About The Pack

Here we have a mix of six different wine styles to take you into the interesting world of South Africa wine.

We have curated the selection to give you a mix of staple favourites and also some more interesting things a little more on the edge. The big and the small are represented, from the might of Klein Constantia to the artisan wines of Craven.

Three whites and three reds at a great price. From Chenin Blanc through to Pinotage and beyond, here's South African wine in a snapshot.

2020 Vondeling Petit Blanc Chenin Blanc

The Vondeling wines hail from the Western Cape region of South Africa, around 45 minutes drive from Cape Twon.

This historic Cape Dutch homestead has a focus on sustainability and conservation and delivers very solid value for money across the board.

This bargain little Chenin Blanc comes from old vines that are cropped low to promote a burst of fresh fruit flavours in the final wine. Some time on lees enhances the mouthfeel but the primary focus here is on delivering a fresh, fruit-driven style of Chenin Blanc.

2020 Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc

The sloping vineyards of Klein Constantia are some of the best for growing Sauvignon Blanc in the Western Cape - ranging from 70 to 343 metres above sea level, it has a cool climate with a constant sea breeze.

This wine is made from a combination of 44 different batches of Sauvignon Blanc, with parcels from 43 different vineyards. The result is a pure expression of their unique terroir, and it's a bright, lively one at that.

If you're looking to get acquainted with Klein Constantia, this is the perfect place to start. Sure to put a little spring in your step!

2021 Craven Skin-Contact Pinot Gris

There isn't much Pinot Gris planted in Stellenbosch, but Mick and Jeanine Craven sniffed some out.

They treat it essentially like a red wine, separating the stems from the grapes and allowing the juice to soak on the skins for more than a week before pressing.

The final wine that has emerged is a lovely rose colour and packed with chewy, delicious flavours and textures. It's Pinot Gris the way it should be. Delicious and slightly wild drinking - it's impossible to not immediately reach for another glass.

2019 Stellenrust Pinotage

Pinotage can be send to be the national red of South Africa, but it can be quite a divisive variety. The best examples are delicious, interesting drinking, the worst... burnt tyre rubber comes to mind!

Thankfully, the Stellenrust expression is the former, offering raspberry and ripe peach and black cherry flavours with subtle oak nuances, a ripe juice palate and a delicate lingering finish.

2019 Badenhorst Secateurs Cinsault Grenache Shiraz

Rhone style blends can be found around the new world, with subtle variations that define their new homes. In South Africa, Cinsault generally forms the backbone for these blends, and the Badenhorst Secateurs is a fantastic example of the style.

Distinctly medium weight, with bright ripe red fruits, the beautiful floral perfumes that Cinsault is known for and balanced peri spice. The wine is supple and smooth with just that right amount of tannin that matches so well with food you can hold and Netflix at night.

Common style and blend, perhaps, standout wine that you keep coming back for more, ABSOLUTELY!

2018 Le Riche Richesse Red Blend

Cabernet is king in Stellenbosch according to the Le Riche family. Yet this wine, the Richesse is a nod to the blending history of the region.

Juicy flavours of red berries are supported by a fine, silky tannin structure and a rounded long finish. The Cab component adds body and complexity whilst the Cinsault adds a nice perfumed element.

A Cabernet Sauvignon based blend, it incorporates Cinsault and smaller amounts of a few different Bordeaux varieties as well.

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).
