A quiet storm of a Pinot Noir, and excellent with it too.

About the Wine

This is a marvellously fresh and energetic Pinot Noir that perfectly expresses the "house-style" of Ben Haines.

Juicy plums, berries and zesty citrus give a kiss to a light herbaceousness, wrapped up in a beautiful texture and dry finish.

It's a package of composed complexity, with vibrance and freshness in tow.

The Wine Front

"Different style of Pinot Noir here. Nutty, tight, raspberry and cherry, floral, sappy. Tight, bony, but flavoursome, milky almond texture, strawberry and spice, kind of juicy and exuberant too, red and black fruit, dry grip, and a long and composed finish of excellent length. A quiet storm of a Pinot Noir, and excellent with it too. The almond, the red fruits, the finesse. So composed. Delightful." - 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).
