About

About The Wine

Sue Bellwether is one of Coonawarra's most exciting new producers.

She is taking a fresh look at one of the country's most traditional winemaking scenes and making some cracking wines while she's at it. This is her take on the famous Coonawarra Cabernet.

Whilst not trying to re-invent the wheel, Sue handcrafts this wine every step of the way. From hand-picking to the slow, delicate basket pressing, this is designed as a pure, expressive example of one of Australia's most iconic wine styles. Released with a little extra time in bottle, the 2013 is only just starting to show its best but will develop wonderfully over time if you have the patience.

About Bellwether

Bellwether is the creation of Sue Bell - a woman regarded as one of the country's most talented (and hard-working) winemakers.

Based in Coonawarra where she now works out of an iconic old shearing shed, Sue works with a range of growers and vineyards around South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania to put together her unique range of wines.

All are made very much by hand, with minimal intervention in the winery and a focus on capturing the essence of each variety, site and season.

Wonderful wines well worth getting to know!

Critic Reviews

DDS review

This is quintessential Coonawarra Cabernet. Notes of black olive, earth, blackcurrant and a twist of muddled mint. So long and finely structured. It feels powerful yet graceful. The oak sits perfectly in the frame. All in all, just a stunning snapshot of what Coonawarra is capable of. - Different Drop Wine Team

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).
