2021 Great Southern Pinot Noir
Our current 2021 vintage has sold out online. However there is stock of 2021 vintage available in retail, so please ask at your favourite speciality wine store. The new 3drops Pinot Noir 2022 will be available mid-February 2023.
Light red in color, 3drops 2021 Great Southern Pinot Noir has an elegant nose of wild strawberries, red currants, and an underlying hint of savouriness.
On the palate, it's elegant but succulent with a fine tannin structure, smooth and creamy texture, and a lively spiciness on the finish. The high-quality French oak is in the background and integrates beautifully with the fine tannin structure.
Ready to drink now, or you can cellar it over the next 8-10 years to further develop the typical earthy flavours which are a characteristic of Pinot Noir.
If wining and dining, we'd recommend matching our Pinot with grilled salmon, braised duck or an afternoon of cheese, charcuterie, and good company.
At checkout a 10% discount will be applied to a 12 bottle order of this wine.

"Serious and playful at once. Overt, lush, deep, dark, red fruits in abundance. Ripe, wild strawberries with subtle cedar and toast from time in oak. What sets this apart is a seamlessness on the palate. Everything in its place. Resolved delicate tannins, sit lightly amongst raspberry, spice and field mushroom. A young wine but ready to drink. Why wait?"

"Take in the first sniff of fresh strawberries and you know immediately you are in a heady zone. This is a mighty impressive pinot. The combination of spicy red fruits and an ever so subtle truffle character is most appealing. The palate has a fine persistent acidity contributing to a firm spine. Cellar 8 years"
