About The Wine

Shy Susan has come out of the blocks all guns blazing with a suite of impeccable Tasmanian wines that are garnering huge critical acclaim.

Winemakers Jo Marsh and Glenn James have taken full advantage of the near-perfect growing season in 2018 and crafted a beautiful Pinot Noir here.

The majority of the fruit came from the Huon Valley, one of the premier Pinot pockets on the Apple Isle. It's silky, seductive and poised. A class act Pinot Noir that will drink wonderfully now and for the next decade plus.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The 2018 season can be considered as close to perfect as you can get for Pinot Noir in Tasmania. Moderate crop, even ripening and low disease pressure.

A blend of from three mature vineyards in the Huon Valley (67%), Derwent Valley (21%) and Coal RIver valley (12%) from D2V6, MV6 and D2V5 clones.Hand harvested fruit was handled using a variety of techniques including cold soak, wild fermentation and whole bunch inclusion with one small parcel 100% whole bunch.

This was foot stomped at stages during the ferment. Other components were hand plunged twice per day. Post fermentation maceration of up to 4 weeks to build the required structure and complexity before basket pressing. Maturation in several size formats of french oak (300L to 2000L) on lees for 16 months prior to blending and bottling.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 13.50%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2028
Bottle Size : 750ml

Halliday Wine Companion

"From the Huon Valley (67%), Derwent Valley (21%) and Coal River Valley (12%). Hand-picked, but from there on a significant number of vinification methods were used. Shy Susan says '18 was close to perfect for pinot noir, and a quick sniff and sip brings instantaneous agreement, redoubling with every additional taste. The only pity is that the make was limited to 130 dozen." - 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 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).
