2023 Little Frances Eleventh House Sorella

Owner/winemaker Erin Pooley's aim for this 'Eleventh House' range is to craft classic, high-quality, minimal intervention wines that are perfect for everyday drinking.

The white is a Vermentino dominant blend with some aromatic and textural support from Pinot Gris & Friulano. The trio get fermented in barrels and aged on their lees, coming out as a really charming and flavourful wine filled with citrus and stone fruit.

A delightfully versatile wine and super value for money.

2022 Churton Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough as a region is notable for its Sauvignon Blanc production. Some of it very good, some not so much. Here's one of the very good ones.

Organically farmed by the Weaver family, this wine shows a rare intensity for this variety. Each of the 10 Churton Sauvignon Blanc blocks are harvested individually by hand, a portion sees some time in larger format oak, and all the wine spends six months on lees before bottling.

Textural, powerful, and incredible value for money given the care taken to craft this. This is Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc done right.

"Crikey! Delicious. Tastes more like the kind of Loire chenin blanc I drink than Marlborough savvy B. Lemony, so much sea spray and brine, wet fern characters and sure, a touch of tropical fruits, but subdued under the zestiness of the wine. Mouth-watering and delicious. Absolute ripper."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

2021 Combes What's Beneath Chardonnay

Here's an electric Chardonnay from a rising star of the Yarra Valley.

Winemaker Oscar Hermann sees the Cordillera Vineyard in the Upper Yarra as one of the great places to grow Chardonnay in the region, where flint and mineral characters are derived from the red and grey volcanic clay soils.

There is a beautiful shape to this wine. It's fine but full flavoured, supremely detailed in it's white peach through the savoury/saline falvour profile.

It's got length, drive, focus - all the beautiful things about Chardonnay grown in a cool climate.

94 Points
"Sheesh, this is good. It’s so saline and savoury, honey glazed nuts spiked with lemongrass, ginger and a huge slosh of green apple juice. A nod to Jura, perhaps, my mind wanders to those dry palominos of Spain, though, or maybe the Luis Seabra whites from Portugal that take on sea spray and oyster shell minerality by the bucket load. There’s volume here too, concentration, definition, squeakiness to texture. Proper stuff, proper depth and complexity. Ripper chardonnay, that no matter where you look for references to, marches to its own beat with confidence."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

2022 Jean Paul Dubost Beaujolais-Villages Lantignie Rouge

The effortlessly delicious 2022 Jean Paul Dubost Beaujolais-Villages Lantignié Rouge is a wine that delivers cru quality at a remarkable value.

Domaine Dubost Morgon, established in 1902, is now helmed by fourth-generation vigneron Jean-Paul Dubost who is dedicated to organic farming and non-interventionist winemaking.  Produced using classic semi-carbonic maceration of whole clusters, this Gamay is bottled with minimal intervention, no added sulphur and just a light filtration.

On the nose, this Beaujolais-Villages Lantignié offers enticing aromas of earth, wild berries, and a touch of peppercorn. The palate is round and creamy, with a medium body, fine tannins, and a succulent character. The wine’s beautifully balanced nature leads to a powerfully aromatic and fresh finish.

A super value Beaujolais from an excellent, modern winemaker.

2023 Koerner La Korse Sangiovese Blend

The Koerner brothers are running head on at Clare Valley wine. They've put together one of the region's most dynamic ranges of wine, investigating unsung pockets of the area with energy and creativity. It's exciting stuff.

The La Korse is not your average Clare Valley red. Here the boys combine Sangiovese, Grenache and Sciaccarello with a splash of Carignan & Malbec to create a vibrant, mischievous red with epic drinkability.

This is a new look Clare Valley red.

2023 Cirillo Single Vineyard Shiraz

Made from grapes sourced from high quality Barossa vineyard, winemaker Marco Cirillo's 2023 Single Vineyard Shiraz is serious value.

Utilizing open fermentation, natural yeast, and basket pressing, the wine matures for 10 months in seasoned French and American oak. Aromas of cocoa, mint, and blackcurrant, with a soft and juicy mid-weight palate awash with black and blue fruits. 

It's a delicious entry point to Barossa Valley Shiraz and another bargain from this much-loved artisan producer.

    Top Drops mixed pack

    Received my first top drops mixed pack before Christmas. I was a bit hesitant to leave the wine selection to someone else initially , but not now. Every bottle we’ve had so far has been awesome! This is a great way to discover new wines you wouldn’t otherwise get to try. Can’t wait for the next batch now!

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
