port (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
