Arriving in Uruguay with Basque settlers in the 19th century, Tannat’s a red grape with thick skins, offering perfect protection from the wet Atlantic winds.

Garzon’s stunning winery and restaurant are just inland from the coast, with a range of reds perfectly matched to star Argentinian chef Francis Mallman’s open fire cooking.

With its approachable flavours of dusty dark cherry, bramble and spice this is well judged and supple, with just enough structure.

Located in the Garzon subzone of the larger Maldonado region, the hillside vineyards of Bodega Garzon are located 25km inland from the Atlantic Ocean on the Punta del Este.

The Reserva is made from 100% Tannat, Uruguay's celebrated red grape.

Fermentation takes place in large concrete tanks with ageing for 6-12 months in a mix of French oak barrels and casks.

17 Points - "Very dark crimson, almost black at the core. Dark fruit that is ripe yet counterbalanced by a lovely stone-dust freshness. This has become more refined and complex since I tasted it in embryonic form 18 months ago. There is still a rich foundation of black fruit but also a touch of pepper and a delicate floral character, or perhaps it is lavender. Still plenty of firm and very fine tannins, juicy too and persistent. This is now at a perfect moment for drinking, especially with food, but is clearly going to continue to age well, and longer than I first thought. The oak has died back to reveal the key components of this wine: the fresh dark fruit, the super-fine but shaping tannins and that mineral quality that adds more freshness.'' - Julia Harding (Jancis Robinson)

92 Points - "Dark berries with blanched almonds and violets on the nose. Medium to full body. Fine, integrated tannins and a silky texture. Lovely length and juiciness." - James Suckling (James Suckling)

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.
