About the Wine

The Treble Pinot Noir is a delectable blend of grapes from all 3 of Black Estate's vineyards.

It's a vivacious drop, with fine flavours and aromas that draw you in on first impression. Deliciously plummy, with dry peppery goodness and savoury earthiness we love to see in this variety.

Fans of New Zealand Pinot, gather around - this is one you're sure to love.

About Black Estate

Black Estate was founded in Waipara in 1993 when Russell Black planted 8 hectares of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In 2007, Pen Naish and her winemaker husband, Nicholas Brown, took over - and it's been expanding ever since, now with 24 hectares across three vineyards.

They use organic and biodynamic farming (certified with BioGro) to really focus on the life and environment of the vineyard, as well as the health and quality of all things within it - the soils, vines and fruits. They use a hands-off, minimalistic approach to their winemaking to really allow each of their exclusively single vineyard wines to really showcase each site, allowing the final product to express its environment in a pure form.

Winemaker Nicholas Brown gained acclaim in early 2022 taking out the Gourmet Traveller Wine New Zealand Winemaker of the Year.

Additional Info

From the Producer

We make our wines with intense enthusiasm and detail in our vineyards, and naturally in our cellar. We’re pursuing pure and clear expressions of each of our three sites. Hand picked organic and biodynamic grapes are fermented with vineyard derived yeasts and not subject to additives, fining or filtering. Only minimal sulphur is added at bottling (sometimes none). We certify our wines organic with Bio Gro (5202) and benefit from thoughtful insights using biodynamic practices.

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"Made from organic grapes grown on three vineyards. Fresh, lively pinot noir with bright plum, cherry and violet flavours that are supported by fine, peppery tannins that promote a pleasantly dry finish." - Bob Campbell (The Real Review)

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 1300 668 385 or 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.

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).
