About

About The Wine

Here's a delicate and flowery Pinot Noir from the Basket Range, that also shows some concentration and density.

Fruit picked nice and early by Jasper Button, wild ferment, old oak - gently, gently all the way to bottle.

It's a soft wine with lovely purity and prettiness, but with a dash of serious pinosity. One thing we know for sure about Commune of Buttons is they make a damn fine Pinot.

Yum, and double yum.

About Commune of Buttons

Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home a few years ago to help save their family vineyard, planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay 20 years ago by their mother.

They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic principles, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking.

Just a couple vintages in, the results have been fantastic. The wines are made naturally with only minimal sulphur additions and slow, gentle ferments. The Buttons' wines are as loveable as the family who made them.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Basket Town Red is from the villages of Summertown (Cemetery Block vineyard, Jenny and Jaime Griggs), Basket Range (Estate vineyard) and Piccadilly (Eurilla vineyard, Alan Dean). The Basket Town red reflects the vintage each year with the intention of blending the parcels to show the subtle complexity of red fruits and acid structure freshness that makes Piccadilly Valley pinot so attractive when handled with care.

The grapes were harvested in late March, but a cooler ripening season meant that the potential alcohol was low although the phenolic ripeness and acidity were excellent. At harvest the fruit was chilled then destemmed with between 10% and 50% whole bunches used depending on the parcel. The ferments were pressed at around 10 days with the wine settled in tank and allowed to pass through malo- lactic fermentations. The elevage was for 6 months in barriques and hogsheads on fine lees. The parcels were blended and aged for a further 4 months in stainless steel.

The wine is pretty and red fruited, distinctively pinot with cherries and savoury characters – very pleasant.

FaQs

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com 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).
