This is the only wine from Hirsch that sees some non-estate fruit used, about 30%, sourced from their neighbouring vineyard. It is mainly composed of estate fruit, off some of the younger vines in their vineyards.

This is a brilliant high-toned wine, an elegant Pinot that perfectly represents those vineyards that line the Bohan-Dillon Road of the Sonoma Coast. Easy-drinking, showing a lithe body with solid structure on the palate. Lots of red cherry, black currant, and damp earth forest floor kind of vibe.

This is a real youthful style of wine, yet at the same time it has the bones to age and evolve quite gracefully. The care and attention it receives in the winery is the same as their top cuvees and knowing how much love they put it to their wines, that says a lot.

The Bohan Dillon is an affordable world-class Pinot Noir that brings to your glass the full spectrum of the True Sonoma Coast. Precociously charming and utterly quaffable, this wine is produced using the exact same winemaking methods and with the same attention to detail as our other pinots. The 2017 Bohan Dillon is a blend of 70% Hirsch Vineyards Pinot Noir and 30% Hellenthal Vineyard Pinot Noir, the only vineyard contiguous to Hirsch.

92 Points - "This has such fresh and lively cherries with sappy appeal, in a very fresh and vibrant mode. Roses and fresh forest berries abound here. The palate has a beautifully defined and elegant feel. The freshness is compelling and a bright, 12.6% abv clinches the deal here. Bravo! " James Suckling

90 Points - "The 2017 Pinot Noir Bohan Dillon is fascinating to taste next to the 2016. The 2017 possesses good up-front fruit and brightness, but the tannins are also larger and more coarse. The wine's feel might be attributable to the specifics of the 2017 growing season and/or to the slightly higher percentage of whole clusters (25%) in this vintage. It will be interesting to see if the 2017 softens with a bit more time in bottle. There is good brightness and plenty of nuance, although today I give a slight nod to the 2016." Antonio Galloni (Vinous)

91 Points - "Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 The Bohan Dilon Pinot Noir is softly scented of underbrush, moss, crushed stone, woodsmoke and black tea leaves with nuances of amaro and a core of delicate red berries. The palate is light to medium-bodied with delicate intensity, finely woven soft, grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long and nuanced. Great value!" Erin Brooks (Parker Wine Advocate)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.
