Description

Domaine Naturaliste is a Margaret River producer to keep an eye out for.

His wines are made from traditional Margaret River varieties with a focus on premium Chardonnay and Cabernet that rival the best of the region. From the top-shelf premium range to the excellent 'daily drinking' wines, everything made by the hands of Bruce is outstanding value for money!

2012 Domaine Naturaliste Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon

Bruce Dukes' winemaking starts literally from the ground up.

The man has been obsessed with growing things for over two decades and it shows in every wine he makes. His roots have been put down in Margaret River, and as such he has immense insight into what the balance of soil, aspect and clone can do to a wine in this part of the world. One of his great loves is Margaret River Cabernet - and with this wine, we can definitely see why.

He explained to us, "Rebus is a picture puzzle that when you look at it, the solution is not immediately apparent, there may be several solutions. That's why I love Margaret River Cabernet - it's constantly changing and it keeps me constantly challenged."

If you love Margaret River Cabernet, you are going to fall in love with this wine.

2022 Domaine Naturaliste Artus Chardonnay

After 20 years observing the area, Bruce Dukes decided all the Chardonnays from Domaine Naturaliste would be crafted entirely from the Gin Gin clone.

He selected a vineyard in the South of Margaret River that had Gin Gin cropped in a particular way, with little light flooding through the canopy. He wanted flavour intensity without the tannins that come with over-ripeness and he got it. The result of his search are the twin Chardonnays Artus and Purus.

Artus is the voluptuous seductress. The powerhouse Margaret River Chardonnay with a gymnast-like balance. 40% new oak, richness and zip in equal proportion.

2022 Domaine Naturaliste Purus Chardonnay

The Purus is a razor-sharp beauty of a Chardonnay.

There is no malolactic fermentation or excessive oak maturation, just pure and pristine Chardonnay fruit from the cooler southern reaches of Margaret River. Wild herbs and florals, grapefruit and citrus, pebbles and stones...

There's fantastic tension and nerve, and a biting minerality within a soothingly fine palate.

Wonderful counterpoint to the rich Artus Chardonnay, cementing Domaine Naturaliste's position among the upper echelon of Australia's Chardonnay producers.

"Intense, rich palate with delicacy as well as generosity..."
- 96 pts, Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

2018 Domaine Naturaliste Morus Cabernet Sauvignon

The Morus is the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee from Domaine Naturaliste.

The oldest and best vineyard source in Bruce Dukes' portfolio, this is grown on some of the most coveted Cabernet vines in Margaret River. Morus australis is the species name for the mulberry tree, mulberry being the key identifying characteristic of this wine, according to the winemaker.

This wine finds itself amongst the most elite of Margaret River Cabernet.

A powerful wine of commanding presence and outstanding quality built for the long haul in the cellar.

2020 Domaine Naturaliste Le Naturaliste Cabernet Franc

The Le Naturaliste is the latest addition to Bruce Dukes' Flagship range.

A straight varietal Cabernet Franc born from Dukes' finest parcel of fruit from the heart of Margaret River - this is a stunning example of the poetential for this variety when made in a reserve style.

Think of it as Cabernet Sauvignon's sleeker, more elegant cousin. It's gracefully aromatic, and shows exceptional structure for the variety. It's Australian Cabernet Franc in full stride.

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.
