About

About The Wine

Dr. Ray Nadeson is a master craftsman of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (although he also makes a mean cool climate Shiraz!). His unique wines have led the way for many other natural winemakers to follow, with technique and precision leading his low-intervention philosophical approach.

'Menage a Noir' is Ray's 'entry-level' Pinot, and as far as Pinot Noir goes it's about as good as it gets at this price. It's made from multiple parcels of fruit from various Geelong sub-regions and is designed to be simultaneously approachable and interesting.

This is another extremely user-friendly release - the move toward more fruit-forward, bright and friendly style of Pinot Noir clearly doing wonders for the label. This is the perfect wine to get familiar with this standout Geelong producer.

About Lethbridge Wines

Lethbridge is living proof that those pie-in-the-sky ideas you have with friends over a glass of wine can come true (if you are as talented and hard working as Ray Nadeson, Maree Collis and Adrian Thomas).

This operation is considered one of the leading lights in the 'natural wine' movement, being founded on the idea that great fruit should speak for itself.

The vineyards are grown with an organic philosophy and as little as possible is added to the wines through the winemaking process. The wines have a certain style to them, but most of all, the song of Geelong sings through the whole range.

They are fascinating and delicious all at once.

    Disappointing but still a fan

    I have been buying this wine for 5 yrs and the 2021 is unfortunately disappointing relative to past vintages. The 2020 was amazing and overall the quality of Pinot Noir from Lethbridge is normally excellent. I also bought the 2019 Pinot this time around and that is excellent.

    Won't put me off buying future vintages.

    Great entry level pinot, price is absurd compared to the quality you get. Something that's delicious and yet doesn't break the bank!

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 02 8376 8775 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).
