About The Pack

This mixed pack of Australian wines perfectly encapsulates what we do here at Different Drop.

It gives you a look at six artisan winemakers who we think exemplify the modern Australian wine industry.

These are the kind of wines that we drink every day. They are made by some of our closest partner wineries, producers who we believe are at the head of the pack at the moment.

It's brilliant value. Test drive the DD experience with one of these bad boys!

2021 Rieslingfreak No.4 Eden Valley Riesling

John Hughes has a deep love of Riesling.

His unwavering commitment to it has seen him become one of the country's finest artisanal producers of the variety.

This is his Eden Valley Riesling. The fruit is sourced from three vineyards between Eden Valley and Flaxman’s Valley.

It's made in a dry style, looking to capture the sublime characters of these brilliant vineyards. The quality is clear, the expression is pure.

This is Eden Valley Riesling in top form. A deadset bargain for any Riesling fan.

2019 Tonic Wines Chardonnay

Few wineries enjoy the feverish scramble for their new releases like Tonic Wines. And the fever is well deserved.

They make painfully small batches of wine and with the excellent quality and value over the last few vintages, it's no surprise.

This Chardonnay is sourced from the Bowe-Lees vineyard in Woodside, Adelaide Hills. The 2019 vintage spent 24 hours on its skins before being basket pressed to barrel where it lay untouched, unstirred on lees for around 9 months. No malo.

Simple yet incredibly successful winemaking. With only a small allocation available, this may be your last chance to try this fascinating take on Chardonnay. Don't hesitate.

2020 Unico Zelo Esoterico

A favourite amongst those who've tracked the Carters from the beginning: the Esoterico is the wild child of the UZ range...

With Brendan and Laura's experience with this style of wine a little richer now, the execution of this skin contact white is on another level.

Supercharged aromatics from the Zibibbo, Moscato Giallo, Gewurztraminer & Greco, with a little boost to the mouthfeel from their old friend Fiano. They nailed the recipe this year.

It's orange in colour and cloudy as all get out, it lives up to its esoteric name but with oodles of drinkability. That's what these skinsy whites should all be about.

2019 Garagiste Merricks Cuve Beton Pinot Noir

A constant tinkerer and experimenter, Barney Flanders is always looking to understand Pinot Noir just a little bit deeper.

Cuve Beton is an investigation into the effect of concrete as a fermenting and ageing vessel rather than oak as is traditional for Pinot Noir.

The results surprised even Barney, himself.

The fruit is all from Merricks but it looks disticntly different to the straight Merricks bottling. This is more about flowers and pretty things rather than the earth and power you usually see in Merricks. The tannin here too is a highlight. Dare I say it, more 'Nebbiolo-esque' than Pinot in the traditional sense.

It's an awesome wine and bucketloads of fun to drink.

2020 Bondar Junto GSM

In only a few short vintages this dynamic couple have carved out a niche for their eponymous label as one of the most exciting and in demand wineries in McLaren Vale.

Drinkability is writ large across the range. The 'Junto' (Spanish for 'together') is a wine made for easily enjoying with friends and family. The 2020 version is just as good as ever.

This is as delicious as medium-bodied reds get from this part of the world.

Incredibly versatile and impossibly more-ish, Andre and Selina have done it again.

2020 Swinney Syrah

"Serious red, seriously good."
Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


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.

Worth the Experience

The Tonic Grenache is my go to wine from this pack but the Two Tonne Pinot Noir blew me away. We went to a BBQ and brought this bottle out first up to try and we wish we had more to follow.

With a juicy steak off the barbie and refreshing salad relaxing in the afternoon sun with a cool breeze coming off the river, it was an experience to remember.

Great wine!

Discovered some great wines in this selection

Excellent range with difference but overall all quality drops, unlike some packs there were no “fillers” - ie wines that you wish you hadn’t opened that can’t be sold on their own merits - and a few outstanding ones that I will order more of.

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. 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).
