Description

The first release of Lime Kiln was made to coincide with the 30th anniversary of Mount Majura's first vintage - they are one of the Canberra wine regions most important pioneers.

It is a smashable blend of the Portuguese variety Touriga, Graciano and Shiraz, in (almost) equal amounts, and a little tiny splash of Parraleta just for fun. This blend can result in some hefty wines, but here it is a dangerously drinkable, spicy red blend that is demure rather than demanding. A bit of old French oak involved but it is all about the cherry, raspberry fruit profile, and some light peppery spice.

It's soft and appealing, and a great way to get acquainted with Mount Majura's reds.

Lime Kiln Red is a medium-bodied blend that's all about deliciousness and drinkability. With such a collection of interesting varieties in the vineyard and winery, new blending trials are irresistible fun.

The Lime Kiln Red is 37% touriga, 32% graciano, 30% shiraz and 1% parraleta. And the name? A 1912 map of the district showed a 'Lime Kiln Block' near the current vineyard site, presumably burning limestone similar to that in the vineyard to make builder's lime.

88 Points - "Vibrant red-cherry hue. Red fruits, white pepper and dry leafy aromatics. A light and fresh style. Redcurrants and pepper notes are hung from a taut line of acidity that slightly dominates the palate whilst a grip of tannin pinches the finish a little." - Stuart Knox (The Real Review)

    Absolutely delicious! Soft tannins, dark fruit and smashable :-)

    We ordered this wine based on a tasting we had at a restaurant. At that time we had this wine paired with some meat. For a Shiraz this one is a little lighter and has soft tannins. Very fruity (dark fruits). For someone who normally doesn't like Shiraz - this one is sensational.

    I recommend this wine paired with a nice steak. Crowd-pleaser for sure

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.
