About The Wine

The alt-stylings of Sally and Tom at Bobar wines make for unique expressions of the Yarra Valley.

Their wines are made naturally, inert vessels used in maturing, the wines are free to take on their own personality and offer something 'out-of-the-box' to the drinker.

Such is the case with the Bobar Chardonnay. This has a slight twang of oxidisation which adds fino-like complexity and a nuttiness to the lively expression of Chardonnay fruit.

It's a different proposition to most of the Yarra but does offer supreme drinkability and a point of interest for those who want to explore new facets of Chardonnay from this famous region.

The Wine Front

"Straight up delicious drinking. Worth every dollar, with a sense of pedigree yet that wild edge we kind of expect from Bobar’s expressive suite of wines. This has saline top notes and nuttiness in the mix of apple juice, faint farmhouse cider notes and whiffs of brown pear and brown lime. It’s got a little traction on the palate too, a light chew akin to the grip of pear skin or similar, lending good shape and tension with each sip. Freshness is the feel here, so is the hum of savouriness. If you like chardonnay of detail and distinction, this is a good thing." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
