About

About The Wine

Malbec may have been born in France and made world famous in Argentina, but Australia is home to some sensational Malbecs too.

The rich and opulent wines the grape produces are well suited to local wine lovers who grew up on big South Australian Shiraz.

Marq has absolutely hit the mark with this full-bodied, intensely flavoured yet elegantly poised red.

Malbec is becoming increasingly popular across the country, the thick chewy tannin and lavish flavours that make it so popular are on full display here.

This wine is a steal. It's a beauty.

About Marq Wines

This boutique winery in Margaret River belongs to husband and wife team Mark and Danielle Warren.

The couple is dedicated to the exploration of alternative grape varieties and experimental winemaking techniques ranging out beyond the 'usual suspect' varieties of the Margaret River region.

The wines are all crafted by Mark's hand, and Danielle keeps him on the straight and narrow.

If you're looking to explore some of the smaller producers in Margaret River, their boutique cellar door is a must see.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"It is a full bodied richly flavoured wine with intense sweet fruit. This wine is juicy and fleshy with noticeable oak that adds just an element of grip and structure to this otherwise silky soft wine." - Mark Warren, winemaker

Additional Info

From The Producer

This classic Bordeaux variety has never received its due recognition. It produces wines that are deeply coloured with intense sweet fruit and velvety tannins – everything a good wine should be. It can be viticulturally challenging and perhaps this is why it is more commonly used as a blending variety, but grown on the right site it can yield amazing results.

The grapes are grown in the heart of Margaret River at Willyabrup. The grapes are crushed into small open fermenters and fermented on skins for 14 days before pressing. After a short period of settling in tank the wine is transferred to new, one and two year old barrels for aging for a period of 14 months.

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. 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: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
