About The Pack

There's a plethora of gifted younger generation winemakers rising through the ranks in Australia. 

Here are six excellent examples of the quality coming from the next crop of Aussie winemaking stars. 

A range of styles, a range of regions, a stack of talent and potential in one simple pack.

2019 Vino Volta Funky & Fearless Chenin Blanc

This is the textural, more classic example of Chenin Blanc from the Vino Volta duo.

Garth Cliff and Kristen McGann are really passionate about Chenin Blanc. Showcasing the varieations created from different vineyards and with different winemaking techniques in and around the Swan Valley region. These are 25+ year old vines in the north of the region, from the Rockets vineyard, planted on sandy loam.

It's made in a fairly textural style, focusing in on the waxy, mouth-filling characters that make Chenin so distinctive as a variety.

It's shapely, pithy and very easy to knock back.

2021 The Vinden Headcase Pokolbin Blanc

Part of Gus Vinden's new experimental range is this light, crisp number that is the sum of many parts.

From a single vineyard in Polkolbin this musky, aromatic blend is centred around some fleshy Gewurztraminer, with some more traditional Semillon and Verdelho also in the mix.

Unfined, unfiltered, with a slightly funky under this is an unconventional Hunter white delight.

2021 Mada Wines Nebbiolo Rose

After the bushfire hiatus of 2020, we're back with local fruit for the Mada Rose, specifically Nebbiolo from Young (thanks to Barney at Garagiste for last year's emergency grape delivery..).

This new release has a delicate pale colour, enticing aromas of cherry, raspberry and some herbal spice, and a dry finish that borders on savoury.

There's some partial whole bunch, and a third of the fruit was fermented in old french oak.

The end result is just super Rose drinking, with a classy edge, much like winemaker Hamish.

2020 Hughes & Hughes Pinot Noir

As the demand for fruit in Tasmania increases, so too are the prices. The top value Pinot Noirs are becoming rare as hens' teeth, but here's one that you can fill your boots with if you want a stylish Tassie Pinot that won't bust the bank.

This is fruit from the Coal River, Derwent and Tamar Valleys fermented in small batches in a bunch of different ways. Some whole bunch, some whole berry, lots of experimenting from winemaker Jonathan Hughes to see what works, then finally a blend of the best parts.

It's a great drink and remarkable value. There just aren't many Pinots at this price from the Apple Isle that will deliver the interest and satisfaction of the Hughes & Hughes.

The perfect mid-week Tasmanian Pinot Noir.

2020 Somos Tintito

This is a delicious medium bodied red blend from Ben and Mauricio at Somos wines.

It's a blend of Grenache, Pinot Meunier, Nero d'Avola and a bunch of other bits and pieces built with easy drinking in mind and an 'Italian-ate' feel. The aim here was to create "Vin de soif, made for easy drinking with interest." and they've nailed the MO.

This is a top value little daily drinker and is squarely in no-brainer territory for those chasing a medium-bodied red that is loaded with charisma.

2020 Charlotte Dalton Love Me Love You Shiraz

Winemaker Charlotte Hardy has found a happy home in the Adelaide Hills. Her blossoming Charlotte Dalton wine label is producing hit after hit. One for the 'must-watch' list if you're into the avant-garde of SA wine.

Here, Charlotte tackles Adelaide Hills Shiraz with a gentle touch. The difficulties of the 2020 vintage are apparent in quantity not quality - this is her smallest ever production but the wine is beauty!

It's dizzyingly perfumed, swift and fleet-of-foot through the mouth, this is what cooler-climate Shiraz is all about.

Great mixed pack

Having drunk only half the wines in the pack I am thus far delighted by the selection. They reds have been wonderfully juicy and fresh. The Pinot Gris is a great example of a textural, skinsy white. I am looking forward to drinking the rest very soon!

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.

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).
