Stalks are the best thing you can drink. Savoury. It takes away the sweet fruit.

About The Wine

This is the wilder version of Pinot Noir from Yarra Valley cult favourite Timo Mayer.

The Dr. Mayer Pinot Noir is 100% whole bunch fermented, Timo using the extra stalk component to drag out addition tannin and texture. He has a particular affinity with stalkier Pinot Noir, you can hear his passion in the way he talks about it.

The 2016 is wildly aromatic, powerful and densely concentrated. Only six barrels made.

If Pinot Noir with swagger is your game, you need an appointment with the Doctor.

About Timo Mayer

German-born, enigmatic winemaker Timo Mayer is one of the great characters of the Yarra Valley. The words bombastic, charismatic and wild are as much applicable to the man as his wines.

From his close-planted Yarra Valley vineyard, evocatively named 'Bloody Hill', Timo carves out some astounding wines made with low levels of new oak and minimal additions. 

The signature of Timo's winemaking style is his penchant for whole-bunch ferment. His wines have an ethereal quality, firm tannins and impeccable structure. 

These are compelling and extremely limited wines that tell a unique story of the Yarra Valley.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"This is pretty aromatics, really. Rose petals, briar, alpine herbs, red cherry and pickled cherry. The palate is fine, satiny, then starts to get strict before finishing totally dry and with a gentle, building tug of near nebbiolo-like tannins and steely acidity. Ludicrously delicious, fine feeling wine here, savouriness to the fore, structure and bones, delicate yet with tension to the max. Superb." - 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).
