About The Wine

As the Eden Valley embraces Australia's trend toward drinking more medium bodied styles of red wines, we are going to see a lot more of these Italian varieties popping up from the region. And if they are anything like the Frederick Stevenson Montepulciano, that is a very, very good thing.

This young vineyard just outside Angaston is blossoming, and winemaker Steve Crawford is reaping the benefits. This great release beautifully illustrates the variety's subtle herbal characters and complex mash-up of sweet and savoury fruit, and melds it with the concentration and length for which the Eden Valley is known.

It's a great look at this emerging Italian variety on Australian shores.

Additional Info

From The Producer

From the Eden Valley.

Fruit sourced from Tim Fechner's property, just north of Angaston.

Stewed plum, orange peel, bay leaves, liquorice straps and amaro (vecchio amaro del capo - personal favourite) is pretty predominant on the nose.

Round and plush mouthfeel upfront, with the characters from the nose carrying through to the palate, to fine grained / tightly woven tannin centred in the middle of the tongue. The mulberry like acid lingers on the tongue, with slight flavours of dried garrigue herbs coming through.

Poor limestone soil, +/- 350m above sea level, picked late in April.

Hand picked, plunged, pressed, bottled, labelled and loved.

Blend : Montepulciano (100%)
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2025
Bottle Size : 750ml

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).
