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 Adelina McLaren Vale Shiraz

Col McBryde at Adelina wanted to make a Shiraz that was a little different to their usual one - a bit more dark and broody, but still keeping the classic Adelina style.

So Col sourced some certified organic fruit from the McLaren Vale, coming from a ripper site in Kangarilla managed by two impeccable growers, Yanagrra's Michael Lane and Pete Fraser. We all know what great fruit and a deft touch equals.

It's got a focus more on dark fruit flavour than their Clare Valley reds, with chewy tannin and a bit more of a broodiness to its personality. Still inherently Adelina in style, it's something a little different - and incredibly delicious.

2021 Garagiste Cotier Serene

Cotier is the fun second label of Barney Flanders of Garagiste, that offers him a chance to play around and experiment a little more than usual. And believe us when we say the results are wildly delicious.

This wine, the Serene, is a blend of red and white varieties - Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris - and transforms them into a bottle filled with pure light and juicy playful fun.

Strawberries, red apples, a little bit of spice and tang - it's mouthwatering stuff. Serve it chilled for extra drinking delight.

2021 Mada Rouge

This is a great new addition to the Mada range from Hamish Young.

This is the red equivalent of the Mada Blanc - it's a wine custom built for versatility and easy drinking. Hamish blends Shiraz, Cabernet and a good whack of Nebbiolo to create this svelte drop. It's ballistically good to drink.

It smells of dried herbs and bright red berries, there's a real 'pop' to the flavour in the mouth.

If you are looking for a red that will find its place at any occasion, bingo - you've found it.

2021 Rieslingfreak No. 11 Mosaik Eden Valley Riesling

John Hughes is all about showcasing his love for Riesling, and he's passionate about showing off the diversity of the variety. This wine, his No. 11 Mosaik Riesling, is absolutely a wine to behold.

John got a little bit creative and wild with this expression - taking fruit from the Eden Valley, then ageing the wine in seasoned French oak for about a year. The result is magnificent - expect the typical Eden Valley Riesling flavours, like delicate florals, a lip smacking line of acidity, zesty citrus and finishing refreshingly crisp and racy. But the time spent in oak has given it an extra layer of complexity and the addition of a beautiful, mouth-filling, silky texture.

Overdelivering in the value for money department, this is an outrageously delicious and complex wine. Riesling lovers, you can't miss this.

2021 Unico Zelo Esoterico

A real cult 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've certainly nailed this recipe, and it's no wonder it's become such a cult favourite for fans of this South Australian duo.

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

2020 Brash Higgins R/SM Riesling Semillon

The ‘R/SM’ is Brash Higgins' single vineyard “field blend” of two of the most underrated white varieties in the country, Riesling and Semillon.

The two varieties are dry grown side by side on a tiny vineyard in the Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale. They're picked on the same day, basket pressed and co-fermented in old French barriques. These two varieties strike a remarkable balance and harmony.

It's the ultimate summer wine, refreshing and mouth wateringly delightful. It'll keep you coming back for more.

    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.

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.

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.
