About The Pack

The Barossa Valley is Australia's most famous wine region, having helped herald the quality of Australian wine the world over for decades.

While there are plenty of big and gustatory wines still being made in the region, there is also some light and shade in style if you know where to look.

These six wines cover a wide spectrum of the great value reds being made in the Barossa today and are the perfect things to have handy at home when you're looking for a glass of the Barossa without paying the big bucks. 

2019 Vigna Cantina Sangiovese

Flavoursome, rustic Sangiovese, a tribute of sorts to Dom Torzi's family roots in Abruzzo in central Italy.

Fruit is from the undulating hills of Angaston, and winemaking is very traditional, with a fair amount of whole bunch, wild yeast ferment and no fining or filtering.

The end result is pale in colour but rich in cherry and pine needle flavours, flowing through to a firmish, meatball-demanding finish.

2018 Turkey Flat Butchers Block Red Blend

Take a butcher's at this bargain Barossa blend from Turkey Flat, whose wines are as good as they have ever been.

Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache combine into an enticing mouthful of spicy fruit that finishes long, smooth and satisfying.

It's medium-bodied and relatively soft and there is abundant character in the form of slight rusty earthiness backing up the plush Barossa fruit.

A surefire Barossa daily drinker.

2021 Smallfry Stella Luna Red

Farmed using biodynamic principals, this fresh and vibrant (and aptly named) wine is farmed, picked and fermented in accordance with the cycles of the moon.

These practices make for "soils and wines which are just so much better" according to viticulturist Suzi Hilder. A blend of Cinsault and Shiraz from their own vineyard in the Barossa Valley, this wine is made with a small portion of whole-bunch, without oak and is released young to be drunk young - all the beauty of the vineyard still laid bare for all to see.

This is the perfect red for warm Spring days, and delicious drinking with a slight chill.

2021 Schwarz Wine Co. Growers Grenache

The "Growers" series of wines from Jason Schwarz are grown by trusted friends in the Barossa Valley. This collective of thirteen grape growers form the region form the "backbone of our business", according to Jason.

These wines are made in a fun, easy-drinking style and aim to over-deliver in the value for money stakes.

The Grenache is a playful, blue-fruited little number, with a fresh, plump palate and super-fine silty tannins.

It's a gluggable and perfect for anything from BBQs to pizza nights at home.

2021 White Gate Wine Co. Cabernet Sauvignon

Born and bred locals Chad and Gee Connolly at White Gate Wine Co have diverted from the norm of the 90s and released a softly-delicious, approachable style of Cabernet, that shows the lighter side of the Barossa Valley.

Lightly herbal, with gentle but ripe tannins playing around a succulent cherry/ red fruit core. Lovely length too. The grapes are picked early, whole berry fermented, and don’t spend too much time on skins.

They want to minimise extraction and prioritise a juicer expression, that is all about showcasing the fruit.

2020 Head Old Vine Shiraz

The Old Vine Shiraz is the twin of Alex Head's benchmark Old Vine Grenache.

These wines celebrate the incredible vineyard resources that Alex is lucky enough to work with. The vines that contribute to this release are up to 100 years old. To get fruit from these rare historic sites, made by a talent such as Alex at this price point, shows the remarkable value to be had in Australian wine at the moment.

This is classic Barossa Shiraz - robust, powerful and deliciously opulent.

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 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
