Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Mark Messenger aims to craft fine, elegant cabernet sauvignon, and it helps that the Wilyabrup vineyard has some decent vine age - planted in '73. It forms 88% of the blend with petit verdot, malbec and merlot doing their bit for more complexity. Regional flavours of mulberries, currants, cassis, florals and eucalypt are perfectly pitched to the cedary and integrated oak, flowing through to the medium-full-bodied palate where the poised tannins await." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Pencil and perfume, dark fruit, earthy and complex, touch of choc-mint, vanilla and eucalyptus. Full bodied, dense and packed with beautiful round gravelly tannin, sweet black and red fruits – a spectrum – black olive and tobacco savouries, bright but balanced acidity, and excellent length. It rolls and thunders, but remains calm throughout. Quality of tannin is a highlight." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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.

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 and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?
