About

About The Wine

Since its inception this range of wines has consistently over-delivered in the "bang-for-your-buck" stakes, and this Cab Merlot blend is no exception.

It's a bargain. It's sourced from a single vineyard in the Walcliffe sub-region of Margaret River, but it really isn't a wine on which to analyse the winemaking details. It's just so fun and juicy, with waves of dark fruit flavours and enough herbal character to show its Margaret River origins.

It's top quality drinking at a very reasonable price. The perfect mid-week Cab Merlot tipple. Enjoy.

About Amato Vino

Brad Wehr's Amato Vino label is equal parts traditional and experimental.

On one hand, his wines exemplify the best of classic Margaret River varieties, delivered at great prices. On the other hand, he's exploring new varieties and new winemaking techniques, constantly pushing and innovating.

Brad's wines have a wild streak and are some of the more engaging and authentic wines we have seen from Margaret River.

The essential red blend of Margaret River. There’s nothing better than some rich dark chocolate, dense blackcurrant with a touch of stylish French oak. Add a splash of plummy Merlot to flesh it out and Cabernet Merlot is hard to beat.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Vibrant black/red colour. On the nose dark mint chocolate leaps from the glass, tobacco leaf, mocha and pencilly oak. Dense and chewy blackcurrant aromas join generous red/blue fruits and eastern spice. The palate shows satsuma plum and spice – star anise, cardamom, cinnamon. The creamy mouthfeel is generous and inviting, soft acid and gentle tannin assisting. Briary red/black-fruits to lead to a long finish." - Brad Wehr, winemaker

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 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. 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).
