About

About The Wine

Neil Hawkins takes his Pet Nat very seriously.

For this wine, Neil selects some of his finest Pinot Noir from the oldest vines on his property (30-years-old).

The wine is aged on lees for 16 months before release, then hand disgorged before being sent out into the world to ensure that only the cleanest, brightest, most delightfully fizzy wines make it to your dinner table or picnic blanket.

A world away from the super-funkified Pet Nats most commonly seen these days, this is a serious wine for the devout Sparkling lover.

About The Wine Farm

The Wine Farm is a small organically farmed vineyard at the Southern-most tip of the Gippsland region.

This is one of the coolest sites on mainland Australia. The man behind the project, Neil Hawkins, along with his wife Anna, have brought this picturesque patch of land back to life since taking it over.

There are eight varieties planted over seven acres which are producing wonderful, expressive wines. Neil makes the wines with minimal intervention.

The health of the farm is their number one priority, As Neil says, "Under no circumstances whatsoever will we use herbicides, systemic fungicides or insecticides in our vines/on our property. The most important life on The Wine Farm (family and pets aside) is what crawls beneath the soils."

Additional Info

From The Producer

There’s nowhere to hide with our pét-nat. With no added sugar, zero sulphur, no additions whatsoever, you are literally left with grapes in a bottle. So those grapes had better be good! In fact this is the best wine in our stable for showcasing the vintage.

And the 2017 growing season, with its moderate, dry days and cool nights, meant flavour was formed and retained in the grapes and acids were high yet feminine. It was a great year, and a great year always translates to a high quality Pétillant Naturel.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
Closure : Crown
Drink Until : 2020
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"A nose of apples, lemons, oyster shell, strawberries and tamarillo; the palate tickled by an abundance of tiny bubbles followed by the fruits of green apple, grapefruit and strawberries and a lovely acidity that lingers around the yeasty, leesy texture." - Neil Hawkins

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).
