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 Domaine de la Grosse Pierre Chiroubles

Gamay grown across four hectares of fifty year old estate vines mid slope in Chiroubles. The vineyards face east and are in prime position to soak up the warmth of the morning sun lending ripeness to the vines. Combine this with the cool freshness of altitude and the minerality of poor soils and you have an irresistible combination.

Deliciously drinkable yet far from simple, a great example of the uniqueness that can be found in Cru Beaujolais.

2021 Adelina Grenache

Adelina are kicking some serious goals as of late. Their stylish packaging, the amazing old vine fruit they utilise, the 'house style' of the wines, all are coming up trumps for this Clare Valley couple.

Once again Col McBryde's new release fits squarely in the 'new wave' of Grenache sweeping the Australian wine industry - fine-boned and high-toned, a bit like Col himself.

The fruit stems from a stunning 80+-year-old vineyard on the Adelina property, and is left on skins for just over 2 weeks in concrete vats prior to pressing to neutral barrels. This extracts maximum character from the fruit in its purest form. Freshness and age-worthiness reign supreme here, and there is even a rock, mineral feel on the finish.

2020 Coates The Syrah

Shiraz out of the McLaren Vale labelled as Syrah, which is a good indication that this is not an oaky, sweet-fruited expression.

This is more French in outlook, dry, peppery and savoury with a beautifully flowing palate and a linear, pleasing finish. The idea here is an expensive imported wine that is a definite extended cellaring possibility.

The real McLaren Vale miracle here is that it's solid value! Great buying and great drinking.

2019 Blue Poles Allouran Merlot Cabernet Franc

When you think of Blue Poles you think of the Allouran, and this is a top shelf release of this much-loved wine.

The classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc is on song in this release - the latter adding structure and perfume to the plump, juicy goodness of Merlot.

Alongside some of its more ambitiously priced Margaret River counterparts, the Allouran is phenomenal value for money.

This wine sells out quicker and quicker each year. Act quickly if you want some for yourself.

2020 Living Roots Wine Co Limestone Coast Montepulciano

While Montepulciano is at home in the centre of Italy, it's been adopted by many winemakers in Australia. The Living Roots Wine Co Limestone Coast Montepulciano shows that the grape is loving it in Aus.

Sourced from a small vineyard planted by Seb's father on the Limestone Coast, the wine was destined for a blend but they thought it was too good not to be released as a varietal bottling. Montepulciano can be quite tannic, so they decided to go for more of a fresh, lighter style that wouldn't grip your teeth for dear life.

Red and dark fruits, liquorice, clove, lots of structure, tannin, and acid - delightful.

2020 Cantina Tombacco Aglianico

Aglianico might get compared to Nebbiolo for its power and structure, but it definitely has a very own unique personality and character.

Cantina Tombacco highlights everything great about the grape in this wine: deep red berries entwined with vanilla and spice, an elegant mouthfeel and a long, long finish. A good line of acidity keeps its full bodied structure in check.

Truly great value drinking right here for anyone looking for a ballsy red to go with a steak!

Very decent mixed dozen

Highlight was the Alma Negra Tinto, which I've had to order again individually for $40. So great value overall.

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.

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 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).
