About The Wine

Philippa Farr is part of Australia's royal family of Pinot Noir making. Her brother Nick and father Gary are two of the most influential winemakers in the Geelong region.

Philippa has spread her wings and chosen Gippsland as her home base. From there she is quietly crafting some minuscule batches of beautiful Pinot Noir.

This wine comes from a select site in Mornington Peninsula. Here you see all the regional power that is characteristic of Mornington. It's plush, polished and shows flawless flow through the mouth.

If you want to be clued into the next generation of Australian winemaking superstars, Philippa should definitely be on your list.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The fruit for the 2018 comes from the same vineyard we have been working with for the last few years, The vines are 20 years old and really hitting its straps. It's predominantly clone 115, with some MV6 and 114. This vineyard is well protected and a consistently delivering southeast-facing slope, made up of rich red loam over course gravel.

As the emphasis is on the region, my comments repeat year in, year out of the Mornington wine. The 2018 is no exception. The fruit shines through on the nose of deep, dark berry notes and the palate of medium body weight is streamlined with the fine acid line. - Pip Farr

The Wine Front

"Oak is a bit showy at present but the structure, complexity and shape of this wine is excellent. Hold on, this wine is going places. Dry spice, musk, redcurrant and fragrant herb notes are all strung on firm, rangy tannin. The flavours cavort this way and that, there’s even a touch of choc-orange here, but I love how serious this wine feels throughout the entire length of the palate." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

What is it with the Farrs and their wines?

Another elegant, well-structured bottle with pronounced notes of cherry, earth and leather.

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 1300 668 385 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).
