About The Pack

This pack gives you a taste test of a selection of natural wines from around the world.

From some of the oldest traditional winemaking practices to modern innovators who are stripping back the artifice of contemporary winemaking, this pack will take you on a wild ride of minimal-intervention winemaking from six different countries.

It contains a mix of Pet Nats, whites, ambers and reds that are a bucketload of fun to explore.

2019 La Violetta Patio Nat

There's never a dull moment in the winery with AJ Hoadley. He's constantly on the hunt for something new.

Here's a brand new Pet Nat release, built with Patio drinking in mind.

This is Riesling and Muscat from the Great Southern in all their fizzy, flighty, cloudy glory. It's hyper floral and crazy drinkable.

'Don't think, just drink' is the message here from Hoades and he's nailed the style.

2012 Jean Bourdy Cotes du Jura Blanc

Jean Bourdy's family have grown and made wine since 1475.

His wines are heralded as some of the best value naturally made wines in France. From his small vineyard just to the south east of Burgundy's Cote D'Or, he produces insanely complex and thrilling Chardonnay, Pinot Noir Trousseau and Poulsard.

The Blanc is a Chardonnay that packs a serious punch. With a core of steely acidity, some intense sulphide funk and powerhouse fruit, this is closer to a white Burgundy than your classic flor-y Jura.

Often compared to some of the great Premiere and Grand Cru whites of Burgundy but at a considerably lower price, whether you are a fan of natural wine or fine wine or both this is absolutely worth a look.

2017 Pheasant's Tears Rkatsiteli Bodbishkhevi

Pheasant’s Tears was founded in 2005 by American John Wurdeman and Georgian local Gela Patalishvili, with a mission to preserve the ancient traditions of Georgian winemaking for the next generation.

The history of Georgian winemaking stretches back over 6000 years, though many of the old techniques were being lost to modernity. John set up his winery, complete with qvevris (an earthenware fermenting and ageing vessel similar to amphora that is buried in the ground) up to 200 years old and set about producing wines that tell a rich cultural picture of the country and its history.

This is a skin-contact white wine made from one of the many indigenous varieties unique to Georgia. It spends up to six months on skins buried in the ground before release without any additions or subtractions during the winemaking regime.

It's a spicy, exotic, textural orange wine with crystalline acidity and a wild personality. A great example why the Pheasant's Tears wines have rejuvenated interest in Georgian wine the world over.

2018 Tinto de Rulo Pipeno Pais

Tinto De Rulo is a small, boutique operation that was formed when three friends pooled their money to make a small batch of wine together.

They now produce around 1200 cases a year, this is one of the smaller wines in their production.

Pais is a native Chilean variety that makes light, breezy, crunchy red wines. When made with no additions whatsoever, as is the case here, it makes wonderfully vibrant lighter-bodied reds with loads of energy.

This organically-grown version is super drinking. Light, nervy and a hell of a lot of fun to drink, if you're looking for an interesting red you can knock a chill into, this is a great bet.

2016 Suertes del Marques 7 Fuentes El Lance

Wines from the Canary Islands, you say? Where's that?

The Canary Islands lay off the western coast of Morocco but are officially part of Spain. Some of the vines on these islands were planted over 200 years ago or more, some say. Regardless, there's a rich history of producing wines on these small volcanic islands and there's a new generation making waves releasing modern, energetic wines from their ancient viticultural resources.

Jonatan Garcia Lima with his label Suertes del Marques is one such producer. A hands-off approach to his craft is yielding tense, exotic wines of singular character. They really are like nothing we have tried before.

This red blend combines two native varieties: Listán Negro and Tintilla into a smoky, earthy, meaty red with a wild streak. If you're an adventurous wine drinker, these wines need to be on your radar - wines from the Canary Islands are a unique experience to drink.

2016 Alberto Oggero Sandro d'Pindeta

Growing up, Alberto Oggero would often follow his grandfather Sandro through the vines

It sparked a life-long love affair with making wine from his home area of Roero. He studied oenology in Alba, gaining the technical skills to compliment his passion. And in 2009 Alberto took over his grandfather's vineyard, eventually fulfilling his long-time dream of restoring the old family house and cellar.

He now lovingly tends to 3 hectares of vines across his home. This Nebbiolo is an ode to his grandfather. It's brought to life in concrete, released young and fresh. The perfect pulpy, nervy Nebbiolo to sink your teeth into young.

A flat out delicious wine with a great story that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. What's not to love?

FaQs

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

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.
