About The Wine

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.

About Mount Majura

Mount Majura is one of the most exciting producers in Canberra.

They are quickly gaining fame for producing top class Rieslings and alternative varieties with sensational value across the range.

Winemaker Frank van der Loo's obsessive focus on the terroir and his attempts to find the perfect variety for each patch of dirt under Mount Majura's ownership are resulting in unique and spectacular wines for the region.

Additional Info

From The Producer

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.

Blend : Touriga (37%), Graciano (32%), Shiraz (30%), Parraleta (1%)
ABV : 13%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2029
Bottle Size : 750ml

The Real Review

"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

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
