Description

The very thoughtful and considered ethos of Samantha Chandra is behind this lovely Syrah from Flaxman Valley in the Barossa region.

Made with fruit entirely from the Naimanya Vineyard with 30+ year old Shiraz vines, it sits at 525 metres above sea level and is thought to be the highest Shiraz site in South Australia!

Two different picks were done, one earlier to get grapes with bright natural acidity and then a later pick for depth of flavour, complexity and tannin.

Aged entirely in older oak, bottled without fining or filtration, the whole package comes together into a beautifully integrated, flavourful Syrah with minimal additions. Elegant stuff, and a great addition the Barossa/Eden Valley wine scene.

Only 143 dozen produced.

"Outstanding, Deep and dark, brooding and yet holding this vivid sense of freshness, blue fruits, pretty spice, herbal lift and saline mineral charm. It elevates on each sip, feeling finer, friskier, lither, as you spend time with the wine... Finesse personified. It nails the brief. It feels of fruit and the depth possible from gentle handling. It’s wine I want to drink."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

V22 in Eden Valley was a cool and mild season with slow ripening conditions resulting in bright acidity and giving rise to aromatic, vibrant wines.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from Christa and Leon Deans’ Naimanya vineyard in Flaxman Valley. Their vineyard is believed to be the highest shiraz site in SA, sitting at an elevation of 525m. The vines are over 30 years old with granitic loam soils that were formed from impact with a meteorite.

Two picks were made; an earlier pick for vibrant, natural acidity and a later pick for complexity. 100% whole bunches were wild fermented with three weeks on skins then matured on full lees for about a year. 100% old oak barrels were used, along with one second-fill François Frères hogshead.

Bottling took place on site without filtration or fining and all movements were done by gravity.

Production – 1723 bottles

It elevates on each sip, feeling finer, friskier, lither, as you spend time with the wine. A corset of graphite-laced tannins lends structure and tension, acidity bright but back seat in the dark fruit, herbal and peppery elements. Finesse personified. It nails the brief. It feels of fruit and the depth possible from gentle handling. It’s wine I want to drink." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Customer Reviews

Setiono

Samantha Chandra is the heart and brains behind Setiono, a new project coming out of the Barossa.

After her first vintage at Wynns in Coonawarra where she worked closely with Sue Hodder, and furthered her winemaking experience by spending time at various other wineries in Australia (like Yering Station), as well as overseas in the Napa Valley.

Sentiono started as a passion project for Rhone style Syrah, and in 2021, Sam's dream was finally realised. She has plans to grow her label, and it's one to keep an eye on.

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.
