About The Pack

This selection of Shiraz showcases some excellent premium versions of the variety from all across the country.

Each of these wines would do very well with a few extra years in the cellar or would drink beautifully now with a good decant. There is a cross-section of cool and warm climate examples on offer here from six excellent producers.

Only a limited amount of packs available, so get in quick!

2021 Adelina McLaren Vale Shiraz

Col McBryde at Adelina wanted to make a Shiraz that was a little different to their usual one - a bit more dark and broody, but still keeping the classic Adelina style.

So Col sourced some certified organic fruit from the McLaren Vale, coming from a ripper site in Kangarilla managed by two impeccable growers, Yanagrra's Michael Lane and Pete Fraser. We all know what great fruit and a deft touch equals.

It's got a focus more on dark fruit flavour than their Clare Valley reds, with chewy tannin and a bit more of a broodiness to its personality. Still inherently Adelina in style, it's something a little different - and incredibly delicious.

2021 Bondar Violet Hour Shiraz

The name 'Violet Hour' refers to the fading light owners Andre Bondar and Selina Kelly saw on the horizon as they picked the last bunches of Shiraz for their first ever release, the 2012 edition of this wine. A violet sky, a beautiful wine, and a new future ahead for the couple and their vines.

The Violet hour tastes as stylish as it looks, it hits that sweet-spot for all red wine lovers - a combination of elegance and power.

The pedigree of the McLaren Vale vineyard is second to none - it's one of the most respected sites in McLaren Vale where Seaview and Blewitt Springs meet. You get the lively, bright blue fruits of the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs with the power and structure of the Seaview terroir. It's a winning combination. The quality of the Shiraz speaks for itself.

Put simply, if you like McLaren Vale Shiraz with a fresh face - this is a must buy.

2021 Lambert Syrah

The Luke Lambert Syrah is always made with a deft touch.

Luke's choice of vineyard in the South-West of the Yarra Valley (some of the coolest terrain in the region) offers him the opportunity to make a wine of unique elegance and finesse.

The continued success of this wine has cemented Luke as one of the true winemaking craftsman of his generation. Luke uses whole bunches to beautiful effect, elevating Yarra Valley Syrah to a spicy, ethereal wine with a quiet confidence.

Once again, this release is beautifully balanced, refined and pure-fruited - all the hallmarks of Luke's signature Syrah style.

2021 Mada Shiraz

Hamish Young's Mada Shiraz is a very seductive wine.

The fruit comes from two vineyards in the Murrumbateman area, one providing incredible perfume, the other contributing underlying power.

Around half of the fruit was fermented as whole bunches, and only around 25% new oak used in the maturation of the wine.

The result is a wine that comes out as the pure essence of silky, slippery Canberra Shiraz. A wine that just oozes sex appeal.

Hamish has not put a foot wrong since starting his own label in 2016, and this gorgeous Shiraz is yet another notch in his belt.

2018 Bests LSV Great Western Shiraz

LSV is Little Smidge of Viognier, or Light Smattering of Viognier, or Less than Smart Vignerons. Anyway, there's 2% Viognier in this powerful and dense Great Western Shiraz from the team at Best's.

In the curious way of chemistry the white wine grape Viognier adds greater depth of colour to the red Shiraz. It's all co-fermented, with the aromatics also gaining a perfumed lift.

With deep, concentrated red and black fruits, and some hefty tannins, this is a bargain for hearty red lovers, a wine of real quality.

2019 Margan Fordwich Hill Shiraz

The Margan Fordwich Hill Shiraz offers wonderfully contrasting flavours of fruity and savoury in a wine that will continue to evolve.

Sourced from a vineyard planted in the 1970s, this wine was fermented using carbonic maceration to emphasise the fruity characters, while some bottle age has now brought out more tertiary, savoury characters. A mix of red and blue fruits still leaps from the glass, paired with some herbal, earthy tones in a medium-bodied drop.

Pair it with steak or a rich pasta or meat-based dish to unlock all the richness and fruit sweetness of this lovely wine.

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.
