About The Wine

This wine was made as a tip of a cap to the energetic, mid-weight red wines of the Loire Valley.

Michael Downer has been making big moves over the last few years looking for more drinkability in his reds wines. Keeping them fresh and light on their feet. This fits nicely into that brief.

It's Cabernet Franc made to be drunk in the warmer months, with a chill if you like. Loads of sweet berries and a lilting floral perfume. It's a sublime Summery red wine that's going to be a huge crowd pleaser.

About Murdoch Hill

Murdoch Hill is a family-owned winery captained by talented young winemaker Michael Downer.

Downer splits the range in two: his clean-cut, consistently high-quality ‘Estate’ wines are excellent value and perpetually reliable, and his quirky, adventurous ‘Artisan’ wines which offer an alt-styling and different shades of the region.

With the combination of high-quality Adelaide Hills fruit grown on the family estate and the undoubted talent in the winery, this is a Hills producer on the up and up!

DDS review

Joyful red wine here. Sweet redcurrants and fresh blackberries, a hint of mint and a soft violet lift. In the mouth it sits plump but medium-bodied. Super fine tannin and a smooth finish that cleans up nicely. Refreshing in its style and fun to drink. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Hello. Pretty perfume dabbles in mulberry and blueberry fruitiness with green herb, pepper and faint cinnamon. Intrigue. The palate is bright in fruit flavour, pretty simple but easy appeal, just a little creamy then finishes chalky and mouth-watering at once. Peppery notes linger. Really pleasing, fresh-feeling and just generally very appealing." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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).
