About The Wine

A hidden gem of the Apple Isle, the Small Island Wines are making plenty of noise with only a small range.

This is their single site Pinot Noir from the Glen Garry vineyard in the North of the island. Focused, intense and brooding, this is a Pinot Noir with a lot of charisma.

Oak set decidedly to the background, the fruit from this excellent vineyard front and centre.

Only tiny amounts made.

About Small Island Wines

Small Island Wines is a mirco-batch Tasmanian wine company founded by James Broinowski in 2015 after raising the money to launch his brand via a successful crowd-funding campaign through Kickstarter.

James focuses his time on producing Pinot Noir with regional accents from around Tasmania, with a little Rosé and Riesling being made as well.

The wines have received quite a lot of press in only a short amount of time. James Halliday wrote, "It looks very much like a potential acorn to oak story, for the quality of the wines is seriously good." after trying only the first release from 2015.

Since then, James hasn't looked back.

The Wine Front

"It starts off delicate and then turns super-dry. It’s be interesting to see how this matures. Twiggy herb notes, black cherry, clove and woodsmoke. It doesn’t offer a great deal aromatically but it’s up-and-about on the palate. I kept wanting to like it but it kept looking like the wine of a tough season. Time might surprise." - Campbell Mattinson (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 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).
