About The Pack

As the world's most influential wine critic, Jancis Robinson MW, once said "Australian Chardonnay is so much more consistent and accessible than a White Burgundy..."

There are many that believe that Chardonnay is Australia's greatest grape. Well, here's the six pack that proves it.

The beauty of Australian Chardonnay is the diversity of style. It excels in all corners of the country. Chardonnay showcases both regionality and the thumbprint of a winemaker perhaps better than any other white grape.

This mixed pack is a tour de force of some of the greatest Chardonnays in the country right now. Six iconic wines. Six iconic producers.

It's a limited edition pack. Only 12 packs were assembled due to the limited nature of some of these wines and we can guarantee it won't be available for long.

2018 Tolpuddle Chardonnay

98 points, James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
98 points, James Suckling

The Tolpuddle Chardonnay has quickly become one of Tasmania's most sought-after Chardonnay releases.

This stunning vineyard in the south of Tasmania in the Coal River Valley is set on a continuous slope facing North-East, the ideal locale for producing top-class, premium versions of Burgundian grapes.

The Chardonnay from 2018 release is an outstanding wine from winemaker Adam Wadewitz. The fruit marginally riper than previous releases, the wine tightly wound and impeccably balanced. 

It's another special from this special vineyard.

2018 Giaconda Estate Vineyard Chardonnay

96 points, Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

The famed Giaconda Chardonnay is one of the great wines of Australia.

Grown by the iconic Rick Kinzbrunner on the hallowed slopes on the outskirts of Beechworth township, this wine has carved out a unique place for itself in Australian wine.

Notable for its extraordinary power and ageing potential, it has long been held up as a bastion of quality Australian Chardonnay to the rest of the world. It is made in limited amounts and sells out without fail each and every year. 

The 2018 is a hotly anticipated release. Allocations are extremely limited. If you want it for your cellar, you'll have to act quick.

2018 Cullen Kevin John Chardonnay

97 points, James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
96 points, Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

The Cullen Kevin John Chardonnay sits comfortably amongst the pantheon of Margaret River's finest Chardonnays.

Vanya Cullen's unrelenting quest for winemaking excellence is beautifully realised in this ode to her late father, Dr. Kevin John Cullen. The man's passion for Margaret River Chardonnay was legendary and this wine surely does him proud.

The fruit is hand picked exclusively on fruit days (the days of the biodynamic cycle which optimise fruit flavour) from the immaculate four decade old vineyard tended by the Cullen family. This is a wine of immense power and precision and stands as a constant reminder of the potential of Australian Chardonnay. The Cullen Kevin John sits at the apex of Australian Chardonnay and would make a fine addition to any serious cellar.

2018 By Farr G.C. Chardonnay

97 points, Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

A formidable wine here from a classic producer. The Farrs sum up this stunning wine best themselves:

"The GC Chardonnay (GC – Gary Charles) is attributed to all the knowledge we have been able to extract from Gary to create a close planted / high density planting of chardonnay on an exposed cote... It's a complete chardonnay."

It's a powerful Chardonnay that makes you sit back and take notice. Full of fruit and body and personality.

A brilliant wine and a rare gem, perfect either for the cellar and/or a special occasion.

2017 Tyrrell's Vat 47 Chardonnay

96 points, Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

The Vat 47 Chardonnay is the flagship Chardonnay produced by the famous Tyrrell family in the Hunter Valley.

A blend of the best old vine fruit available to the Tyrrell's winemakers, this is a powerful wine that exemplifies the rich, full-bodied style of Chardonnay that the Hunter Valley has become famous for.

This was Australia's first commercially available Chardonnay, first released in 1971. It's a wine with a reputation for uncompromising quality and has set the pace for premium Hunter Chardonnay from day dot.

A powerful, cellar-worthy wine with the softness and richness to stand toe to toe with any of Australia's top Chardonnays.

2017 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay

97 points, Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

This is arguably Australia's most iconic Chardonnay. For decades Leeuwin Art Series has been the gold standard of Australian Chardonnay, considered by many as one of the few Australian 'Grand Cru' Chardonnays that can go toe-to-toe with the best of Burgundy and beyond.

The wine is fermented and aged in 100% new French oak of the highest quality. The power and intensity of the fruit is an easy match for the new oak, invariable finding balance and even finesse where most Chardonnays would be overpowered.

The Leewin Art Series is a wine for when only the very best will do.

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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?

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).
