About The Pack

For the natural wine enthusiast, this mixed pack is the stuff of which dreams are made.

Featuring wines from four different countries, this is an eclectic mix of wines made by artisans of the world at the top of their game! An absolute tour de force of some of Europe's most sought-after natural winemaking superstars.

It features wines from legendary producers Occhipinti, Christian Tschida, Clemens Busch and Jean Foillard.

2018 Christian Tschida Hokus Pokus

Christian Tschida’s wines never fail to delight with their quirky maverick sense. And his is a completely different expression of Austria’s classic white grape Gruner Veltliner, spiked with a touch of Riesling.

Gentle foot crushing, skin contact, fermentation and ageing in old oak adds glorious depth of colour, structure and lovely texture to this white.

With smokey mellow-yellow pineapple fruit cut by bay leaf herbals, there’s no magic here, just good grapes and a young wine grower with thoughtful care and focus.

2019 Clemens Busch Riesling Trocken LS (Low Sulphur)

LS means Low Sulphur, though 'Let's Swig' is equally appropriate.

In addition to being an organic and biodynamic pioneer Clemens also uses much less sulphur than the norm in Germany, across all his wines. With the LS, he takes that even further, with only around 7-8mg/ litre of free sulphur - trust us, that is low.

This is slightly more loose knit than the main Riesling Trocken, with plenty of juicy acidity, fresh apple and citrus flavours, and it cuts a mean driving, slatey finish.

2018 Cantina Giardino Bianco Chianzano

From the Campania region of Italy comes another wonderful effort from Cantina Giardino. Very much a local blend, consisting of about two-thirds Coda di Volpe and one-third Greco di Tufo, from organically farmed vineyards, some young and some old.

A six day maceration to kick things off before part of the juice goes into chestnut botti and the rest into amphora for fermentation and maturation. Left completely alone for 18 months and then bottled as is.

Despite the short extraction, plenty of colour here, well and truly in the 'orange' spectrum. An array of aromas ranging from citrus and stonefruit right through to dried herbs and nuttiness. Plenty of texture yet still refreshing and energetic, this is one to sit down with, ponder and deeply enjoy.

2018 Jean Foillard Morgon Elles

Fans of Jean Foillard will already know that these wines are in high demand. What they may not know is that this wine was not made by Jean Foillard. No no, this was made by his wife Agnes and her friend Nadine. Clearly there is something in the family - this is utterly spectacular.

It has the typical depth and structure which we have come to expect from Foillard - and from Morgon for that matter - but there is a certain lightness and poise to this which you won't find in the rest of the range. Sour cherries and forest undergrowth abound, with a healthy dose of earthy spices and an enticing softness. This will age for the mid-term, but it won't last long - there is a vitality here which is hard to resist.

2020 Martin Texier Grenache

While Grenache is more common in the Southern Rhone, there are pockets of it in the Northern region. The Texier's vineyards in Saint-Julien-en-Saint-Alban, where the Grenache is grown, are at the southern extremities of the Northern Rhone.

The grapes were harvested from 30-year-old Grenache vines planted in granitic soils full of limestone. The fruit is destemmed but then the stems are added back in to give the wine some savoury characters. After a maceration of one week, the grapes are then stomped by foot.

 With only 12.5% alcohol, this isn't a heavy red but more of a vibrant, fruity quaffer that will pair well with roasted or grilled meat/veggies or anything spicy.

2019 Occhipinti Siccagno

The Mediterranean climate of Sicily, and the sandy red-clay soils of Sicily combine harmoniously to create the ideal climate for growing Nero D’Avola. Combine that with the deft touch of one of the natural wine world’s biggest stars; Arianna Occhipinti and set the dial to 11.

Organically grown off 35+ year old vines, this wine is rustic and modern all at once. Wild, untamed, with bright red berries, balanced out with earthen savoury tones. The unique Sicilian quality that seems so individual and unrepeatable in the new world.

Fine and pleasant tannin gives the wine structure, and a linear path across the palate from start to finish.

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).
