Heathcote is not just the domain of heavy, high-alcohol reds - minimum intervention and natural wines are also go be found, such as this crackingly gentle Vin de Soif Syrah.

From certified organic vineyard plots on the region's famous old Cambrian soil, with nothing added save a tiny amount of sulphur prebottling.

Joyfully fresh, with red and black fruits abundant, supported by just enough fine, grainy tannin as it fizzes along the palate.

Shiraz in the modern mode for drinking at any time.

Vin De Soif is a small-batch wine project focusing on creating well-made, organically farmedvwines with a minimalist hands off approach. Each release carries inspiration from Rhône
varietals honing in on forging interesting and textural wines that retain integrity to their individual terroir yet deliver on freshness and drinkability. All fruit is sourced from small parcels of certified organic single-site vineyards in Heathcote. These vines are aged between10 - 15 years old and are all planted on Cambrian soil, an igneous rock pushed up by a volcanic thrust approximately 500 million years ago; a super calcium rich soil with incredible water retention.

The result is super concentrated fruit that retains their varietal integrity while remaining expressive of their terroir. All wines remain unfiltered and un-fined with only a small addition of sulphur added at bottling if required. Vin De Soif aims to create light, playful
pleasure-seeking wines that are for drinking on Sundays, Organic Wines Pour Le Bistro.

92 Points - "From 15 year old, certified organic vines in Heathcote. Shiraz a la soif.

Bright and vivacious style, slurpy but with enough tannin to show it who is boss. Kind of feels almost sweet but isn’t, it’s distinctly saline minerally, slightly earthy and leathery, yet, that bouncy fruitiness counter punches well. Sloshes into the palate, grips a little, finishes spicy. It’s a guzzler. Yum." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Not Your Average Syrah

    This is a light, bright easy drinking Syrah, very different from those you will find in France. Think summer fruits on the nose balanced by light tannins with a little spice on the finish and a decent length for such a young wine. I found this a great wine to drink on its own or matched with cured meats and cheese. Handpicked and organically made you can tell the care that has gone into this. Great value and one I would definitely buy again.

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.
