Description

The warm climate in Swan Valley sees different varieties excel compared to those that have been notably successful down South in Margaret River.

Here, Tempranillo, Touriga and Grenache, from Geograph, Perth Hills and Swan Valley combine forces. Those varieties that do well in warmer climates such like Spain, are thriving in these warmer parts of WA.

Garth and Kristen believe that if a variety looks great on it's own, let it shine. If it looks better with a little help from some friends, then blend it up.

They've nailed the balance here. The 2018 vintage of this cuvee made Mike Bennie dub Garth Cliff, "a quiet revolutionary in the Swan Valley."

TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK. WHEN AN INDIVIDUAL VARIETY OR VINEYARD WORKS BY ITSELF LET'S CELEBRATE IT. WHEN WE NEED TO BLEND TO GET THE BEST RESULT THEN LET'S DO THAT INSTEAD.

FRUIT WAS SOURCED ACROSS DONNYBROOK, SWAN VALLEY AND AS FAR SOUTH AS FRANKLAND RIVER. AN ARRAY OF WINEMAKING TECHNIQUES DEPENDING ON THE FRUIT. THERE WAS WHOLE BUNCH, CARBONIC MACERATION, NATURAL YEAST AND INOCULATED. ALL COMPONENTS AGED IN OLD BARRIQUES FOR 14 MONTHS.

PLUM, ROSE PETAL, SAGE, FENNEL. MEDIUM BODIED. JUICY AND SQUISHY UP FRONT A LICK OF OAK AND SAVOURY TANNINS TO FINISH.

95 Points - "Fruit from across WA. Some whole bunches, some carbonic maceration, wild ferments, matured in seasoned French barriques for 14 months. Dense, layered and delicious - this packs pure red fruits in with exotic market spice. The salty and refreshing acidity laces it all together. The tannins are pervasive, but that's OK given the mix of varieties. Long, modern and exciting - another win for Vino Volta." - Erin Larkin (Halliday Wine Companion)

    Skilful blend, delicious red

    Lives up to the ‘staff pick’ rap. Strikingly perfumed nose, Touriga to the fore (almost cherry ripe) with the other two varieties lending depth, darker notes. All three varieties merge seamlessly on the palate. Lots of drive, dark ripe fruits, saline notes and polished tannins check the hedonistic flavours. I’m not a fan of Tempranillo but it’s kept in line here. My first Vino Volta wine - impressive.

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.
