2021 Murdoch Hill Surrey Pinot Meunier

Adelaide Hills, SA

A serious expression of varietal Pinot Meunier. A great change of pace from its cousin, Pinot Noir.

About The Wine

This Pinot Meunier is grown on a small vineyard in Piccadilly Valley, that produces juicy fruits and easy-drinking wines.

The winemaking is stripped right back. The fruit is doing all the talking and we love what it was saying.

The more reds like this available in the country, the better, we say.

Get familiar with this variety, it's starting to do some wonderful things in Australia and this release is one of the most interesting getting around.

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

This wine is the backbone to our fresh spring release wines.

This rare variety is a relative of Pinot Noir. From a small vineyard, high in the Piccadilly Valley, it produces a juicy elegant, light style of red wine, displaying softness with dark red cherry through to raspberry fruits. Medium bodied persona weighted like a Pinot Noir, but with more upfront spice and fine tannin's.

Blend : Pinot Meunier (100%)

The Real Review

"Young, bright and youthful in the glass. Aromas of raspberry, charcuterie, charry oak, spice and underbrush. Fleshy and fruit-driven on the palate, strawberry, raspberry, cherry and spice. A lick of meaty spiciness, firm, chalky tannins and crunchy, bright acidity. A little unevolved and raw at this point—give it plenty of air if drinking now, or stick it away for a few years." - Aaron Brasher (The Real Review)

    Wonderful choice

    Beautiful drop. Subtle complexities, great with some cheese and crackers or on its own.

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).
