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 Mura Pinot Noir is an exploration of whole bunch winemaking on Pinot Noir. As the Kerri Greens team say, if you're going to use whole bunch, you better have great natural acidity. The Mura has it in spade.

This is a spicy, sappy, full-flavoured Pinot Noir from an excellent Mornington vintage.

Great buying in the context of this premium Pinot producing region.

Working with whole bunch wine is always a little tricky. Being close to the sea we have lovely cool days and moderate nights. So whilst our flavours are able to progress slowly in their ripening, becoming complex and intense, we don't necessarily keep all that natural acid.


Whole bunch winemaking loves acid, it's just one of them things. The vintage of 2020 offered long gentle ripening conditions, retaining plenty of natural acid.


The Murra Pinot Noir comes from our Silverwood vineyard in Balnarring. Hand picked and placed as whole bunches in a single 2tonne open fermenter, we kick things off with a dash of already wild fermenting Pinot Noir at the base. Covered for 2 weeks before pressing to tank then barrel, old french barriques.

93 Points - "From the Silverwood vineyard in Balnarring. Carbonic fermentation, raised in old barrels. No fining, no filtration, minimum sulphur. All good things in my book.

Amaro herb and bergamot perfume, spice, strawberry and watermelon. It’s light, but flavoursome, playful fine grained emery tannin, fresh and a little bit sappy, heaps of spice and subtle herbal bitterness, finishes with more of that delightful amaro tang and a dusting of tannin. Such bounce or joie de vivre or something along those lines." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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.
