Description

Dog Point is one of the Marlborough region's true blue-chip wineries. An intense focus on low cropping, terroir-driven winemaking and a strict adherence to organic farming has seen them rise to the top of the pile in arguably New Zealand's most famous wine-growing region.

This premium Pinot Noir is crafted from a blend of six different clones planted on vines over 30 years old.

Hand-harvested and sorted, the fruit includes 25% whole bunches and is fermented in small stainless open-top fermenters using indigenous yeasts. After fermentation, the wine is pressed into French oak barrels (30% new) for 18 months, ensuring depth and complexity.

It exudes power and concentration, yet maintains a supple structure. The palate is succulent, featuring alluring red cherry, brown spices, and silky fine-boned tannins.

A structural yet supple wine that will evolve beautifully in the bottle over years to come.

"All the royal treatment in the four pinnacles of Dog Point’s offerings... Drinking well now but in true Dog Point style, they have their eyes on the long game and this will cellar beautifully upwards of 6 years."
- Shanteh Wale (Wine Pilot)

"Intense, appealing pinot noir with subtle floral aromas together with concentrated red berry, dark chocolate, liquorice, wood smoke and spicy oak flavours. Powerful wine with obvious cellaring potential."
- Shanteh Wale (Wine Pilot)

A bright perfumed, supple expression of Marlborough pinot noir from clay hill slopes. The fruit is supported by bright florals of rose and violets with crunchy red berry fruit and dried herb notes. The palate is succulent with alluring red cherry, brown spices and silky fine boned tannins. This wine has all the makings of a long lived Marlborough pinot noir and matches perfectly with duck, red meats (particularly venison and lamb), and mushroom dishes.

95 points - "All the royal treatment in the four pinnacles of Dog Point’s offerings. Hand harvested fruit, hand sorted with 25% whole bunches and pressed into French oak barrels of which 30% was new for a total of 18 months. Violet petals, Damson plum, black raspberry and fig topped with turned potting soil and gravel. The wine hits the base notes with coffee grinds, allspice and sandalwood. It’s equally alluring and coquettish with its underlying heady spices and wafts of wild red and black fruit. Oak supports the density of fruit and underpins its ability to transform in the glass. Tannins are tightly laced with propulsive acidity and carry. Drinking well now but in true Dog Point style, they have their eyes on the long game and this will cellar beautifully upwards of 6 years." - Shanteh Wale (Wine Pilot)

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.
