About The Wine

Dan Buckle's Circe Pinot is a lovely, mid-weight earthy wine.

Sourced from three small Pinot vineyards across the Mornington, the colour is light for Mornington Pinot, and the aromas are of dark cherries and autumn foliage. Good tangy finish to an excellent value proposition.

Circe was a mythical sorceress who tried to change Odysseus into a pig. This is a seductive little number but maybe not to that extent.

About Circe

Dan Buckle's winemaking journey has taken him from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne to Coldstream Hills, Langi Ghiran, Domaine Chandon, and now, back to his home in Mornington Peninsula with his passion project that is Circe.

This label was conceived during the Langi days with his partner in crime Aaron Drummond. “I wanted a creative outlet where I could do whatever I want. We wanted to get back to what the Mornington does best - which is mostly Pinot Noir”, Dan told us when he popped in.

The Peninsula is in his blood. Heard of the Buckle Vineyard made famous by Tuck's Ridge? Well, Dan's dad planted that vineyard in the 80's. He's one of "those" Buckles. This wine captures his love and knowledge of the region.

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.

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 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).
