About The Wine

The Dog & Wolf Pinot Noir is Ricky's pride and joy.

Inspired by the French expression ‘entre chien et loup’, it translates to ‘between dog and wolf’, a reference to the time of day when it is hardest to distinguish between the two creatures, just as day becomes night. He wants this Pinot Noir to walk that line. The line between wild and tame, between ferocious and approachable, raw and refined.

The fruit is all from his own small patch of earth, as such, there's only a tiny amount in existence, each bottle lovingly tended to every step of the way.

It's a gorgeous wine which perfectly captures the imagery of the name; a thrilling Pinot Noir experience.

About Two Tonne Tasmania

With the slogan ‘small parcels, big love’, Ricky Evans' thoughtful winemaking approach has seen his southern star rise rapidly with a swag of accolades in a relatively short time.

Since his serendipitous entry into the much sought-after sub-region of the Tamar Valley in 2013, he has garnered a reputation for producing some of Tasmania's most exciting and hard-to-get small batch wines.

Pinot Noir is Ricky’s main game, and he plays hardball. His Pinots show brilliant light and shade. A gentle touch in the winery allows fruit and vineyard to shine - a theme that carries through his excellent regional examples of Riesling and Chardonnay.

The wines of TTT typify the purity and elegance of modern Tasmania.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The name comes from the French expression, ‘entre chien et loup’. Translated this is ‘between dog and wolf’. It is used to describe a specific time of day, just before night, when the light is so dim you can’t distinguish a dog from a wolf. It expresses that limit between the familiar, the comfortable versus the unknown and the dangerous, between domestic and wild. It is an uncertain threshold between hope and fear.

This wine is produced with all these elements in mind; it is a blend of two vastly different winemaking styles.

The Wine Front

"Beautiful perfume here. Everything feels delicate but ultra-fragrant, sour cherries, rose petals, some wild briary notes, fennel, undergrowth. Incredible. So beautiful and savoury. Great shape in the palate, crisp tannins, more sour cherry and herbal stuff, light sappiness and then a drawstring pulling tight on the bergamot-tinged tannins. Exceptional feel. Tasmania, pinot noir, elegance, strictness, excitement. Yowsers." - Mike Bennie (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?

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).
