Description

Another stunning wine from one of Victoria's most energised young winemakers, Owen Latta.

For this wine, Owen extends beyond the family vineyard in Ballarat to source of some of the country's classiest Nebbiolo from the famed Malakoff vineyard in the Landsbrough region of the Pyrenees. In Owen's hands, this fruit sings.

It's made with no additions save a little SO2 at bottling, a natural rugged vibe mainlined through the mouthpiece of the Nebbiolo grape, with all its pretty aromatics shining through.

Australian terroir and next-gen lo-fi winemaking working in perfect partnership. Nebbiolo lovers, your next dinner party is sorted!

Cameron & Robert John have been pioneering Nebbiolo at the Malakoff Vineyard for over 15 years, the vineyard is situated in the Landsbrough Valley Pyrenees Victoria. Another ripper vintage for the Nebbiolo off this site.

94 Points - "Scents of game meat, sour cherry, rosemary, undergrowth and turned earth. Go you good thing. Savoury, and so the palate follows, dry, a little dusty in crushed rock tannin, more game meat and sour cherry, rose hip tea, some prune, bloody things. I love it. Tannin is fine but firm, sweeps through the light juiciness of the palate, the length unreal with persistence of gamey things and pomegranate juice. Caveat of earth and bloody things maybe a quibble for some, no issue in terms of quality for me, a delightful thing to drink with its swashbuckling slash of fruit and savouriness." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Like a top Italian

    This Nebbiolo is delicious, complex and has a nice alluring light pale ruby hue

    30min decant prior to drinking.

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.
