About The Wine

The Nick Spencer Single Vineyard range celebrates the best of the best fruit that Nick Spencer sources from NSW High Country.

This Cabernet comes from a vineyard planted by Penfolds almost 20 years ago in Gundagai. It's a warm, dry site, planted on rich ironstone soils, that historically would have produced a rich, heady style of red. Nick picks the fruit early to maintain the character of the vineyard. It's produced a surprisingly elegant expression of Cabernet that should cellar beautifully for many years to come.

This is a brilliantly balanced wine - smooth, svelt and polished to perfection.

About Nick Spencer Wines

Nick Spencer made a name for himself after a hugely successful decade-long stint as chief winemaker at Eden Road, before deciding in 2017 to take the plunge and start his very own label.

The Nick Spencer wines are, like Eden Road's, focused on the regions of the NSW High Country, in particular, Tumbarumba and Gundagai.

With Nick's access to some of the region's best fruit, his wines are all about balance, style and drinkability, with Nick's stamp of quality on top. Tiny volumes made and an exciting producer to watch out for!

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on the Tumblong vineyard in Gundagai. The vineyard was planted in the early 90’s by Penfolds, who recognised the deep, iron stone rich soils and dry, warm climate would be the perfect location for Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Historically considered a big, tannic red that required years of cellaring, the popularity of Cabernet Sauvignon has ebbed somewhat with the younger crowd in recent years – but the variety is making a comeback and this wine is for everyone.

The Wine Front

"It’s a charming red. Fresh, almost crisp, feathery-light and yet satisfying. Tannic in a subtle way. It tastes of boysenberry more than blackcurrant, has a floral-herb-garden aspect, feels and tastes as though it’s been painted in watercolours, and is all-round enticing both to smell and to taste. There are sweet, roasted nut characters, almost like peanut brittle, though they’re whispered. Tannin. Tannin here is interesting. It’s about as lacy as they come; it’s in complete synch with the wine as a whole. Back to that word charming. That’s what this wine is. It is its own interpretation of cabernet." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
