About The Pack

This mixed pack is designed as the perfect set-and-forget option for those looking to keep the house stocked with interesting, delicious red wines with a great story.

These are our favourite recent red discoveries here at Different Drop, made by producers we love. And it is offered to you at our very best price.

The pack covers a wide range of styles and varieties - from light, ethereal reds through to those richer and fuller-bodied. You'll find wines from icons, rising stars and cult figures in the world of wine. No matter what your preference, we hope you fall in love with these wines just as much as we have.

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.

Our January Pack includes:

2018 Small Island Glengarry Pinot Noir

A hidden gem of the Apple Isle, the Small Island Wines are making plenty of noise with only a small range.

This is their single site Pinot Noir from the Glen Garry vineyard in the North of the island. Focused, intense and brooding, this is a Pinot Noir with a lot of charisma.

Oak set decidedly to the background, the fruit from this excellent vineyard front and centre. In Campbell Mattinson's 95 point review, he dubbed it, "Clear favourite of the three individual vineyard releases..."

Only tiny amounts made.

2018 Renato Corino Dolcetto d'Alba

After apprenticing under Barolo cult-figure Elio Altare and his cousin, the iconic Luciano Sandrone, Renato Corino split off from his family to walk his own path.

He took with him his portion of the family plots situated across some of the great crus of La Morra: Rocche dell’Annunziata, Arborina, Pozzo, Conca and Roncaglie. Since 2005, he had set about making a more modern style of Barolo, starting with a brand new winery with all the creature comforts and ability for high levels of quality control that come with it. This quality-focused approach showed immediately in the wines.

Today, his son Stefano Corino is setting the region of fire as one of Barolo's fastest rising stars. It's wines like this vibrant, juicy Dolcetto that showcase his winemaking sensibility. It's clean, it's fresh, the fruit 'pops' out of the glass. It's classy and precise and excellent value for money.

2019 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 La Petite Vanguard Grenache

The team behind Vanguardist uses the 'Petit Vanguard' label to experiment on certain parcels of fruit in order to find a better path in producing their excellent premium Vanguardist label.

The Grenache is a wine built for easy consumption, early drinking, and something that goes with a wide array of food styles.

The intense but low yeilding vintage of 2019 supplied fruit that could handle plenty of whole bunch, as such about 70% of the Grenache this wine was fermented as whole clusters giving lightness and freshness to counteract the natural density of the fruit.

It's bright, lively and spot on for a fresh example of McLaren Vale Grenache.

2019 Poppelvej Panacea Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc

This is a great example of modern South Australian Cabernet blend from the hands of energetic young Danish-born winemaker, Uffe Deichmann.

This comes from two McLaren Vale vineyards: Paeroa & Sommerville. It spent a couple of weeks on skins, Uffe looking for a soft extraction of tannin and colour to produce a Cabernet with early approachability.

This is great drinking, with plenty of deep, ripe fruit flavours and a lick of toasty oak and that vibrant pop of blue fruit and violet that Cabernet Franc brings to the table.

It's a Cabernet blend you can get stuck into right now or cellar in the medium term.

2019 Adelina Shiraz Mataro

The Adelina Shiraz Mataro showcases the exquisite old vine Clare Valley fruit that Jen Gardner and Col McBryde have at their disposal.

Over half of the fruit is sourced from vineyards 100+ years old, these are some of the Clare Valley's most precious and respected vineyards.

The wine itself is treated with the typical Adelina care: wild ferments, gentle handling, and this year a portion fermented in concrete. This is yet another remarkable release, delivering a flavour-packed yet elegant representation of old-vine Clare Valley fruit.

As a complete package, this is unbeatable value and one of the best pound-for-pound reds in the Clare Valley.

Top quality, excellent variety

Loving our subscription packs - 6 interesting, unusual, different wines that are a cut above the norm.

Local and international brands, familiar and unfamiliar grape varietals- exactly what different drop is all about as far as I am concerned!

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. 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: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
