About The Wine

If you want to know how to make cracking Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for a great price, the one guy you probably want to learn from is Hoddles Creek Estate's Franco D'Anna. So that's just what Chris Bendle did.

He's been making wine at Hoddles since 2010 and something is definitely rubbing off on him. There are strands of DNA that the two brands share; namely freshness, approachability and excellent value.

The 2017 Pinot Noir is a little more tightly wound than previous releases but it has drinkability in spades. Gary Walsh labelled the 201 "Fine value." in his recent review.

This is a guilt-free, quality Pinot that you can rip the top off any night of the week.

The Wine Front

"Pretty wine, light in body but high in fragrance. Strawberries, spice, roses, a kiss of vanilla, and something just a little bit earthy underneath. Juicy strawberry the main flavour, gentle fine-grained tannin keeps it trim, and acidity is clean and nicely integrated. Good finish, again the gentle tannin plays out along with a sappy character. It’s a young wine at present, and I’d say better again given a year or two in bottle. Fine value." - Gary Walsh (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?

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).
