About The Wine

This wine is named for the Swiss term Oeil-De-Perdrix (a Rosé, or otherwise known as a Grey wine), which translates to "eye of the partridge" - an allusion to the pale bronze/pinkish colour of the wine in the glass.

This wine is inspired by the ancient field blends of the Champagne region where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were blended for a textural pinkish still wine. Except this version comes from Sanoma Country in USA.

Pinot Noir makes up 60%, Chardonnay makes up the remainder, it works beautifully in this style.

This is a powerful, textural example of Rose which has spent several years in bottle developing further complexity before release. It's excellent drinking and a unique offering from James and Megan Becker.

Handpicked from a single vineyard in Sonoma Coast. A field blend of 60% Chardonnay & 40% Pinot Noir were wholebunch pressed direct to old French barriques and co-fermented naturally. The resulting wine remained on full solids for 11 months before it was sent to bottle, unfined & unfiltered. Aged in bottle for 2.5 years before release.

Blend : Pinot Noir (60%), Chardonnay (40%)
ABV : 13.9%
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2023
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Bronzing ruby colour, looks great. Scents of vanilla, raspberry, old spice cupboard, faintest balsamic edge. Crunchy texture but sweeter, ripe-feeling fruit flavours, a creaminess through mid palate and back to crunch. Quite a good slosh of leesy-yeasty flavours, fig notes, tart, Campari-like finish. A detailed and intriguing rose, or very light red." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 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.
