Description

The Shaw + Smith team are behind The Other Wine Co. label.

It's a place for them to create wines that perhaps fit outside of the S+S brand. Where S+S has made a name for themselves as the verified kings of Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, here's their take on a lightly textural style of Pinot Gris.

The fruit is chilled and left on lees for four months before being bottled, allowing Gris' natural roundness to flesh to come to the fore.

It's dry, crisp, crunchy and the perfect no-brainer white to knock back on a sunny afternoon.

Fresh, lively, & textured.

Low yields and handpicking. Cool fermentation in stainless steel is followed by four months on lees.

91 Points - "It's pretty reliable year-in but this is no doubt one of the better releases. Indeed maybe it's the best yet. It's bright and buoyant but it just had the extra bit of flavour intensity. Juicy pear, red apple and stone fruit flavours have the palate singing. Lively is the word." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

91 Points - "A fresh and fragrant gris that has aromas of sliced pear and lemon, as well as apple. The palate has lightly tangy, fresh-pear flavour." - JamesSuckling.com

90 Points - "<span data-sheets-value="{&quot;1&quot;:2,&quot;2&quot;:&quot;Adelaide Hills. Surprisingly generous this year, with a suggestion of residual sugar to fill out the palate, complementing the ripe pear fruit. Simple flavours, crisp enough, but not much beyond that, although the palate stretches out through the finish. Solid, drink-me-now fuller style Gris.&quot;}" data-sheets-userformat="{&quot;2&quot;:14337,&quot;3&quot;:{&quot;1&quot;:0,&quot;3&quot;:1},&quot;14&quot;:{&quot;1&quot;:3,&quot;3&quot;:1},&quot;15&quot;:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;16&quot;:11}">Adelaide Hills.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
