If wine regions could be twinned like towns and cities, Margaret River and Bordeaux would be the first cabernet off the rank.

Bordeaux blend is a term used to describe largely Cabernet Sauvignon based wines, that tend towards the stately, tannic side of the ledger. McHenry Hohnen's Rolling Stone is a this and more, a representation of four varieties from a biodynamic single vineyard, and one of the Margaret River's great wines.

It shows cassis, wild herbs and dark chocolate, gravelly, dusty tannins, and an exquisitely concentrated palate. A wonderful wine for now or much later.

Rolling Stone represents the pinnacle of our red wine production and is the most authentic expression of Hazel's Vineyard. Biodynamic farming, meticulous vineyard management and the utmost attention to detail in the winery deliver a wine that speaks of our land.

The nose is a display of fragrant violet, black currant and blueberry confection complemented by savoury notes of black olive tapenade, tobacco leaf and dusty dark chocolate. The palate is opulent yet refined, combining tense dark fruits and sweet spice with firm gravelly tannins providing impressive length. Made in very limited quantities, this wine expresses the pure essence of our remarkable southern Margaret River site - Hazel’s Vineyard.

96 Points - "Deepish red colour with a tint of purple. The bouquet is chocolaty and cedary, Bordelais oak-infused complexity, the palate full-bodied and stately, with good density and drying, savoury tannins. A marvellously elegant, complex, multi-dimensional red, cabernet-driven and follows the Bordeaux model closely. A terrific glass of wine now and for many years hence." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

97 Points - "It sits on the bolder side of medium weight, but it's superbly elegant and superbly persistent. It presents a velvety flow of blackcurrant, dark chocolate, gravel, peppercorn and wood smoke-like flavours and, while the pull of tannin is strong, the flow of fruit will not be halted. Sensational example of a Margaret River cabernet blend." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
