Description

The Moonambel Cabernet is a cellar classic from one of Victoria's most picturesque vineyards.

This is one of Victoria's most collectable cool climate Cabernets. The unique micro climate of the Dalwhinnie amphitheatre vineyard produces thick Cabernets with deep pools of fruit and formidable structure.

It's a wine that shows its best after it's allowed to unfurl in the bottle for a few years.

Richly flavoured and perfectly seasoned with the finest French oak, these wines have a great reputation - and with good reason. These are the kind of hearty, rich Cabernets that form the basis of many fine Australian cellars.

"It's easy enough to list the flavours: spearmint, boysenberry, dark chocolate and pure blackcurrant, but it's the arrangement and more so the flamboyant flourish of them that really impresses. This is Dalwhinnie in dynamic good form. Integrated tannin ripples through the back half of the wine, as do sweet woodsmoke characters, and the finish is full of running and then some."
- Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

The fruit for this wine was picked from the original contour and front gate vineyards on the Dalwhinnie estate, where fruit then fermented for 14 days in open top fermenters. Once approaching dryness the wine was pressed directly to French oak barriques for a 20 month maturation. Careful barrel selection was carried out to blend this wine before bottling.

93 points - "Blackcurrant and boysenberry, dark chocolate, dried herbs, peppermint tea and dried flower perfume. It’s medium to full-bodied, black olive and tobacco, a lovely sense of decay to the ripe small berried red and black fruits, a sure grip to grainy tannin, and while it maybe carries just a little too much warmth. the generosity of flavour and length stamps it out as a wine of presence and fine character. It’s a very good wine, kind of overtly regional, yet charismatic all the same." - Gary Walsh (The wine Front)

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.
