Description

The collaboration between the D'Anna family, Sam Middleton and AFL Legend Jordan Lewis takes on a second wing here with the addition of a Upper Yarra Valley Pinot Noir to the range.

Clearly, the D'Annas and Sam know their way around Yarra Valley Pinot. With some top quality fruit from one of the top vineyards and growers in the upper reaches of the Yarra, this was an almost guaranteed smash hit from the outset.

It's fine-boned, floral and gorgeous to drink from the outset. Enjoy it now or in a decade's time.

95 Points
"The result is an approachable and appealing drink with a focus on elegance thanks to its silky tannins, fine acidity interspersed with cherry accents, woodsy spices and a sprinkle of dried herbs. Lighter framed and almost delicate, yet this is detailed and compelling."
- Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

The fruit for our Yarra Valley iteration continues to be sourced from a very well renowned upper Yarra Valley vineyard that we are proud to have many years of experience working with. This wine when compared with its Mornington counterpart, could be considered the slightly more shy, more edgy wine of the two. It requires time in the glass to unfurl, but when given the chance the 2022 displays all the hallmarks of this outstanding vineyard from an exceptional vintage. The nose displays sweeter red fruits, namely stewed strawberries, cranberries, cinnamon spice and a hint of creamy French oak. The palate is crunchy, red fruited with a silky fresh finish of impressive length. The extremely fine bead of tannin that runs through this wine offers length and drive to the finish. Sam Middelton

93 Points - "Red fruits, cinnamon, almond, some spice, mint and tobacco. Medium-bodied, sappy and savoury, peach and strawberry, a certain juiciness to it, fine grained tannin with some orange peel on a finish of good length. It’s maybe a bit squishy, but has no shortage of charm. Good wine all up." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

95 points - "A collaboration between three friends as in ex-football player and wine lover Jordan Lewis with winemakers Franco D’Anna from Hoddles Creek and Sam Middleton of Mount Mary fame. Decent provenance there. Also in the fruit source, off Lone Star Creek vineyard, all handled gently – fruit destemmed yet left as whole berries with no crushing, a long ferment in 3000L wood fermenters then pressed to French oak barriques, only 15% new, for aging. The result is an approachable and appealing drink with a focus on elegance thanks to its silky tannins, fine acidity interspersed with cherry accents, woodsy spices and a sprinkle of dried herbs. Lighter framed and almost delicate, yet this is detailed and compelling." - Jane Falkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

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.
