Description

The Dog & Wolf Pinot Noir is Ricky's pride and joy.

Inspired by the French expression ‘entre chien et loup’, it translates to ‘between dog and wolf’, a reference to the time of day when it is hardest to distinguish between the two creatures, just as day becomes night. He wants this Pinot Noir to walk that line. The line between wild and tame, between ferocious and approachable, raw and refined.

The wine is made in two parcels - the first picked early and made in a more traditional style, the second fermented as 100% whole bunches for a little more nervy edge and structural integrity. There's only a tiny amount in existence, each bottle lovingly tended to every step of the way.

It's a gorgeous wine which perfectly captures the imagery of the name; a thrilling Pinot Noir experience.

A combination of two parcels of fruit. The first, picked early, intense flavour, and concentration, made more in the house style, 15% whole bunch this year. The second, taken a little later, is 100% whole bunch, a wilder expression. Together these sit side by side in maturation, until being blended to find balance between power and elegance, creating 'the dog & wolf'. Production is limited to the quality of the season. Bottled without fining or filtration.

94 Points - "Warm slate, flinty whiffs over strong, dried herb and stemmy greenery characters with dark cherry and espresso in the mix. Succulent in the palate, more flinty notes to taste, strong minerally character with chewy, ultra fine tannins, dark cherry, hazelnut notes and a spicy, flinty finish. Reduction done well but extensively here. Complex, fine boned wine." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Great wine, but one to put away for a few years

    This is a great wine, but still very primary. Will show at its best in a few years.

Woodlawn Tasmania

Woodlawn Tasmania is the umbrella under which Ricky Evans' three wine labels coalesce.

His three labels include the regional Two Tonne Tasmania series of Tamar Valley Riesling, Chardonnay and sub-regional Pinot Noirs, the experimental series of wines under the Havilah label made for his wine bar in Launceston of the same name and his Single Vineyard range of exceptional premium wines from his beloved Tamar Valley vineyards farmed by Ricky himself.

Evans is one of Tasmania's most dynamic winemakers. Over his time since serendipitously starting the Two Tonne Tasmania label in 2013, Ricky's approach to both farming grapes and making wine has matured dramatically. The young gun is now an established player in the upper echelon of the island and is set to be one of Tasmania's most influential voices in wine for many years to come.

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.
