About The Wine

This wine comes from the McIntyre home vineyard in Mornington Peninsula.

Yearv on year, the fruit from this dry-grown block produces brilliant wines of intensity and structure. Vines planted as early as 1983 thriving in the warm, dry conditions on the Peninsula during the 2018 grow season, with excellent results.

The McIntyre Vineyard Pinot Noir is a wine for quiet contemplation. It will cellar well just as it impresses on release. With a huge 97 points from Huon Hooke, this is a wonderful wine from a top-flight producer.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Medium garnet in colour with red and black cherry fruit on the nose, tightly wound around subtle yet complex aromas including licorice root, cocoa, sage and rosemary and exotic cedar spice.

Opening up slowly on the palate to reveal black cherry fruit, kirsch, and more of the complex aromas that are revealing on the nose.

This single vineyard wine from our home vineyard in Derril Road is further evidence of what our fine vineyard site and mature vines can produce in a really good year. It includes some wine from interesting clones grafted onto our old Cabernet vines (planted in 1983).

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"Medium to full red colour with a tinge of purple, and a bouquet that refelcts savoury oak-matured nuances, the latter even more evident on the palate. Intense, piercing and very long, with abundant tannins and upright structure. An impressive pinot with great power and potential. The tannins are strong and firm, bordering on extreme, but it's a young wine with terrific ageing potential and those tannins will enable it to handle hearty foods. They are in harmony with the very concentrated flavour. A mighty pinot of grand cru proportions." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"A pinot of compelling flavour intensity and refined, granular tannins. These are as much a product of site, judicious extraction and well appropriated oak regime (15 months; 20% new French). Ferrous. Black cherry, satsuma plum and Asian spice. Forceful. Long and plush, without being fat or sweet. The tannins - grape and oak - operate as ample reins to the wine's exuberance." - Ned Goodwin (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
