About The Wine

Some very sharp buying here from the experienced hands of Martin Siebert.

This is one of those hidden gem wines that seems to have flown under the radar somewhat. It ticks so many boxes - Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from the strong 2018 vintage that comes in at under $30 a bottle - wins all round.

This is fruit from two very different sites in the Yarra. Siebert says his time in Burgundy taught him the importance of selecting the right site to make great wine - he seems to have chosen very, very well.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The grapes for this wine come from a mature vineyard in the Coldstream sub-region of the Yarra Valley, a pocket known for more fuller bodied and savoury Pinot Noir. It is easy to make wines overly rich in Coldstream so there was an emphasis on picking at the right time when the fruit was fresh flavoured and tight. Wild yeasts did the fermenting before a long and gentle soak on skins to build the fine tannin structure that supports the red cherry fruit. A lick of new oak frames the wine and brings some smokey complexity.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 13.5%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2027
Bottle Size : 750ml

The Wine Front

"Put this wine on your radar. It’s murky and complex. That’s a good start, particularly given that it’s also sensibly priced. It tastes of red cherry, fresh beetroot, woody spices and herbs, though the emphasis is on lightly stewed, freshly served fruit. There’s a dry drift of tannin, chalky almost, but it’s perfectly integrated as part of the whole. It’s not a deep pinot noir but it has something extra." - Campbell Mattinson (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).
