Expert Reviews

The light though bright colour signals a light-bodied red cherry, plum and spiced palate with good mouthfeel and length. For early consumption while it retains its freshness. Rating 90 - Drink by 2014 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Medium to deep red colour

Aroma

Attractive nose showing ripe plum fruits, with hints of blackcurrant. There is typical merlot creaminess and subtle French oak.

Palate

The plum fruit notes fill the front palate and are backed by subtle charry French oak notes. The fine grain tannins combine with a firm acid backbone to give a beautiful structure to frame the vibrant fruit. The finish is fresh and surprisingly long, leaving the flavors to linger in your mouth.

Food Matching

Enjoy while young, fresh and fruit driven, with a wide range of meals from pasta to red meats and BBQ’s

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

3drops began with a family farm and a vision- a vision to produce premium wines and extra virgin olive oil whilst maintaining the integrity of the land for generations to come. Southwest of Mount Barker in the heart of the acclaimed Great Southern wine region of Western Australia, vines and olive trees flourish side by side in the cool, pristine climate.

The 3drops vineyard comprises 15 fertile hectares planted with varieties of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz. Italian, Greek and Spanish varieties of olive trees thrive alongside the vines. The name 3drops was chosen to reflect the attributes of three precious liquids wine, olive oil and water, with both the vineyard and olive grove carefully irrigated from a large wetland on the property.

The melding of time honoured tradition, passion and sensibility with contemporary techniques and the latest technology, enables 3drops to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characters.
