About

About The Wine

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.

About 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 said himself, "The range and quality of his wines is extraordinary, the prices irresistible."

From The Producer

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.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
