About The Pack

Here's a selection of cool white wine that will get you through the sweltering Summer months.

The pack is filled with a range of styles and a mix of varieties, but the one thing that they all have in common is that they are just too damn easy to drink.

From crisp Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc through to textural Chenin Blanc and a gorgeous small-batch Chardonnay from Tonic, this pack has all bases covered at an excellent price.

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.

2021 The Vinden Headcase An Ocean In Between The Waves Semillon

Crunchy, racy, limey, searing. you get the picture of this stunningly lovely Hunter Semillon.

This differs from the Headcase Semillon as it was entirely aged in a large concrete egg and had some extended fine lees contact.

But this doesn't feel overly broad and leesy, it's tightly coiled and ripe for juicy current drinking or a spell in the cellar.

To quote Gus Vinden it's, "my favourite Semillon I've ever made."

2021 Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling

96 points

"A beautiful young riesling." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

 

The Polish Hill River Riesling comes from a single block in the Polish Hill sub-region of the Clare Valley.

John Hughes thinks this vineyard produces the best fruit of all his vineyard sources.

There's an extra level of intensity here. That classic iron bar of acidity as a spine, the chalky crunch of a green apple, wonderful perfume and glorious purity.

This sits comfortably alongside the best wines from this famous sub-region of the Clare.

2020 Varney Wines Entrada Verdelho

This crisp Verdelho is the kind of wine you would be very happy to sip on a Portuguese beach. It's a chill it and kill it kind of wine, all fresh and fruity and frisky with bright acidity.

Alan Varney has spent time making wine in Portugal, and he expertly draws those experiences to craft his excellent value range of Entrada wines.

The Verdelho is sourced this year from the Bremerton vineyard in Langhorne Creek. Juiciness is the order of the day here!

2019 Vino Volta Nothing Wrong With Old School Chenin Blanc

Of the four unique Swan Valley Chenin Blanc expressions from Vino Volta, this is the one that's presented straight down the line.

It's as clean and simple as Garth and Kristen can make. They want this wine to showcase the purity and brightness of fruit that great old Chenin vines can make, when given the chance.

It's fresh, fruit-forward, crisp and tingling with energy. Think Chenin Blanc presented like Clare Valley Riesling or Hunter Valley Semillon and you're heading in the right direction.

Full of fruit, refreshing and delicious. Sometimes it's the simple things in life that are the best.

2021 Ponting First Session Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

92 points

"It shouts out its refreshment credentials while easing into the comfy armchair of ‘classic’ sauvignon blanc characters."
Mike Bennie (Wine Front)


The first session of a Test match, it’s all about setting the tone, laying the foundations for the 5 days ahead. For Ricky, it was a special time of bonding and coming together.

This wine is aimed to provide that same sort of starting point, whether it’s while you’re cooking dinner, or welcoming friends over for a BBQ, this Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect way to kick things off.

As varietal as it comes, zesty, fresh with great acidity, the nose is all citrus and passionfruit, with the palate, there is more of the same. Grassy, herbaceous, clean and oh so crisp. This wine is exactly what you expect, a great representation of the varietal, in a regionally classic way.

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).
