About The Wine

Here is the first release of a premium reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Remi Guise.

During his time working with Bruce Dukes at Domaine Naturaliste, Remi has gotten plenty of experience crafting top end, cellar-worthy Cabernet. His own entrant into the upper echelon of the region is wildly successful. It's slinky, packed with dark berry fruit and a wall of epic, moreish tannin, yet it remains supple and easily approachable in its youth also.

The nose is a seductive blend of violets, gum leaves and sweet currants - it's classic Margaret River from a rising young gun. With 97 points from James Halliday, it's a very serious debut.

About tripe.Iscariot

Remi Guise is starting something very compelling in Western Australia.

His idea for tripe.Iscariot centres around the thesis that from 'berry to stalk' the whole of the plant should be used in the winemaking process.

No waste, no 'cleaning up' of the wines. Driving to make the most character filled and unique wines that any site can produce.

The wines are fascinating and complex alt-stylings of undervalued Margaret River varieties.

Dig in, this is a project to keep a close eye on.

The Wine Front

"This is the top tier red from Tripe.Iscariot, a wonderful project out of Margaret River from the clever head of winemaker Remi Giuse. This one comes out of Wilyabrup. It’s a tale of elegance and power. Incredibly rich but refined flavours, fine ropes of cedar-laced tannins, exceptional length, that sense of precision that great cabernert wines can get. Aromas of cassis, bay and gum leaf, dark chocolate, cedar-clove oak and sea spray. At first the wine feels a little laden with oak but fruit character rises to the task and it feels more bedrock than feature – a caveat to hold off drinking for an hour or so. The tannins are the lingering thing – superb here. Wonderful expression." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

"From Wilyabrup, Houghton clone, open-fermented, 50% pressed to oak after 14 days, the other half kept on skins in a topped up and sealed fermenter for just under 100 days, aged in French barriques (60% new) for 15 months after blending. This has worked to perfection, giving the best of both worlds: flowery, fragrant, juicy cassis dances around the basement of ripe tannins and other fruit-based extract." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com 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).
