Description

This is a classic example of how killer modern Grenache is today in McLaren Vale.

Corrina Wright's example is bang on. This is a gorgeous sweet and spicy Grenache, with plenty of structure supporting the plush red fruits and old vine earthiness.

Grapes were sourced from the Old Block - traditional bush vines, coming up to sixty years old. This is what McLaren Vale does best.

"It is very easy to gloss over the glories of a wine because it is good value... This is a stunning Grenache and a serious bargain."
- Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

Crack a bottle, crank the wood oven pizzas and rejoice- 180 years on, and Grenache has finally reached the height of McLaren Vale cool. With all the fragrances of a mushroom foraging tromp through the pine trees, this medium-bodied Grenache is full of spice, earth and forest berry aromas.

95 points - "It is very easy to gloss over the glories of a wine because it is good value, suited to sharing with pizza, or perhaps because the grape doesn’t always receive the acknowledgements it is due. I think that might be happening here. For me, this is an absolute stunning wine, worthy of the highest praise. McLaren Vale Grenache deserves the highest of pedestals. Dark crimson hue here, the nose is immediately exciting; raspberries, strawberries, florals, spices and a hint of bergamot. Enticing perfumes that never end. This is seamless and supple, with the silkiest of tannins and superb length. Wonderful stuff, with six to eight years. This is a stunning Grenache and a serious bargain." - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

    Delicious! Maybe a little too easy to drink, if only the bottle was bigger!

Oliver's Taranga

Five generations of the Oliver family have been farming land in McLaren Vale dating back to the 1840s.

There are now 100 hectares of land under vine on the Taranaga property - Taranga is a corruption of the aboriginal word Tarangk, meaning 'the middle' which was used by the Kaurna, a local aboriginal tribe.

Under the trailblazing guidance of winemaker Corrina Wright, there are now near 50 blocks of different varieties and clones. A McLaren Vale melting pot!

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.
