2021 Margan Breaking Ground Albarino

Originally from the north-west coast of the Iberian Peninsula, Albarino is well suited to the warm, maritime climate of the Hunter Valley. Planted around 2014 by the Margan family, these vines are now mature enough to showcase the unique terroir of their estate vineyard.

Left on skins for a few days till the ferment kicked itself off, the resultant wine is full of lovely orchard fruit, and bright juicy aromatics, with great phenolic tension from the time on skins.

Texture is the by-line here, crunchy, mid-weight wine, with interest, and a point of difference; sign me up.

2020 Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc

While most of the fruit for this wine is estate-grown, the cousins Badenhorst do get some fruit from their neighbours, who share a similar dry-grown organic philosophy with their organically-farmed vineyard.

Low-yielding vines are really the key to what makes this wine shine; fruit intensity, palate weight, and texture are the hallmarks of what makes great Chenin, and this wine has those in spades.

Talk of terroir can sometimes be a bit redundant, however the quality and interest in this the Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin, must always circle back to their amazing site and viticulture.

2021 Billy Button The Affable Barbera

If you have never tried the Billy Button wines, this is a great introduction to what Jo Marsh is all about: Alpine Valley fruit, masterfully handled, delivered with incredible value.

Over the last few years this has garnered a reputation as one of the most drinkable Barberas in the country. The key here is balance. Where other Aussie Barbera can be a little wishy-washy, this hits the nail on the head. Jo says, "It is now one of my most popular wines and one of my most consistent" and it rightfully has been the fastest of her range to sell out each year.

Don't miss out on this charismatic little red from one of the Alpine Valleys' finest.

2021 Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

Mac Forbes is passionate about Pinot Noir, and his 'Yarra Valley' release is the perfect way to get to know his unique style.

It comes from declassified portions of Mac's six single vineyard Pinots, taking on characters of each to present a beautifully balanced wine that reflects what quality Yarra Pinot is all about.

This gives the drinker an immediate insight into what Mac Forbes' ethos. He stands for quality, and this characterful Pinot this is sensational value.

2019 Pietraventosa Primitivo Volere Volare

This is a stunning and high toned red from the talented winemaking hands of Marianna Annio and Raffaele.

Taking organically grown fruit from their vineyard, they transform the variety into a deliciously plush and well balanced mid-weight wine ready to crack open any night of the week.

Red and black fruits entwine with fine tannins, with a cutting line of natural acidity to hold all that fruit in check. Truly delightful, and stellar value!

2021 Adelina McLaren Vale Shiraz

Col McBryde at Adelina wanted to make a Shiraz that was a little different to their usual one - a bit more dark and broody, but still keeping the classic Adelina style.

So Col sourced some certified organic fruit from the McLaren Vale, coming from a ripper site in Kangarilla managed by two impeccable growers, Yanagrra's Michael Lane and Pete Fraser. We all know what great fruit and a deft touch equals.

It's got a focus more on dark fruit flavour than their Clare Valley reds, with chewy tannin and a bit more of a broodiness to its personality. Still inherently Adelina in style, it's something a little different - and incredibly delicious.

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. 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).
