About The Pack

This is the first time that Tonic Wines have released their full collection at the same time.

It's a rare chance to sample these unique expressions of Clare Valley and Adelaide Hills wines.

These wines are made in painfully small batches and sell out very shortly after release.

This pack won't be available for long. Stock up on these rare birds while you can.

2018 Tonic Wines Grenache

The same two vineyard sources combine in the 2018 release of Tonic Grenache.

The fruit is picked early precisely to maintain the beguiling floral aromatics that present in Clare Valley Grenache, in a drier vintage like 2018, this is even more important.

This is man-handled as little as possible on its way to bottle. A small amount of whole bunch in the ferment, only a gentle racking before bottling with a dash of sulphur. What you get is the very essence of Clare Grenache; brightly fruited, impossibly drinkable and more-ish to the last glass.

If you've never tried the tantalising wines styles from Tonic, or never had a lighter style of Grenache that has blown your socks off, there is no better way you could spend $30.

2018 Tonic Wines Mataro

This is Clare Valley Mataro at it's most delectable and delicious.

This comes from relatively young Mataro vines (19 years of age) in the Armagh area of the Clare Valley. All the fruit was hand-picked with 35% whole bunches included.

It was foot-stomped, naturally fermented and then basket pressed into old French oak barrels. It was unfined and unfiltered. As Tonic put it, "No fining, no filtration, just disco..."

This is one of the Clare Valley's most charming versions of Mataro and is excellent value for a wine of such quality and interest.

Just 195 dozen made. Giddy up!

2017 Tonic Wines Nebbiolo

The Tonic wines are always in hot demand. Given the quality, the scarcity and the individuality of the whole package, it's no wonder.

Their third release of Nebbiolo is a stunner. The Bowe-Lees vineyard in the Adelaide Hills is one of the country's premiere sources for this much-loved variety, Dan and Glenn were lucky enough to get their hands on a tiny parcel once again in 2017.

This Nebbiolo spent 93 days on skins, before being aged in old oak and sent to bottle without fining or filtering.

It's Nebbiolo with no strings attached, just pure thirst-slaking exuberance oozing from every crevice.  With only 50 dozen in existence, the Tonic Nebbiolo will not last long.

2018 Tonic Wines Chardonnay

Few wineries enjoy the feverish scramble for their new releases like Tonic Wines. And the fever is well deserved.

They make painfully small batches of wine and with the excellent quality and value over the last few vintages, it's no surprise.

This Chardonnay is sourced from the Bowe-Lees vineyard in Woodside, Adelaide Hills. The 2018 vintage spent 24 hours on its skins before being basket pressed to barrel where it lay untouched, unstirred on lees for around 9 months. No malo.

Simple yet incredibly successful winemaking. With only a small allocation available, this may be your last chance to try this fascinating take on Chardonnay. Don't hesitate.

2018 Tonic Wines Rosé

Tantalising release of Rosé this year from the guys at Tonic Wines. Mataro and Grenache have handpicked from two separate vineyards in the Clare Valley.

The wine spent 5 months in old barrels before being sent to this very stylish bottle and sealed with a cork. It's savoury and structured and thirst crushing.

A dead serious Rosé tracking more toward Bandol than Provence in style.

It's a modern Australian Rosé for grown-ups.

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).
