About the Wine

If the Marcel Malbec from Chateau du Cedre is the lighter, softer side of Malbec, then the Heritage is its more serious, grown up brother.

Its dark colour gives you a little idea of what to expect within - blue and black berries, a bit of plumminess, firm tannin and a backbone of spice.

If you like your Malbecs big and ballsy, look no further. It'll give Argentinian Malbecs a run for their money.

About Chateau du Cedre

In 1958, Charles Verhaeghe and Marie-Therese Rives decided to plant a hectare of grape vines in their multi-crop farm. This venture didn't pay off until 1973, though, when these two self taught winemakers carried out their first bottling.

Charles' sons, Pascal and Jean-Marc, run the estate now, with Pascal devoting himself to the winemaking and Jean-Marc being caretaker of the vines. They've expanded things a bit at the estate, now having a total of 27 ha of vines - all certified organic since 2012.

Pascal's sons have also caught the winemaking bug and have joined the family business too. Together, their enthusiasm and passion for making top quality wines has brought the estate to being seen as one of the top estates in the Cahors region.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews


"Deep aromas of blueberries, dark plums, mulberries, dried flowers, pine needles and wet earth. Medium-to full-bodied with fine, silky tannins. Structured, but polished, with peppermint and pleasantly bitter chocolate, herb and spice notes at the end. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but will be better in 2024." -

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 02 8376 8775 or 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).
