About The Wine

The two lads at Somos know how to release some seriously eye-catching wines. Here's a highly chuggable Rosé made from Barbera grapes grown in McLaren Vale.

This is raised in old oak barrels, then bottled without fining or filtering - a bountiful Rosé with bucket loads of energy is what has emerged.

A gentle pressing and attentive lees stirring ensuring that the texture and vitality of the finished wine is as fresh as ever.

Such an interesting wine.  How good is Aussie Rosé!

About Somos

The Somos wines are the product of two enthusiastic young winemakers - one Australian and one Mexican - looking to make interesting and contemporary wines from McLaren Vale.

Benjamin Caldwell and Mauricio Ruiz Cantu are the creative duo behind this exciting project, with the wines exported back to South & Central America as well as sold through just a handful of outlets and venues locally in Australia.The focus is on 'alternative' varieties from sustainably managed vineyards - their Aglianicos being of particular note.

Their unique wines are made with a deft touch, the resulting styles perfumed and balanced, bursting with energy and personality. Just minuscule volumes produced, but there's great fun to be had across the Somos range.

We basket pressed this one to old french hogsheads, barrel fermented at low temperatures with plenty of stirring. It was then aged in barrel on lees, with occasional stirring to temper the naturally high barbera acidity and round out the palate.

The Wine Front

"It’s fresh and gently sweet, juicy cherries and cranberry drink. The feel is good, the drinkability there. It feels a bit glossy and then ends kinda dry and puckering. It has a good spread of fruit and spice and savoury. Dry too. Yeah, sure." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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).
