About The Wine

For lovers of rich red wines with soul, and those who look for those small batch gems, this wine from Dylan Arvidson is going to knock your socks off.

After two months on skins, the full dark fruited spectrum of flavours available in Petit Verdot have come to the fore. Dylan makes this with a gentle hand, nursing a single barrel through to bottle. Minimal inputs resulting in maximum impact.

Margaret River produces some of the country's finest wines from Bordeaux varieties and this ranks among the best local examples of Petit Verdot you will find.

With 93 points from Gary Walsh and only 33 dozen made, this little gem won't be around for long.

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

"Packs a bit of tannin and lively acidity, in with cherry and chocolate, peat and dark spices. Rich and thick (like so many people), though not particularly heavy, having a certain vigorous dash and derring-do, not least for a Petit Verdot. Dried herbs and earth on the finish, with a whiff of floral perfume as it goes. Like this a lot. Plenty of crunch and interest."

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).
