About The Wine

Young German-born Julia Weirich is a well-travelled woman in the world of wine.

After covering vintages in Burgundy at Le Grappin, Bass Phillip in Australia, and Yealands in New Zealand, Julia is now making a small amount of Barossa Valley wine, alongside the skilled and experience team of Simon Cowham and Corey Ryan at Sons of Eden.

Her goal is to craft, "Fine, modern and silken with typical Barossa varietal characters.", and her first releases are off to a great start.

Her 2017 Shiraz is right on the money. It's loaded with delicious ripe fruit, dripping in regional character and has easy drinking appeal. The influence of a little fruit from the Eden Valley giving more lift and spice in this release. 

A gorgeous sumptuous version of Shiraz from this part of the world.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Brave Souls is the creation of Julia Weirich, in collaboration with Simon Cowham and Corey Ryan of Sons of Eden.

German in heritage but gypsy at heart, she has worked all over the world, honing her skills in wineries including Bass Phillip in Australia, Yealands in New Zealand, Le Grappin in Burgundy and Mulderbosch in South Africa. Upon her return to Australia, Julia set upon a plan to make wine for herself. Having known her for some time, Simon & Corey, the well-known dynamic team behind Sons of Eden, stepped in to help Julia realise this great adventure in the Barossa Valley.

We encountered a nearly perfect growing season in the Barossa, that caused slow, steady ripening and acidity retention while flavours could develop fully. The '17 reds are wonderfully expressive of their varietal and terroir origins, elegant and feminine with the freshness of some Eden fruit lifting the wines up to new spheres.

Halliday Wine Companion

"A lesson in invoking the depth, texture and structure of quality Barossa wine without hitting you over the head. Yes, it's full-bodied, but moves with a certain grace between its pillars of blackberry fruit, firm yet friendly tannins and a whisk of oak." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
