About This Wine

Born of a desire to showcase the unique terroirs on the Mornington, this Quartier Pinot Noir from Port Phillip Estate comes off 2 vineyards in Tuerong and Balnarring.

It’s quite a spicy MP wine, while still showcasing the classic red and black berries that the region's Pinots are known for. Medium-bodied, the wine is juicy and approachable while still offering structure and a distinct tannin profile.

A unique offering that stands apart from the classic style of the region - which is a good thing, adding an extra layer of interest.

From The Producer

The fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards in Tuerong and Balnarring. The fruit was fermented in open vats. Fermentation occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 16 to 18 days. The wine underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The maturation period was ten months in French oak barriques, puncheons (10% new), and large format foudre. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Strawberry, spice, a bit of smoke and sap. Light to medium in body, kind of smoky and sappy again, with squished strawberry, light grainy tannin, maybe slightly soapy too, with orange peel on a modest finish. Drink now. Has interest." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

The Real Review

"Medium to light ruby to brick-red colour, with a trace of purple at the rim. The bouquet is smoky, meaty charcuterie-like and quite complex, while the wine is light on its feet, mild in extract and concentration but attractively flavoured and balanced." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

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).
