this is a high-quality wine by any standards...

About the Wine

Aussie Nebbiolo has come a long way in the past few years, and this is one of the best value examples around.

This comes from the excellent Malakoff Vineyard in the Pyrenees - a site known for quality Nebbiolo - and the extremely capable winemaking talents of Adam Louder.  It's made very simply - picked at the right time, 28 days on skins and then into older oak.  It's bottled unfined and unfiltered - it's a simple but very effective formula.

With impressive reviews from James Halliday and Mike Bennie, this is one of the best value Nebbs around.  Just 100 dozen made and the ultimate introduction to what makes Nebbiolo so adored.

About SubRosa

Adam Louder's career has been a long and prestigious one even though he is only in his mid-30s. With more than 30 vintages under his belt, he has worked with some true masters during his time at the press. From the early days under Trevor Mast at Mount Langhi Ghiran to Araujo Estate owned by Chateau Latour in the Napa Valley, to Chateau Carsin in Bordeaux and Pierro and Xanadu in Margaret River, the man has worked in world-class wineries his entire career.

Now, alongside his wife Nancy Panter, his own label SubRosa is breaking through with a characterful range of charming wines from Victoria.  Working with a number of excellent vineyards in Grampians and the Pyrenees, SubRosa's specialty is Shiraz, with some more than impressive Nebbiolo, Chardonnay and Viognier playing second fiddle.

The wines are made in a very hands-off fashion and in tiny quantities - this is an exciting project which should have a close eye kept on it.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Coming to the end of a day's tasting, nebbiolo tannins and fill the mouth like fast-drying cement.  But this is a high-quality wine by any standards, complete with violets on the bouquet, sumptuous dark fruits and millimetre perfect tannins." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Rich scents of ash, dark cherry, game meat, leather straps, anise. Evocative, dense fog of savouriness and fruit. Medium weight, light concentration, savoury flavours, more of the game meat, medicinal cherry fruitiness, fine ropes of suede tannin, finishes with a burst of fresh-feeling acidity and some nice bitterness. Glorious drinking." - 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 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. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney.

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).
