About The Wine

The Pinot Gris on Skins project is Kate McIntyre MW's pet project at family winery, Moorooduc in Mornington Peninsula.

The region as a whole has championed the Pinot Gris variety as something more than just a simple, easy drinking white. The McIntyre's are the latest to get behind this regional hero.

This spent two weeks on skins before being pressed to barrel where it underwent MLF and hung out for 10 weeks on lees. It's made like Pinot Noir as opposed to traditional Gris/Grigio.

The result is a wine more red than white. It's fuller bodied than most Rosé wine, with serious tannin and weight.

If you want to see the more interesting side of Pinot Gris, this is it.

Halliday Wine Companion

"It looks like a deeply coloured rose, but in truth it's a wine difficult to pigeonhole. Pinot gris made more like pinot noir, with two weeks on skins, pressed to barrel with mlf and time on lees part of the process. Lifted aromas have musky and watermelon qualities with a savoury sort of character almost reminiscent of Chinato. There's a silky, glycerous feel on the palate with a lightly tannic astringency which is quite red-wine-like. An interesting diversion." - Steven Creber (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 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 hello@differentdrop.com 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.
