About

About The Wine

From a high altitude vineyard in the Macedon Ranges comes the new kid on the block from Shadowfax.

Approachable now but will reward a bit of time in bottle... if you can manage that.

An exciting Pinot from the Macedon Ranges, a region finally starting to receive the recognition it deserves.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Our Chief Winemaker Alister Timms has a strong focus on regionality with the majority of fruit sourced and hand-harvested from our vineyards in the Macedon Ranges and Werribee as well as small growers in Geelong. Each and every vineyard has its own distinct characteristics and produces grapes of only the highest quality.

Cherry fruits and floral notes fill the palate. There are complexities galore all sitting on a precise palate of lacy fine tannins with lovely acid core. The palate is long and persistent with evolving complexities as time goes by in the glass. A fine example of cool climate, single vineyard, high altitude Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir.

The Wine Front

This is a new wine for Shadowfax. Close planted in the 80s, while wearing tight T-shirts and a pair of Scoops, sitting 800m up on the north side of Mount Macedon. A moderate 20% new oak employed. This trio of 2019 Shadowfax are hitting new heights (pun intended). What a delight. The whole shootin’ match. The dark cherry flavour. The sliding graphite tannin. The cool ‘mineral’ acidity. The length. It’s floral, seasoned with spice and dried herb, offers bass and treble, clean lines, and makes you want to drink it with a feverish haste, which is a rare admission for this little piggy. It’s a beauty. - 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. 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).
