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.

2019 Luna Estate Pinot Noir

Over the last few years Luna Estate in Martinborough have been releasing tremendous value wines across the Pinot spectrum (they have some excellent Chardonnay too).

Their estate Pinot is a true bargain for lovers of fleshy Pinots with depth and concentration. There's a lot going on here; spicy and savoury, deep red and black fruit, some game and pepper.

Make this your go to weekday Pinot!

2021 Mallaluka Barbera

"Great, medium weight, attractive and easy as red."
Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


Barbera from Gundagai is not a radio phone-in caller but a red wine that oozes vibrancy and will bring joy to all.

Barbera's natural tarty acidity shines through among the raspberry, cherry, sour sweet flavours. It has also seen some old oak maturation to give it some extra depth and texture.

Should make all long-time admirers first time buyers...

2019 Veronica Ortega Quite Mencia

Though she grew up in Cadiz surrounded by the smells of Sherry and the ocean, it was red wine that took Veronica Ortega's heart.

She travelled the New World (Burn Cottage, Central Otago) and the Old World (Comte Armand and DRC in Burgundy and Domaine Combier in Crozes-Hermitage) before finding her one true love, Mencia, and settling in Bierzo.

Mencia can take on many forms - from lighter expressions similar to Pinot Noir or Gamay - to fuller bodied examples closer to Syrah - Veronica looks to show her pet variety in all its forms.

'Quite' is her lighter, earlier drinking expression. It's picked from 80-year-old organically-farmed vines and was raised in a mixture of French oak and amphora. Filled with red berries and floral top notes, it's a whimsical red wine of great character and epic drinkability.

2020 Dodgy Bros Juxtaposed Old Vine Grenache

"Juicy. Delicious. Good over the next few years."
Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)


Exciting wine here, from the hands of winemaker Wes Pearson.

This Grenache comes from two top vineyards in McLaren Vale: one planted over 90 years ago in the Clarendon sub-region, and the other in Blewitt Springs. The value on offer here is outstanding.

It strikes that elusive balance between finesse and power effortlessly. If you like Grenache while it's rippling with primary fruit, there is plenty of joy to be had here already. However, if you are looking for something that will look all the better in a few years time, this will equally fit the bill.

Another wine to add to McLaren Vale's impressive list of excellent Grenache.

2018 Queen of the Sierra Red

"Wicked drinking."
Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


This is an unusual creation from the Forlorn Hope tribe, but honestly, what else would you expect?!

The Red Wine smashes Zinfandel, Barbera, Tempranillo, Trousseau Noir, and Mondeuse,(what a combo!) into a three-way blended light, structural, energetic red wine that comes at you head on. It's got attitude and attacks the mouth with chiselled definition and a bushel of forest fruits that will make you head spin.

It's only available in limited quantities here in Australia, so move fast.

2018 Sentio Rouge

Chris Catlow, the one-man band that is Sentio, is a dab hand at elegant reds as well as incredible Chardonnay it seems.

A blend of Sangiovese, Pinot and Syrah, treated gently in the winery, this is a velvety, fragrant light to mid-red, with a memorably silky palate.

It's both a serious and jovial wine, very smashable if you're in the mood, and nicely, spicily complex if you want to take your time over a glass.

An eclectic and delicious selection of wine.

I have not tried every bottle in the 6 pack as yet. So far I have enjoyed the four I have tried as they are very drinkable and interesting. I particularly enjoy being offered wines I would not normally sample. In fact I look forward to trying the next bottle in the selection. The Inkwell Primitivo and the La Posta Malbec are both new territory for me in that they are quite different, in a good way, from other Primotivo and Malbec I have come across. Keep it coming I say.

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 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).
