Description

It would be hard to find a consistently better value wine from a top-flight Shiraz producer in the country than the Hilltops Shiraz from Clonakilla.

A selection of premium vineyards across the region contributing to the wine, it shows all the finesse of premium cool-climate Shiraz/Syrah without the hefty price-tag.

At $30 this is a no-brainer. If you want Clonakilla in your cellar but aren't regularly quaffing $90+ wines, then the Hilltops is a wine with great pedigree that can be consumed now or in 10 years time.

This Shiraz is made from grapes selected from five vineyards in the Hilltops district around Young on the South Western Slopes of New South Wales.

Mid-dark red hues with warm plum and cherry aromas woven through the region's trademark dark berry fruit.

Region: Hilltops, NSW
Blend: Shiraz (100%)
ABV: 13.00%

    Killer Clona

    Spicy, meaty and well-balanced. A gorgeous cool climate shiraz, that has a powdery tannin structure which suggests a good life ahead. Drink tonight if you link cool climate, medium-bodied shiraz with drying tannins. Age for 7 or 8 years for a more rounded experience. Bargain really, considering the wine's structure.

    Never disappoints

    A wonderful tasting wine that we go back to again and again. It’s full of depth but not overly heavy on the tannins, making it smooth.

Clonakilla

Clonakilla is one of the true icons of the Australian wine scene. Since its inception, it has been one of the leading lights of the Australian cool climate wine insurgence.

They boast one of the most collectable wines in the country in their Shiraz Viognier, a wine of outstanding quality and consistency over the last two decades. Whether Shiraz, Riesling or otherwise, every wine in the Clonakilla stable are considered amongst the benchmark examples in Canberra District.

Quite simply, Tim Kirk and his family-owned estate are one of the true gems in the Australian wine industry crown.

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.
