Description

If you're looking for a sparkling wine which will impress everyone, Bellebonne is wine for you. It's a small boutique operation, so points for those who aim for obscurity, but it is also delivers on quality. And then some. We are absolutely smitten with it.

Made entirely from Pinot Noir and in a rose style, it is surprisingly bold and complex for its relative youth. Pale pink colour, with some rose petals, cranberry and toasty croissant coming through on the nose. The palate is deep and long, defined by a gentle mousse, and with some typical Pinot flavours coming through - berries and spices, fresh herbs and a generous pastry element. Beautiful wine.

97 points & Top 100 Wines of 2023
"It has a beautiful flow along and across the mouth thanks to its perfect balance."
- James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

Made from 100% Tasmanian Pinot Noir, this is delicate pink with salmon blush and super fine bubbles. The aromas are a meld of strawberry, marzipan, Turkish delight and buttery pastry. While the flavours are subtle, there is a delicious roundness in the mouth set against a fine tannin finish with the barest touch of bitter orange pith.

96 points - "Pipers River pinot noir from four rows of vines, fermented in eight-year-old barrels with 100% mlf. Early picked for the aromatic purity it provides, and it really shows. A beautiful salmon hue with a fine energetic bead and mousse, stunning aromatics of redcurrant, wild strawberries, red apple and raspberry with notes of mushroom broth, fresh pastry, crushed river stone and light creamy notes. Super savoury and pure, gentle tannin texture from the barrel ferment and a long, harmonious finish. Gorgeous drinking." - Dave Brookes (Halliday Wine Companion)

97 points & Top 100 Wines of 2023 - "Only 267 dozen bottles made, sourced from four rows of pinot noir in the Pipers River district of Tasmania. The palest pink hue, with a bouquet full of meadow flowers, the delicate palate adding wild strawberries. It has a beautiful flow along and across the mouth thanks to its perfect balance." - James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

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.
