About
It’s seriously good, delicious, wonderful as an expression.

About The Wine

Jennifer and John Nagorcka planted the first vines for Hochkirch back in 1990. Now almost two decades on, theirs is one of the finest examples of the benefits of biodynamic viticulture in Victoria.

This Pinot Noir is the secondary fruit selection from their high-density plantings. For what might be called an 'entry-level' wine into the Hochkirch range, the quality of wine from 2015 is remarkable. Quite intensity and deep earthy character set this wine apart from many other Victorian Pinot Noirs. Oak plays only a very minor role in the show.

Mike Bennie awarded it a glowing 94 points from 2015. It's the perfect place to start if you want to get familiar with this exemplary West Victorian producer.

The Wine Front

"Savoury perfume showing cranberry and pomegranate fruit characters, whiffs of amaro, fennel, red cherry, brambles. Palate is generous but also tight, shows lots of bark, amaro, earthiness with cherry (dried and fresh) almost behind the scenes. It’s seriously good, delicious, wonderful as an expression." - 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).
