Description

Ryan O'Meara at Express Winemakers is making fun wines with a serious edge out of WA's Great Southern region.

This red is a great case in point. The Drinking Wine is built for ultimate smashability, a wine to slug down during a casual luncheon or to rip the top off when unexpected friends drop by.

It's made from Shiraz (70%), Pinot Noir (21%) and equal parts (4.5%) Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. all from organic farms across Margaret River and Great Southern.

This is the best version of this wine to date - juicy, crunchy and brimming with life. It's hard to imagine a red wine that is easier to drink.

The 2023 Drinking Red is a delicious blend of Shiraz (70%), Pinot Noir (21%) and equal parts (4.5%) Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Shiraz and Cabernet are sourced from the organically managed Lecco Vineyard in Mount Barker―a site previously leased by Ryan and one he still consults to―while the Pinot, also from Mount Barker, hails from Crystal Brook Vineyard. The Malbec is sourced from the L’enclos du Tertre site in Frankland River. Ryan picks the Syrah and Pinot Noir early to capture freshness and natural acidity and presses them immediately to tank for fermentation. This lightly coloured rosé-style wine was then steeped on the Malbec skins for a short period before all components were blended together. The wine then matured in tank before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    Summer red

    This wine is all about chilling. Cool it down, relax and chill with a glass. Incredibly quaffable but nothing serious.

Express Winemakers

Express Winemakers is Ryan O'Meara's pint-sized wine operation from the deep south of WA.

From kicking off in 2011, Ryan has assembled a group of top-flight vineyards from around the Great Southern that supply him with top-flight fruit to make his fun and creative range of wines.

There's some serious value to be had in the Express range, from funky & skinsy whites, through spicy cool-climate reds and everything in between.

Express Winemakers is a terrific example of the ever-rising tidal wave of young and adventurous WA producers reinventing the west!

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.
