About The Pack

Australian Chardonnay has come a long way over the last decade. From overly oaked caricatures to fine, balanced wines of elegance, it's been a huge turn around.

Here are six scintillating Chardonnays that showcase the excellent quality and value on offer today in Aussie Chardonnay.

It's the perfect way to explore a wide array of styles from some excellent producers.

2018 Tonic Wines Chardonnay

Few wineries enjoy the feverish scramble for their new releases like Tonic Wines. And the fever is well deserved.

They make painfully small batches of wine and with the excellent quality and value over the last few vintages, it's no surprise.

This Chardonnay is sourced from the Bowe-Lees vineyard in Woodside, Adelaide Hills. The 2018 vintage spent 24 hours on its skins before being basket pressed to barrel where it lay untouched, unstirred on lees for around 9 months. No malo.

Simple yet incredibly successful winemaking. With only a small allocation available, this may be your last chance to try this fascinating take on Chardonnay. Don't hesitate.

2019 Ben Haines Chardonnay

When you think of Ben Haines' wines, words like "elegant" and "balanced" immediately spring to mind.

The fruit for his Chardonnay comes from two Yarra Valley vineyards - one in Upper Yarra and one in Coldstream, and while Ben might claim the "Winemaking is simple as I have great vineyards", that belies the work that goes into such an affordable Yarra wine.

This is another faultless Chardonnay from this exceptionally talented winemaking star.

2019 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Chardonnay

Value hunters - back up the truck. Barney Flanders has outdone himself this year with the release of his 2019 Le Stagiaire Chardonnay.

By keeping his range small and focused on the varieties and vineyards he loves, the quality and value of his wines has gone through the roof. The 2019 vintage in his home of Mornington Peninsula has produced a beautiful Chardonnay with lovely flesh and texture as a young wine.

It is unencumbered by clunky oak, the fruit supported by eight months on lees, a wonderful lesson in 'less is more' winemaking.

There is never a lot of this wine around and given the value on offer, it's no wonder.

2019 Two Tonne Tasmania TMV Chardonnay

The TMV Chardonnay from young Ricky Evans is a wine designed to tell the story of the vintage through the lens of the Tamar Valley

This wine is made from two different parcels of fruit from Ricky's fledgeling vineyard. It's a classic, generous expression of Chardonnay from the region. This is only the first release and it's very promising.

Ricky has made quite a lot of Chardonnay during his previous life at a bigger Tasmanian-based wine company, here is his chance to make the style of Chrdonnay that he wants to drink.

It's excellent value - you'll need to look long and hard for a better priced Chardonnay of this quality from the Apple Isle.

2018 Si Vintners Bella Chardonnay

Bella is a brilliant modern expression of Chardonnay from Margaret River.

Organically grown and made by the hands Iwo and Sarah, this takes the power of Margaret River Chardonnay and tucks it into a finer frame. It's made with next to no tinkering in the winery, the fruit left to ferment in varying vessels and hang out on gross lees for a period to pick up extra texture and palate weight.

Mike Bennie scored this new release 96 points and noted that while it's a finer-boned expression of Chardonnay from this part of the world, it's an exceptional one.

2017 Gilbert Chardonnay

Will Gilbert is a name to watch in NSW wine.

Having grown up in and around his father's winery, Will has NSW wine pumping through his veins. His modern approach to winemaking is drawing plenty of fresh attention toward his family label. Watch this space.

His focused expression of Chardonnay from Orange captures all the freshness and tension that you want to see in Chardonnay from cooler climates.

He uses ceramic eggs to excellent effect, highlighting the textural elements of the variety without excessive oak clouding the character of the wine.

It's fresh, lively, and very easy to drink.

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?

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).
