With a winemaking method that is reminiscent of Northern Rhone, it’s no wonder this wine presents as very much an old-world style.

Dark fruit, lots of spice, and a dense aniseed character, this mid-weight wine from Scorpo, is right in the happy zone for those who aren’t looking for fruit driven Shiraz. Wonderfully structured with savoury notes and silky persistent tannins, it’s a really elegant wine.

While the label may say Mornington, close your eyes, inhale, and get transported to Hermitage.

Made in a Côte-Rôtie /Hermitage winemaking tradition. The fruit is chilled, de-stemmed, and open vat fermented. Pre- fermentation cold soaking of the de-stemmed fruit enhances flavours and complexity. Spontaneous wild yeast fermentation usually begins 4 to 5 days after. The cap is plunged as required. Cuvaison (length of time on skins) usually takes 18-20 days. After fermentation and cuvaison, the wine is pressed and transferred to a selection of new (approx. 25%) and used (one, two and three year old) tight grained French barriques. The wine is bottled 18 months later.

94 Points - "Grilled meat, spice, truffle, blackcurrant and fresh blackberry, toasted hazelnuts. Medium-bodied, distinctly meaty and spicy, with fresh acidity, small dark berries, a pleasing chicory bitterness, graphite tannin, and all the dried herb perfume and charred meat running on a long and spicy finish. I’m not sure I’d pick it as Australian Shiraz, if I tasted it blind, aside a minor amount of gum leaf perfume. Excellent. So excellent, in fact." Gary Walsh (Wine Front)

95 Points - "This is almost black, with a shot of red/purple. It's not a wallflower. There are plenty of steadfast grainy tannins reined in by a ribbon of acidity. Smells great, tastes even better: black cherries, exotic spices plus sumac, the flavours are intense and satisfying. It opens up more and more, revealing a gloss across the full-bodied palate." Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

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.

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.
