Ziggurat spring wines are produced with a simple philosophy in mind.  They are adventurous in winemaking style, creative and unique each year, but above all, they are fresh and textural.

About The Wine

A different take on Ziggurat Pinot Noir from young Ricky Evans in 2017.

For his lively 'nouveau' styled Pinot Noir, in the past, Ricky has played around with adding the skins of aromatic whites to the ferment. Things didn't quite pan out that way in 2017.

Instead, Ricky went hunting for a top-tier-Beaujolais style of wine. And he found it in a patch of fruit at the bottom of the hill from one of his Pinot Noir blocks.

This is about trying to find different expressions of this hallowed variety. This is made to be a delicious early drinker, with Gamay-esque mouthfeel and tantalisingly vibrant flavours. It's downright delicious.

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 saught 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.

From The Producer

In 2017, an opportunity to experiment with white grape skins, or cofermentation didn’t present. This was apparent early in the season, so my thoughts moved towards honing in on a style of winemaking I use frequently, but still attempting to master-carbonic maceration.

Chasing a style reminiscent of quality Beaujolais, I eyed off the bottom part of one of my patches of Pinot, in Relbia, which had variation I thought would suit the style. 10 days of traditional carbonic maceration, untouched, then opened up and whole bunch pressed, this wine hit old oak at 4 Baume and then rolled through naturally.

The wine sat on lees for another 3 months before clean racking, then bottling without fining or filtration. *very limited, so don’t hesitate.

DDS review

Light colour, red and purple jubes to smell and taste. Smattering of herbs through the fresh berried feel. Soft tannins and a fleshy feel for the most part but it tightens through the finish with a hit of redskin flavours to close. Such a yummy 'drinking' style of Pinot. - 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? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
