Description

95 points & Top 100 Wines of the Year
"The quality of this super-expressive lemon, apple and lanolin fruit had its life to live, and transformed itself from chrysalis to resplendent butterfly."
- James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

Year after year De Iuliis' early released Semillon is one of the Hunter Valley's true bargains.

We love Mike De Iuliis' classy range of wines and it's great to see such good value from the Hunter. Where some of Mike's more premium Semillon releases are built for contemplation over several years in the cellar, this wine is built for contemplation over several seconds in your glass.

Light, fruit-driven and utterly loveable, this is Hunter Semillon made for drinking, not thinking.

Pale lime green in appearance with a bouquet of intense lemon and lime citrus. This wine displays fresh, lifted, citrus characters, a light palate, and crisp, zesty acids. The perfect match for seafood or any delicately flavoured dishes.

The Hunter Valley is renowned for producing some of the best Semillon in the world. These vines are planted on our Lovedale Road property in the early 90s.

95 points & Top 100 Wines of the Year - "The moody Hunter weather threatened, but the rain stopped, the soil allowed harvesters onto the vines – and the quality of this super-expressive lemon, apple and lanolin fruit had its life to live, and transformed itself from chrysalis to resplendent butterfly." - James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

    Not convinced

    We have really loved previous vintages. The 2021 has really failed to impress so far. Tastes more like a sauv blanc. Hopefully age is kinder

De Iuliis

De Iuliis - pronounced [de uli ~ iss] - is one of the brightest stars from the Hunter Valley.

Owners Joss and Anna De luliis first planted vines on their estate in the famous Lovedale sub-region back in 1990, but it wasn’t until their son Mike got involved after graduating from the world-renowned Roseworthy campus (Adelaide University) in 1999 that things really took off.

Today Mike crafts an excellent array of site-specific wines that are a very good modern representation of what the Hunter Valley has to offer.

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.
