Description

Great valuef Yarra Valley Pinot Noir, without any heavy-handedness or over-oaking. This is small-batch stuff and a wine that very much over-delivers at its price point.

Crafted by Anthony Fikkers, who brings experience from top wineries and international vintages, this wine focuses on balance and purity of fruit. Sourced from high-altitude vineyards in Seville and St Andrews, plus valley floor sites in Coldstream and Dixons Creek, the diverse terroir adds complexity. The 2022 vintage, despite low yields, produced exceptional quality. With a bright ruby colour, it offers aromas of red currant, raspberry, and a hint of spice. The palate is vibrant with raspberry, strawberry, and savoury spice, balanced by bright acidity and gentle tannins.

Awarded Gold Medals and 95 points at the 2023 Yarra Valley and Victorian Wine Shows, plus 95 points in the Halliday Wine Companion, highly rated Pinot from the Yarra at this price doesn't come around very often.

“A medium, bright cherry red. An immediately attractive bouquet offering an array of spices to go with the sour cherry and raspberry fruit aromas. Even better on the energetic palate, which is medium bodied, with both bright acidity and fine-grained tannins giving the wine freshness and structure. Definitely over-delivers at this modest price point for good quality Yarra Pinot.”
- Philip Rich (Halliday Wine Companion)

“The fruit for In Dreams Pinot Noir is selected from vineyards spanning from the cool, high-altitude vineyards of Seville in the Upper Yarra and St Andrews in the far north-west of the region, complimented by fruit from Coldstream and Dixons Creek on the Valley floor. Altitudes vary from 130mabove sea level to 240m and soil types include both red volcanic loams and grey clay loams overlying mudstone. Clonal components of Abel, MV6, 114 and 115 are the building blocks of our In Dreams Pinot Noir.”

“Mainly whole berry ferment with around 10% whole bunches included for a little extra aromatic lift. On average, each batch spent around 10 days on skins with just one pump over per day to wet the cap without over-extracting. Pressed into French oak (10% new) for 10 months maturation.”

“Vintage ‘22 began with a very wet spring, followed by along, dry summer. This resulted in extremely low yields right across Victoria, but the silver lining is the fantastic quality of wines we ended up with. Great fruit density and cleansing acidity will be the hallmarks for vintage 2022.”

“Bright ruby colour with hints of purple – one of the hallmarks of the low-yielding ‘22 vintage. Juby aromas of red currant and raspberry, with a lifted, slightly peppery spice. The palate is supple and concentrated, showing more raspberry, strawberry and a savoury, spicy character. Bright, cleansing acidity brings harmony to the palate and leaves you wanting more!”

93 points - “A beautifully fragrant and expressive Pinot from this small Yarra vintage. Aromas of raspberry and red currant jelly lift with a subtle spicy oak character. On the velvety smooth palate, the fleshy fruit is cuddled with a fine chalky and slightly boney acid that supports a long finish. Love that spicy lift with the lingering acidity a feature.” - Ray Jordan (Wine Pilot)

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.
