About The Wine

Remi Guise sourced a few small parcels of fruit from across southern Margaret River for this wine.

The majority was Grenache fruit, with some smaller portions of Syrah, Malbec, Chenin Blanc, and Marsanne thrown in the mix.

All fermented as whole berries, all spending some days or weeks on skins. This is a fascinating wine from this region. It says much more about Remi's style than it does anything particularly regional.

Firmly structured, glassy fruit, a touch of herb and fantastic length - there's a lot to like here. This is a highly expressive lo-fi wine for the intellectual Grenache fan. Only 85 dozen made.

About tripe.Iscariot

Remi Guise is starting something very compelling in Western Australia.

His idea for tripe.Iscariot centres around the thesis that from 'berry to stalk' the whole of the plant should be used in the winemaking process.

No waste, no 'cleaning up' of the wines. Driving to make the most character filled and unique wines that any site can produce.

The wines are fascinating and complex alt-stylings of undervalued Margaret River varieties.

Dig in, this is a project to keep a close eye on.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Hand-picked parcels of fruit, from a variety of vineyards, was destemmed and fermented as whole berries, each batch being kept separate. The Grenache parcel had 10% of the stalks added back to the ferment.

All batches spent approximately 12 days on skin, after which they were basket pressed straight to barrel where they completed fermentation. The parcels were then barrel aged 14 months, during which time the barrels underwent battonage every four weeks.

The wine was then blended from barrel, clarified and bottled.

The Wine Front

"Charming drink of perky berry-cherry nature, faint earthiness, a lift of floral stuff. You’d say texture is crunchy, acidity perky, crisp fruit the forte and a refreshment factor in the mix of commentary. There’s sour cherry, green herbs, pepper, anise rolling around here. Better with a chill, I wager, though it’s great as is, and geez, it is so easy to drink. More thanks." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Light, Refreshing, Dinner Drink

Smooth taste with a lengthy finish. Cherry, dark fruits and slight peppery spice. This is the kind of wine you would want to pair with your roast meats and dinner meals. An excellent wine to chat about on the dining table.

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).
