2023 Rieslingfreak No. 3 Clare Valley Riesling
The Rieslingfreak No. 3 is John Hughes' outstanding value Clare Valley Riesling.
The Clare Valley is John's home. This wine captures the essence of the region. This comes from John's home vineyard, and it's the wine he watches closest from vine to bottle.
Firm, steely but with a generosity that makes this a delicious drink now or primed for decades in the cellar. An absolute bargain and a must have for all lovers of Australian Riesling.
"A serious Clare Riesling for a bargain price"
- 92 pts, Andrew Caillard MW (The Vintage Journal)
"Intense, near bone-dry, but not austere. Delicate and refined. Balanced and very accessible young."
- 92 pts, Huon Hooke (The Real Review)
2022 Mulline Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc from Mulline checks all of the boxes for the variety, and at a very reasonable price point too.
It uses fruit from two different vineyards in Geelong, that then get fermented and matured in different vessels - some in old oak to build texture, some in tank to give some steely zing.
Botanicals, snow pea, soft and delicate fruit with a chalky texture, finishing dry and keeping your mouth watering for more.
"The palate is bright and gently textured, and this very well-put-together wine finishes long and precise."
- Philip Rich (Halliday Wine Companion)
2021 Billy Button The Delinquent Verduzzo
This is something out there from the Billy Button camp!
Verduzzo originates from Friuli in North-East Italy, and it's pretty much an unknown quantity here. Jo Marsh, head-honcho at Billy Button, describes it as "The red drinker's white, a full bodied style with structured phenolics." which sums up the variety's character quite nicely.
This is a wonderfully savoury and structural wine with a completely unique set of flavours. Each iteration from Jo has been better than the last as she becomes more familiar with this variety. This vintage is no exception.
If you're looking for a food-friendly wine with a point of difference to wow your dinner guests, this is a great option.
2023 Somos Fiano & Amigos
Fiano & Amigos is a fresh, textural bargain from Mauricio Cantu at Somos Wines.
The 'Amigos' are a little splash of Perocino(!) and a splash of Pinot Gris which combined make up about half of the blend, Fiano with a couple of days skin contact being the other half.
It's made for lazy Sunday sessions by the pool - it's not overly complicated but it is very satisfying and great alternative when you're looking for affordable, smashable whites that won't bust the bank.
"We wanted to make something fresh and fun to enjoy during the summer, but also something that is inherently interesting."
- Mauricio Cantu
2022 Yangarra Estate Blanc
Yangarra Estate are absolutely one of our very favourite producers and a winery that is making serious waves in the Australian wine industry.
This is the beginning of a large project for the Yangarra team.
Yangarra have every one of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape varieties planted on their Blewitt Springs vineyard. The plan is to eventually produce a blend from the 13 varieties allowed to grow in the famous French region. This white blend is the first step along the way.
It's a medium-bodied, savoury white wine with fresh, glassy texture and a briny finish. The perfect all-round food wine. An exciting, great value release from this McLaren Vale juggernaut.
"It’s a little bit juicy, with white fleshed fruit, some bright tangerine acidity and flavour, plenty of chalky texture, and a dusty and subtly nutty/briny/lemon peel finish of excellent length. I really like it."
- 94 pts, Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
2023 Dr. Edge Chardennui Chardonnay
According to winemaker Peter Dredge, 'Chardennui' is the "not so normal" Chardonnay in his wide range of Chardies. But, just like normal, it delivers up interest and deliciousness in spades.
It comes from a blend of fruit from three different vineyards across the Tamar Valley and East Cost regions of Tasmania, with the fruit all foot-stomped and partially fermented on skins. It even has a dash of Riesling thrown in!
All in all this is fresh, fun and flavour-packed Chardonnay, but get in quick as it won't be around for long.

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.
Some things to keep in mind:
- Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
- The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
- We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
- We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
- It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.
- It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.
We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.
At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!
No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.
We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.
To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you.
If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call and we can try and help.
If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
