Description

The Mann name is synonymous with Cabernet from the West.

Rob wanted this wine to be an expression of Margaret River: the soils, the ocean surrounds, the long Summer days. They have nailed it in this much-anticipated release.

The fruit comes from their organically-managed Calgardup vineyard which sits just 2km from Redgate Beach in Margaret River. It's made with painstaking attention to detail: hand-sorting of individual berries, fermentation in oak and in the end, just four barrels produced.

It'a a distinctly savoury, umami style of Cabernet that will mature beautifully for many years to come.

The third release from our dry-grown, organically farmed Calgardup Vineyard. Located just 2 km inland from the famous Redgate Beach in Margaret River. The fruit was harvested by hand in late March, a little earlier than the typical mid-April harvest dates we're used to. The fruit was berry-sorted prior to natural, whole-berry fermentation in a single French oak vat. Maturation followed in very old demi-muids and barriques for 14 months.

We love wines with spine and structure that comes from the grape and not from an oak tree grown on the other side of the world. No fancy winemaking or oak influence, just a relentless pursuit of perfection in the vineyard. This wine tastes of the grape, the dirt and the season without pretention, which is exactly what we want. Pomegranate, wild blackberries, violets and salted licorice characters are complemented by a palate of great energy and drive. It's all framed by the vineyard's typical graphite-like structure. Very satisfying.

95 Points - "Distinctly saline smelling wine. I'm thinking iodine and seaweed and Dutch liquorice, along with blackberry and boysenberry, with some cumin and green cardamom spice. Medium-bodied, dense and tightly packed gravelly tannin, slight tamarind quality lends some tang, dried black olive, maritime feel a plenty, avast ye matey! A gummy chew to the long finish, and more towards redcurrant flavour in the aftertaste. Tension and structure. Quite different, but so very good." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

95 Points - "Fruit from the Calgardup vineyard, 100% cabernet sauvignon. This wine has been tasted blind a number of times recently, and it is fascinating each time. The aromas are finely layered with cassis, exotic spice, salt bush, dried bay leaf ... there's also a faint backdrop of bacon fat, reminiscent of the Rhône. The tannins on the palate are a standout; super-fine and laid out like a web over the fruit. Very classy. This 2020 has more obvious fruit and structure than the 2019, but we expect that from the vintage. Drink this while you wait for the '19." - Erin Larkin (Halliday Wine Companio)

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.
