About

About The Wine

If you are as meticulous in the winery as Shaun Crinion, more often than not, you're going to produce a winner, particularly in a year as good as 2017.

There's a lot of attention to detail behind the scenes in this $29 Pinot Noir. Every berry selected by hand, some light foot-stomping, gentle plunging over its three weeks on skins just a few of the steps along the way to this wine getting made. Shaun going for soft extraction with max impact.

He hits the nail on the head. This is an excellent pinot noir from 2017.

When a high-value proposition Pinot Noir like this comes along, it usually doesn't stick around too long.

About Dappled Wines

Dappled is a producer to get on early.  Owner/winemaker Shaun Crinion has a mountain of winemaking experience from round the globe, culminating in recent years with the establishment of this, his own label.  Shaun's focus is in expressing the regionality of the Yarra Valley through simply gorgeous Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, sourced from a range of Upper and Lower Yarra vineyards.

Through his vineyard connections, brilliantly astute winemaking and a desire to keep his wines approachable to all, the value on offer in the Dappled range is second to none.  Throw in what may be the best Gewurztraminer in Australia, and some of the most beautiful packaging you're likely to see, and Dappled is the complete package.

James Halliday named Dappled as his Best New Winery in his 2018 Wine Companion and it's not hard to see why.

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

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).
