About
Pure Chatto pinot and pure Isle Vineyard... An exquisite wine.

Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

About The Wine

This is the flagship Pinot Noir from one of Australia's finest winemakers, Jim Chatto.

The Isle Pinot Noir comes from the best patch of Jim's exquisite Huon Valley vineyard. The Isle Vineyard sits, according to Jim, "right on the edge of viticultural possibility."

This is a warmer site in one of the country's coolest wine growing regions.

A wine of incredible power and persistence, the 2017 release is an Australian Pinot Noir of rare quality.

This is a collectors item and is extremely limited.

About Chatto Wines

Jim Chatto is revered as one of the finest winemakers currently working in Australia.

His recent reinvigoration at Mount Pleasent in the Hunter Valley has received phenomenal critical acclaim, as has his personal Tasmanian project, Chatto wines.

After purchasing a plot of land that Jim describes as "right on the edge of viticultural possibility", planting began in 2007.

In only a short amount of time, this site has produced some extraordinary wines and looks set to become one of the Apple Isle most prized viticultural assets.

The Wine Front

"Lots going on but then the finish, shazam. Spice, bunches, reduction, cloves, peppers, just so much. Fruit and oak sitting pretty, some muscle, some gristle, fair amount of fruit, and then boom, spice-drenched tannin and length. The tequila herb notes in this wine are quite exquisitely beautiful. Oak for sure but it’s pinot noir putting on a show. Gorgeous. Pure Chatto pinot and pure Isle Vineyard with its inherent wildness of spice and even reduction but neat with it; tapped into place. An exquisite wine." - Campbell Mattinson (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).
