About The Pack

The wine scene in Tasmania is thumping at the moment with some of the brightest young talent in the country crafting wines across the island.

And while Pinot Noir and Chardonnay get the lion's share of attention, there are plenty of other delicious things to explore from our most southern state.

Here's six wines that offer great value and give you a taste of what Tassie has to offer.

2020 Stargazer Tupelo

Sam Connew is an excellent winemaker and her rising Tasmanian label, Stargazer, is definitely one to watch.

'Tupelo' is her Alsatian-inspired blend of Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Riesling. This is a very well-constructed version of this classic aromatic blend, with good acidity and a touch of grip to offset the natural fruit sweetness of these expressive varieties.

It's delicious, interesting and good value, the perfect wine to tuck into alongside a plate of fresh shellfish or sashimi.

Sam's wines are only made in small quantities so get in quick!

2020 Stefano Lubiana Primavera Chardonnay

Most of the 'work' that happens in the Stefano Lubiana wines happens in the vineyard. Steve's was the first vineyard in Tasmania to be certified biodynamic. The quality of the wines exhibit this commitment to the quality of fruit.

This Primavera Chardonnay is great buying if you like the feel of Tassie Chardonnay but don't want to blow the whole budget.

It's Chardonnay with depth and richness but with a fine line of acidity strung throughout. This is pitched as an entry point into Steve's premium range of wines but offers much more than that title would suggest.

This is a great place to start if you want to become familiar with these excellent Tasmanian wines.

2020 Havilah Skinsy Pinot Gris

The Havilah range is Ricky Evans of Two Tonne Tasmania's experimental label where he can shake things up and try and test the waters with some different winemaking techniques.

Here he takes skin contact to Pinot Gris, looking for more flesh and structure out of the variety without compromising on the beautiful aromatics. He's nailed it. This is a great drink.

It's not quite and amber wine and not really a rosé, per se, but it is 100% flat out delicious and guaranteed to disappear from your glass in the blink of an eye.

2019 Sinapius Esme

This is the third vintage Vaughn has been able to release a singular wine made from the Gamay he and his wife Linda planted on their gorgeous Tasmanian vineyard.

For its first run, with not much juice to play with, Vaughn has put together a beautiful, bright and fragrant, early drinking red which is absolutely delightful.

Gamay is becoming more and more popular these days, Vaughn was ahead of the curve to plant it on his 'close-planted' block and his foresight is now paying off.

2020 Ravensworth The Long Way Around Tamar Valley Pinot Noir

A meeting of the minds between Bryan Martin and Ricky Evans of Two Tonne Tasmania gave birth to this sensational value Pinot Noir.

Ricky effectively grew and made this wine himself with a nod and a blessing from his friend Bryan who was locked down in NSW during April of 2020.

It's a wickedly drinkable, lively Pinot Noir - all about vibrant up-front fruit as opposed to the slightly more reductive/savoury style of Pinot Noir that Ricky typically produces.

It's one of the star releases from the motley crew of Long Way Around wines born from 2020. It's so dangerously delicious and ready to drink right now.

2020 Hughes & Hughes Syrah

A ludicrously small parcel of fruit was available to make this cuvee but Jonny Hughes loves his Tassie Syrah, so why not, hey?

This is a sublime, elegant and spice-riddled Syrah more akin to something from the cooler parts of the northern hemisphere than 'classic' Australian Shiraz.

It's finely structured, beautifully presented and extremely limited.

Only a limited amount produced.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
