About The Pack

With the changing of the seasons comes a changing in wine selection.

At this time of year, Rosés and Rieslings start giving way to medium-bodied, savoury reds that are built for sipping as the afternoons turn cool.

Here are six fantastic reds that are perfect for drinking anytime, anywhere this Autumn. From a lighter shade Pinot Meunier through to a cracking cool-climate Syrah, you'll have all bases covered with these six contemporary Aussie reds.

 

2020 Poppelvej Dancing in the Doldrums Pinot Meunier

These new red wines from young Danish born winemaker, Uffe Deichmann, are real firecrackers..

Here he ventures to a vineyard in the Adelaide Hills in search of Pinot Meunier. With a small parcel secured, Uffe ferments it as whole clusters with just a short time on skins before pressing.

This winemaking approach brings a subtle great spice and lift to the wine, keeping it red fruited, nervy and fresh.

It's a spicy, light-bodied little pocket rocket which is primed for a quick chill and drinking in the sun.

2020 Adelina Cabernet Franc

Satiny, mid-weight Clare Valley red, replete with cherry and strawberry aromatics, and a pure, clean-living palate.

This is Adelina's second Cab Franc release from the now-certified Smith vineyard in the Polish Hill River sub-region. Last year's zero sulphur wine was a little on the wild side - a tiny bit of sulphur in the 2020 release means this is all fresh, delicious, red-berry juiciness, with a herbal, peppery backbone.

Fruit was all destemmed, with just a few days spent on skins, then six months quiet maturation in old french barriques. Joyous wine.

2020 Brave New Wine El Rojo Tempranillo Shiraz

El Rojo (meaning The Red in Spanish) is a whole lot of fun for husband and wife duo Andries and Yoko Lüscher-Mostert to make.

The fruit was handpicked from one of Frankland River's premier vineyards. Bush vine Tempranillo with a motley crew of Shiraz, Mencia, Counoise and Cinsault were on offer. They fermented all the fruit naturally as whole bunches and carefully concocted the blend to get the perfect mix of delicious ripe fruit and spice.

It has (as the name suggests) a distinctly Spanish 'feel'; savoury and herbal yet light and energetic. But a wine like this isn't to be judged, it is meant to be drunk with gusto - with a slight chill on it if you like.

2020 Main & Cherry Sangiovese

So much great value vino coming from the cellar of Michael Sexton.

His range is jam-packed with vibrant, energetic examples of alternative varieties. Here he takes aim at Sangiovese and knocks it straight to the boundary.

The fruit comes from a biodynamically farmed vineyard in McLaren Vale. It's all Brunello clone which makes for a more structural style of Sangiovese traditionally. However, with gentle handling from Michael this version has maintained the silky drinkability that is the hallmark of McLaren Vale reds.

It's the perfect Thursday night pizza wine. Bellissimo!

2020 Vino Volta Post Modern Seriousism Grenache

More and more attention being paid to the Swan Valley crew these days. If wines like this keep popping up from the region, the buzz is going to get all the louder.

It's a brilliant Grenache here from Garth and Kristen. Mature vines, the region's flagship variety, a touch of whole bunch and a lot of care in the making. It jumps out of the glass.

There's modern, then there's post-modern. And if this is post-modern, then sign us up!

2019 Swinney Syrah

A fantastic example of Syrah here from the Swinney family and the crack team of Rob Mann and Lee Haselgrove.

While Western Australian Cabernet Sauvignon gets the lion's share of attention, Shiraz when grown in the right spot can excel, particularly when grown and tended by someone as knowledgeable as Lee Haselgrove.

This is a brilliant Syrah. It's spicy, intense and powerful, ready to drink now or in a decade's time. Rob Mann has brought a wealth of experience to the Swinney operation since coming on as winemaker in 2018 and every ounce of his skill is on show here.

As Gary Walsh said in his 94 point review, it's quite simply "Excellent. Savoury. Regional. Quite the looker.."

Super Pack

Great bunch of reds. All smashable, but still with a bit of structure. The Poppelvej Pinot Meunier definitely a stand out.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
