Description

The name Sang de Pigeon is drawn from winemaker Michael Hall's time as a jewellery valuer. Meaning "Blood of the Pigeon", this title was given to only the reddest of rubies in the trade.

Here, Michael uses it to describe the fine fruit selected for this lovely Shiraz. The fruit is sourced from a combination of four different vineyards from Stone Well, Greenock and Krondorf.

It's made with Michael's signature deft touch resulting in a classy and great value version of Shiraz from this famous region.

Sang de Pigeon (pigeon’s blood) is a nod to my former life as a jewellery valuer. It’s the trade term for the colour of the finest rubies, invariably from the Mogok Stone Tract in Myanmar. The precious grapes for this fragrant and deeply coloured wine were grown far to the south-east, in South Australia’s Barossa Valley.

For wine nerds like me: Fair winter rains were punctuated by a rare October hailstorm in Stone Well, damaging young shoots and reducing yields. Hand-picked from Smyth Road, Stonewell Road and Flaxman’s Valley. 88% destemmed, 12% whole bunch, wild fermented, pressed to French oak, matured for 20 months in barrel (36% new).

4320 bottles produced.

    Excllent drop - amazing value

    Really enjoyed this Shiraz - everything I would expect from a Barossa Shiraz. Came on here to add it as a favourite to order again and see what it was worth because it tasted expensive and was very surprised by this extremely reasonable price point! Currently out of stock, if it comes back in stock - better be quick! I'm going to be all over it!

    Nice drop

    Typical Barossa Shiraz with a lovely bold flavour. Took a punt on this one and it paid off.

Michael Hall

It is Michael Hall's precise and methodical approach to winemaking which has made him stand out in the crowd of Barossa Valley winemakers.

A jewellery valuer in a previous life, his wines ooze clarity and attention to detail. They focus on small vineyards in the Barossa and Adelaide Hills that produce high-quality fruit. The wine are made with no shortcuts in the winery and an unwavering commitment to quality.

These are classically styled, refined wines designed to speak articulately of the Barossa and the surrounds. Michael's wines are top shelf.

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.
