2023 Mulline Sutherlands Creek Riesling

From the Strathmore Vineyard, planted in '98, this Riesling thrives in soils of grey-brown clay loams and fragmented granite. It's a delicious slightly off-dry style and great value for money if that's what you're in the market for.

Crafted by Ben Mullen, it strikes the perfect balance, blending fresh acidity with a subtle sweetness. With hints of pineapple and green apple, it's complemented by delicate notes of orange blossom and jasmine.

Ben's gentle winemaking uses natural ferment, with full solids, boasts 10g/L residual sugar and a moderate 11% alc. It's the perfect match for spicy dishes. Please hand me that plate of dumplings... immediately.

"Picked, pressed and fermented cold at 10 degrees and aged on lees for three months; 10g/RS. A very bright green gold. An engaging bouquet of fresh lime juice, orange rind, makrut lime leaf and some spice. Gently textured with the RS judged to perfection, in that it's there, but you barely notice it. The perfect Sunday lunch 'yum cha' wine."
- Philip Rich (Halliday Wine Companion)

2023 Coriole Sandalwood Grenache Gris Piquepoul

Coriole have always been at the front of the pack in McLaren Vale when it comes to championing new and emerging varieties. Here's another excellent example of their forward-looking vision.

This lovely textural white combines the medium-weight rhone white Grenache Gris, with the zippy, crunchy aspects of the seafood-loving Piquepoul.

It's fresh, lively, with a delicious and distinctly saline edge. It's a perfect all-rounder white wine, ready for all seasons.

95 points
"Such an exuberantly expressive nose at pitch-perfect ripeness, with rosy skinned apples, lemon balm, raw quince, orange peel and tart pomelo... Stunning!"
- Marcus Ellis (Halliday Wine Companion)

2023 De Iuliis Semillon

Year after year De Iuliis' early released Semillon is one of the Hunter Valley's true bargains.

We love Mike De Iuliis' classy range of wines and it's great to see such good value from the Hunter. Where some of Mike's more premium Semillon releases are built for contemplation over several years in the cellar, this wine is built for contemplation over several seconds in your glass.

Light, fruit-driven and utterly loveable, this is Hunter Semillon made for drinking, not thinking.

"The quality of this super-expressive lemon, apple and lanolin fruit had its life to live, and transformed itself from chrysalis to resplendent butterfly."
- James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

2023 Oliver's Taranga Small Batch Fiano

Originating from the Campania region of Italy, Fiano is a relatively new variety to Australia. This small batch Fiano has fast become a favourite of the Taranga farm.

With flavours of ripe limes and pear, it's a killer wine for anyone who loves a fresh, crisp white.

Perfect to drink poolside or beachside, or whenever you get a hankering for something other than your typical white wine varieties.

"This wine is one of the very best fianos going around these days... a go-anywhere wine."

2022 Quealy Tussie Mussie Pinot Gris

From the PG Queen comes this classically rich, honeysuckley wine with just 2 grams of residual sugar.

Whole-bunch pressing for texture along with 20% French oak maturation and regular lees stirring, has led to a generous, fulfilling wine.

Tussie Mussie is a north-facing vineyard in Merrick North, planted to Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, rich in red, ferrous soils. This old, iron-rich soil gives a mineral feel that enlivens the wine.

This is a luscious offering of Pinot Gris from Quealy, and it's the perfect wine to enjoy with friends and family while you kick back this summer.

"Luscious on the palate but not weighty, it’s all about texture with creaminess throughout. The flavours linger long and the finish, too."
- Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2022 Nocturne SR Chardonnay

It's becoming increasingly difficult to find good Margaret River Chardonnay at a price point that you can drink any night of the week.

This is part of their Sub-Regional range, exploring the pockets of Margaret River that excite them the most. The Chardonnay fruit for this wine comes from a couple of small vineyards in Treeton, to the north-east of Margaret River township.

If you're familiar with the way these two make Chardonnay, it will come as no surprise that this packs a punch, albeit a slightly more mid-weight example of the variety than you might typically expect from Margaret River.

It's open for business. The perfect wine to scratch the MR Chardy itch when it creeps up on you.

95 points
"Julian Langworthy crafts scintillating chardonnay, this is as good as ever. It starts out tight, linear and citrusy yet unfurls and builds. Hints of stone fruit, creamy nutty lees, and overall, a very pure expression. Moreish and savoury with mouth-watering acidity; it’s long, pure, refined and very classy. Quite effortless – to drink."
- Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

    Great variety of whites

    Really great selection of some stalwart wines of which I'm a regular drinker - delicious Sauv Blanc and Riesling.

    Also enjoyed the addition of some more unusual varieties like the Assyrtiko and Friulano, which I honestly may not have tried but for the pack. Did not disappoint.

    Bargain price for top drops

    Who doesn't love a bargain? A mix of well-known and lesser known brands. But all small batch wines thoughtfully made. Lots to love.

Ordering

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 hello@differentdrop.com 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.
