The Combes Dem Roses is a refreshing but sinewy Rose from the Yarra Valley, with this release all the fruit being Cabernet Sauvignon from the St Andrews in the cooler reaches of the Upper Yarra

It gets a little work in the winery, some savoury notes poke their head out, but the refreshing cassis and raspberry fruit notes shine through and the finish is cool, crisp and clean as a whistle.

Loving Rose that's more than just a tutti-fruity adult cordial? This should make you think a little as you drink a lot.

An ode to sunny days and long lunches, Dem Roses, now in its sixth iteration, continues leaving a big tick in the crowd-pleasing box. Our St Andrews Cabernet Sauvignon was picked just ripe, whole-bunch pressed, barrel fermented and lightly sulphured before malolactic fermentation – balancing charming fruit tones with cut and focus. There’s blackcurrant, raspberry and dried lavender before a pillowy mouthful of sappy red fruits, gum drops and refreshing acidity.

93 Points - "Cabernet in a rose from Yarra Valley.</P.

Frisky, crisp rose with zesty, amaro tang and light blueberry fruitiness. Can see the cassis, faintly, the green herbs, faintly, a lot of fine, drying tannins too yet there’s an inherent juiciness as well. It’s a vibrant, lovely time, lots of character, lots of liveliness, generally just delicious, dry, bright and wicked." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Clean as a whistle indeed!

    Love it!

    Complex but clean with just the right amount of residual sweetness - a hint of strawberry!

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.
