This is a very impressive Pinot Noir from one of Marlborough's most respected artisan producers.

The Weaver's Pinot Noir block is planted at 5000 vines per hectare, extremely close plantings such as this force strain on each vine producing drastically less fruit but with vastly more intensity.

It's this sort of quality over quantity approach that has seen the Weavers become synonymous with some of Marlborough's finest offerings.

The 2015 of this wine received 95 points from Gary Walsh and offer great value in the context of premium NZ Pinot Noir.

Our distinctive hillside vineyard above the Waihopai Valley was planted in 2000 with a European approach, close vine spacing and high density (approx. 5,000/ha). We manage the vineyard according to principles of biodynamics and organics.2015 was an good growing season with a great finale. We had a cool flowering with rain at the critical time for Pinot Noir fruit set. This led to low yields and a certain amount of unevenness that had to be balanced with a green harvest at veraison. Summer was very long and exceptionally dry leading to a sunny harvest commencing 24th March. We had a full team of Weavers working at Churton for 2015 with Jack managing the vineyard and Ben overseeing the winery.

Each parcel of Pinot Noir is hand-picked and kept separate in the winery. It is gently de- stemmed and tipped into fermenters. The fruit is handled very minimally until it starts fermenting. Fermentation is through indigenous yeast and once fermenting must is plunged only twice daily. At the end of ferment our wine remains on skins for up to another two weeks prior to pressing. Total time on skins is usually 28 days (a lunar month). Our 2015 Pinot Noir was aged in used French oak barrels for 18 months, racked once and then bottled in October 2016.

95 Points - "Far out. Smells a lot like Barolo. Cherry, aniseed and liquorice, spice and roses. Medium bodied, cool acidity, fine almost dusty, but ripe tannin, succulence and length. What a wine! Beautiful." - Gary Walsh (The wine Front)

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.

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.
