About The Wine

This is one of the better versions of Montepulciano you will find anywhere in Australia at the moment.

This is organically certified fruit from McLaren Vale. Monte is such a perfect variety for McLaren Vale, it loves the warm days during harvest.

And it's such a great variety for Australia - the combination of rich fruit and spicy/savoury finish that is typical of the variety complements modern Australian cuisine perfectly.

Mike Bennie awarded this 93 points. 

It's serious yet seriously smashable.

About Lino Ramble

Lino Ramble is the exciting creation of eccentric duo Andy Coppard (Winemaker) and Angela Townsend (self-proclaimed "Engine Driver") born amongst the picturesque landscape of McLaren Vale.

Their wines are built on the philosophy that "The right variety grown in right place, farmed in a sustainable fashion" is going to produce the best fruit and it looks like a winning formula.

They focus on the classic Rhone varieties that have built the reputation of "The Vale" as well as adventuring into the realms of the likes of Nero d'Avola, Saperavi and Nebbiolo. Their wines have a distinct, textural feel, are brilliantly packaged and first class value for money.

The Wine Front

"Deep perfume, fragrant with plum, dark cherry, black pepper, some cranberry and new leather. Slurpy texture with bright acidity underlying, good concentration of flavour, pippy cherry characters, lick of chocolatey-oak character, but not overly overt, just a sense of some wood chew and spice. Nice tannins through the wine, ripe, then a chomp to finish. Good example here. Touch of class but still brilliant drinkability." - 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?

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).
