About The Wine

Gloria is the single vineyard Pinot Noir grown on the Buttons' Basket Range property.

Jasper Button's winemaking skills continue to evolve and his gains in this discipline are no more pronunced than in the purity he is showcasing in his Pinot Noirs. This was fermented in large open top Jarrah fermenters, aged for eleven months in old oak then sent to stainless steel to settle before bottling.

As with all of his wines, minimal intervention in the winery is the modus operandi. The only whisper of sulphur was added just after malo to ensure the wine's stability.

This is a charming Pinot Noir with a gentle elegant feel.

About Commune of Buttons

Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home a few years ago to help save their family vineyard, planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay 20 years ago by their mother.

They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic principles, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking.

Just a couple vintages in, the results have been fantastic. The wines are made naturally with only minimal sulphur additions and slow, gentle ferments. The Buttons wines are as loveable as the family who made them.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Gloria vineyard is 1Ha of 25 year-old dry grown pinot vines grown in clay and sandstone soils rich in ironstone, quartz and basalt. In 2019 the grapes were picked early due to extreme heat on the 1st and 2nd of March. They were chilled overnight and then fermentation was in open 10hL jarrah fermenters for around 10 days. There was a high proportion of whole-bunches 80% in 2019. The a light hand and semi-carbonic conditions made for strawberry and cherry fruits to dominate. Cool and slow maceration allowed for the tannins to slowly infuse into the wine giving full integration and continuity of the palate.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 12.5%
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2025

The Wine Front

"Lots of stemmy, green, herbal character, some mezcal and brambly-undergrowth notes. Soupy texture, supple and sheathed in the most feathery, fine tannins, more of the green herb and mulchy greenery. It’s of a style, light and tonic-like, rosy characters, pretty and fine, lots to like here." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

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. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com 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).
