About The Pack

The Barossa Valley is about so much more than just big Shiraz these days.

Here are six wines that prove it.

From lighter expressions of Grenache, alternative varieties and more elegant examples of Shiraz, here's a chance to see a different side of the Barossa Valley at a great price!

2018 Frederick Stevenson Hongell Grenache

Steve Crawford works with some great old vineyards across the Barossa Valley.

The BV Hongell Grenache comes from a vineyard just to the south of the historic Barossa sub-region of Tanunda. It was made with 40% whole bunches and zero new oak. Steve looks to capture the personality of each vineyard he works from, here he's done a top notch job.

Mike Bennie was enamoured with the 2018 release, rating it 95 points and praising it's delicate 'Pinot Noir-esque' delivery.

It's Barossa Grenache with a different look. It's light, crunchy, and wickedly drinkable. Grenache fans with a penchant for original expressions of the variety should get on this.

2018 Cirillo Vincent Grenache

The Cirillo Vincent Grenache lays claim year after year to be one of the country's best value Grenache, and the 2018 release is no exception.

Marco Cirillo's family lays claim to the world's oldest Grenache vines, the most ancient of them dating back to 1850. The Vincent is the baby of the bunch made from a blend of 80, 90 and 100-year-old vine material.

Vincent is a charismatic character, just like his maker. It bucks the trend of big, sweet, oaky Barossa Grenache and sits firmly in the bright, cheery and gluggable camp. A portion of whole bunches give it a lifted perfume and silky texture, while the use of older French oak and stainless steel ensure this is a lot brighter and bouncier than many of its Barossa counterparts.

2018 Head Montepulciano

This is one of those perfect 'BBQ reds' that's built for easy drinking.

It's a wine that winemaker Alex Head wants to change people's ideas about what the Barossa is all about. This takes the lusciousness of the Barossa and meshes it to the ripe, spicy characters of the Italian variety, Montepulciano, making a moreish, modern Australian red ready for the guzzling.

It's bright, loves a slight chill in the fridge and is a delicious little bargain for any night of the week.

2018 Izway Mates Aglianico

'Mates' is a wine made as an homage to the friends who've helped Izway along the way.

Under this label, winemaker Craig Isbel takes Aglianico from a brooding, tannic wine into an earthy yet fresh-feeling red ready to drink immediately.

Aglianico is such a great variety for the Barossa and it's doing exceedingly well in Craig's hands.

It's 'Barossa Beaujolais', as they say.

The perfect red to knock back at a BBQ with some mates.

2018 Spinifex Syrah

Pete Schell continues to explore the possibilities with Shiraz/Syrah in his beloved Barossa Valley, and this vibrant and lifted Syrah is a gorgeous drink.

Designed as a more understated and elegant version of Barossa Shiraz, Schell picks fruit from a couple of different, cooler sites in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. The grapes are picked earlier to retain freshness and perfume, before seeing a mixture of stainless steel and wooden and concrete fermenters.

Wild and savoury yet soft and sumptuous, this is Barossa Shiraz unlike we usually see it. Interesting, flavour-packed and moreish, this is another winner from this superstar winemaker.

2017 Powell & Son Barossa Valley Shiraz

This, the 'entry-level' Shiraz from the Powell & Son range gives good insight into their house style.

This fruit from 20+ year old vineyards predominantly in the north of the Barossa is fermented in concrete then sent to huge foudre for maturation before bottling. Oak is used here as a seasoning, not the star of the show, as is the case with many Barossa Shiraz. It's lush, ripe and sweetly fruited while feeling fresh at the same time. 

The finished wine is a moreish, open-faced Barossa Shiraz that enthusiasts of the style will instantly fall in love with.

Great value to be had here for the Barossa Shiraz fan.

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.
