About The Pack

Shiraz is our most famous vinous export - it's what we're known for and we do it oh so well.

From the robust, concentrated wines of the South Australia to the more elegant, spicy examples from cooler regions, Shiraz just loves it here.

Here are six excellent every-day drinking Shiraz for a bargain price.

You will cover a wide range of regions, styles and price points all from the comfort of your home. At this price, you won't find a better mix of Aussie Shiraz anywhere in the country.

2018 De Iuliis LDR Shiraz Touriga

There is a great sense of tradition and heritage in the Hunter Valley which is quite romantic, but Mike De Iuliis, along with some of his contemporaries are doing great things to advance the local industry into uncharted waters.

The LDR (Lovedale Road) Shiraz Touriga is a blend of Shiraz fruit sourced from their iconic Lovedale Road vineyard, planted by Joss De Iuliss in 1990 and 20% Touriga Nacional (a Portuguese variety, traditionally used in fortified wines) which Mike asked Joss to plant after being inspired by an SA winemaker friend’s use of the variety.

This wine just works. The earthy/red fruit characters of Hunter Shiraz meets the floral aromatics and structure of Touriga Nacional. Looking for a different red that still feels familiar? Try the LDR, it’s an absolute home run from Mike, and we hope we see more like it!

2018 Yangarra Shiraz

Yangarra Estate are absolutely one of our very favourite producers and a winery that is making serious waves in the Australian wine industry.

Being a hero for the McLaren Vale region, both Shiraz and Grenache are their specialties. Peter Fraser loves working with the old Shiraz vines on the estate and has perfected his style here over the last few years. This is now consistently one of the most bankable Shiraz in the Vale.

It has become a beacon of value for those looking for a wine of serious quality that won't bust the bank account.

If you love Shiraz, if you love McLaren Vale, if you love wine at all, you should buy this. It will delight now or in a decade's time.

2019 Swinney Syrah

A fantastic example of Syrah here from the Swinney family and the crack team of Rob Mann and Lee Haselgrove.

While Western Australian Cabernet Sauvignon gets the lion's share of attention, Shiraz when grown in the right spot can excel, particularly when grown and tended by someone as knowledgeable as Lee Haselgrove.

This is a brilliant Syrah. It's spicy, intense and powerful, ready to drink now or in a decade's time. Rob Mann has brought a wealth of experience to the Swinney operation since coming on as winemaker in 2018 and every ounce of his skill is on show here.

As Gary Walsh said in his 94 point review, it's quite simply "Excellent. Savoury. Regional. Quite the looker.."

2019 Spinifex Bete Noir

Husband and wife team of Peter Schell and Magali Gely have extensive winemaking experience in the south of France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals.

Unlike most of Spinifex's wines, 'Bete Noir' is 100% varietal, in this case, Shiraz.

But unlike many big and bold Barossa Shiraz, with 30% of the fruit coming from the Barossa's cooler neighbour Eden Valley this wine has remarkable perfume, elegance and balance.

This has a distinctive 'old world' feel with the vibrancy of South Australian fruit. A wine with an impeccable track record for a true Shiraz connoisseur.

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.

2018 S.C. Pannell Syrah

"The closest yet to a favourite French style, St Joseph."
Steve Pannell, Owner/winemaker


Since winning the Jimmy Watson Trophy with the 2013 vintage, this Adelaide Hills Syrah has become one of the most sought after wines in the S.C. Pannell range.

This will be the final vintage of the Adelaide Hills Syrah and Steve believes it's the closest yet to the coveted "St Joseph style".

It comes from a stunning vineyard in Echunga, in the south of the Adelaide Hills. Like all of Steve's wines it is built around bright fruit and beautiful tannins, and in a warmer season like 2018, it really sings.

This is the embodiment of modern cool-climate Syrah. A classy and sophisticated wine driven by perfume and spice. For the final vintage of this wine, it's going out with a bang!

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.

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.

Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
