2018 Ngeringa Uncultured Pinot Noir

Highly Rated
Bargain biodynamically farmed Pinot Noir from the Adelaide Hills. "This is a ‘pinot of the year’ contender. Mark my words." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Sale price$30.00


Winemaker Erinn Klein has knocked this Pinot out of the park.

The 'Uncultured' series of wines are Erinn's more lo-fi expressions of his biodynamic vineyard in the Adelaide Hills.

This whole bunch Pinot Noir is a ridiculous bargain. It's a wine that will drag you back to the glass again and again, and at this price, you're able to go back as many times as you like!

In his rave review, Mike Bennie calls this a "Stunning pinot noir of complexity and vitality." and a contender for Pinot Noir of the Year in his book. It's a vibrant, smashable Pinot Noir that is full to the brim with delicious sweet fruits and a spicy, savoury finish. Top notch drinking from this class grower/producer.

Ngeringa Estate's Uncultured Pinot Noir is made from solely estate-grown fruit, from our steep easterly facing Summit vineyard slope, sitting 360m above sea level, with a direct line of sight to Lake Alexandrina and the Murray mouth, consequently receiving cooling evening breezes which do much to preserve our fruit acids and flavours through the critical weeks of ripening.Wild fermentation, no enzymes, gentle extraction, minimal temperature control.

The grapes are gently hand-harvested and processed using 100% carbonic maceration, which allows for fermentation of the whole berries, meaning that they remain intact without crushing or removal of stems. The fruit is then left to steep for seven days before pressing into small seasoned French barrels, for eleven months of maturation. Our Uncultured Pinot Noir 2018 is lovingly estate bottled under screw cap, with a minimal addition of sulphur to prevent oxidation.

95 Points - "This is a 'pinot of the year' contender. Mark my words. Beautiful wine, pretty perfume, herbs and red cherries, touch of sour cherry even, whiffs of botanicals and amaro - a lot going on in aromas. Glossy, shiny, clean and bright in the palate, sappy cherry characters, light creaminess in finish, so fresh in feel with amaro-botanicals jostling with fruit character and just a faint burr of earthy-savouriness and autumnal character. Stunning pinot noir of complexity and vitality." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
