About The Pack

If you are a fan of New Zealand Pinot Noir, you simply won't find a better collection anywhere on the internet.

This is a curated selection of the most iconic Pinot Noirs in New Zealand.

It covers the biggest names from the major regions, all designed to blow your mind.

Any number of these would not be out of place in a Best New World Pinot Noir tasting. It's a tour de force of New Zealand's finest and it comes with a tidy discount. It's the perfect gift for a connoisseur.

2018 Rippon Jeunesse Pinot Noir

The Jeunesse Pinot Noir comes from the less established vines on Rippon vineyard.

Owner/winemaker Nick Mills sees this as a more youthful expression of his family site. It's a brighter, more ethereal style of Pinot Noir as opposed to the older vine wines that have a great level of depth and gravitas.

Don't mistake that for a drop in quality, this is a gorgeous wine, one that many estates would love to have as their flagship, it's just a more adolescent voice of this great New Zealand vineyard.

2019 Luna Estate Eclipse Pinot Noir

"Delicate, almost ethereal pinot noir with floral, violet, red cherry, spicy oak and a hint of mineral flavours."
NZ Wine of The Week (The Real Review, 8 Sept 2021)


The Eclipse Vineyard Pinot from Luna Estate is among the finest Martinborough Pinots you may not have come across. The vineyard sits of the gravel-dominant soils of the Martinborough Terrace and produces a wine of depth, structure and intense stony minerality.

Some whole bunch inclusions and some new French oak maturation add gravitas to the beautifully poised violet and red plum fruit. Savoury herbal and spicy notes also in the mix.

A memorable, toned and approachable Pinot that really caught our eye.

No winery additions apart from a touch of sulphur.

2016 The Elder Pinot Noir

After finding their dream patch of land overlooking Martinborough’s Te Muna Valley in 1996, Mike and Margaret Hanson intended to plant olive trees on their little patch of paradise.

A friend and neighbour, Bill Brink, told them they'd be mad to not plant grapes. Happily, they followed his advise. With the help and guidance of Martinborough Vineyard's viticulturalist, Nigel Elder, they now are owners of one of the great Pinot producing vineyards in the region.

This picturesque vineyard imbues incredible density in the fruit which creates powerful, persistent Pinot Noir that is polished and effortless.

This is a standout Pinot Noir for the Martinborough region. Ideal for the cellar yet supple enough to be enjoyed on release.

2018 Prophet's Rock Home Vineyard Pinot Noir

The Home Block Pinot Noir burst onto the NZ wine scene when its first release, the 2005 vintage, was named in Bob Campbell's top 10 Pinot Noirs in Central Otago.

Since then it has been one of the most consistently highly rated Pinot Noirs in the region.

The Home Block Pinot vines yield intense fruit, winemaker Paul Pujol mustering all he has learnt from his time at noted Oregon producer Rex Hill and in Chambolle-Musigny, Burgundy, to harness the power of his site.

It's an Old-World-Meets-New-World style of Pinot Noir. Structured, savoury and a killer in the cellar.

2019 Novum Pinot Noir

What a lovely elegant expression of NZ Pinot from Novum, the new(ish) guys on the Marlborough block.

Will and Rachel, the Novum winemaking duo, have selected parcels from two cool vineyard sites in the Southern Valleys to create a linear, refined wine that has great deftness and length.

The nose is all bright cherry and pomegranate, with a hint of earthiness. In the mouth there is a pure line of supple fruit with a savoury edge. We're guessing some truffly, autumnal flavours will develop with time - can't wait to try this in a few years.

A Marlborough Pinot of delicate class.

2018 Chard Farm Tiger Pinot Noir

The Tiger is not very tigerish; more of a bunny rabbit with well-groomed fur if truth be told.

This bunny rabbit is delicious though, a velvety, light-framed, beautifully detailed Otago Pinot Noir, with fruit coming from the cool slopes of the Tiger vineyard in Lowburn.

Though it would respond well to time in the cellar, we loved this subtle refined style at an early age.

Joint top scorer in the Gourmet Traveller Wine South Island Pinot tasting in June 2021.

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 1300 668 385 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).
