2023 Bloody Hill Villages 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. This fruit from a maddening slope in the Coldstream sub-region of 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 from younger vine fruit. Only small quantities made.

2021 Chateau de La Terriere Beaujolais-Villages

It’s quite rare to see a Beaujolais-Villages wine from a single Cru - it makes no reasonable sense when you can make it into Cru-Beaujolais, and make a lot more money.

However, that’s not the case here, all the fruit for this wine comes from 70-year-old vines in Régnié, and truly presents as a Cru wine. Bright red berries on the nose, with the sweetish sour element that is so distinct to the region.

Here’s hoping that the owners keep turning a blind eye the production of this undoubtedly premium Villages offering, and don’t suddenly realise what they're missing out on with this wine.

2021 S.C. Pannell Basso Grenache

The Basso is a lighter, fresher, more 'smashable' version of Grenache from Steve Pannell.

It's Steve's minimal-intervention wine. It's bottled with a minimal amount of sulphur, unfined and unfiltered.

Steve's wines are all about melding with our Australian culture and this is the perfect fit for BBQs and beach cricket.

It's lighter in body, dappled with the lacy tannins and spice of early-picked Grenache - It's just a great anytime/anywhere red from one of the country's finest winemakers.

2022 Thierry Germain Cep by Cep Anjou Rouge

Thierry Germain's Cep by Cep label is not only an excellent pun (nothing to do with mushrooms) but is home to a range of great value Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc.

The Anjou Rouge is his buoyant, early-drinking expression of Franc. It's built for freshness, easy accessibility and bald-faced enjoyment as a young wine.

If you're just dipping your toe in the Loire Valley pool, this is the perfect place to discover the charms of well-handled Cabernet Franc.

2023 Higher Plane Time For Heroes Malbec

The Higher Plane Time For Heroes Malbec is a vibrant, youthful example of great value Margaret River Malbec.

Higher Plane, located in Margaret River's Forest Grove, was established in 1997 and is sustainably farmed with organic principles. Juniper owners Roger Hill and Gillian Anderson purchased it in 2006, their son Tom now continues the family business, focusing on maintaining the traditional stylings of the wines and keeping the value proposition high.

This Malbec is fermented as handpicked whole bunches, undergoing 14 days of carbonic maceration and 6 days of fermentation, with hand plunging twice daily. It’s aged for 5 months in neutral, large-format French oak barrels, keeping it in a fresh, fruit-forward mode and making it extremely approachable from day dot.

This is a lovely luscious red which proves there's still some great value to be had in Margaret River if you know where to look.

95 points
"From its outrageous dark purple to the gorgeous fruit profile on offer, how could anyone say no to malbec? A resounding yes to this with its heady aromas of violets and freshly rolled tobacco – ah, those were the days – to the dark plums and cherries sprinkled with cocoa and Middle Eastern spices. The palate is only medium bodied, the tannins shapely, the acidity refreshing, ensuring this finishes on a high note. Factor in the price and the style, as in a drink-now option, and this is tip-top."
- Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

2022 Brothers at War The Old Man Eden Valley Syrah

Second-generation vigneros Sam and Angus Wardlaw release this Shiraz as an ode to their old-man, who has inspired and driven them to become the winemakers and people they are today.

The wine itself is a ball of flavour, delicious in nature, and very much a fruit-driven expression of the Eden Valley.

The Wardlaw brothers are making a pretty broad range of wines, showcasing both regional and varietal classics, while also not being hemmed in to any one set style of finished product. As an homage, we think they’ve done pretty damn well with this wine, and we’re sure their old man would be beaming with pride.

95 points
"Puts beyond doubt the proposition that elegance and freshness can be achieved without stress or strain, simply allowing the fruit to express itself... drink and be merry."
- James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

    Another great selection

    DD comes up with an interesting, diverse but most of all delicious collection of red every month.

    The best part of these packs are that I would never think to select these wines at a normal shop so my wine world is opening up.

    Great value. Well delivered. Fantastic descriptions on the website!

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
