About This Wine

Born and bred locals Chad and Gee Connolly at White Gate Wine Co have diverted from the norm of the 90s and released a softly-delicious, approachable style of Cabernet, that shows the lighter side of the Barossa Valley.

Lightly herbal, with gentle but ripe tannins playing around a succulent cherry/ red fruit core. Lovely length too. The grapes are picked early, whole berry fermented, and don’t spend too much time on skins.

They want to minimise extraction and prioritise a juicer expression, that is all about showcasing the fruit.

About White Gate Wine Co.

White Gate Wine Co is the husband and wife team Chad and Georgie (Gee) Connolly, Barossa locals who have set out to make approachable, juicy, minimum intervention wines, with Burgundy and Beaujolais their inspiration.

The focus in on early-picked fruit, bright acidities and no additions apart from small amounts of sulphur pre-bottling. Riesling, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Syrah (Durif).

The winemaking is decidedly old-school, with all reds basket-pressed, aged in old oak, and all wines bottled under cork and wax by hand.

Honing in on our more subtle approach of a Barossa Valley Cabernet, this year’s model comes as a single varietal. We’ve dropped the Syrah off this wine and love how exciting it looks.

    Modern, fresh, delicious!

    Got this in one of the DD mixed packs. Very little info online so I thought I'd write a review. Really enjoying this. Very modern cabernet style. Super juicy and fresh. Savoury herbs, boysenberry. Different and very interesting but also glugable.

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 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).
