Lovely stuff here. Claret-plus, let’s call it.

About The Wine

This is a great example of modern South Australian Cab Sauv from the hands of energetic young Danish-born winemaker, Uffe Deichmann.

The fruit comes from McLaren vale, and spends a little time on skins, Uffe looking for a soft extraction of tannin and colour to produce a Cabernet with early approachability.

This is great drinking, with plenty of deep, ripe fruit flavours and a lick of toasty oak and that vibrant pop of blue fruit and violet.

It's a Cabernet Sauvignon you can get stuck into right now or cellar in the medium term.

About Poppelvej

Poppelvej (pronounced 'Pop-ell-veye') is a pint-sized winery based in McLaren Vale started by young Danish sommelier-turned-winemaker, Uffe Deichmann with the help of his brother Jens.

The name Poppelvej translates to "the street of the poplar trees", a homage to the family home property of the same name. 

 Uffe now has a small, ramshackle winery dug into in the side of a hill in McLaren Vale. He produces tiny amounts of wine with a minimal intervention philosophy.

Low amounts of sulphur (but always some) are used, the ferments are all wild. Massive black concrete eggs and an array of oak vessels in varying sizes are used as fermenters. It's a small but love-filled operation he is running.

"Plush, soft, fleshy, darker fruited red. Choc-berry, mint, raspberry, a bit of green herb, mostly this wave of brooding suppleness and generous deliciousness. Lovely stuff here. Claret-plus, let’s call it." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Good

    This is good, though I rate the Sol Sort higher, but I prefer more savoury wine. I'd buy this again. Nothing funky here.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
