Description

The Eclipse Vineyard Pinot from Luna Estate is among the finest Martinborough Pinots you may not have come across. The vineyard sits of the gravel-dominant soils of the Martinborough Terrace and produces a wine of depth, structure and intense stony minerality.

Some whole bunch inclusions and some new French oak maturation add gravitas to the beautifully poised violet and red plum fruit. Savoury herbal and spicy notes also in the mix.

A memorable, toned and approachable Pinot that really caught our eye.

No winery additions apart from a touch of sulphur.

Planted between 1993 and 2005 and farmed organically. Some of the deepest free-draining gravels on the famed Martinborough Terrace. Delivering power with elegance which typifies Pinot Noir from this Cru. Handpicking, gentle handling, and careful oak selection ensure we remain faithful in the expression of our site and of every vintage. Built to cellar.

94 Points - "Nice people at Luna Estate, doing nice things. So that’s nice. Here we have a wine from 1992 plantings, with a bit of whole bunch and 15% new oak.

Cherry and plum, baking spice, coffee grounds and clay, and lively dried herb and green capsicum top note. It’s plush, a bit savoury, quite a fleshy feel in the mouth, rich cocoa tannin, a subtle dried orange peel bitterness, and crushed rock kind of thing happening on the finish. I like that it doesn’t feel too forced, nor trying too hard. Nice expression of vineyard here. A charmer." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

95 Points - "Delicate, almost ethereal pinot noir with floral, violet, red cherry, spicy oak and a hint of mineral flavours. Impressive purity and subtle power with a tantalising lingering finish. Very impressive." - Bob Campbell. NZ Wine of the Week 8 Sept 2021 (The Real Review)

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.
