About The Wine

Everything coming from talented Anna Pooley and her 30+-year-old family vineyard in the Coal River Valley shows pure class.

This elegant example of cool-climate Pinot Gris/Grigio.

This shows classic varietal characters of pear, musk and spice, with cool, minerally acidity and a soft, pillowy mouthfeel. It's moreish, it's seductive, it's absolutely lovely to drink.

A very fine Pinot Gris, up there with the best you will find from anywhere in the country.

About Pooley

Pooley is one of the leading family-owned wineries in Tasmania, renowned for their exquisite Single Vineyard examples of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Coal River region, less than an hour north of Hobart.

The family vineyard was planted in 1985 by Margaret and Denis Pooley. Today it is in the hands of the third generation of Pooleys, with award-winning winemaker Anna Pooley heading up the cellar and her brother Matt as viticulturalist. They make a killer team and the family business is going from strength to strength.

Anna's wines are pure, refined and eminently cellar-worthy. A class-act producer setting a cracking pace for all of Tasmania to follow.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Butcher's Hill Vineyard, Richmond, Coal River Valley; 10% fermented on skins; matured 6 months in old French oak puncheons. Proper grigio and my favourite this year. Tense, crunchy, determined. A native Tasmanian. Windswept mettle. Precise, signature, spicy pear, both ripe and crunchy. Wild lemon tension. Coal River acidity and skin phenolics embrace triumphantly on a bracing and lingering finish. Rare endurance." - Tyson Stelzer (Halliday Wine Companion)

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 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.

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).
