2022 Nick Spencer P.A.R. Hilltops Malbec

P.A.R. is a new label from Nick Spencer, started with the intention of focusing entirely on emerging/alternative varieties in Australia, seeing fermentation and maturation only in sandstone amphoras.

The Malbec for this wine is sourced from a vineyard 600m above sea level with decomposed granite soils located around Young in the Hilltops region. The fruit gets picked and sent to amphora for fermentation and further ageing for 18 months.

It comes out bountiful in aromatics and flavour, with it's purple fruited heart to the fore thanks to the lack of oak. Read more

"You can tell it’s Malbec, but also, gee, it’s a lot like a good Teroldego. I really like this."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

2022 Michael Hall Sang de Pigeon Shiraz

The name Sang de Pigeon is drawn from winemaker Michael Hall's time as a jewellery valuer. Meaning "Blood of the Pigeon", this title was given to only the reddest of rubies in the trade.

Here, Michael uses it to describe the fine fruit selected for this lovely Shiraz. The fruit is sourced from a combination of four different vineyards from Stone Well, Greenock and Krondorf.

It's made with Michael's signature deft touch resulting in a classy and great value version of Shiraz from this famous region. Read more

2022 Domaine Naturaliste Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon

Bruce Dukes' winemaking starts literally from the ground up.

The man has been obsessed with growing things for over two decades and it shows in every wine he makes. His roots have been put down in Margaret River, and as such he has immense insight into what the balance of soil, aspect and clone can do to a wine in this part of the world. One of his great loves is Margaret River Cabernet - and with this wine, we can definitely see why.

He explained to us, "Rebus is a picture puzzle that when you look at it, the solution is not immediately apparent, there may be several solutions. That's why I love Margaret River Cabernet - it's constantly changing and it keeps me constantly challenged."

If you love Margaret River Cabernet, you are going to fall in love with this wine. Read more

"There’s a freshness of fruit, too – boysenberry and lingonberry, raspberry juice finished with a lick of black olive flesh. A wine of its place with so much going on in its youth and much more to come as it matures."
- Cassandra Charlick (Wine Pilot)

2022 Dune The Empty Quarter GSM

The Lloyd brothers have burst out of the gates with a suite of interesting and delicious examples of McLaren Vale wines.

With firm roots in the region, hailing from the great Lloyd dynasty at Coriole, this is the boys chance to spread their wings and do things their own way.

This is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre, and a dash of Touriga. Medium bodied, svelte and spicy with delicious ripe fruit flavours, they've nailed this wine from first swing of the hammer.

GSM fan? Here's something that's going to get your engine running. Read more

2022 Little Frances Beechworth Merlot

Little Frances was established in 2012 by Aussie ex-pat Erin Frances Pooley, who crafts wines she loves to drink, focusing on purity and site expression.

The 2022 Beechworth Merlot is sourced from the renowned Serengale vineyard and is de-stemmed, fermented on skins for three weeks, and aged on lees in large French puncheons.

This Merlot boasts all the typical dark plums and berries you'd expect from the variety, but with quite floral aromatics, and a distinct savoury, earthy character which really adds a dimension.

Bold yet refined, this wine captures the joy of Merlot and will be the first bottle emptied on any shared table. Read more

"Delicious! Quite bold in its character, a fire place red in some respects but also feels cool and pure too. Lovely."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

2022 Ricca Terra Vintners Bullets Before Cannonballs

Ash Ratcliff is one of the sharpest minds growing grapes in Australia with a vision towards a new Riverland. The "Bullets Before Cannonballs" concept is something Ash has used extensively during his time in the Riverland. The idea being, you shoot loads of 'bullets' - small trials of new varieties - and when you see one excelling you light the fuse on a cannonball and go deep on that variety.

It's a methodology which is yielding great results for Ricca Terra Farms. This wine is a fiery blend of the red varieties that have excelled for him so far: Tempranillo, Shiraz, Lagrein, and a touch of Lambrusco.

The finished wine is flush with dark fruits and exotic spice. Great value to be had here and a super versatile red for any night of the week. Read more

"The 2022 Bullets Before Cannonballs is a vibrant fuchsia-tinged magenta in the glass... Gorgeous. Ten out of 10 people would drink this, which is a pretty vital characteristic for wine in my book."
- Erin Larkin (The Wine Advocate)

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.
