About The Wine

Some very sharp buying here from the experienced hands of Martin Siebert.

This is one of those hidden gem wines that seems to have flown under the radar somewhat. It ticks so many boxes - Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from the impeccable 2017 vintage that comes in at under $30 a bottle - wins all round.

James Halliday was seemingly enamoured with the value on offer here. He noted that, "the palate gaining length and purpose each time I came back to it" in his 95 point review.

This is fruit from two very different sites in the Yarra. Siebert says his time in Burgundy taught him the importance of selecting the right site to make great wine - he seems to have chosen very, very well.

About First Foot Forward

Martin Siebert's sensational value range of wines burst onto the Yarra Valley wine scene with his excellent 2015 vintage release.

Made in classic Yarra Valley styles, her delivers excellent drinking with interest at a very modest price-point.

A label to watch for the serious Yarra bargain hunter.

Additional Info

From The Producer

2017 will be heralded as one of the classic years in the Yarra Valley for Pinot Noir, with the long and mild growing season giving rise to wines of great poise.

This wine was composed from two very different vineyards with the aim of making a wine that covers the Yarra Valley Pinot spectrum. The cool "The Patch Vineyard" in the Yarra Valley's south brings lifted, bright red fruit and volume whilst the "Coldstream Vineyard"in the warmer Yarra Valley floor provides the savouriness, spice, structure and length.

The fruit was fermented as four small lots with wild yeasts and 20% whole bunches before maturation in French oak hogsheads (12% new). The result is a Pinot Noir of elegance and complexity.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 13.50%

Drink Until : 2027
Bottle Size : 750ml

Halliday Wine Companion

"Takes a little time to wind up and get into gear, but having done so offers a very complex bouquet of plums and baker's spices, the palate gaining length and purpose each time I came back to it, although the flavour spectrum didn't crumble." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
