About The Wine

In a region steeped in tradition, it is heartening to see innovation in winemaking and varietal selection here from Brad Wehr in Margaret River.

The fruit for the Amato Vino Teroldego - say that three times fast - is sourced from a single vineyard near Yallingup in Margaret River. 20% of the fruit is whole bunch fermented and sat on skins for 21 days. It sees 18 months in oak, but due to a characteristic of the variety which has a distinctive “oaky character” anyway, it only sees old wood.

Ripe, unapologetic and oozing a bombastic persona, this is one great little wine that will have your dinner guests asking plenty of questions.

In essence, it's a delicious, food-friendly red with big personality.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Deep, brooding colour. Dark black/red fruits dominate the nose: blackberry, dark plum, mulberry…tarry/charry and spicy, with heady perfume and brambly earth and dried herbs adding to the mix. Hints of cedar/pine and a dust pencilly oak character – a fruit-derived varietal character rather than any influence from the aged oak in which the wine matured. Hits the high notes with floral tones, and the bass notes with intense fruit concentration.

The palate is structured and firm, however whilst acid/tannins are in clear evidence the palate is densely packed and sweet-fruited, showing blackberry, dense plums, eastern spice, tar, black cherry and cola. A bold wine, upright and structured, yet approachable in its youth. Best enjoyed with food.

20% wholebunch, daily hand-plunging 21 days on skins. Basketpressed to aged French oak for 18 months

Only 175 dozen made from a single vineyard plot near Yallingup.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"From the Riverland project. A light-bodied, red-fruited lush combo of savoury & sweet, showing complex flavours from earth/meat to spice/florals; with snappy acidity and a seductive, moreish palate. Enjoy it young. Only 175 dozen made." - Brad Wehr, winemaker

Halliday Wine Companion

"Fruit from a single vineyard in Yallingup. 25 days on skins, matured for 16 months in seasoned French oak. Inky in the glass and throwing up aromas of blood, red gravel, satsuma plum and salted licorice. The palate is exactly this, with an additional graphite/lead pencil character from the mid palate onwards. The tannins are plush, the wine is ripe; this is as the name suggests, a bear. Big and verging on furry, but with enough wild rusticity and muscle in the tannins to make it both interesting and authentic." - Erin Larkin (Halliday Wine Companion)

Top wine, exciting find

My first encounter with this maker and variety. Both impressed. Ultra dark purple colour tells you’re about to dive into a rich ripe beauty. Black fruits and then what smells like Cabernet until you recall the maker saying the same cedar notes are characteristic of the variety. Ripe medium-full bodied palate with gravelly tannins reminiscent of Brunello. With air, the nose shows mineral/ earthy notes, akin to Barbera, that offset the ripe fruit nicely.

A full noise wine. Put ‘Oh Black Betty’ on and let it rip!

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. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
