Description

Cabernet Franc in its lightest and prettiest expression here. Gary Mills really gets the zeitgeist of what people are looking for in contemporary wine.

With half of the Cabernet Franc grapes undergoing a whole-bunch carbonic fermentation, the bright and juicy side of this varietal comes front and centre in this wine. Tart red fruits, minerality and those great herbal characters that make Franc such a seductive and unique offering as a sole varietal vino, drive this wine right into the pleasure zone.

With its light frame, this is a perfect fridge/park/BBQ red. Give it a chill and put in on high rotation for all occasions, as a wine well within the everyday sort of price range.

Grown in Dixon’s Creek, Yarra Valley, the Apricity Cabernet Franc saw 50% whole bunch carbonic maceration for 12 days, fermented with indigenous yeasts and left on lees in old French oak for 6 months. Bottled unfiltered and unfined with minimal added sulphites.

Region: Yarra Valley, Vic
Blend: Cabernet Franc (100%)
ABV: 10.10%
Closure: 750ml

Production:

93 Points - "Racy, crisp, juicy and bright. Cherry juice, cranberry, pomegranate juice. Mint, fennel, minerals. Sheesh. This is a summery red wine destined for chills and fast drinking." - Mike Bennnie (The Wine Front)

    Too green

    Jamsheed is usually good, but this was disappointing. Tastes like fruit picked too early, lacking in ripe fruit flavours.

Jamsheed

Gary Mills' Jamsheed wines are amongst the most exciting in the country: thrilling, authentic wines packed with personality.

With a specific focus on the regional differences in Victorian Syrah for his Jamsheed range, Gary has always been ahead of the curve in creating minimal intervention wines that naturally convey the characteristics of their respective vineyards.

On top of his much sought-after Syrahs, Gary produces excellent textural white wines from varieties including Riesling and Roussanne, and is never afraid to innovate with his fun and quirky 'Harem' label.

Jamie Goode called him “the new face of Australian wine”. Wild, electric and always delicious, Jamsheed is one of the Victoria’s most compelling producers.

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.
