This pack is designed to give you great mid-week drinking while exploring some of the great value table reds from around the world.

If you're just looking for some cellar-savers that you can knock back with ease, this is the pack for you.

2018 Spinifex Papillon

Introducing Papillon - one of the most gluggable reds in the Barossa Valley!

The Spinifex wines cover a wide spectrum, from rich, full-throttled old vine Shiraz all the way to this, a light bodied, energetic Grenache Cinsault blend made for easy day-time drinking.

These styles are certainly in vogue but as usual, winemaking wizard Schell elevates it to another level, utilising incredibly old vines and astute winemaking to add depth and complexity to what is joyously pure red berried fruit.

Papillon is one of our go-to's and just unbeatable value. What a producer Spinifex is.

2018 Piron Beaujolais-Villages

This top value little Gamay comes from a family with over four centuries of history in the Beaujolais region.

Fourteen generations of Pirons have grown and made wine in the area, with the latest, Dominique Piron, having a 40 year legacy of producing top-flight wines from the most iconic Crus. 

Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France dubbed him, "one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, tackling with boundless energy the expression of wines of terroir, vinified in the pure tradition of Beaujolais....”. If you're going to try an entry level Beaujolais, there is really no better place to start.

This is light, crunchy and utterly smashable. The perfect light-bodied red to knock a slight chill into a while away an afternoon.

2016 Maretti Langhe Rosso

Produced by the winemaker behind the famed wines of Mirafiore and Fontanafredda, this is a delicious little Langhe blend that gives you the personality of Piedmonte at just a snip of a price.

This is a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbaera - the region's two hero red varieties - with a mix of traditional and modern winemaking techniques used during production.

It's an unpretentious and totally smashable entry point into the wines of the region, both earthy and brightly fruited.

If you need some quaffing table reds and you love the Piedmontese vibe, buying just doesn't get much better than this.

2017 Pittnauer Pitti Red

Gerhard and Brigitte Pittnauer's wines are some of the best coming out of the Burgenland region at the moment.

These red wines of brightness and insane drinkability have seen him garner many accolades in recent times, including 2014 Winemaker of the Year by Falstaff magazine, the top winemaker award in Austria.

The Pitti Red is an ultra fresh, inviting little blend of native Austrian varieties Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch with a splash of Merlot. It sees no oak whatsoever, the fruit laid open and bare for all to see.

Juicy, berry-packed and moreishly savoury on the finish - here's arguably the best value Austrian red that makes it to Australia today.

2017 Laura Catena La Posta Paulucci Malbec

Dr. Laura Catena's grandfather Domingo was the man many attribute to being the father of Mendoza wine as we know it today.

Laura has taken over her family's business and today is one of the loudest spokespeople on the quality of Malbec from Argentina, her passion, knowledge and vision for the future are revered and respected the world over.

La Posta is a label designed to celebrate the great local growers that form the backbone of the Argentinian wine industry. Each cuvee comes with the name of the family who grew it. Too often it is the winemakers who take the limelight, Laura has made it her mission to make sure these passionate growers get the credit they deserve.

This wine was grown by Angel Paulucci on a beautiful vineyard in Ugarteche. It's basically the perfect everyday Argentine Malbec - full bodied and opulent but delivered with restraint. A delicious wine and great value given the price, the love and the care gone into making it.

2017 Bodegas Pirineos Principio Moristel

Somontano is a cool northern Spanish region at the base of the Pyrenees.

A collective of over 230 small growers in the region banded together under the banner of Bodega Prineos to preserve the local winemaking custom.

Moristel is a red skinned grape found only in this small pocket of Spain. As the families have ripped up and replanted more popular varieties over the years, the variety has almost gone extinct. It now makes up less than 2% of all plantings in the Somontano DO.

This may be the only straight varietal bottling of Moristel you will find anywhere in the world. And it's delicious. It's a rich, chocolatey, slippery red that shows plums, dates and soft, silky tannins. It's a great value curio for those looking for one-of-a-kind wines on the fringe.

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

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?

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).
