As the name of this wine suggests, all of the fruit for this stunning wine from Owen Latta come from the original 1989 plantings of Pinot Noir on the estate.

The fruit was all destemmed into a large concrete fermenter, left to ferment with wild yeasts before being basket pressed and aged in a bunch of barriques. No adds other than a little hit of sulphur at bottling, as is the Latta way. It's a Pinot of depth and concentration; silky, bold yet bright.

He only made one barrel of this wine, meaning stocks are extremely limited. We recommend hopping in quick to secure a taste...

This cuvée is sourced from the original 1989 plantings of Pinot Noir (MV6 & Morillon Clones). Only one barrel has been kept seperate, meaning there’s only a mere 22 dozen produced of this wine produced. We always keep each individual block seperate through fermentation & élevage. Harvested on the 6/4/21, all destemmed into one open concrete 3000L fermenter, indigenous yeasts, spontaneous fermentation via our indigenous yeast, pump overs twice daily, basket pressed 19/04/2021, transferred into 228L barriques of various coopers, topped monthly, sulphur added post malo in November, racked from barrels in late march 2022 no fining or filtering, bottled on 21/10/22. A small amount of sulphur post malo & pre bottling

97 Points - "The colour is deep and bright with a strong purple rim and the bouquet is quite marked by char-oak and dark-berry/dark-cherry fruit aromas, bold and bright. The oak gives a distinct smoky, fivespice note throughout the wine, which has a lovely silky mouth-feel and a very long, sustained and seamless carry. Marvellous focus and precision in the mouth. Impressive depth and concentration. It just needs more time for the oak to mellow into the wine. So impressive!" - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

95 Points - "Elegance and grace. Poised and precise. Very good red wine from every angle, with fragrance, mineral qualities, judicious sense of seasoning of the fruit and mid-weight concentration that draws out long and spicy with each sip. Dark cherry, old spice cupboard, graphite, dried herbs, brambly berries. Delicious. And a sense of refreshment factor. What a beauty." - Mike Bennie (The Real Review)

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.

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.
