About
It’s fun, it’s light on, it glides and yet there’s some concentration and slickness to the wine too.

About the Wine

Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, these three varieties get along so well.

This is a fresh wine that is geared towards fun in the sun drinking. It combines the vibrant red berry flavours of these three varieties with a touch of stalk influence to beautiful effect.

Think of the ideal red wine style to drink in the Aussie summer and you're on the right track. Pop it in the fridge if you like, it won't hurt it a bit - in fact, we reckon it's even better with a slight chill.

Slim to none oak influence; just pure, lively fruit, full of character and personality.

About Murdoch Hill

Murdoch Hill is a family-owned winery captained by talented young winemaker Michael Downer.

Downer splits the range in two: his clean-cut, consistently high-quality ‘Estate’ wines are excellent value and perpetually reliable, and his quirky, adventurous ‘Artisan’ wines which offer an alt-styling and different shades of the region.

With the combination of high-quality Adelaide Hills fruit grown on the family estate and the undoubted talent in the winery, this is a Hills producer on the up and up!

Additional Info

From the Producer

A blend made in heaven. Pinot Noir, Meunier & Gris; this wine gives bright red fruits, delicate up front fruit profile with exotic spices, vibrant acid and fine whole bunch tannin.

The Pinot Meunier gives bright red fruits with a generous up front fruit profile, the Pinot Noir provides exotic spices and a fine acid line with stalky firm tannins. While the Pinot Gris gives aromatic lift and texture to the wine. Each parcel matured in natural French barriques for 5 months before bottling with no fining or filtration, to be enjoyed young and fresh over the warmer months.

Blend : Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Gris
ABV : 13.00%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2027
Bottle Size : 750ml

"Sappy, juicy number with lots of sweet, floral cherry scents and flavours, licks of sweetness in bright sloshes of cranberry tang. It’s fun, it’s light on, it glides and yet there’s some concentration and slickness to the wine too. I’d be knocking a chill into this one. It’s good." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

    Something for everyone. The blend is beautifully balanced and will appeal to those who enjoy a quaffable, but intriguing Pinot. I’m new to pinots and this wine is a perfect introduction to the skill of Pinot makers.

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).
