This Cabernet Sauvignon from Joshua Cooper comes from Dash Farm, just outside of the Macedon Ranges, and is the last of his Cabernet Sauvignon sites to be harvested.

This late-ripening site means beautifully concentrated fruit, and it absolutely shines in this cuvee. Dark berries, fine and silty tannin, wrapped in a silk robe of spices, chocolate and a light herbaceousness.

It's powerful yet refined and could stand for a while in the cellar but it's an absolutely stunning wine right now - so we challenge you to try to hold off.

"You can see that the folding in of everything will be nigh, and the wine will mellow into its savoury and dark fruited elements well."
- 93+ pts, Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Deep, inky purple with intense violet, seaweed and cassis, and graphite, sweet herb and spice attest to the cool nature of the site.

Only medium-weight though remarkably intense, it presents as the most “Claret” style of the three Cabernet Sauvignon cuvées, full of small dark berry fruit with fine gravelly tannins.

93+ points - "It’s a wine not quite in its groove but the DNA of fine wine is in here. Concentrated mulberry, black olive, black plum, hazelnut, piquant dill and white pepper meshed together in the bouquet and palate. There’s good depth of flavour and requisite, finer grain tannin profile, a sluice of blood orange acidity keeping things perky, but the feel isn’t quite as seamless as the higher grade cabernet releases of Josh Cooper. That being said, you can see that the folding in of everything will be nigh, and the wine will mellow into its savoury and dark fruited elements well." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Joshua Cooper

Joshua Cooper is the son of Nelly and Allan Cooper, the founders of the acclaimed Cobaw Ridge winery in the Macedon Ranges.

Born and raised on the top-tier cool climate wines of his family, Josh's wines have a delicacy and unforced feel to them. As you might imagine, growing up in the Macedon Ranges, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are two varieties he particularly excels with, as too is his great love, which is Cabernet. He sources his fruit from a series of growers across central Victoria who farm with a like-minded philosophy of organic farming and sustainability, with plans to plant his own vineyard in Macedon in the future.

Josh makes only a small amount of each wine and they are in high demand from those who want to get in early on the next generation of Cooper. He is undoubtedly one of the country's most exciting and acclaimed young winemakers, being named James Halliday's Best New Winery for 2024 as well as the winner of Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine’s Young Winemaker of the Year 2020.

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.
