2021 Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir

For wine lovers everywhere, the quest to find affordable, interesting Pinot Noir that makes you blush like only Pinot can, is constant...

One of the heroes of this much sought after variety is undoubtedly the Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir. Made by Yarra Valley maestro Franco D'Anna, this is pure Pinot Noir to its core.

It's earthy, lifted, vibrant and just ludicrously drinkable. 

There's a very good argument to be made that this Australia's best Pinot Noir in this price range. How the D'Annas produce this quality at the price remains a mystery but they do it year in, year out.

Hoddles Creek Estate is the gold standard for quality, affordable Pinot Noir in Australia. Back up the truck.

2019 Da Vero Biologico Nero d'Avola

The Da Vero Biologico Nero d'Avola announces itself with black fruits and spicy tones, with plum and brambly notes giving it a nice mix of fruity and savoury characters on the nose. 

The palate is a delicious mix of black and red fruits and chocolate, with some tertiary notes of dried fruit and leather now starting to evolve. It has great balance between the ripe tannins and vibrant acidity, resulting in a very enjoyable wine sourced from an organic vineyard, and thus offering high-quality fruit. Drink it with pasta dishes or red meat.

2021 Thistledown Thorny Devil Old Vine Grenache

The crew at Thistledown are Grenache-obsessed - they know how fantastic the McLaren Vale region is at producing stellar Grenache, and they sure love to show it off.

This is one old vine Grenache to really sink your teeth into. The fruit comes from multiple vineyards, each parcel vinified separately with around 30% whole bunches. It all comes together in a spectacular package, keeping the pureness of the fruit but with layers and layers of interest and finesse.

Such an excellent wine for the price point. The perfect way to dip a toe into the wonderful world of McLaren Vale Grenache without breaking the bank.

2021 Ravensworth The Long Way Around Malbec Blend

The catastrophic events of 2020 led Bryan Martin to go in search of fruit from all corners of Australia, and the creation of his Long Way Around range.

And why not continue such a great idea? For 2021 he's put together a smart-as-a-smug-dolphin red blend from Margaret River that is dominantly Malbec, with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot included.

It's dense and flavour-packed, more of a classic rich wine than his other 2021 easy-drinking reds. Spicy red fruits, a lick of youthful tannin and a real succulence to the palate.

2020 Forlorn Hope Songs from Mars The Other Kurock Aglianico

The thick skinned Aglianico grape goes minimalist at the hands (or hands-off) of Matt at Forlorn Hope.

Bigger, grippier and denser that the light glou-glou wines that currently dominate the lo-fi wine scene, it underwent a lengthy ferment and spent eight months on old french oak.

Dense dark blue fruits, wild herbs, caressing and structured tannins and a big savoury finish. You'll need something more than a view and a comfy chair to get the most out of this.

2021 Adelina McLaren Vale Shiraz

Col McBryde at Adelina wanted to make a Shiraz that was a little different to their usual one - a bit more dark and broody, but still keeping the classic Adelina style.

So Col sourced some certified organic fruit from the McLaren Vale, coming from a ripper site in Kangarilla managed by two impeccable growers, Yanagrra's Michael Lane and Pete Fraser. We all know what great fruit and a deft touch equals.

It's got a focus more on dark fruit flavour than their Clare Valley reds, with chewy tannin and a bit more of a broodiness to its personality. Still inherently Adelina in style, it's something a little different - and incredibly delicious.

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.

If your order is placed before 12pm we’ll get it on the truck that day. Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy). PLEASE NOTE that we are currently seeing significant delays in the Australia Post delivery network. Strict government health and safety requirements and very high parcel volumes are causing significant backlogs at the main NSW and VIC sorting facilities. Orders are still arriving safe and sound but you may notice slower delivery times and less frequent scanning updates than usual.

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).
