2022 Torzi Matthews Mystic Park Shiraz
Crafted with fruits from two vineyards, one in the Angaston sub-region of the Barossa and one in the Mt McKenzie sub-region, this Shiraz is deliciously aromatic, with flavours of blackberry and spice, with a gratifying finish.
Lighter in fruit profile and palate weight than its Schist Rock brother, this is nonetheless a deeply enjoyable bottle of Shiraz, particularly at the price point.
Perfect to share around as a table wine, enjoy over pizza and a movie, or to settle in with on your next binge-watch sesh.
"It’s kind of like Beaujolais x Barossa Shiraz in a way, well, that kind of feel. Very good too."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
2022 Brothers at War Peace Keeper Grenache
A tiny production wine, this Grenache was hand-picked and partially whole-bunch fermented while being aged in a ceramic egg.
A silky smooth wine, there is something about the use of ceramics and concrete in fermentation that adds a really unique textural element to wines that we just don’t see with traditional vessels such as oak and steel.
Purple in colour, and in fruit, the wine has pretty florals and a killer spice element, that once again showcases why Grenache is such a great variety, that can appeal to both ends of the wine-drinking spectrum.
"I was greatly impressed by the range of wines from Brothers at War last year. Same this year: here's a lovely grenache from the Pendee Farm and Stone Garden sites in the Eden Valley and a Barossan vineyard in Bethany."
- 95pts, Dave Brookes (Halliday Wine Companion)
2022 Frederick Stevenson Nero d'Avola
A new adventure into another alternative variety for the excellent bloke that is Steve Crawford at Freddie Stevenson.
A fragrant, vibrant and juicy Nero from the Adelaide Hills. A nod to the fragrant and energetic Nero / Frappato based blends from Sicily.
Destemmed and fermented on skins for 6 days. Pressed to a few year old foudre where it matured for 12 months.
2022 Spinifex Papillon
Introducing Papillon - one of the most gluggable reds in the Barossa Valley!
The Spinifex wines cover a wide spectrum, from rich, full-throttled old vine Shiraz all the way to this, a light bodied, energetic Grenache Cinsault blend made for easy day-time drinking.
These styles are certainly in vogue but as usual, winemaking wizard Schell elevates it to another level, utilising incredibly old vines and astute winemaking to add depth and complexity to what is joyously pure red berried fruit.
Papillon is one of our go-to's and just unbeatable value. What a producer Spinifex is.
2020 Little Frances Classic Dry Red
Cabernet-dominant small batch blend made by Erin Pooley from the Light Pass area of the Barossa.
A traditional style maybe, but this superb release is no hark-back blockbuster. It has a lightish, savoury frame where the blackberry/ blackcurrant fruit is encased in some chiselled, dusty tannins.
Took its time to open up, but was still singing after being open for 3-4 days.
2022 Sons Of Eden Marschall Shiraz
Marschall is a brilliant little Shiraz, sourced from the sub-regions of Ebenezer and Tanunda where David Marschall (the namesake of this wine) planted his vineyards at the time the Barossa was still finding its feet.
There is no denying it, Corey Ryan and Simon Cowham know how to handle Barossa fruit, and the Marschall is a very slick example of their winemaking nous and prowess in full swing. In terms of top value Shiraz from this part of the world, this wine has a great track record.
The balance managed by Corey Ryan is absolutely on point, it's a delicious bargain for Barossa lovers!

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.

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email email@example.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.
