About The Pack

This pack is designed as a tour de force of different white wine style from around the globe.

Each is made by one of the premier artisans of their respected regions and offers a very high quality example of the variety and region.

Each will cellar beautifully. Each could be drunk now and enjoyed immensely. 

The producers? How about Dry River, Domaine Huet and even our own Semillon genius from Tyrrell's...

Six whites here to blow your hair back. Only a very limited quantity available.

2016 Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon

"Vat 1 delivers again."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


Tyrrell's just do things right. And they might do Semillon more right than anything else.

The Vat 1 is already wonderfully complex with youthful flavours of citrus zest, lemon curd, and semi-mature characters of toast, almond and honey. The seamless and long palate flows with pristine waxiness and intense, primary fruit. What a wine.

Only very small amount released, so make sure you grab some Australian wine history.

2020 Dry River Chardonnay

"A powerful wine with impressive purity.
- Bob Campbell (The Real Review)


Dry River Chardonnays can be big, structured wines that almost always need extended time in bottle before approaching. This release is starting to emerge like a powerful butterfly.

Vibrant white flower blossoms, lemon and grapefruit flavours are fully on show, along with some creamy, lightly spicy oak.

Some nutty, chalky notes on the nose, plus some initial struck-match aromas. This is an ageworthy Chardonnay of definition and class, and rarity.

2019 Arnot Roberts Watson Ranch Chardonnay

"This fractured, well-drained calcareous soil, coupled with organicfarming and cool windy conditions, imbue this parcel with great potential to produce world-class Chardonnay."
- Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts (Arnot Roberts)

Watson Ranch Vineyard is perched on a steep hillside at the southernmost end of the Napa Valley. Exposed and unprotected from the elements, this wind-whipped site was planted in 1993.

Soils at Watson Ranch are composed of calcareous clay over limestone. This soil type is extremely rare on the North Coast but shows itself in a narrow fin at the tail end of the Vaca Mountains in Southern Napa County.

Organically farmed, this Chardonnay is quite the antithesis of the style that has made Napa famous. With its high natural acidy, and mineral core, this is much more akin to the wines of Chablis, than the fuller, and broader style that Napa is known for.

2019 Clemens Busch Marienburg Grosses Gewachs Rothenpfad Riesling

"A very exciting wine already, the long finish as clear as a mountain stream. Great potential."
- Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com)

The Rothenpfad plot within the greater Marienburg vineyard is slightly higher up the slope, above the railway viaduct. It's full of red slate, giving the wines incredibly acidity and a distinct spicy character.

It's got a mountain stream, alpine feel, with the fruit spectrum staying on the lemon, lime and grapefruit side, rather than on the tropical.It's an astonishingly crisp, clear, crystalline wine with decades ahead of it in the cellar.

One of the best Rieslings you could ever put your hands on.

2020 Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Mont Sec

Of their three sites, Huet's steep rocky Le Mont vineyard produces their most linear, racy wines, but with plenty of layered, golden richness. This is the where to go for great Sec and Demi-Sec Vouvray, with crystalline purity and punch.

This is just at the start of its life, but early drinkers will revel in its fleshy youth, with citrus, chalk and floral elements.

Lip-smackingly crunchy yet satisfyingly textural. Just 5-6 grams of residual sugar, so very much a dry Sec style.

2020 Luis Seabra Xisto Cru Branco Douro

"It's epic. It's complex as. It's a full sense experience yet so balanced and fine. Unreal."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

This is the top white wine in the Seabra stable.

It's a phenomenal wine. Seabra believes that the main variety in this blend, Rabigato, is the perfect vessel to convey the distinctive characteristics of the schisty slopes (hence Xisto).

The vines are 70 - 80 years old. The farming is all chemical-free. The wine is made with purity at the front of mind.

It's difficult to convey the power and persistence of the Xisto Cru. It feels like you are drinking a freight-train of minerals, stones and waxy/honeyed stonefruits. There is only a very small amount available in Australia, and it won't last long.

Rightfully so, it's absolutely brilliant.

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.
