The pack will be updated on the first of every month. Your first pack will be shipped the next business day following your subscription. Choose your frequency, skip or cancel at any time (we'll send you a reminder before each delivery) - it's just that easy.

2020 Ravensworth The Long Way Around Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc has been on Bryan Martin's radar for a while.

The many faces and possibilities for the variety have intrigued him from afar. With a gap in fruit during 2020 thanks to smoke in the Canberra region, Bryan took the plunge and bought a small parcel from Margaret River, WA.

The wine was nursed to life with the help of the good folks at McHenry Hohnen. The fruit saw some skins, time in clay amphora, then was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

It's full-flavoured, honeyed with generous mouth-coating texture and a pure sense of minerality. It's a cracking example of the Loire Valley variety.

2020 Stoney Rise Chardonnay

Joe Holyman is one of Tasmania's best Chardonnay producers.

His Holyman Chardonnay is one of the most collectable in the country these days. With the Stoney Rise, you get his signature style at a fraction of the price of his Holyman release.

The flavours here sit in the cooler end of the spectrum. It's a Chardonnay with lovely lively acidity and easy drinkability.

Dollar for dollar, this is very good buying for any Tasmanian Chardonnay fans.

2020 Latta Tranquil Rose

This wine is made from Nebbiolo and Sangiovese fruit which is picked specifically for making Rosé.

These Italian varieties suit a more savoury and structured style of Rosé, but as with all of Owen Latta's wonderful creations, the drinkability here is off the charts.

This Rosé is light as a feather, yet persistent at the same time. It's a delicate wine with plenty of nuance, no additions and a bucket load of personality.

Impossible to not fall in love with, it's a Rosé to make you blush.

2019 Arfion Full Moon Vineyard Pinot Noir

Dave Mackintosh has had a long-standing relationship with the Full Moon Vineyard. For some years now it has been the source of his highly touted Salo Chardonnay project in partnership with Giant Steps winemaker, Steve Flamsteed.

Here, Dave tackles the Pinot Noir from the same site and attacks it head on. Full whole bunch action through ferment, a mainlining of site with very little interference from grape to glass.

It's an excellent wine, clear, transparent and shows the fullness and fragrance of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir in a beautiful light.

2020 Main & Cherry Sangiovese

So much great value vino coming from the cellar of Michael Sexton.

His range is jam-packed with vibrant, energetic examples of alternative varieties. Here he takes aim at Sangiovese and knocks it straight to the boundary.

The fruit comes from a biodynamically farmed vineyard in McLaren Vale. It's all Brunello clone which makes for a more structural style of Sangiovese traditionally. However, with gentle handling from Michael this version has maintained the silky drinkability that is the hallmark of McLaren Vale reds.

It's the perfect Thursday night pizza wine. Bellissimo!

2019 Bondar Violet Hour Shiraz

The name 'Violet Hour' refers to the fading light owners Andre Bondar and Selina Kelly saw on the horizon as they picked the last bunches of Shiraz for their first ever release, the 2012 edition of this wine. A violet sky, a beautiful wine, and a new future ahead for the couple and their vines.

The Violet hour tastes as stylish as it looks, it hits that sweet-spot for all red wine lovers - a combination of elegance and power.

The pedigree of the McLaren Vale vineyard is second to none - it's one of the most respected sites in McLaren Vale where Seaview and Blewitt Springs meet. You get the lively, bright blue fruits of the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs with the power and structure of the Seaview terroir. It's a winning combination. The quality of the Shiraz speaks for itself.

Put simply, if you like McLaren Vale Shiraz with a fresh face - this is a must buy.

Terrific mix

The first box from my package subscription included invariably interesting and delightful wines. It’s been incredibly useful to have a number of bottles ready for any occasion, which I know will be enjoyed by all. I can’t wait for my next box.

Every month is a mystery treat!

I don't think I've ever not enjoyed a wine from my Different Drops Mixed Pack. The unboxing experience is usually the highlight of my (lockdown) month - and there's always something exciting, and something new or unknown to experiment with and try. What an absolute treat every month's wines are...!!!!

A good mix of wines

Thus far the Mystery Mixed 6 pack orders have been a great mix of good value wines. Many I wouldn't pick when selecting wines myself, as I tend to stick to my favourites. I'll look forward to the next one, keep up the good work.

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. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
