2018 Domaine Eric Louis VDP Sauvignon Blanc

Four generations deep in Sancerre, today the enterprising Eric Louis leads his family estate.

The compound interest of such rich local history? They’ve accumulated over 35 hectares of vineyards, across 3 villages of Sancerre and 60 distinct parcels, meaning even this junior bottling is expressive and lively.

With its heady ripe notes of passionfruit, lifted by green apple and kiwi zest, this is fleshy, fresh and sophisticated Sauvignon.

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.

2020 Kerri Greens Pinots de Mornington Rose

The Quealy family have been one of the country's leading producers of Pinot Gris for some years.

Here, Tom McCarthy, son of Cathleen Quealy, takes the charms of Pinot Gris from the Peninsula and combines it with its genetic cousins Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The end result is a striking pink wine born of red and white grapes that drinks like a charm.

It's a red berry paradise in a glass. Delicious warm-weather drinking here with a bit of funk and interest.

2019 Arfion Willowlake Vineyard Pinot Noir

This is another excellent Pinot Noir release from one of the region's brightest boutique producers in Arfion.

The Willowlake vineyard that supplied the fruit for this Pinot is one of the most highly regarded in the Yarra. The cooler conditions, steep south-facing slopes and ancient volcanic red soils result in fruit with detail, elegance, perfume and fine structure.

Forty percent of the fruit was fermented as entirely whole bunches, the remainder completely destemmed.

This is a beautifully easy, gentle Pinot that unravels itself in the glass. Charming, intriguing wine with not a hair out of place.

2019 Dominique Piron Beaujolais Brouilly

Fourteen generations of Pirons have grown and made wine in Beaujolais, 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....”. His expression of Brouilly shows all the charm and easy-drinking appeal that the Cru is famous for.

Brouilly is the fleshier, more supple of the Dominique Piron Crus.

It's a slightly richer, softer and more supple wine than the powerful Morgon or the mineral-charged Fleurie. It's perhaps the most approachable immediately and this is a very successful vintage of this cuveé.

2020 La Petite Vanguard Corsair Red Blend

"It’s an altogether good wine offering a bit of extra interest."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)


This is a divergent wine away from the typical Vanguardist MO of interesting takes on McLaren Vale and Clare Valley classics.

The Corsair is a blend of three Portuguese red varieties, typically found in the famous fortified wines of the Douro. Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, and Tinta Roriz having a party here. And they are having a great time.

The wine is medium-bodied, blue fruited and flecked with all matter of exotic spices. It's a lovely little red to take you on a trip away from the usual world of Australian reds. It's a fun and perky and lovely to drink.

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.
