About The Pack

Leaving aside Retsina, the great Greek wines are made from native varieties such as Assyrtiko, Xinomavro and Limniona.

We've put together a tremendous Explore Greece Premium Pack that includes fantastic expressions of these three grapes from the very best relevant producers - Sigalas, Thymiopoulos and Zafeirakis.

It's a trio that represents the very best of artisanal Greek wine agriculture, and should be welcome at any connoisseur's dinner table or cellar.

2021 Sigalas Assyrtiko Santorini

The Sigalas Assyrtiko Santorini is a wine that will truly make you feel like you're living it up on a Greek island. With its bright acidity and pronounced minerality, it evokes the sea and the terroir of Santorini with every sip. There are lovely flavours of citrus and stone fruit (particularly peach). 

As the wine ages, it develops notes of honey and petrol (yes, in a good way), much like an aged Riesling. Naturally, as the wine is completely dry, it is a great choice to have with seafood, or any rich dishes with poultry or creamy sauces.

2019 Thymiopoulos Alta Xinomavro

Xinomavro is the main red grape used in northern Greece, where it's regarded as the finest fruit for making elegant red wines.

This offering from Thymiopoulos is just that - an elegant and fine red. It entices you with fragrant aromas of red berries, then surprises with a one-two hit of tannin and acidity.

If you've never had the pleasure of enjoying a Xinomavro, this one is a reasonably priced entry point. It might be hard to pronounce, but its certainly easy to drink!

2019 Zafeirakis Limniona

Winemaker Christos Zafeirakis is singularly focussed on reviving ancient varietals, and if this Limniona from his family estate is any indication, his endeavour is more than worthwhile.

Looking at this wine, it’s not crazy to suggest that it truly is Greek Pinot Noir. His wine is unique with quite a refined approach. It has an intense nose of juicy red berries, with tea notes, and an earth herbal element completing the aromatic bouquet. On the palate there is refreshing acidity and silky tannins, with red fruits and the same earthen botanical mix, which lingers long into the finish.

Such a soft, approachable red with a delicate texture. This has the potential to age gracefully, becoming ever so much more Burgundian with each passing day.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
