Description

When the name of your wine implies food, we hope, and expect, that it’s an indicator that there is a wine/food pairing to be had.

And that’s exactly what we have here, a straight up smashable Sangiovese that is juicy, bright and full of pasta melting tannins.

Sangiovese is coming along in leaps and bounds in SA and this Clare Valley version is so dangerously drinkable. Pasta, pizza, doesn’t matter, this wine is made for anything Italian and full of delicious carbs.

Variety: Sangiovese
Region: Clare Valley
Soil Type: Red Clay Loam on Shale
Vintage: 2022
Alcohol: 13.5% ABV
Volume: 750ml
Traditional Owners: Ngaduri Country

Winemaker's Notes:
Variety Change! Yup, we've flipped from this being 100% Nebbiolo to Sangiovese - a few reasons for this.
1 - In 2022 we harvested 450kg of Nebbiolo from the Adelaide Hills vineyard that was at the core of this wine (more on that in a few years). In 2023 we harvested nothing. It's been a tough few years for this variety and this vineyard.
2 - Sangiovese is a pretty good pasta variety hey?
As much as we love Nebbiolo - and we really love Nebbiolo - the future is bright for Sangiovese and we've been working with this fruit for a few years now in Truffle Hound and have been really impressed with the quality, so 2022 was the year to give it a solo release. If the Truffle Hound blend was the Beatles, Nebbiolo would be John, Barbera would be Paul, and for me, Sangiovese is George. So you could say this is our ‘My Sweet Lord’. Apologies for the musical tangent.

Unico Zelo

Unico Zelo is the project of winemaking couple Brendan and Laura Carter. In their words, their aim is to create “Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines” and “Australian examples of Mediterranean varieties in an approachable and jovial fashion.”

Since bursting onto the scene in 2014 with their eye-catching, outrageously good value alternative vino, the Carters have spread their wings and their range. They now make a large suite of wines, including single vineyard examples of Fiano, Nero d'Avola and Nebbiolo. They are one of the most dynamic winemaking duos in the Adelaide Hills.

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.
