2019 Tibaldi Roero Arneis DOCG

Arneis can be considered the flagship white varietal in Piemonte, with the Roero DOCG producing some of the best examples of it. This enchanting wine comes from sisters Monica and Daniela Tibaldi, who took over their family vineyards in the heart of the DOCG in 2014.

Such a pretty array of aromas here; floral, fresh, citrusy, herbal, there is a real potpourri going on with the noise of this wine. On the palate it’s got quite a round, soft mouthfeel leading into sweet summer peaches topped with a squeeze of lemon zest, peach daiquiri anyone?

There is a really nice mineral feel as well, with a very soft acid structure completing the medium bodied feels here.

2021 Arfion Pinot Grigio

Dave Mackintosh's Arfion label has a good track record with this popular grape, and his style really captures the freshness of 'Grigio' with the texture of 'Gris'.

Unlike the vast majority of Pinot Grigio on the market, his is very much hand-made from start to finish. It comes from the Coombe vineyard in the warmer Lower Yarra Valley area - a site with a great track record for Pinot Gris.

The fruit was hand-picked in the cool early morning to retain freshness and concentration, with whole bunches, older oak and some lees stirring adding nice texture and interest.

It's zippy and refreshing on the one hand, chewy and thought-provoking on the other. A quality Pinot Grigio from Dave and super value.

2021 Bloody Hill Villages Panton Hill Pinot Noir

"You walk up and down it and you'll know why I call it Bloody Hill!" says Timo Mayer.

Bloody Hill Pinot Noir is a gentler version of the variety, with Timo' son Rivar Mayer Ferguson now looking after all the winemaking. The fruit from this maddening slope in the Yarra Valley is fully destemmed, naturally fermented and aged in old oak puncheons for only six months.

It's a softer, more fruit-driven style of Pinot Noir. Excellent value and made in only small quantities.

2020 Gertie Cabernet Franc

Small production Cabernet Franc, from very special blocks in the Clare Valley, the only downside is that there is so little Franc left in the valley.

Redcurrant and blackcurrant, exotic spices, rosemary and rosy perfume. Medium bodied, delicious crunch of sappy fruit and spice, almost a milky feel, fine silty tannin, and this kind of rosehip tea perfume trailing on a lets-go-again finish.

A little bit of whole-bunch, a few weeks on skins post-ferment to build some structure and depth. Unfined unfiltered, and oh so limited.

2019 Celler del Roure Vermell Mando blend

A lively little red that is a blend of 10% Mandó, 15% Monastrell, 75% Garnacha Tintorera. Aged in the terracotta for just four months, it's juicy, nervy, and really pops out of the glass.

This is a super energetic and lively wine, powerful primary flavours of earthen sour red berries, before the gentle sweetness settles into the savoury spread of tannin, all enveloped with soft, dry spices.

The natural acidity keeps this wine in perfect balance. Like so many Spanish wines at the moment, it just over delivers for the price. Light, savoury and stylish, with a herbal chalky finish, please sir, may I have some more!!

2020 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...!!!!

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).
