About the wine

If you're looking for that perfect easy-drinking, all occasions bubbly to have around the house over the festive season - look no further.

'Lois' is a gorgeous Blanc de Blanc Sparkling from one of our absolute favourite Australian wineries The Lane Vineyard. The Lane are forging a reputation as one of the Adelaide Hills' premier producers, and are all about quality and authenticity with every single berry grown on site at their own vineyard.

Their philosophy is to craft premium single vineyard wines that combine the finesse of Europe, the flavour of Australia and the unique characteristics of their vineyard. And if you're ever in the Adelaide Hills do not miss the chance to visit their stunning cellar door and restaurant - it is without doubt one of the most picturesque and memorable winery visits in the country.

So back to the wine! Lois was introduced to the range only a few years back and with great success. As I mentioned it's a 'blanc de blanc' style made entirely from Chardonnay (albeit three different clones), meaning that it is designed to be a fresh, crisp and fruit-driven style. The Lane are home to one the Hills' finest Chardonnay vineyards and the quality shines through here. It really is a deliciously easy-drinking bubbly, is beautifully packaged and very good value.

Chardonnay and Shiraz are what the Edwards family do best, but Bordeaux varieties - red and white - perform strongly also.  With a gorgeous cellar door and restaurant The Lane is well worth a visit, and with their ever-improving range of premium wines they are truly a star Hills producer.

"Light toasty, citrus nose with delightful yeasty characters. Clean zesty palate with a crisp finish."

Wine Business Magazine

"In an ultra-suave bottle, this inaugural release has made quite a splash. Not surprising from one of the Adelaide Hills finest Chardonnay vineyards. Crunchy apples and grapefruit zest are caressed by a creamy bead and a long, clean finish."

Tyson Stelzer (Wine 100)

"Lois Lane is quite flattering in her unashamedly fresh and pale, fruit-focused guise of primary pear, apple and lemon. A simple, well-made aperitif quaffer."

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.

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).
