About The Wine

Led by the husband and wife team of Rebecca Wilson and Tim Duffy (winemaker and viticulturist respectively), Holm Oak's hand crafted, minimally intervened with, single vineyard wines are gaining plenty of attention.

Their Pinot Noirs are what they do best, and are much loved by Pinot lovers looking for value.

The Protege is a lighter-styled Pinot Noir built in a fruit forward style that makes terrific early drinking. It's picked early for fresh red fruit flavours then fermented with aromatic yeasts to enhance the floral bouquet. It's just a lovely, lively expression of Pinot Noir from our most southern state.

Sub $30 Pinot from Tasmania rarely looks and tastes this good!

Additional Info

From The Producer

This Pinot made to be a lighter more fruit driven style of Pinot. To achieve this we have picked the fruit at moderate sugar levels when the fruit is displaying lovely fresh strawberry and cherry characters. The fruit is then de-stemmed and fermented on skins for 10 days.

Specific yeasts which are known to enhance fruit aromatics are used to conduct the ferment. Following fermentation the wine was matured in tank prior to being bottled.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 14.5
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2025
Bottle Size : 750ml

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"This fresh, lively and aromatic Pinot shows lovely lifted strawberry and spice characters on the nose. These aromatics carry through to the palate which has fine, soft tannin, lovely bright fruit and juicy acidity. This is a gorgeously light Tasmanian Pinot Noir which is perfect drinking at any time." - Holm Oak Wines

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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).
