Overview

Pinot Noir is well suited to the cool climate of the Great Southern. Our Pinot Noir fruit comes from the 3drops' Patterson's vineyard which was planted in 1982.

The 2017 vintage has a bouquet which is distinctly Pinot Noir with strawberry and cherry fruits. Hints of charry French oak complete the aromas.

The front palate has vibrant berry fruits, which lead into an elegant and structured palate. Savoury complexity, quality French oak and fine grain tannins combine together, resulting in a fine and long finish.

Expert Reviews

Review - "This is one of the best pinots yet from this small Great Southern producer. Its medium bodied and deceptively powerful. aromas of perfumed strawberry, nutmeg and spices. The palate is rich and supple, with light powdery tannins and excellent charry oak. the palate extends to a very long finish. Has a slightly funky character adding to the complexity on the palate. 93/100. Best drinking now to 2024." Ray Jordan, The West Australian Saturday ,1 July 2018.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

3drops began with a family farm and a vision- a vision to produce premium wines and extra virgin olive oil whilst maintaining the integrity of the land for generations to come. Southwest of Mount Barker in the heart of the acclaimed Great Southern wine region of Western Australia, vines and olive trees flourish side by side in the cool, pristine climate.

The 3drops vineyard comprises 15 fertile hectares planted with varieties of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz. Italian, Greek and Spanish varieties of olive trees thrive alongside the vines. The name 3drops was chosen to reflect the attributes of three precious liquids wine, olive oil and water, with both the vineyard and olive grove carefully irrigated from a large wetland on the property.

The melding of time honoured tradition, passion and sensibility with contemporary techniques and the latest technology, enables 3drops to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characters.
