About

About The Pack

There are many interesting examples of Pinot Gris popping up across the country that prove that there's more than meets the eye to this grape.

Where so many examples found on bottle shop shelves present as neutral dry whites, when made with intent and care, Pinot Gris can have weight, complexity and even a bit of colour!

These are some great examples which cover a wide array of Pinot Gris styles. Top value on offer here from the Gris fiend.

2020 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Gris

Barney Flanders takes his Pinot Gris seriously.

This is closer to Burgundy or Alsace than Northern Italy, with time in barrel and on lees resulting in a really textural wine.

A great modern example of Australian Gris here from one of Mornington's gem producers.

2019 Ocean Eight Pinot Gris

Ocean Eight's Mike Aylward was one of the pioneers of a more 'serious' style of Pinot Gris in Australia.

This wine is picked first and foremost with acidity in mind. With acid providing a scaffolding to the wine, Mike is able to build texture through time on lees and time in barrel to create a fuller-bodied, more complex style of Gris.

It's not an overly unctuous style, but there's plenty of flavour that takes a hold of you.

This is a class act and one of the many reasons that most consider Mornington Peninsula the epicentre of great Pinot Gris in Australia.

2020 Arfion Pinot Grigio

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.

2020 Small Island Pinot Gris

The Small Island Pinot Gris comes from the Glengarry vineyard in the Tamar Valley.

James Broinowski finds a great balance between freshness and texture with this release, it's Pinot Gris delivered in a contemporary style.

It's flush with plenty of succulent pears and green apple character, the fresh, crunchy acidity lending some drive.

Good Gris. Real good. As always with James' wines, a tiny production quantity too.

2019 Nick Spencer Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris here by the hands of the talented winemaker, Nick Spencer.

Nick loves the NSW High Country. For this wine he goes to a high-altitude vineyard in the Hilltops region.

The cool conditions during vintage has produced crisp, elegant Pinot Gris with beautiful mouthfeel.

It's dry, crunchy and very pretty in style. A delicious look at Pinot Gris from one of NSW most exciting emerging producers.

2019 BK Wines Pinot Grigio

In this wine, Brendan Keys is going for a true Grigio style, a wine which is all about texture.

This year's version is more leesy and creamy than previous releases and it's all the better for it.

The fruit from around Lenswood can handle a bit of work, so he leaves it sit on lees for four months prior to bottling.

This is some delicious juice, the wild yeast and hands-off winemaking approach allowing the fruit to do the talking. Sometimes less really is more.

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.
