Grenache loves McLaren Vale, and it seems that punters definitely love McLaren Vale Grenache. The Worlds Apart Someone Great arose from a desire to create something lighter than the usually full-bodied offerings there. The result is lots of freshness and acidity, red fruit characters, and some tannin grip, without the high level of alcohol.

This is a wine that can cellar for several years before it'll be showing its best, although if opening it in the short term, decant it and let it breathe for a few hours – like you might do for a heftier McLaren Vale Grenache – and then enjoy the spoils of your patience.

The goal was to make something ethereally light bodied but with profound depth, tannin, and intense freshness. In the vein of Pfifferling, Leroy, rather than powerful Vale red. That juxtaposition of explosive perfume and structure in an incredibly light frame. Layers. Taking it to the extreme. This requires decanting, not just for the wack of natural sediment, but because it is a very tightly wound wine that will take years to show its technicolor spectrum of fruit. It’s austere, uncompromising and demanding but the reward is there for the dedicated drinker.

95 Points - "From a thicket of older, Blewitt Springs vines this is grenache that comes in off the vineyard on the Mac Forbes-Joe Holyman picking time line, ending up at a light weight 10.8% alcohol. Extended maceration does the deed for structure and tension in the wine. Lively Louis Schofield suggests its an homage to Pfifferling (L’Anglore) and Leroy, per se, in the vein of light weight but very architectural and perfumed wines.

Hits the spot. Pale garnet colour. Scents of pickled plums and rose hip tea, Earl Grey tea; similar flavours. Light weight, indeed, a sheath of silty tannins lending tug and chew, nervy acidity all perky and crunchy through the core. Fragrant, piercing, long and fine, a beautiful, fine-boned red of levity, freshness and bitey, thirst-quenching tang. Fantastic drinking and I reckon this one will do a treat in the cellar. Stellar, in its filigreed way." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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.

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.
