About the Wine

Yet another ridiculously good value release under Willow Bridge's Dragonfly label. If you're in the market for an easy-drinking, approachable Cab Merlot, then you'll love this.

All that lovely dark fruited Cabernet Merlot flavour but with a softness and ease to it. It's a comforting wine - like a warm cuddle from a loved one, or sitting in a comfy chair while a soft cat jumps into your lap and purrs.

How Willow Bridge craft such great wines at this sort of price, we don't quite know. Hats off to them.

About Willow Bridge

Situated high in the Darling Ranges, on Marri soils, lies the picturesque Willow Bridge vineyards.

Vignerons Jeff & Vicki Dewar purchased the 420 acre property in 1996, fuelled by the passion to establish their own business & brand. They planted 150 acres of vines in '97 and '98, in a region that was relatively unknown at the time.

The winemaking team, now led by senior winemaker Kim Horton, are passionate about crafting excellent wines in unison with their environment. Kim firmly believes that great wines are made in the vineyard; the quality reflective of the soil & climate they hail from.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Vibrant Mulberry and blackberry fruits, intense flavour with silky long tannin balanced by fine french oak.

Essentially the Dragonfly Cabernet Merlot is an expression of the deep dark fruit characters we attain from the Ferguson region, rich and smooth with lashings of chocolate. Winemaking technique enhances the aromatic and flavour profile of the varieties whilst maintaining a long fine tannin structure.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"This is a ripping little wine. At first glance it's a juicy, buoyant and uncomplicated shiraz. But it routinely shows itself to be more sophisticated and complex than its price would suggest. Look for salted licorice, blood, salted plums, redskins, raspberry and pomegranate, alongside the expected blackberry and mulberry. Search for the toasty oak and the star anise, the dry toasted spices through the finish (there's cardamom and cinnamon and a sprinkling of ras el hanout). It's a super-handy little wine, and a great example of how easily Geographe can handle shiraz." - Erin Larkin (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 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).
