About The Wine

Haddow & Dineen is a budding wine partnership between long-time Josef Chromy winemaker, Jeremy Dineen, and Bruny Island Cheese and Bruny Island Beer founder, Nick Haddow.

The two share a philosophy around sustainable farming and crafting high-quality artisan products. It's a collaboration that is well worth tracking down, the early signs are stellar.

This Pet Nat comes from a melding of their excellent Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris wines. Made in the ancient methode of bottling before the primary ferment is complete, this takes on a redish colour with sweet floral top notes and a lively bubble on the palate.

Only a small amounts made.

Additional Info

From The Producer

After the ‘19 Ancestrale sold out quickly, we made a bit more in ‘20.

80% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Gris from the white gravel soils of the Yorktown Vineyard. Wild yeast fermentation begins in tank and completes in the bottle with no dosage.

The wine is sealed while completing fermentation and will contain yeast sediment. The oldest and most fraught way to make sparkling wine.

Bugger all produced. Be quick. Wild, complex and not for everyone. One hundred days you wait for it, Something bright, Something so good.

Blend : Pinot Noir (80%), Pinot Gris (20%)
ABV : 12%
Closure : Crown
Drink Until : 2022
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Super yeasty, super creamy, wild strawberry meets almond meal meats meringue meets lemon curd. Yew. Cloudy in the glass, lots of hazy, creamy texture, good, light riff of bubbles, nice, sweeter, fresher feel to the pet nat, though, yeah, you gotta dig savouriness too. Legit expression here." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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.

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 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.
