Pinot Noir has a wide range of iterations, from deeply savoury and earthy wines to bright, fleshy and pure juicy ones. The Combes Moonah was 100% destemmed, so there isn't a lot of savoury tannin here. This this is all about the fruit, and it powers through and through.

Coming from a cold climate, there is some depth and darkness to this. While the fruit is pure and unrestrained, don't think for a second that it's a jubilant wine. Instead, it's a brooding elixir of mulberries, plums and ripe cherries. If you've ever felt that Pinot Noir was a bit too light for you, and needed a bit more body, this is a wine which will get you where you want to go.

Today, following a move in 2020, Combes Wines crafts its wares on a 14-acre site in St Andrews. It's a soulful spot nestled on the western fringe of the Yarra Valley. And it’s lovingly farmed together with Rhen Dodd of Ephemera. Planted in 1995, atop duplex and clay soils, to Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyard is sensitively nurtured throughout the year, and organic practices are slowly being introduced.

90 Points - "This is a richer pinot, deep and dark cherry fruited, plummy, has quite a lot of warm brown spice to it and licks of kirsch with rhubarb finishing the wine, strongly. Decent pinot noir in the Mornington sunshine in glass mode, albeit feels a little gluggy too. You’d go here, and a chill would help. Satisfying for those who want a little extra plushness from pinot, no doubt." Mike Bennie

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.
