About The Wine

You just won't find a better value Pinot Noir in Mornington Peninsula than Yabby Lake's Red Claw Pinot Noir.

This is made in a similar vein to the Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Pinot Noir just in a more approachable style.

It's all about bright, lively fruit, a soft, supple mid-palate and a juicy, pleasing finish which drags you back to the glass.

For mid-week Pinot Noir from a top-flight producer, there are few other examples which offer the value for money than the Red Claw.

The 2018 vintage received 95 points from James Halliday making it one of the highest rated releases in recent years.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Handpicked, with each parcel handled separately in the winery. Hand sorted and carefully destemmed (25% whole bunches), each parcel went into traditional open fermenters. The wine underwent three days of cold soaking to ensure even and thorough extraction. Batches were on skins for 7-10 days, after which time they were transferred into French oak (500L puncheons) for 10 months and bottled in December 2018.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
Drink Until : 2026

"Whole bunch ferments and matured in used French puncheons. There are very few entry pinot noirs with value such as this. An utterly delicious tapestry of red and purple fruits sewn through a fine web of tannins, the finish long and convincing." - James Halliday (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 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).
