About The Wine

The White Wolf of Cumbria Red is a Jared Dixon's all-purpose red blend built from Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot.

It fits right in the modern, juicy red wine category. Jam packed with sweet blue fruit and spice - it's hard to see anyone not liking this.

It's a more approachable style of 'Bordeaux blend', with the smooth and spicy drinkability of Tempranillo taking centre stage.

The 2018 release is beautifully packaged and downright scrumptious to drink.

About Jilly Wines

Jared Dixon is a lone ranger on his own mission in the New England wine region.

His wines are made from interesting varieties grown on unique vineyards, sites he classes as ‘undiscovered gems.’ His winemaking is extremely hands-off, allowing the full expression of the fruit to be the focus of every wine. They are fun, don't take themselves too seriously and have a distinct energy about them.

Jared is one of Northern NSW's most exciting and impassioned young winemakers. Where he takes his idiosyncratic label from here is anyone's guess.

The Wine Front

"Fragrant red of forest berry fruits, sweet spice, herbal notes, rose petal characters and some earthiness in the mix too – perfume and palate in synch. From the lovely start you segue to a sloshy textured palate, though a  building chew of tannins helps shape things and fresh acidity ties the wine together well. Overall, a satisfying, vibrant red of bright flavours and good sense of ‘energy’. Lots going on, including high drinkability. Charisma plus." - 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? No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. 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 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.

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.

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).
