Description

The Bell Hill Old Weka Pass Road Pinot Noir is a fresh, approachable introduction to Bell Hill's refined winemaking style. Made from younger vines in the Westbank, Quarry, and Roadblock vineyards, this wine showcases vibrant, easy-drinking charm.

This Pinot Noir is crafted from just a couple of hand-picked barrels, with 66% aged in new French oak for 12 months, followed by 9 months in tank. Expect fresh red berry aromas with hints of spice and earth. The palate is light and vibrant, featuring cherry and raspberry flavours, balanced by fine structure and acidity. The finish is smooth and refreshing, with youthful exuberance.

With only 437 bottles produced, this Pinot Noir is a rare gem and an ideal introduction to Bell Hill’s exceptional craftsmanship.

The Old Weka Pass Road Pinot Noir is a 1.5-barrel blend from select barrels of the Slope and light press fractions. The handling on skins is the same as for the Bell Hill and the French oak was also 66% new. The wine was racked and blended after 12 months in barrel, it had 9 months in tank and was bottled on the 18th of December 2020 with a pH of 3.51, TA of 5.9g/L, and alcohol of 12%. 437 bottles were produced.

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.
