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 Pierre Marie Chermette Les Griottes Beaujolais

Pierre-Marie Chermette took over his family vineyards in 1982.

From the very beginning he had a vision to produce a more serious, quasi-Burgundian example of Gamay from his homeland. When bubble-gummy, frivolous Beaujolais was all the rage, Pierre-Marie was making serious wines for the best restaurants in Paris.

He continues his passions and focus to this day. 

The Les Griottes is his young vine expression of Gamay. The vines for this cuveé are between 20 - 40 years old. It's produced in a traditional way, with semi-carbonic maceration, however it spends less time on skins than the other cuveés from this producer to preserve freshness and early drinkability.

2019 Meadowbank Nouveau Syrah Pinot

Pinot Noir has always excelled on the Meadowbank vineyard.

Now, with the climate warming up, Syrah is heading the same way on this Derwent Valley site.

It only made sense for winemaker Peter Dredge to blend them together. The combination of the spicy, peppery Shiraz and slippery, perfumed red-berried Pinot Noir is a match made in heaven.

This is a light, juicy modern Australian wine from one of Tasmania's most talented winemakers. The perfect Summer red here from Dredge and co.

2018 Adelina Eternal Return Nebbiolo Barbera Dolcetto

This is a great little wine in the Adelina range - an Italian-styled table wine built for pizzas and good times.

The three varieties; Nebbiolo (50%), Dolcetto (30%), and Barbera (30%), get along famously in this wine.

It's light, fresh and filled with the savoury tannin and spice that you'd expect from these quintessential Italian varieties.

The kicker is the sweet, crunchy fruit at the core which makes this so drinkable any night of the week. Another great release from an SA brand that is constantly in evolution.

2018 Somos Tintito

This is a delicious medium bodied red blend from Ben and Mauricio at Somos wines.

It's a blend of Grenache, Nero d'Avola and Aglianico built with easy drinking in mind and an 'Italian-ate' feel. The aim here was to create "Vin de soif, made for easy drinking with interest." and they've nailed the MO.

This is a top value little red and is squarely in no-brainer territory for those chasing a medium-bodied red that is loaded with charisma.

2018 Nocturne SR Cabernets

The SR Cabernets is a new addition to the Nocturne family.

It's made as a fleshier, more slurpable style of Margaret River Cabernet blend, built for drinking while you wait for the excellent Nocturne Single Vineyard Cabernet to mature.

The fruit comes from Yallingup, the Margaret River sub-region that Julian and Alana believe makes some of the best Cabernet blends in the world.

The Cabernet component comes from their beloved Sheoak vineyard (the source of their SV Cabernet) and it's blended with 13% Merlot from the neighbouring vineyard farmed by the Simpsons.

It's a top value Cabernet blend from this dynamic duo. Easy drinking at a great price.

2018 Spinifex Bete Noir

Husband and wife team of Peter Schell and Magali Gely have extensive winemaking experience in the south of France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals.

Unlike most of Spinifex's wines, 'Bete Noir' is 100% varietal, in this case, Shiraz.

But unlike many big and bold Barossa Shiraz, with 30% of the fruit coming from the Barossa's cooler neighbour Eden Valley this wine has remarkable perfume, elegance and balance.

This has a distinctive 'old world' feel with the vibrancy of South Australian fruit. A wine with an impeccable track record for a true Shiraz connoisseur.

splendid first wine in top drop red six-pack

The first wine we tried in this six pack, the 2017 Pittnauer Pitti Red, was really a knockout. If the rest of the six-pack lives up to this initial bottle, we'll be delighted (and we might even increase the frequency of receiving these "top drop" red sixes).
