Description

The time for Rose is approching fast, though this might not last until spring!

It's an insanely delicious delivery of a pink wine from Matt & Danielle at Forlorn Hope. The grapes make up this beauty consists of mostly Zinfandel, Grenache, and Tempranillo, with a few other bits and pieces from the Rorick Heritage vineyard thrown in for a little seasoning.

It's a hyper-coloured electric Rose that cracks through the mouth at break-neck speed.

Dry, crckling with energy and imbued with subtle complexity that will make you want to look at it again and again. Want to think while you drink pink? Get your laughing gear around this!

Composed primarily of Zinfandel, Grenache noir, and Tempranillo, the wine shows all of the aromatic complexity and textural presence that are the hallmarks of wines grown on the limestone of our estate. It presents a wonderful dynamic tension between an entry that displays a hint of roundness and the bright, electric acidity that makes up this wine's backbone.

93 Points - "Zinfandel, grenache and barbera in a menage a trois from sexy Matt Rorick and co on his sexy heritage vineyard.Spot on whiffs of cranberry and strawberry, a light creamy sniff of vanilla, a sprinkle of green herbs and blow me down a touch of cherry cola. Juicy in the palate, good intensity and heaps of freshness, crisp edges, cool acidity, bright and clean finish with the volume turned to medium on the dial. Lovely drinking." - Mike Bennie (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.
