An excellent pinot.

About The Wine

The Haven Pinot Noir is a beautiful expression of Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir.

A riot of floral aromatics and a seamless, slippery palate, this is a class act wine that drinks beautifully from day one.

Bright fruit notes marry with aromas of dried spices; it's fleshy and chewy with a powerful finish. It's a stunning example of Pinot Noir, and it gives a comforting warmth with every sip.

About Kooyong Estate

Kooyong is one of the Mornington Peninsula's most iconic wineries, a specialist in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, while also making some cracking Pinot Gris.

Their 40 hectare home is in Tuerong, in the north of the region, and consists of five distinct vineyard blocks from which limited quantities of Single Block wines are made when vintage conditions allow.

Their 'entry level' wines, the Clonale Chardonnay and Massale Pinot Noir, offer extremely good value for money and a great snapshot of regional style.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Kooyong vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong, on Miocene sedimentary soils. Our wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of our geology and soils with the macroclimate of our region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within our vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season.

Our cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice.

Critic Reviews

95Points
The Wine Front

"Red fruits, spicy and earthy, floral too. Medium-bodied, spiced strawberry and sour cherry, tight and quite sappy, fine emery tannin, lively and fresh to close, with a sort of sweet soil thing happening. Really like this. Finely etched, detail and embroidery, or something like that." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

The Real Review

"Medium to light ruby colour with purple tinges, the bouquet shows smoked-smallgoods, mushrooms, a faint trace of reduction, a note of dried flower heads and a trace of oak. The wine is elegant and refined on the tongue; smooth and savoury as it glides towards and long, supple, deliciously lingering finale. An excellent pinot." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Haven always has more grunt than the other 2 single-block pinots. It's a whorl of spiced dark cherries, beetroot and earthy rhubarb, zest of blood orange with sweet and charry oak encompassing all. Full bodied, with lots of tannins yet the palate has some give driven by lively acidity." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
