It’s long been a topic of discussion across the burbs of our nation’s largest city, but do Sydneysiders really drink differently according to where they live? During this time of social isolation and staying indoors, a group of passionate wine lovers from Different Drop have set out to answer the questions you’ve all been pondering.
The East: Let’s start with Sydney’s ritzy suburbs, home of big hair and little dogs and apparently, a lot of wine-lovers. According to the data collected by Different Drop The EAST don’t like to keep things bottled up as they are the biggest spenders on wine out of all the suburbs. Pinot Noir is the preferred tipple followed closely by Shiraz and Riesling.
This is an astonishing crack at the popular “Provence” inspired style of Rosé. If you like your pinks dry but full flavoured with delicacy and deliciousness in equal proportion – you’re going to love this!
North Shore: As we travel over the bridge the wine gets a little more Kath & Kim, as North Shore-ites are uncorking “Cardonnay’s” more than ever. Whether it’s enjoying brunch at Balmoral or dinner in Dee Why, Sydners Northerners know how to spot a good Chardonnay when they see one! When the weather cools and the beach-goers pack up a bold red such as a Shiraz is at the top of the list.
Without leaving the house this Chardonnay will transport you to rural France. Jean Bourdy’s family has grown and made wine in the Jura since 1579. His wines are heralded as some of the best value naturally made wines in France. With a core of steely acidity, and some powerhouse fruit flavours The Blanc is a Chardonnay that packs a serious punch.
Inner West: Now we move to what is often referred to as the cultural hub of Sydney, the Inner West. In über-trendy Inner West, where Yuppies and Hipsters co-exist peacefully between lattes and face tattoos, the wine habits are as unique as the residents. Ensuring that they are following the latest trends Sydney’s Inner-West residents love nothing more than sitting back with a Pinot Noir.
Careful, this one is quaffable. We recommend the 2019 Two Tonne Tasmania Ziggurat Pinot Noir. Jubey, juicy, Beaujolais-inspired Pinot Noir from Tasmania. Super value and great drinking for the warmer months.
So if this Daily Addict writer was to read between the wines, us Sydneysiders certainly have a common ground when it comes to the way we drink. Selectively, with class and lovin’ it!
