Description

Cabernet Franc is stepping out of the shadows. Some of the country's most exciting Bordeaux styled wines are being made from this grape, and to be perfectly franc, we are loving it!

The fourth release of a Blue Poles Reserve Cabernet Franc is excellent. This is a wine of precision and startling refinement, clearly a leading Australian example of the charming variety.

The devout Blue Poles members have snapped up most of it so these are some of the last remaining bottles in the country

f you are loving the Franc Revolution, you really need to try this wine, at least once.

On opening you feel a weight of fruit lift above the rim – not just the Cabernet Franc violets and spice that usually reach you first – more of a concentrate of cassis and blueberry which lies like a deep dark floor from which the lighter flavours move up and float above. Coaxed from the glass becomes the spice and florals that whisper rather than yell. Tasting it for the first time you note the deep richness as it rolls from front to back, tannins taking space and squaring off this sinistral wind of fruit and acid. The length is the fruit flavours you can hint upon at every step – blackcurrant and blueberry roll down the line..

95 Points - "I like the 2019 red wines from Margaret River. I find the best examples to have an extra dimension of small berried intensity, and ‘minerality’, for want of a better word.

Blackcurrant, raspberry, dried flower perfume, pencils, a flutter of aniseed and dried herb. It’s tight and compact, with a distinct ‘mineral’ and slate feel, firm cool glassy acidity, all the pencil and a little baking spice. Tannin is firm and gravelly on a long fresh finish. Coiled up, sophisticated, no excess. Pretty serious in 2019, and one of the best releases to date for my tastes." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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.
