Description

The rise and rise of lower alcohol reds that are begging to be banged in the esky is one of the best modern developments in Australian wine.

From familiar varieties such as Pinot Noir and early-picked Grenache, to the explosive recent popularity of varieties like Pinot Meunier and Gamay, or creative blends that place style at a premium over traditional varietal characteristics - the world of light Aussie reds is one of the most exciting vinous wormholes you can fall down at the moment. Here's the pack to get you started!

  • 2023 Arfion Spring Pinot Noir
  • 2023 Riposte The Dagger Pinot Noir
  • 2022 Unico Zelo Jungle Jungle Dolcetto
  • 2023 Voyager Estate Vivid Red [PF]
  • 2022 Renzaglia di Renzo Nuovo
  • 2023 Sinapius Esme Gamay

2023 Arfion Spring Pinot Noir

Dave Macintosh loves his Pinot Noir in all shades and colours. The thirst for a young, vibrant 'nouveau' style drove him to release this, the Spring Pinot Noir.

For insane drinkability in a Pinot Noir, that's loaded with character, this is one of the tastiest of its style getting around. It features a blend of Pinot fruit from two different vineyards in the Yarra - the Full Moon Vineyard and the Willowlake Vineyard.

It does the job Dave wanted - its irresistible from first sip.

A bouncy Pinot Noir brimming with jubilant fruit, this will keep you coming back for more and more and more. Knock a slight chill into it and guzzle with abandon. Read More

2023 Riposte The Dagger Pinot Noir

How Tim Knappstein manages to make such astonishing wines at bargain prices is one of South Australia's greatest mysteries - but who are we to question when we all get to reap the benefit.

His 'The Dagger' Pinot Noir is bright, bouncy, and full of life. Great everyday-drinking Pinot and made with such finesse. Fresh cherries and berries wrapped in spice, with a juiciness that goes for days.

If you ask us, it's an absolute steal and one of the country's best value Pinots. A real no brainer here - great buying. Read More

2022 Unico Zelo Jungle Jungle Dolcetto

The Jungle Jungle (formerly Cherry Fields) has become one of the most popular wines in the Unico Zelo range over the last couple of vintages, and it's in top form again.

It comes from the Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare Valley, a place Brendan and Laura Carter love sourcing fruit from. When you think Dolcetto you think sweet, fruity reds, but this is anything but.

There's also now some supporting Touriga Nacional from Langhorne Creek, and a touch of Adelaide Hills Nero d'Avola.

Wildly aromatic, vibrantly juicy and surprisingly structural, this is a lot of wine built into not a lot of body. The Carters recommend this wine for "eating with your hands", and 20 minutes in the fridge would do it no harm at all. It's different, yes, but most of all it's just one of those reds that is near impossible to put down. Read More

2023 Voyager Estate Vivid Red [PF]

This is the wine that marked a new chapter in the Voyager story - the first red wine released by winemaker Tim Shand, his brainchild, and a fresh, modern red built for a new generation.

This is a vibrant, and yes, vivid, blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Tempranillo & Merlot, built in a light frame and destined for chilled, warm-weather drinking. It's reminiscent of the lovely, smashable reds Tim made during his time in the Yarra Valley. It's a wine that says, "Drink me now, and drink me with friends in the sun!"

It makes a statement about what Tim's tenure at this historic Margaret River estate is going to look like. Blending tradition with innovation, the old with the new. It's a tantalising preview of what's to come over the coming years for the Voyager label. Read More

“A pure and bold expression of our place in Stevens Valley. Wild, bright and completely preservative-free, it’s fresh as the day and ready for spring.”
- Tim Shand (Chief Winemaker)

95 points
"It’s not about ageability or complexity, Vivid Red is about drinkability and for a lighter-framed style, this is excellent. Don’t be afraid to chill this down in warmer weather. Don’t be afraid to drink it with gusto, and best to do so as it’s preservative free."
- Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2022 Renzaglia di Renzo Nuovo

This is a cracking light red (or dark rose, if you wish) for guzzling around the table in good company.

Made from a blend of Italian, French and Spanish varieties - Sangiovese, Graciano, Vermentino, Cabernet and Tempranillo - that all come together as a highly quaffable, easy-going red built for anywhere, anytime.

Lively, crunchy, herbal and lightly spicy, filled with red berries, it's a great wine to pop in the fridge or esky for extra refreshment. Read More

2023 Sinapius Esme Gamay

This excellent release from Sinapius features fruit from a remarkable Tasmanian vineyard planted by Linda Morice and the late Vaughn Dell in 2013.

Vaughn & Linda were way ahead of the curve to plant Gamay on their 'close-planted' block a decade ago and their foresight is only just now paying off.

It's beautiful, bright and fragrant, a very high-quality early-drinking red with plenty of chalky structure to back up the vibrant red fruits.

The 2019, 2021 and the 2022 vintages all were rated 96 points by the Halliday Wine Companion making it one of the most constantly excellent wines of this variety in the country.

These close-planted vines only yield a very small amount of fruit so it's never available for long. Read More

    Interesting stuff

    Quite a range here, a cracking pinot, one or two not quite my thing, but all definitely worth a try nonetheless.

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.
