Description

A lo-fi Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir here born from a spin off of the iconic Quealy family label.

Tom McCarthy is the son of Kevin and Kathleen, raised in the family business, he knows Mornington Peninsula vineyards like the back of his hand. For the Kerri Green label, he and Quealy vineyard manager Lucas Blanck and their partners Sarah Saxton and Alyce Blanck, have teamed up to start a small label exploring some of these sites.

The collective have farmed this vineyard, the Silverwood vineyard, since the 2016 vintage. The fruit from this site has come along in leaps and bounds.

A majestic Pinot Noir has emerged this season, brimming with plush ripe fruit and a sense of tension that is reminiscent of Nebbiolo or similar. Very high level Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir here and a steal at the price for the quality on offer.

Hand harvested, a selection of rows from the Silverwood vineyard. We experienced long, gentle ripening conditions in 2020 delivering a spotless crop with an intricate flavour profile. Fruit was picked in the second week of March.


Fully destemmed directly to bins by gravity, as softly and slowly as possible, no crush. The focus being on keeping the berries as whole as possible. There was no addition of sulphur or yeast and the must was left undisturbed until fermentation naturally began 5 days later.


Plunged softly, lovingly, daily. With a significantly reduced crop this year the decision was made to use no new wood, for fear of overpowering the delicate fruit. Left to mature in a 1yo and a 2yo Francois Freres Puncheons for a full 12 months..

92 Points - "Smoky spice whiffs over ripe cherry, strawberry fruit notes in bouquet and palate. Sense of energy to taste with bright, crisp acidity over smoked paprika spice flavours. Some green herb, dried leaf in the mix too. Savoury is a good word here. Lovely, slick texture and nice chew to tannin. Good drink." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

95 Points - "Silverwood vineyard, sustainably managed by Kerri Greens since 2016. Gently handled, destemmed whole berries. 18 days on skins, matured for 1 year in puncheons, 25% new. A more structured offering compared to the Murra wine, all dark cherries, warm earth and some charry/meaty notes adding another layer of flavour. Full bodied, with grainy ripe tannins, great persistence and a pleasing bitter radicchio finish." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

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.
