Description

The Estate Pinot is a blend of three blocks on the Kooyong vineyard site: Meres, Haven and Ferrous - a true representation of place and vintage.

Fresh berries and a touch of pomegranate on the nose. Darker fruit shows on the palate, with some earthy spices.

Wild fermented in a large oak fourdre, concrete tank and stainless steel, with a good dollop of whole bunches included. Unfined and minimal filtering, for max flavour.

Kooyong Estate Pinot Noir comprises fruit from our Meres, Haven and Ferrous blocks. It offers an overall expression of the Kooyong vineyard, with parcels of fruit from various soils and mesoclimates blended to create the Estate label. Each year the same parcels are consistently chosen, giving this wine an underlying likeness across vintages.

93 Points - "It’s a wine defined by its shape. It angles towards the finish and then pushes on out; the pulleys are in place from the beginning. Twiggy spice, a general woody/savouriness, dark cherry and a light coating of cedar. I wouldn’t call it taut but I would call it firm and indeed strict. It’s as though the wine’s flavour run on converging rails. " - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

93 Points - "One of the go-to pinots for the region, as it can come from no other place. Dark cherries abound, fragrant on the nose and sweet on the palate, with woodsy spices, charry oak plus a hint of blood orange. Lots of textural grippy tannins, but they are ripe and woven into the full-bodied palate. Lively acidity lengthens it out." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

93 Points - "Medium to deep purple/red hue, excellent colour. Spicy, smoky oak overlying dark-cherry fruit on an uncannily Burgundy-like bouquet and palate. Intense and driving, powerful and lingering, with appropriate tannin grip and structure that holds it long into an extended aftertaste. Impressive stuff." - Huon Hooke (The Real Reeview)

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.
