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 Tillie J Pinot Noir

Fresh, vigorous Yarra Valley Pinot Noir, the second release from Natallie Johnston, as a side project from her main role as assistant winemaker at Giant Steps.

Only the lightest red in colour, with pretty floral aromatics and a zippy palate, this is thirst quenching Pinot that could take a small chill in warmer weather but is definitely not a simple park wine.

About 10-15% whole bunch and small percentage of new french oak, bottled unfined and unfiltered.

2020 Aphelion The Confluence Grenache

Crafting McLaren Vale Grenache is the main game for Rob Mack and Louise Rhodes at Aphelion. It's a game they are very skilled at. Every egg a bird, as they say.

Sourced predominantly from gnarly, 80-year-old bush vines rooted in the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs, this fresh and vital version of Grenache is set decidedly to a "Drink-Me-Now" tempo. It's the composite blend of the three Aphelion Grenaches, combining both the 100% whole berry and 100% whole bunch wines into one seamless wine.

2020 Adelina Field Blend

The Field Blend is an unusual blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro, Ugni Blanc, Roussanne and Carignan, from a now-certified organic vineyard above the Adelina winery in the Clare Valley.

The vines (originally Cabernet) were planted back in 1976, then in 2015 Col and Jen grafted them over to this mad selection of red and white Rhone varieties. They picked the lot together, fermented them together and bottled the result after six months in oak. Just 600 odd bottles produced.

It's a light but savoury red wine, with delicious bright red fruit, a hint of mint, and soft graphitey tannins. A strange yet lovely offering from this star Clare Valley producer.

2017 Domaine Labranche Laffont Madiran

El Rojo (meaning The Red in Spanish) is a whole lot of fun for husband and wife duo Andries and Yoko Lüscher-Mostert to make.

The fruit was handpicked from one of Frankland River's premier vineyards. Bush vine Tempranillo with a motley crew of Shiraz, Mencia, Counoise and Cinsault were on offer. They fermented all the fruit naturally as whole bunches and carefully concocted the blend to get the perfect mix of delicious ripe fruit and spice.

It has (as the name suggests) a distinctly Spanish 'feel'; savoury and herbal yet light and energetic. But a wine like this isn't to be judged, it is meant to be drunk with gusto - with a slight chill on it if you like.

2020 Jed Malbec

This ripping little red is sourced from vineyards in the cooler Uco Valley of Mendoza, where some of the finest wines in the region are produced. The deep, luscious fruit is the focus of the wine, with oak taking a back seat.

This is great value for lovers of bold, robust reds. The perfect big, pillowy glass of red for any night of the week.

2019 Dune Blewitt Springs Shiraz

The Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale typically producers a softer, more approachable style of Shiraz.

Brothers Duncan and Peter Lloyd are making the most of the regional characteristics here to deliver a McLaren Vale Shiraz that can be enjoyed immediately, as opposed to the more hulking full-bodied styles that look best with a few years under their belt.

This is made with very little interference from the boys. The fruit quality of the stellar 2019 vintage doing all the work.

It's a ripe yet easy drinking Shiraz which will be very difficult to put down.

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).
