About The Wine

There's always the chance when making Pinot from the Adelaide Hills that the fruit gets a little too ripe, the wines look a little more like a nondescript 'dry-red', as opposed to the ethereal quality that you want in Pinot Noir.

But distributor-turned-winemaker Tim Stock has produced a stunning Adelaide Hills Pinot here from 2016.

It's a dainty, light and deliciously elegant wine made with a natural ethos. No additions aside from the barest amount of sulphur just at the bottling stage.

If 'pretty' Pinot Noir is your thing, 'Vince' will charm the pants off you.

Only 49 dozen made.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Pure, pristine, unfettered Pinot Noir. Strawberry, Spring flowers, some cut with a pomegranate and white pepper. It's light bodied with smooth, glassy acidity, no oak in sight, a nymph-like Pinot Noir that dances across the tongue. Man this is a lovely thing to sip on. Classy stuff. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Around 50% whole bunch from a cool site in Piccadilly. Vince is an excellent name for a wine. Right up there with Bruce and the like. This is made by Tim Stock at Commune Of Buttons in the Adelaide Hills. Strawberry scents, pretty fruit and florals to sniff on, touch of clove, whiff of sweetened cream, sniffs of blanched almond. Supple, succulent and soft in the palate, though there’s a creep of fine, kitten’s tongue tannin and crisp, tight finish. A real stayer. You’ll need decanter or patience for some cellaring to see it’s best, but geez, is it good on presentation anyway." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 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).
