Description

The SR Cabernets is a welcome addition to the Nocturne family.

It's made as a fleshier, more slurpable style of Margaret River Cabernet blend, built for drinking while you wait for the excellent Nocturne Single Vineyard Cabernet to mature.

The fruit comes from Yallingup, the Margaret River sub-region that Julian Langworthy believes makes some of the best Cabernet blends in the world.

The Cabernet component comes from their beloved Sheoak vineyard (the source of their SV Cabernet) and it's blended with small portions of Merlot and Malbec from the neighbouring vineyard farmed by the Simpsons.

It's a top-value Cabernet blend from this dynamic label. Easy drinking at a great price.

"It’s a wine of interest and impact, and mainly, I just enjoy that it’s a pretty serious Cabernet for not a lot of money."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Yallingup is our stomping ground and where the world’s greatest Cabernet and Cabernet blends are being grown! It’s deliciously warm but never hot, with the amazing dual influence of the Indian Ocean and Geographe Bay. For this year’s Cabernets, we have again used our own beloved Sheoak Cabernet and added some of our neighbour’s Merlot from the Simpson property, with which we I am lucky enough to share the amazing valley. There’s also a little splash of their Malbec, too. I’d be lying if I said it was easy, I lost hair, and the hair I had left went grey but we got there in the end… Inheritably elegant is how the ‘21 Cabernets should be described: resolved, gentle tannins with lovely, lightly framed red fruits and great length. It quietly asks you to take another sip, to eat some food to share with friends, lovers, co-workers and some dude named Frank.

93 points - "The final blend 69% cabernet sauvignon, 21% merlot and 10% malbec, and it feels light as much as a delight. Cassis, mulberries and baking spices plus licorice and a ferrous note. The palate is a tad fuller this vintage with raw silk tannins sashaying throughout. Best of all, ready to pour right now." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

94 points - "Red and black fruit, shag tobacco, dried flowers, a little mint and cocoa. It’s medium to full-bodied, but what I like about it is this earthy sort of ferrous character it has, along with juicy cherry and blackberry, acidity has a firm almost ‘minerally’ cut, and the finish is long, and pleasingly grainy and chewy. It’s a wine of interest and impact, and mainly, I just enjoy that it’s a pretty serious Cabernet for not a lot of money." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Nocturne Wines

Nocturne is the personal side label of highly decorated Margaret River winemaker Julian Langworthy.

Julian has won just about everything there is to win in Australian wine, having taken out Winemaker of the Year for the 2019 Halliday Wine Companion, the 2016 Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy at Royal Melbourne in the space of just a couple of years.

The Nocturne wines are all small production with Jules focusing on quality rather than quantity in this range.

The fruit is procured through Julian's connections with local growers developed over his lifetime in the Margaret River region. If you're looking for hidden gems of Margaret River, the Nocturne wines are it.

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.
