2021 Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling

Adelina is on a serious roll - another ripper wine here.

Their home is in the Clare Valley and though their range is beginning to roam a little further afield, the choice of a Riesling site was a no-brainer. This vineyard in the famous Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare was planted in 2000, with perfect soils for producing first class Riesling.

There are many reasons that PHR is perhaps the most famous region in the country for producing Riesling; the consistency and the purity of the fruit not the least of them.

This Riesling sings of its home. It's beautiful drinking, and unbeatable value.

2020 Dappled Appellation Chardonnay

If you like Yarra Valley Chardonnay, we've got a live one for you here.

The fastidious hands of winemaker Shaun Crinion have put together a cracking Chardonnay under his Appellation label from the 2020 Yarra Valley vintage.

It's not often you find a focused, flavour packed, handmade Chardonnay for these dollars but that's exactly what Shaun has delivered. This is made using the same methodology as his premium single vineyard wines. No corners cut. The value is ridiculous.

It's a whole lot of wine crammed into the bottle at the price. This is a benchmark for 'entry-level' Chardonnay in the Yarra Valley and it's never available for long!

2020 Unico Zelo Esoterico

A favourite amongst those who've tracked the Carters from the beginning: the Esoterico is the wild child of the UZ range...

With Brendan and Laura's experience with this style of wine a little richer now, the execution of this skin contact white is on another level.

Supercharged aromatics from the Zibibbo, Moscato Giallo, Gewurztraminer & Greco, with a little boost to the mouthfeel from their old friend Fiano. They nailed the recipe this year.

It's orange in colour and cloudy as all get out, it lives up to its esoteric name but with oodles of drinkability. That's what these skinsy whites should all be about.

2020 Minim Colbinabbin Nero d'Avola

Nero d'Avola in Australia can be confusing, the styles varying considerably as we work out the best spots for it to be planted.

Colbinabbin, or Colbo to the local wine crowd, may be a front runner for Nero d'Avola best in ground. The Minim version is inky, perfumed, flush with liqueur cherries, and spicy dark fruit on the palate. It's all upfront and tangy, with great energy.

The merest amount of sulphur pre-bottling is the only winemaking addition, and it has a brisk, natural feel with wonderful acidity. You should avola load of this in your wine rack.

2020 Koerner The Clare

Elevated, elegant Clare Cabernets collab, and that's enough alliteration already.

The base of this wine is a classic Clare Valley varietal marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, with a splash of Grenache, Carignan and Sciacarello. But contrary to what those varieties usually produce from the Clare, this is a lively, juicy red wine ready to be tucked into immediately.

It's the Clare Valley viewed through the eyes of two younger generation locals who want the wines of their home to be vibrant and accessible and they are nailing their mission.

2019 Spinifex Bete Noir

Husband and wife team of Peter Schell and Magali Gely have extensive winemaking experience in the south of France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals.

Unlike most of Spinifex's wines, 'Bete Noir' is 100% varietal, in this case, Shiraz.

But unlike many big and bold Barossa Shiraz, with 30% of the fruit coming from the Barossa's cooler neighbour Eden Valley this wine has remarkable perfume, elegance and balance.

This has a distinctive 'old world' feel with the vibrancy of South Australian fruit. A wine with an impeccable track record for a true Shiraz connoisseur.

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.

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).
