About The Wine

The Il Pinko Rosé is made from 100% biodynamically farmed Syrah, grown on the picturesque Cobaw Ridge estate vineyard.

The cool-climate of the Macedon Ranges produces Syrah of elegance and spice. When turned into a Rosé you get a wine of quiet complexity and detail.

This is fermented in terracotta qvevri (Georgian amphora) and old French oak barrels, left on lees and bottled with a touch of sulphur.

It's an enchanting Rosé, superbly balanced and delicious to drink.

About Cobaw Ridge

Cobaw Ridge was established in 1985 by Alan and Nelly Cooper in the Macedon Ranges.

This estate is the only certified organic and biodynamic producer in the region. Alan firmly believes that great wines are made in the vineyard. The vines come first at Cobaw Ridge. They grow excellent examples of Syrah, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and Australia's most sought-after example of Lagrein.

Over the years Alan's winemaking approach has become more and more minimalist. With sulphur now the only addition in the winery and Alan using more inert vessels such as Qvevri, the Cobaw Ridge Wines have never looked better.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Produced from syrah from Cobaw Ridge’s biodynamic estate, it’s raised in both old oak and qvevri (amphora). It’s a serious rendition of the allegedly frivolous wine style of rose. Indeed, this is one that drinks a charm ice cold, but just as well approaching ‘room temperature’.Pale garnet colour, a touch hazy, but very bright and inviting. Scents of brambles, raspberry, sour cherry, rose hip tea. Leans down the rose hip tea and sour cherry flavour spectrum too, holding fine shape with silty tannins and perky, mouth-watering acidity. It has such vitality to it, tinged with savouriness and decidedly in that lean, light and pure feeling zone, with some beautiful sour-sweetness too. Superb rose." - 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?

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?

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).
