About the Wine

Yarra Valley Pinot is always a beautiful thing. With a little bottle age its perfumed red cherry fruit and delicate tones evolve further, adding touches of earth and fine spices.

This small cellar release from the exceptional 2015 vintage, is showing all those extra layers.

It’s a great value expression crafted from cool upper Yarra Valley fruit, by the ever-talented Kate Goodman.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The high elevation and red volcanic soils of the Willowlake Vineyard in the Yarra Valley.

The fruit is hand harvested and distributed into large open fermenters. I keep about 30% of the fruit in whole bunches and de-stem the rest. A seven day cold soak preceded fermentation. After 18 days on skins I pressed the wine to French oak for maturation.

Perfumed with red fruit, flowers and forest undergrowth, the palate has great length and structure form the careful use of stalks, finishing with a silky texture and fine tannins

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 13%
Closure : Screw Cap

Halliday Wine Companion

Ship-shape pinot noir. Light and shade, depth and length. It tastes of anise and red cherry, plum pie and spice, a light kiss of sweet oak making a positive contribution. You take a sip and immediately think 'yep, that's good'. - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
