Description

A tiny production, single-vineyard wine, the fruit for this was sourced from the best parcel of Cabernet on the Mt Panorama vineyard.

Cabernet at its finest here, with dark fruit, black olives, tobacco, and herbs - it is varietal through and through. A thoroughly structured wine, with loads of concentrated fruit and a not shy dose of new oak influences intertwined, all held together by a sheath of tight tannins.

With exceptional length and a mouth filling texture, this is truly cool-climate Cabernet at its finest expression, age-worthy to the max.

The Cabernet grapes were picked at least two weeks earlier than usual on 23 March. The grapes were cold soaked for 5 days before crushing and adding cultured yeasts. The grapes were crushed with the rollers closed and transferred to an open 1 tonne fermenter. Three quarters of the way through their primary ferment, some of the free run was transferred to one new French puncheon and one old barrique. After 15 months in oak, the wine was lightly filtered and bottled in late July 2019.

94 Points - "Succulent, ribbed with fine tannins, bright acidity, orange peel in dark chocolate in black currants, etched with emery board texture and impossibly long. Wow factor here. Depth yet finesse, lovely, lovely wine here." 94+ points Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

96 Points - "This is exceptional cool-climate cabernet, somehow transcending the green edges of its blended sibling to showcase a sheath of impeccably tuned tannins, ripe and juicy. This makes all the difference! Spearmint, blackcurrant, olive, chilli, bay leaf and a swathe of firm, saliva-sapping tannins driving a long finish. Already delicious, its precocity belies the depth and longevity herein." Ned Goodwin (Halliday Wine Companion)

    From the start it shows very nice colour and a presence of enticing aromas of mellowing dark fruits. A taste of olives black with possible hints of tobacco. The mouth tastes blackberries with oak also present.Appears to have very nice tannins with a long finish - just enjoyable to drink with a meaty meal.

Renzaglia

In 1982, defying the odds, Guy and Betty Renzaglia planted Illinois' first vines in Alto Pass.

Their son Mark joined the fight, later establishing Bella Luna vineyard in Australia's untouched O'Connell Valley with his wife Sandy. Today, their son Sam carries the torch, expanding Bella Luna while prioritizing a healthy ecosystem.

Through composting, cover crops, and respecting native fauna, they craft exceptional wines while fostering a thriving environment for generations to come.

Ordering

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.
