Description

The Corymbia Red Blend is a wine that reflects its origins perfectly and offers so much.

With a combination of natural and carbonic fermentation, there is a lovely interplay between the dark and dense tones – blackberry, coffee, olive, earth, leather – and the extremely bright ones – mulberry, cranberry, blueberry, and aniseed. With maturation taking place in the same vat used for the fermentation, the aromas and flavours having a feel of slow evolution, unlocked by letting the wine breathe for a while before drinking.

Whether you drink it now or in a few years, you're definitely in for a treat.

"Plenty of exotic spice, liquorice, walnut, new leather, cherry, blueberry, seaweed. Medium-bodied, a lovely grainy grip and chew to tannin, cherry, boysenberry and a pippy freshness to acidity, suffused with a ferrous and ‘mineral’ feel, umami and nutty, with a bright and flavoursome finish of excellent length. Texture. Charisma. Such a good wine. All the slate and good things that the Swan Valley can deliver. Superb."

This vintage marks the 10th release of our Swan Valley red which is a huge milestone for Rob & Genevieve. 2023 was a beautiful, mild vintage which allowed us to produce exactly what we want from a Swan Valley red wine.

A field blend of 55% Tempranillo and 45% Malbec; the certified organic grapes were hand harvested on the same day. The fruit was then individually berry sorted and combined prior to carbonic maceration and natural co-fermentation in a single French oak vat. Maturation followed in the same seasoned French oak vat for 10 months.

An aromatic pop of cherry, blueberry and Chinese five spice jumps from the glass. Medium bodied with pomegranate, cocoa and squid ink umami which fill the palate, whilst soft gravelly tannins drive home a crunchy, vibrant, juicy, fleshy, turgid, lip smacking and moreish finish!

    Gorgeous Red

    This is a delicious wine - very dark, smooth and just a clever combination I think. Yummy

    Elegant top-notch blend

    Temp is not my thing but marrying it with Malbec’s rusty sinewy tannin tames the heady cola notes of the former (with no sign of the dreaded sarsaparilla). Floral, dark fruited and with savoury hints. The tempered rich palate is the hero for mine. Densely packed yes, but with powdery fine tannin. Elegant for Swan Valley. Tasted best out of a Riedel tulip shaped ‘Hermitage’ glass.

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.
