About The Wine

The Arras Brut Elite is one of the country's go-to premium sparkling wines.

It's a rolling vintage wine which has a staggeringly consistent track record. It's fresh and lively, sporting slight reductive notes and the thumbprint of the country's most iconic sparkling winemaker.

It's tight yet full flavoured, a quality sparkling at a brilliant price that will scrath the itch for quality fizz without busting the bank.

About House of Arras

Ed Carr is Australia's most decorated sparkling winemaker.

In 1988, Carr began the House of Arras sparkling program. It was the beginning of a project that would become Australia's most respected sparkling label.

Sourcing fruit from all across Tasmania, Carr has a level of craftsman ship and expertise that puts him squarely in with the elites of the elites in sparkling wine.

His list of accolades are too numerous to mention but suffice to say, more than three decades on, his vision of creating truly world-class bubbles from Australia has been fully realised.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"49% Pinot Noir, 42% Chardonnay and 9% Pinot Meunier are sourced from across Tasmania, Derwent Valley, Pipers River, Coal River and the East Coast. Juicy peaches and raspberries, lemons, strawberries, kumquats and redcurrants combine with brioche, chocolate, vanilla, almonds, crushed oyster shells all combine in a complex and serious sparkling. It is delicious now but I would be interested to see this wine with a bit more age on it. There is still so much freshness here and real room to grow. I shall be watching the Brut Elite closely over the years to come, it’s going to be a very interesting development. Watch this space…" - Curly Haslam-Coates (The Wine Front)

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 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).
