About

About The Wine

For years, Jonothan Mogg and Belinda Low have bought grapes from local grower Alastair Taylor, and in 2015 they finally managed to get their hands on a small amount of his coveted Pinot Meunier fruit.

The wine they have made is a fine, elegant example of the variety with a distinctively European feel. It has freshness and appeal as a young wine and amazing longevity in the cellar.

If you are looking to get acquainted with this often overlooked grape, this is the perfect place to start.

Halliday Wine Companion

"There is ample depth (and clarity) to the colour, and exceptional energy to the palate with its plum and black cherry fruit. Savoury complexity builds through to the finish and lingering aftertaste." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

DDS review

Fresh berries, smoke, autumn leaves and a mysterious herbal note running through the perfume. Smells unreal. The palate is fresh and juicy, showing cherries and spice on a bed of fine powdery tannins. Gorgeous drinking now but with plenty of gas in the tank if you want to cellar it for a while. - Different Drop Wine Team

FaQs

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

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?

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).
