Description

Old guard icons are not always known for tinkering with a winning formula. But the considered experimentation in the Marli Russell reds brings these Rhone-inspired beauties well beyond mere project wines.

This is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault, and it shares the assured exquisite flavour and subtlety notable of all Mount Mary’s reds.

From pretty rose florals to silky dark cherry, it’s a distinctive expression of Grenache showing both finesse and flair. It’s both enchanting and immediately accessible

"A Rhone blend with Mount Mary sensibility... This is fresh, spicy, red fruits with an exotic musky and rosy perfume. Medium-bodied, rosehip, redcurrant and raspberry, a fine crunch to it, juicy but controlled, with a lick of kitten’s tongue tannin, almond, biscuit spice, dried herbs and orange zest, and a clean finish of excellent length. It’s a Pinot Noir drinkers Rhone blend, for sure, and it’s such a delightful wine. I’d say it’s likely the best release to date."

"A light, bright crimson. Perfumed with ripe raspberries, kirsch, incense and garrigue. Red fruited and gently fleshy on the palate before closing with silky tannins on the smooth, satisfying finish." - Philip Rich (Halliday Wine Companion)

The 2022 RP2 is quite simply a delicious wine. One of the hallmarks of all 2022 red wines is impressive colour intensity, and this wine is no exception. It has a brilliant deep red, purple hue. The RP2 blend includes all four red varieties from our Marli Russell plantings being Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre and Cinsault. The progression of these Rhone varieties, grown in our vineyard for 15 years now, has been extremely pleasing.

55% Grenache, 30% Shiraz, 10% Cinsault, 5% Mourvedre

The nose is dominated by beautiful, pure ripe Grenache/Shiraz aromas of ripe raspberries, stewed strawberry and plum, with nuances of liquorice and spice. The palate is perfectly weighted with luscious, dense fruit and a clean cut of tannin lending a savouriness to the ripe, bright fruit profile. This wine has impressive length and persistence on the palate.

Mount Mary

One of the great Australian domains is in the form of its life with young Sam Middleton as head winemaker.

The list of accolades for the great Mount Mary is long and rich. They are one of the country's most celebrated and collectable family-owned estates. From the impossible balance of the iconic Quintet and Triolet blends to the scintillating Chardonnays and the rare and almost mythical Pinot Noir, there is not a hair out of place in the Mount Mary lineup.

With Sam Middleton in charge of the winemaking process, Mount Mary is entering its second golden age as one of the jewels of the Yarra Valley.

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.
