Description

When making wine, Remi Guise wastes nothing. His philosophy is what he calls, "Berry to Stalk", the idea resembling that of the 'nose to tail' movement now so popular in cuisine.

His 'Marrow' Syrah Malbec is a gorgeous, sumptuous example of the benefits of his practice. He co-ferments the two varieties with some whole bunches, creating a seamlessly integrated wine from the beginning of the process.

The 2017 has an 'old world' edge to it, with the emphasis squarely on savouriness, elegance and charisma. I was sucked in by this wine when tasting, a beautiful thing that Remi has created.

A medium bodied red blend made from hand-picked Syrah and Malbec Grapes. Part of the harvest was fermented as whole-bunches, submerged under the remainder of the fruit, which was cold-crushed on top. After a two day cold-soak the fruit was warmed and fermentation began.

After 10 days on skin the wine was basket pressed and allowed to finish fermentation in barrel. The wine was barrel aged for 10 months, during which the barrels underwent battonage every four weeks. The wine was then removed from barrel, clarified and bottled.

94 Points - "Anticipated releases from this tearaway Margaret River wine producer! Savoury red of silky texture, mellow flow, succulence in tannins, cool acidity, really even red berry-red cherry fruit flavours, layers of brown spice, dried herb, bergamot tea character. I like this. It’s a charming wine, unfurls beautifully, shows plenty of detail, sets a benchmark for Margaret River syrah. Almost pinot-esque, one could say. Shake that thought, it’s a fine wine of refined feel and savouriness. Great stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

94 Points - "As of '17, Marrow's fruit is sourced from a different vineyard in the subregion of Wallcliffe and for the first time, is 100% syrah, as opposed to the malbec used to bolster previous renditions. What a fabulous wine. Heady aromas of warm earth and gravel, red fruits, florals and woodsy spices. It's medium-bodied, complex yet appearing effortless; succulent and savoury with super fine tannins." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

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.
