About The Wine

Bruce Dukes' winemaking starts literally from the ground up.

The man has been obsessed with growing things for over two decades and it shows in every wine he makes. His roots have been put down in Margaret River, and as such he has immense insight into what the balance of soil, aspect and clone can do to a wine in this part of the world. One of his great loves is Margaret River Cabernet - and with this wine, we can definitely see why.

He explained to us, "Rebus is a picture puzzle that when you look at it, the solution is not immediately apparent, there may be several solutions. That’s why I love Margaret River Cabernet - it’s constantly changing and it keeps me constantly challenged."

If you love Margaret River Cabernet, you are going to fall in love with this wine.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine crafted to stay true to its heritage as an icon of the Margaret River region. Our first release was in 2012. Since then, Rebus has made friends with people and proteins across Australia.

An intricate tapestry of glazed cherries, violets and graphite, deftly woven into a palate laden with flavours of red currants, cacao nib and plum skin. Bristling tannin on the entry and a tensile core of liquorice, black berries and slate, culminates in a persistent and ever-changing mineral finish.

ABV : 13.8%
Closure : Cork
Bottle Size : 1500ml

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

94Points
The Wine Front

"This is what Margaret River Cabernet is all about, and at a very fair price too. Dark fruit, some raspberry freshness, bay leaf and fragrant dried herb, cocoa and spice. Medium bodied, chocolaty and fresh with mixed berries, clean well integrated acidity, and persistent tannin that has density and impact, but feels smooth and toothsome. Finish is fresh, ripe and long. Super wine. You’re laughing." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front, Tasted 2016)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Medium-weight tipping into full-bodied. Blackberry, wood smoke, cassis, bay and gravel-like notes make a confident sweep through the palate, taking grainy tannin in their stride." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
