Description

Great Southern is an underrated region when it comes to Cabernet blends, and this great little Cab Malbec from Larry Cherubino is a perennial bargain.

Larry always picks the fruit for this blend with freshness and easy-drinkability in mind, with work done in the winery to soften the tannins and create one of the more approachable (and delicious) Cabernet Malbec blends around.

It's the perfect go-to for mid-week drinking. There's richness here but freshness too.

Outstanding value from the king of WA bargain wine.

Fruit was hand-picked and crushed to static, stainless steel fermenters via the sorting table. Alcohol fermentation lasted for three weeks with very gentle maceration. The time on skins allowed for softening of the tannins. Components were aged for 10 months in a combination of new and 1-2 year old French oak barrels prior to blending and bottling.

Larry Cherubino

Larry Cherubino is one of the real superstar winemakers of Western Australia.

Sourcing fruit from established vineyards throughout Margaret River and Great Southern, Larry waves his wand to craft what is one of the most consistently high quality and comprehensive wine ranges in the country.

The wines all deliver bankable quality at every price point. The acclaim from Australia's wine media will tell you just that.

As James Halliday once said himself, "The range and quality of his wines is extraordinary, the prices irresistible."

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.
