About The Wine

A lo-fi Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir here born from a spin off of the iconic Quealy family label.

Tom McCarthy is the son of Kevin and Kathleen, raised in the family business, he knows Mornington Peninsula vineyards like the back of his hand. For the Kerri Green label, he and Quealy vineyard manager Lucas Blanck and their partners Sarah Saxton and Alyce Blanck, have teamed up to start a small label exploring some of these sites.

The Mura Pinot Noir is an exploration of whole bunch winemaking on Pinot Noir. As the Kerri Greens team say, if you're going to use whole bunch, you better have great natural acidity. The Mura has it in spade.

This is a spicy, sappy, full-flavoured Pinot Noir from an excellent Mornington vintage.

Great buying in the context of this premium Pinot producing region.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Working with whole bunch wine is always a little tricky. Being close to the sea we have lovely cool days and moderate nights. So whilst our flavours are able to progress slowly in their ripening, becoming complex and intense, we don't necessarily keep all that natural acid.

Whole bunch winemaking loves acid, it's just one of them things. The vintage of 2019 offered exemplary conditions, plenty of natural acid, sophisticated intricate flavour profiles barely contained by small healthy berries on hardened stems.

The Murra Pinot Noir comes from our home site up at Red Hill. Various clones of Pinot Noir planted by Geoff and Sue Duke from 1989 through to 1994 combine to produce a wine definitely of its place. Hand picked and placed as whole bunches in a single 2tonne open fermenter, we kick things off with a dash of already wild fermenting Pinot Noir at the base. Covered for 2 weeks before basket pressing to tank then barrel, old french barriques.

Racking and bottling took place over 3 days in early December, unfined, unfiltered with sulphur kept to a minimum.

The Wine Front

"Stalky and spicy, fresh red fruits, fine level of rosy perfume. It’s medium-bodied, tight and crunchy, with a distinct ‘mineral’ feel to it, along with cool acidity, sharp focus, and fine slate-y tannin. Finish is sappy and fresh fruited, long and clean. It feels vital and drinks beautifully. A light touch. Beautifully made, too." - Gary Walsh (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. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney.

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).
