2021 Mercer Wines Vermentino Bianco

"Very good Vermentino here...Nicely done."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)


With its ability to thrive in drought, and its resistance to disease, Aaron Mercer sees Vermentino as the ideal representation for sustainable grape-growing in the future, with the warm-climate Hunter Valley a perfect match for the variety.

Bright and full of citrus freshness, this Bianco from Mercer wines, is fresh and energetic, with nice salinity, good length, and a fresh finish.

It would be easy to envision sipping this on a warm spring afternoon, whiling away lockdown, and imagining the tapas you’d love to be enjoying with it, while drinking at your beach shack getaway.

2019 Bondar Chardonnay

"A thrilling tussle between extract, energy and structural binds"
95 Points - Ned Goodwin (Halliday Wine Companion)


Since his time working at Nepenthe, Andre Bondar has loved Adelaide Hills Chardonnay. Now, with his own label, he has the chance to make it just the way he likes it.

He found a cool little vineyard in Echunga, at 400m ASL, had the fruit picked by hand, pressed it as whole bunches and sent it to barrel and ceramic eggs to ferment at its own pace. Nine months later, this gorgeous little wine emerged. For a guy who owns a vineyard in the heart of 'big reds' country, Andre Bondar knows his way around a Chardonnay as well as anyone.

This release is pure and taut without overt oak or artifice. A truly lovely wine and yet another success for this impressive McLaren Vale outfit.

2021 Unico Zelo Origami Rose

Simply put, Unico Zelo might absurdly drinkable, great value wines, seemingly with no preconceptions or restrictions. They are Iconoclasts who have a blast.

Their first Rose is a blend of Clare Valley Sangiovese, Riverland Grenache and some Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris that saw some light skin contact.

Flavoursome and succulent, with a touch of colour, this is a crunchy dry style with lots of floral aromatics, some strawberry/ raspberry fruit and a vivid acid-driven finish.

Time to bring some Origami into your fold.

2021 Arfion Spring Pinot Noir

Dave Mackintosh's Arfion label has a good track record with this popular grape, and his style really captures the freshness of 'Grigio' with the texture of 'Gris'.

Unlike the vast majority of Pinot Grigio on the market, his is very much hand-made from start to finish. It comes from the Coombe vineyard in the warmer Lower Yarra Valley area - a site with a great track record for Pinot Gris.

The fruit was hand-picked in the cool early morning to retain freshness and concentration, with whole bunches, older oak and some lees stirring adding nice texture and interest.

It's zippy and refreshing on the one hand, chewy and thought-provoking on the other. A quality Pinot Grigio from Dave and super value.

2021 Golden Child Lazy Sunday Light Red

This is one of the most gluggable light and breezy red wines you are likely to come across.

Here, Pinot Noir and Shiraz from James Hamilton's family vineyard in Adelaide Hills, combine forces into a red with unstoppable drinkability. The sweet red fruits of the Pinot, the lovely plump mid-palate of the Shiraz, it's such a winning combination.

Looking for something red to knock back in tumblers on your next picnic?

The Lazy Sunday is your winner.

2020 Mada Syrah Nouveau

The modern Australian Shiraz/Syrah is a much different beast to that of twenty years ago. Thank the wine gods for the evolution of style, it's allowed for great wines like this to come into existence.

Hamish's usual NSW fruit sources were impossible in the bushfire-devastated 2020 vintage so this bouncy red is sourced from the Tuerong sub-region of Mornington Peninsula via good friend Barney Flanders at Garagiste wines.

It's hand picked, with 100% carbonic maceration, and a short spell in both concrete and oak. Soft, spicy and with a satiny palate caress, just a lovely high-toned, low-priced wine for drinking over the next couple of years.

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. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney.
