About The Wine

In this wine you see the powers of three Pinots combine.

It's Noir, Meunier and a splash of Gris getting along famously. The whole bunches are all fermented together. A ménage à trois of Pinots in a carbonic, juicy soup.

The Pinot Noir brings the body - all ripe cherries and sweet strawberry, the Meunier lends some zippy acidity through the mouth, and the dash of Gris gives you all the sweet musky top notes and some citrus notes to boot.

It's the very model of a modern Australian red - built for good times, BBQs and beach cricket.

About Between Five Bells

More than just a wine label, Between Five Bells is an amalgamation of philosophy, art and skill.

Conceived (as so many genius ideas are) after one (or several) too many wines with his friend Josh, David Fesq approached Ray Nadeson, the impossibly talented owner/winemaker of Lethbridge wines, with the concept of creating a range that put "drinkability first, and varieties, marketing and expectations second."

And so, B5B was born. These wines throw out the rulebook. The blends are unconventional, the winemaking is experimental, the juice at the end is simply delicious.

Additional Info

From The Producer

A delicious blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier & a touch of Pinot Gris.

Whole bunches are carefully placed in a 5000lt cuve. A small amount of fermenting Pinot Noir juice is introduced into the bottom of the tank. This allows the intact berries to be enveloped by CO2, allowing a true carbonic maceration. The sheer weight of the fruit above crushes the berries at the bottom allowing more sweet juice to join the ferment. This technique encourages the development of a beautiful silky mouth feel while maintaining vibrant fruity aromas.

ABV : 12.5%
Closure : Screw Cap
Bottle Size : 750ml

The Wine Front

"This is really good. What could be just a ‘great drinking red’, elevates on a web of tight and tense tannins, rises again on amaro-licked acidity, feels part cherry juice, part pomegranate juice and part blood orange juice, but all compact and sinewy and long. It’s really good drinking, sure, but also delivers a good dose of sophistication for those hoping to spend a little time with it." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
