The White Wolf of Cumbria Red is a Jared Dixon's all-purpose red blend built from Merlot, Shiraz and Tannat.

The three varieties were harvested across three different seasons. The Shiraz and Merlot were picked in 2018 and 2019 and blended with the small Tanat portion from 2017. It fits right in the modern, juicy red wine category. Jam packed with sweet blue fruit and spice - it's hard to see anyone not liking this.

With the smooth and supple drinkability of medium-bodied Merlot taking centre stage, this is a creatively conceived crowd pleaser for all occasions.

An inspired, NV blend of Merlot, Shiraz & Tannat. Handpicked early at 8 baumé, destemmed and wild fermented in stainless steel; the Shiraz & Merlot components from regional NSW in 2018 & 2019 make for a vibrant core displaying purity & an elegant perfume.

The remainder of the wine is made up of approximately 18% Tannat from New England in 2017, which was fermented on skins for 10 months and remained on lees in neutral oak for 18 months, unsulphured, adding depth & structure to the final assemblage. Blended towards the end of 2020, the resulting wine was bottled unfined & unfiltered.

Region: New England, NSW
Blend: Merlot, Shiraz, Tanat

91 Points - "This is made of 2017, 2018 and 2019 vintage fruit and is a JAN21 release. Made to be a fresh yet complex red. And it does the trick. It's definitively crunchy in texture, all crackle of sour-sweet acidity, pomegranate juice to the max, light herbal notes, some light, savoury-nuttiness in the mix. Rockets across the palate, lively and bright, a thirst quenching red for skolling in the sun dragged straight from an Esky. What ho!" - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Daring dance in a glass

    The merlot seems to weave in and out of this mix of grapes - providing a fascinating mix of fruit, herbs and mid palate enjoyment. If love to return to this wine, first glass in, as opposed to third bottle into a long dinner.

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.
