About the Wine

The Cape to Cape range are West Cape Howe's approachable and affordable wines ready for drinking now, or in the near future.

This Shiraz encompasses all the wonderful things about the variety, but in a very approachable form - savoury spice, a little bit peppery, and just bursting with dark fruit flavours.

As per usual from West Cape Howe, it's hard to find a better Shiraz for the price - keep it classy without breaking the bank with this one.

About West Cape Howe

Since its inception in 1997 West Cape Howe has been producing some of Western Australia's most undervalued wines.

It is owned by four local families but the figurehead and senior winemaker is WA industry legend Gavin Berry.

Their home and winery can be found at the Langton Vineyard in Mt Barker, in the Great Southern region. Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc are the stars of their range.

Additional Info

From the Producer

We source our Cape to Cape Shiraz from a number of vineyards in the South West, with the parcels of fruit fermented separately with frequent pumping over to maximise the colour and flavour extracted from the skins. After pressing out, the Shiraz goes to barrel for maturation for at least 12 months before the blend is put together. We are producing an approachable, well flavoured wine and there is minimal filtration ahead of bottling.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
ABV : 14.5%
Closure : Screw Cap

Halliday Wine Companion

"A small portion finishes its ferment in new oak barriques; matured in new and used French oak. You have to wonder how any new-oak expenditure could be justified by the giveaway price. Unbeatable now or for later consumption, with its spicy black fruits and precise tannin control." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
