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.

2020 Two Tonne Tasmania TMV Pinot Noir

The TMV Pinot Noir is meant for earlier consumption than the more premium Dog and Wolf Pinot Noir by Ricky Evans.

It's a glimpse at the vintage for the Tamar Valley sub-region. But make no mistake, this is not your average 'entry level' Pinot Noir, this has an edge to it, a personality all of its own.

The 2020 release of the Two Tonne Tasmania TMV Pinot Noir is a ripper. Ricky says it's his best yet, albeit in a lighter, more athletic frame than is typical of this cuveé.

It's a cracking wine with immaculate fruit and a savoury backbone - a great representation of the quality being produced by a new wave of Tasmanian winemaking rock-stars.

Stocks are limited on this release, don't hesitate.

2018 Pittnauer Heideboden Blaufrankisch

Floral, beautifully-scented Blaufrankisch from Heideboden, a sub-region of Burgenland on the shores of Lake Neusiedl.

A typically spicy, herbal Austrian with a tight, constrained palate but fully lively and tasty with liqueur cherries and blood orange flavours. Excellent line and length.

A bouncy, tangy red that cleanses the mouth and demands a refill - if Riesling had a red cousin then it would be this.

2018 Maretti Langhe Nebbiolo

For lovers of affordable Italian table wines, the Maretti wines, crafted by the winemaker Danilo Drocco, have been some of the best buying on Australian shores for years now.

The Langhe Nebbiolo adds another delicious string to their bow. The fruit is macerated for only a short time before being pressed off to barrel. The intent here is to deliver a Piemontese Nebbiolo that is ready to drink now. Drocco has been very successful.

The tannins are super fine and moreish, the fruit is bright, energetic and has the signature rusty colour that you might associate with very traditional examples of Nebbiolo from this region.

This is one of the best value Italian Nebbiolos you will find this year.

2020 Paralian Marmont Vineyard Grenache

96 points

"...flavoursome yet trim, long cool finish, layers of tannin, spice and perfume trailing. Outstanding."
Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

After 46 collective vintages at home and abroad, Charlie and Skye settled in McLaren Vale to launch their own brand, focused on old Grenache and Shiraz vines in the northern parts of the region.

Their Grenache was grown by the Cross family in Blewitt Springs. Their beautiful old vines on ‘The Marmont Vineyard’ produce fruit with wonderful vibrancy and depth.

When handled sensitively, McLaren Vale Grenache is a feast of florals, red berries and sweet spice. And that's just what Charlie and Skye have turned out here. .

2019 Bests Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon

"Look at the value on this. Cool but ripe, dusty and varietal but generous."
Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)


Best's claim that "If our Great Western region were somehow prohibited from growing Shiraz, it would probably be just as famous for its Cabernets."

Looking at the quality, value and potential longevity of their Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon, it's hard to argue with them.

This hits that magic Cabernet sweet spot between approachability and cellarability, all wrapped up in an impressively elegant, medium-bodied package.

For a Cabernet that's great either right now or in the cellar, you'll struggle to find better value.

2020 Spinifex Syrah

Pete Schell continues to explore the possibilities with Shiraz/Syrah in his beloved Barossa Valley, and this vibrant and lifted Syrah is a gorgeous drink.

Designed as a more understated and elegant version of Barossa Shiraz, Schell picks fruit from a couple of different, cooler sites in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. The grapes are picked earlier to retain freshness and perfume, before seeing a mixture of stainless steel and wooden and concrete fermenters.

Wild and savoury yet soft and sumptuous, this is Barossa Shiraz unlike we usually see it.

Interesting, flavour-packed and moreish, this is another winner from this superstar winemaker.

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. 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: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
