Description

The fruit from the Reserve Pinot Noir is sourced from the five best clones on the Ashton Hills Estate.

It boasts aromas of red fruits and plum, entwined with savoury notes. It was aged in French oak, which gives the wine layers of fine tannins that provide a lingering, supple finish.

This is a deliciously powerful Pinot Noir, and it's no wonder that Ashton Hills is being regarded as one of the most distinguished sites in South Australia for producing this variety.

The Reserve Pinot Noir is sourced purely from our five preferred clones on the estate. The fruit is de-stemmed via a small, customised, gentle de-stemmer that keeps as many whole berries as possible. Some whole bunches are included, the percentage varying according to the style of the vintage. After fermentation, the fruit is basket pressed direct to a combination of old and new French oak barriques. The wine is made without any additions until bottling.

97 Points - "A darker, more earthy and foresty feel here than the Estate version, and a different proportional mix of clones. The cherry sense is blacker fruit, while the acidity and mouthfeel are ramped up, evenly, to be more powerful once you engage. Likewise the aromatics, nose and palate, are poised, waiting to find their lift in time. Experience says this wine will be on another level in 5 years." - Tony Love (Halliday Wine Companion)

96 Points - "Good depth of red with a nice tinge of purple. The bouquet is lovely and fragrant, floral and mixes red with dark cherry, the palate medium-weight only but lovely textured, succulence, ample soft tannins and refinement. Some spices, vanilla and a nice note of smoked-meats and charcuterie. A wine of detail. The finish is long and resonant, with a little alcohol warmth." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

95 Points - "Dark cherry, intensity, distinct dried rose perfume, spice, cedar wood and pencil. Excellent volume of flavour – cherry and strawberry mainly – and carrying a good pack of tannin. Length. Balance. Even a bit ‘mineral’ thrown in for good measure. Fluid and lovely to drink." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Ordering

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.
