About The Pack

Finding red wines that a suitable for drinking in the warmer months can be a bit tricky. 

You don't want some 15.0% alcohol monster Cabernet when the sun is shining, you want something cool and refreshing that can be popped in the fridge or the esky for a few minutes to take the edge off.

Here's six reds we'll be drinking this Summer. 

Perfect for any occasion.

2018 Two Tonne Tasmania Ziggurat Pinot Noir

The Ziggurat Pinot Noir from young Ricky Evans is a delicious, highly-gluggable version of Pinot Noir built for early drinking.

This wine is made from two different vineyards that Ricky manages. The fruit from these sites is more red fruited and juicy than his more moody and savoury TMV or Dog & Wolf Pinot Noirs. This fruit is primed for this Cru-Beaujolais-inspired style of wine that Ricky loves to make and drink.

This is about trying to find different expressions of this hallowed variety. Ziggurat is made to be a delicious early drinker, with Gamay-esque mouthfeel and tantalisingly vibrant flavours.

It's downright delicious.

2018 Unico Zelo Harvest Merlot

The Harvest Merlot is part of Brendan and Laura Carter's co-operative with local growers - a partnership rather than a buyer/supplier relationship.

Helping each other out and splitting the rewards. It's a very cool idea. Better yet, the wine is very tasty.

Built as a classic medium-bodied, softly fruited, lifted, juicy Merlot, this totally hits all the right spots. It's just a lovely little drink.

Highly versatile and far too easy to reach for a second bottle, that's the Unico Zelo way.

2017 Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown Pret-a-Rouge

Tessa Brown and Jeremy Schmölzer are getting a lot of things right in their quest to establish their own label. As they wait for their own vineyard to mature they are making the most of some brilliant fruit from the surrounding areas.

The Pret-a-Rouge is a blend of Shiraz, Pinot Noir sourced from Beechworth and the Alpine Valleys. There was no Sangiovese available this year, so the classic 'Hunter Burgundy' blend will have to do.

It's lighter and brighter fruited than previous releases, more red fruit but the classic savoury back-bone that this cuvee has always had.

If you are looking to get familiar with these two, the Pret-a-Rouge is the best place to start.

2018 Ravensworth Gamay Noir

Bryan Martin continues to eke out some of the most interesting wines that NSW has to offer.

This is his fourth crack at the Ravensworth Gamay Noir. Surprise, surprise, it is a belter. When a Tumbarumba grower called him up in 2015 with some fruit on offer, Martin jumped at the chance. And since the epic success of the first release, a wine that James Halliday said, "No gamay has previously been made equal to this in Australia", Martin has only refined his stylings further with this much-loved variety.

This falls under the Ravensworth heading of 'weird stuff'. It's definitely left of center but boy is it dangerously glugable.

If you're looking for something bright and fun to drink over summer, this is going to thrill you to bits!

2017 Gestalt Serotina Grenache Cinsault Shiraz

Top value red from the Clare Valley here by Anthony Pearce and Craig Turnbull.

This is Grenache, Cinsault and Shiraz picked from an old, dry grown vineyard in the Clare. The vineyard is managed organically and at around 450m ASL, is one of the highest vineyard sites in the region.

It's a fresher feeling, more buoyant style of red wine from the region. It's all about the perkiness of the Grenache first and foremost, with the characteristic savoury structure of the Shiraz from the region giving the backbone.

Loads of personality and super approachable as a young red, it can ever handle a slight chill if you are that way inclined.

2018 Dormilona Tinto

Jo Perry continues her quest to make exciting, organically farmed, naturally made Margaret River wines, and this is a terrific introduction.

Don't be fooled by the name 'Tinto' - this is Margaret River Shiraz, but not like we know it...

Margaret River Shiraz has at times struggled for its own identity, but this is a style we love to see. Somewhat of a 'nouveau' release, it's medium-bodied at most, full of vibrant fruit and spice and good, firm structure.

100% whole bunch, 100% whole berry ferment, 100% deliciousness.

It's interesting, it's approachable, it's colourful, it's a bit of a no-brainer to be honest.

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
