2021 Nick Spencer Wines Medium Dry Red Blend

Nick Spencer says that this wine is an homage to the "Aussie claret" blends of the 1950's, 60's and 70's, which has proved to be the wines that moved him the most.

These were blended wines, with a house style the primary focus rather than the emphasis on regional or varietal wines which is so prevalent in Australian wine today.

This Shiraz dominant red blend is Nick's attempt to bring that old blended philosophy into the modern day. It's a wine that shows ripe blue fruit characters, a vibrant nose of violets and spice and silky decadent tannins which should see it mature nicely over the medium-long term.

2021 Thistledown Thorny Devil Old Vine Grenache

"Excellent Grenache. Invigorating."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

The crew at Thistledown are Grenache-obsessed - they know how fantastic the McLaren Vale region is at producing stellar Grenache, and they sure love to show it off.

This is one old vine Grenache to really sink your teeth into. The fruit comes from multiple vineyards, each parcel vinified separately with around 30% whole bunches. It all comes together in a spectacular package, keeping the pureness of the fruit but with layers and layers of interest and finesse.

Such an excellent wine for the price point. The perfect way to dip a toe into the wonderful world of McLaren Vale Grenache without breaking the bank.

2021 Ravensworth The Long Way Around Malbec Blend

The catastrophic events of 2020 led Bryan Martin to go in search of fruit from all corners of Australia, and the creation of his Long Way Around range.

And why not continue such a great idea? For 2021 he's put together a smart-as-a-smug-dolphin red blend from Margaret River that is dominantly Malbec, with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot included.

It's dense and flavour-packed, more of a classic rich wine than his other 2021 easy-drinking reds. Spicy red fruits, a lick of youthful tannin and a real succulence to the palate.

2019 Brothers at War The Old Man Syrah

Second-generation vignerons Sam and Angus Wardlaw release this Shiraz as an ode to their old-man, who has inspired and driven them to become the winemakers and people they are today.

The wine itself is a ball of flavour, delicious in nature, and very much a fruit-driven expression of the Eden Valley.

The Wardlaw brothers are making a pretty broad range of wines, showcasing both regional and varietal classics, while also not being hemmed in to any one set style of finished product. As an homage, we think they’ve done pretty damn well with this wine, and we’re sure their old man would be beaming with pride.

2021 Fetherston Camellia Cabernet Sauvignon

Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon consistently has wonderful qualities such as freshness, some spice, and silky tannins. These factors are delivered in spades in the Fetherston Camellia Cabernet Sauvignon, which is elegant, balanced and textured, without a hint of greenness to it. For the price, this Cabernet offers tremendous value, whether you drink it now or after several years of careful cellaring.

Fruit for the Fetherston Camellia Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the 32-year-old Yering Grange vineyard in the Yarra Valley, a small site producing high-quality fruit. With 20 days on skins, there is wonderful colour, flavour and texture in the wine, with only a hint of oak.

2021 Ricca Terra Aglianico

Aglianico may turn out to be one of southern Italy's better exports to Australia.

The ultimate experimenters at Ricca Terra arms have got behind the varietal, planting numerous clones, seeking complexity to match grape's natural power.

This new release is full of sweet, dark licorice and blood plum flavours. It's serious wine, with some quality oak apparent and a rugged savoury finish.

As with all the Ricca Terra wines, the value-for-money is extraordinary.

Delicious and unique

Tried multiple online wine suppliers and finally found our niche with different drop. Each wine is so well balanced but different to one another. Love every single one I've tried to date.

Warmed the cockles

So good my wife and I ordered it twice. We enjoyed everything… pairing with pepperoni pizza all the way to baked fish pies.

Delivery and customer service are the real winner, but the wines were *mwahh* delicious.

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).
