About The Wine

Nicholas Crampton (Woods Crampton) knows how to knock out a bottle of wine that seriously overdelivers in value for money.

When looking to produce a light, smashable Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley, Nick teamed up with Punt Road winemaker Tim Shand to produce this little beauty.

It's bursting with juicy red berries and a tickle of spice. And importantly, it scratches the Yarra Pinot itch at under $20 a bottle. That's not something you see every day.

If you're looking for an easy mid-week Pinot, this is a great option that won't bust the bank.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Vineyard: Sourced from a combination of upper and lower Yarra Vineyards, but primarily from vineyards within the Coldstream sub-region.

Winemaking: Mostly machine harvested with select hand picking of individual blocks. De-stemmed and fully fermented in open top fermenters with a small addition of whole bunches for complexity. The wine was blended when fermentation complete and transferred to stainless steel for maturation with 25% moving to 2-year-old French oak for 6 months. The wine was then bottled with minimal fining and filtration and had minimal sulphur additions.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2023
Bottle Size : 750ml

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Bright cherry and purple with red brick hues. Pinot Noir fragrance exemplified with plum, spice, strawberry and autumn leaves. The palate is light to medium weighted but with mouth-staining flavour. Similar notes of lifted red and purple fruits with the subtle complexing of undergrowth, minerals and twig. A beautiful Pinot Noir from a very fine vintage that is drinking superbly now but will also reward short term cellaring." - Nick Crampton

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
