About The Wine

Sam Coverdale is living his dream. Farming a little patch of Mornington Peninsula and making wines that he loves to drink.

"We believe that great wines have character and balance, and that they are grown on the vine." he says, hence his move toward organic farming principals.

The more care he has taken in the vineyard, the better the wines have become. The proof really is in the pudding.

This Pinot Noir, a blend of fruit from selected blocks on his estate, is one of his slickest releases to date. It's made with a gentle touch, a little carbonic maceration to bring out the red fruit and perfume, but with some gravelly base notes to off-set the prettiness.

It's a bold and plush style of Pinot Noir which deserves a big glass and plenty of air.

The Wine Front

"There’s a real sense of energy around the Polperro wines of Mornington Peninsula. A reevaluation of the blue chip wineries of the region comes with that. The wines are still of the typical flesh and generosity of the region, but seem to find a slightly, dare I say, and I hate using this word with wine, ‘funky’ feel. Ugh. I said it.Cloudy garnet colour in glass, a colour I like with pinot noir. Has a supple feel in the mouth, coupled to that are sheets of light but make-their-presence-known tannins. Very good. More in the sour cherry, ‘sous bois’-forest floor kind of zone for scents and flavours, it’s a savoury rendition here with, well, plenty to savour. I like this very much also. Add all this up and there’s a pretty compelling sort of wine in the glass. And, I reckon, better with three years under its belt when that gamey character can flourish from forest floor stuff. Nice one team." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

The fruit is handpicked and destemmed into 2 ton open fermenters as whole berries and left to start fermenting naturally.

It is not touched until a 2-3° drop in baume , which allows fermentation to occur inside the grape berry to increase the aromatics of the finished wine. Once fermentation starts strongly then the ferment is handplunged 2-3 times per day for 15 days.

The wine is left on skins for post ferment maturation for another 15 days. It is than pressed off skins and racked to barrel. 30 % new oak and predominately Sirugue extra tight grain light toast. In spring the wine is racked and returned to barrel.

After a total of 16 months barrel maturation the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
Closure : Cork
Bottle Size : 750ml

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).
