Description

Achaval Ferrer are one of the benchmark producers of Mendoza.

These wines have garnered plenty of international attention for their power and elegance. With high praise from the likes of Robert Parker, Forbes Magazine and Wine Enthusiast, they enjoy one of the best reputations in the prestigious Mendoza region.

This is their estate Malbec, the wine which perhaps best exemplifies typifies their style.

It shows the signature depth and power of Malbec from the region with oak used judiciously to compliment, rather than dominate the fruit.

This is a top example of Mendoza Malbec, perfect for drinking now or for the cellar.

93 Points - "Plenty of fruit on the nose with a nice reductive and peppery edge. Dark cherries and strawberries with spiced plums and violets. Firm, flavorful and medium- to full-bodied on the palate with tight, fine-grained tannins. Fresh, fruit-oriented finish. Better in 2024." - Zekun Shuai (James Suckling)

93 Points - "The 2021 Malbec Mendoza is 50% from the Uco Valley, 40% from Luján de Cuyo and 10% from Medrano, all in Mendoza, and spent nine months in used French oak. Purple in color. The vivid nose delivers fresh plum, sour cherry, violets and a bouquet of herbs accompanied by hints of balsam. Slightly indulgent in the mouth, it’s juicy in spite of its volume and grippy tannins. A well-rounded wine with hints of lavender perfume on the long, bold finish.” - (Vinous)

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.
