Description

Sam Coverdale is living his dream. Farming a little patch of Mornington Peninsula and making wines that he loves to drink. The more care he has taken in the vineyard, the better the wines have become. The proof really is in the pudding.

This Pinot Noir, a blend of fruit from selected blocks on his estate, is one of his slickest releases. It's made with a gentle touch, a little carbonic maceration to bring out the red fruit and perfume, but with some gravelly base notes to off-set the prettiness.

It's a bold and plush style of Pinot Noir which deserves a big glass and plenty of air.

Perfumed, lifted and concentrated there is macerated cherries, wood spice and earthly plum and beetroot notes. The palate is complex and elegant. Very balanced with everything from fruit, tannin and acid in perfect harmony. There is a textural and mineral edge to the wine, however, fruit showing on the nose will only evolve with time and show more on the palate with time in the bottle. Possibly the best release of this wine to date.
The fruit is handpicked across multiple vineyards & blocks, and destemmed into 2 ton open fermenters as whole berries and left to start fermenting naturally. It is not touched until a 2-3° drop in baumé, which allows fermentation to occur inside the grape berry to increase the aromatics of the finished wine. Once fermentation starts strongly then the ferment is hand-plunged 2-3 times per day for 15 days. The wine is left on skins for post ferment maturation for another 15 days. It is than pressed off skins and racked to barrel. 10 % new oak across d’Aquittaine and Sirugue extra tight grain light toast. In spring the wine is racked and returned to barrel. After a total of 12 months barrel maturation the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

    The best Mornington peninsula wine out there (and that’s a big call). Absolutely delicious wine, with a dry and full bodied taste. Definitely a crowd pleaser.

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.
