About The Pack

Our first ever Loire Valley mixed pack features six of the very best value refreshing wine from this captivating and historic region in central France.

We have five seafood-friendly whites and a cracking Rose, all sourced from across the Loire, and highlighting their most famous grapes and appellations - Muscadet, Sancerre, Anjou, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc....

They are all thrillers, no fillers!

2020 Clos du Tue-Boeuf Vin Blanc

100% Sauvignon Blanc, the "Vin Blanc" is the starting point for Tue-Boeuf's whites. As with the other Vin wines (Rose, and Rouge) this wine is sourced from the organically farmed vineyards belonging to friends of the Puzelat family.

This is Loire Sauvignon that will make you purr with delight, it's chalky and mineral, and not overtly flamboyant. The nose is fruity with citrus and cut pineapple, alongside hints of aniseed. On the palate it is taut and exudes lemony aromas with a long, pleasing finish. 

Wow, this is fresh, tightly wound and compact with lovely zip and directness. So drinkable, it’s refreshing, and satisfying, and a wine to remind us that Sauvignon blanc is so much more than the monostylistic wines that have over-saturated the Aussie market over the past few decades.

2020 Domaine de la Tourlaudiere Bohale Muscadet sur lie

Muscadet is amazing; if you know, you know. If you're not quite around it yet then you really should get your mitts on a bottle of it. It's hard to imagine a better wine pairing for oysters and raw seafood, which sounds like a perfect Aussie picnic to us.

This wonderful appellation on the Western side of the Loire region is home to these thrillingly pure and racy wines. And Loire being the hotbed of natural wine that it is, occasionally we are lucky enough to find some real gems from tiny producers, such as Domaine de la Tourlaudiere. The Bohale is naturally fermented and then rested on lees for several months resulting in a stunning wine. Fresh as you like, green apple and lemon sherbet, trademark mineral zoom and a lovely creaminess from time on lees. If you know, you know.

2020 Salvard Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc

Old vine Sauvignon Blanc from Cheverny near the banks of the might Loire. With honeydew melon and tangy citrus flavours, this a riper Sauvignon than the region normally produces, making it super-attractive at first sniff.

There is no oak involved but plenty of lees-stirring and time in bottle pre-release, so there is also texture and length.

A superb all-round people pleaser.

2021 Arnaud Lambert Saumur Blanc St Cyr en Bourg

The village of Saint Cyr en Bourg is in the Loire Valley’s Saumur region, it neighbours the more famous village of Breze, and is home to twenty hectares of Arnaud Lambert’s vines. This compelling Chenin Blanc is a blend of parcels across the village and a thumbnail sketch of all you can expect from this producer.

Precision, purity, and nerve but never at the expense of fruit weight and texture. Age worthy certainly but by no means impenetrable in their youth, in fact this is positively singing.

Expect citrus and beeswax with earthy undertones and a long salty close.

2020 Thierry Germain Cep by Cep Anjou Blanc

A radical and a lauded spokesperson for his small pocket in the Loire Valley, the fabulous wines of Thierry Germain have turned a spotlight on Saumur-Champigny.

A producer with a commitment or biodynamic farming and the Midas touch in the cellar, Thierry has elevated the status of his region through consistently releasing sublime quasi-Burgundian Cabernet Francs and elegant, finessed Chenin Blancs which are magnetic in their energy and charisma.

This is a lithe, flinty version of Chenin Blanc, with crisp acidity and lovely racy extension of flavour.

It's made to be drunk now and drunk with abandon. It's great with seafood or a fresh salad with a zesty dressing

2020 Francois Chidaine Touraine Rose

Francois Chidaine is a master of Chenin Blanc in the famous appellations of Montlouis and Vouvray but has applied his magic touch to a great value Rose from the greater Touraine region, that is at once succulent and textured.

Wild-fermented, which is rare for Rose, this combines a deep colour, a hearty, fleshy palate and funky feel that makes for a fascinating lo-fi wine.

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.

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).
