About The Pack

We'll be Live on Instagram at 8:00pm on Thursday 16th September!

2020 Murdoch Hill Artisan Tilbury Chardonnay

Murdoch Hill's 'Artisan' series is where winemaker Michael Downer has spread his wings in the family range.

Coming from a single vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley sub-region of the Adelaide Hills, the Tilbury Chardonnay is whole bunch and whole berry fermented, with older French oak, only partial MLF and loads of 'solids work' giving the wine weight and complexity without ever feeling 'over-worked'.

If you love your premium Hills Chardonnay then this needs to be on your dining table. It's terrific.

2019 Murdoch Hill Phaeton Pinot Noir

97 points

"The palate is just so crunchy and vibrant, delivering sleekly refined tannin and almost paper-fine texture. Long, fresh and intense."
Nick Stock (JamesSuckling.com)


This is the top Pinot Noir in the Murdoch Hill range, and is now entirely sourced from the cool Piccadilly Valley from two vineyard sites, one at Mount Lofty and one in Ashton.

Despite the warm vintage, this is a fine, fragrant Pinot, full of florals and red fruits, with pomegranate and cranberry flavours galore. Ethereal, featherweight but with some delayed savoury length and power.

Full of character and always highly rated by the critics, this is surely one of the finest Pinots in the Hills.

2018 Murdoch Hill Landau Syrah

Michael Downer is the embodiment of the young Australian winemaker, boldly taking his family winery into new territory. His latest releases are some of his best work to date.

This Syrah from their home-owned Oakbank vineyard is an excellent example of Shiraz variety grown in a cooler climate. It's a wine of detail, it is expressive and evocative. It's classy cool-climate Syrah, the way it's meant to be.

This wine combines a great site with thoughtful winemaking; a winning combination and a tantalising example of things to come from this exciting Adelaide Hills operation.

Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

Strict government health and safety requirements and very high parcel volumes are causing significant backlogs at the main NSW and VIC sorting facilities. Orders are still arriving safe and sound but you may notice slower delivery times and less frequent scanning updates than usual.

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).
