About
A wine that’s so alive it pulses with energy and vitality.

About The Wine

This stunning Syrah comes from the singular Cobaw Ridge Estate, the only certified organic and biodynamic vineyard in the Macedon Ranges.

This high-altitude site sits around 600m above sea level, yielding Syrah imbued with floral aromatics and spicy flavour profile.

The fruit is always impeccable when it enters the winery, every effort taken in the vineyard by the Coopers to ensure little needs to be done to get an expression of their vineyard in bottle.

This is natural wine made as fine wine. One of Victoria's most interesting expressions of Syrah/Shiraz that will mature beautifully for years to come.

About Cobaw Ridge

Cobaw Ridge was established in 1985 by Alan and Nelly Cooper in the Macedon Ranges.

This estate is the only certified organic and biodynamic producer in the region. Alan firmly believes that great wines are made in the vineyard. The vines come first at Cobaw Ridge. They grow excellent examples of Syrah, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and Australia's most sought-after example of Lagrein.

Over the years Alan's winemaking approach has become more and more minimalist. With sulphur now the only addition in the winery and Alan using more inert vessels such as Qvevri, the Cobaw Ridge Wines have never looked better.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The classic iron fist in a velvet glove. Huge latent power and structure to burn. This wine will reward you even more with age!

With minimal handling pre bottling all the red wine is neither fined nor filtered prior to bottling. No acid additions are required, just low levels of sulphur dioxide at point of bottling. Nothing added, nothing taken away.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Syrah and Macedon Ranges isn’t necessarily synonymous but there’s track record here and a very unique site tucked into native forest on a lift in the ranges where the wind belts through. Sloshy textured, red and black, bramble laced fruit character, white pepper, dusty, clove-woody spice, maraschino cherry and a ferrous, minerally finish with some bitterness and Brazil nut bitterness to finish. Savoury, savoury, savoury. Good gear, but." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"A wine that’s so alive it pulses with energy and vitality. It comes up all savoury and spicy at first, with a damp-forest fragrance, red roses, licorice root, mint chocolate and cedary oak. The fruit within is excellent. It’s elegant across its more mid-weighted palate, the tannins superfine and the finish long. Totally seductive syrah." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Compannion)

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).
