About The Wine

There's an exciting new development for this great site, talented and accomplished winemaker Peter Dredge now bringing the wines from these vines back into the public space.

Dredge has a deft touch with Pinot Noir, combining elements of reductive funk and earth with dazzlingly bright and pure fruit character. This is a smashing Pinot Noir. One to keep a close eye on as Dredge continues to get to know the site.

The 2016 took out the Trophy for Best Pinot Noir at the 2017 Sydney Royal Wine Show, one of the country's most prestigious, and received 94 points from Campbell Mattinson.

Highly recommended for fans of premium Tasmanian Pinot Noir.

THE GEOFFREY CRUNDALL PERPETUAL TROPHY FOR BEST PINOT NOIR - 2017 Sydney Royal Wine Show 

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"There is a slight lift on the bouquet from partial barrel fermentation and long lees contact. This is a fitting complement to the power of the primary fruit flavours of strawberry and fresh berry compote. There is a softness to this Pinot Noir, the silky or satin like tannin-structure is first rate, with just enough back-palate weight from stalk use and light French oak, to hold its length." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Straight into excellent territory here. This is why we’re so lucky in Australia: we get this level of pinot noir for $55, which isn’t cheap in general terms but in a world pinot noir context is a steal. So complex, so satiny, so well framed, so persistent. Woodsmoke, sulphur, tangy red/black cherry, super-fresh strawberries and fistfuls of dry spice. Sinewy and satiny simultaneously. It will develop beautifully but personally I wouldn’t be able to resist right now." - Campbell Matinson (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).
