About The Wine

This is a super delicious take on Pinot Gris from Mount Gambier.

The fruit began fermenting as whole berries for five days, then sat on skins for eight days picking up all the vibrant colour from the pinkish skins of the Pinot Gris grape. A small amount of Pinot Noir Rosé was also blended in for a lift of perfume and freshness.

With the whole berry ferment, skin contact and barrel time, this is basically Pinot Gris made like a red wine.

If you're looking for more experimental takes on this mercurial variety, this version from Andrew Burchell is a great place to start.

About Good Intentions Wine Co.

Andrew and Louise Burchell moved to Mount Gambier with a view to start a family, grow grapes and craft wines that showcase the unique terroir of their home.

Mount Gambier is Australia's youngest volcano, having last erupted only 6000 years ago. The Burchell farm and their additional leased vineyards are all set on the slopes of Mount Gambier, the mix of rich volcanic soils and mineral-charged water making for unique grape growing conditions in their little patch of earth.

The Good Intentions wines are all made with indigenous yeasts, bottled unfined and unfiltered and released with little to no sulphur. These are slightly wild and idiosyncratic wines packed with personality. 

An interesting producer doing things just a little bit different in their patch of the country.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Electric, vibrant colour and the electric perfume to go with it. It's all tangello and nectarine, shaped by tart, crunchy acidity, full of life and vigour. There's great volume of fruit. Delicious and a little wild. A really cool take on Gris. - Different Drop Wine Team

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?

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).
