About The Pack

This is a little taste of some of the crazy, inventive and delicious wines being made in the Adelaide Hills at the moment.

It's a region that has evolved a lot over the years, from excellent classically-made cool-climate wines to some the best natural wine in the country, the Hills are alive with a swarth of great producers.

Here is a great cross section of a range of styles from some of the modern stars the Hills at a great price.

2020 Worlds Apart Hope Forest Sauvignon Blanc

"A true elevation of the variety."
Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


Louis Schofield's Sauvignon Blanc comes from the biodynamically-farmed Brackenwood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills.

It's not your average affair from this region, a lick of skin contact and some time in seasoned oak elevating this wine to a place of texture and serious complexity.

If you're looking for classic Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, maybe keep looking but if you're after vivacious, lightly grippy Sauvignon with a wild streak - this will be right in your wheel house.

2019 BK Wines One Ball Chardonnay

This is very much a 'modern' Australian Chardonnay - with the typical Aussie fruit flavours and subtle creamy French oak balanced by minerality, smoke and acidity.

BK has a way with Chardonnay. He loves to pick early looking for tension and crisp acidity as he backbone around which he can drape texture in the form of oak/lees etc.

It's a delicious glass of Chardonnay from a killer, hands-off producer in the Hills.

What's not to love?

2020 Poppelvej Aeventyr Gewurztraminer

The Poppelvej Aeventyr is a bang-on example of Gewurztraminer in skinsy mode.

The fruit hails from the K1 vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Winemaker Uffe let the wild ferment kick for three weeks on skins before pressing. You can see plenty of examples of orange Gewurztraminer that go a little over the top, with the aromatics becoming overly floral and exotic, this somehow maintains its freshness and brightness without becoming a caricature.

This is spicy, dry and refreshing. Such a fun-loving example of the orange wine style, perfect for those new to skin-contact wines.

2019 Adelina Dolcetto Barbera Rosato

Col and Jen at Adelina make a very good fist at an Italianate expression of Rosé/Rosato.

They have had great success with Nebbiolo made in this style in the past - here they take on two other Italian varieties: Dolcetto and Barbera.

It's crisp and nervy with citrus and fresh red fruits. Some wild flowers and plenty of fresh spices fill the air.

If you want dry, savoury Rosé with a bit of grunt, this is a great place to look.

2017 Murdoch Hill Phaeton Pinot Noir

This is the top Pinot Noir in the Murdoch Hill range.

A single vineyard offering from Uraidla in SA, this was fermented as 50% whole bunches - young gun winemaker Michael Downer drawing more smoky/spicy complexity from the fruit with the higher whole-bunch inclusion on this wine.

With 94 points from James Halliday, this is a wonderfully youthful example of the very high quality coming out of the Murdoch Hill cellar at the moment.

2019 Basket Range Wine Cabernet Sauvignon

Sholto Broderick's Cabernet wines are some of his best.

In this slightly warmer part of the Adelaide Hills, the conditions conspire perfectly for Cabernet. Considered growing and a gentle hands-off approach in the cellar gets the very best out of the Broderick vineyard fruit.

This is a supple, mid-weight Cabernet that show wonderful fragrance and delicacy. It's a gorgeous, unique expression of the variety from a young producer truly coming into his own as a winemaker.

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.
