About The Wine

The Hoddles Creek 1er Chardonnay is a wine of exceptional class and intensity.

Made exclusively from fruit grown on the Hoddles Creek estate, this is one of the Yarra Valley's benchmark Chardonnays. The fruit that winemaker Franco D'Anna had to work with in 2011 was perfect for producing a more tightly wound, cellar-worthy style of Chardonnay.

After many years slumbering in the Hoddles Creek cellar, the 2011 is in a very good place right now. The palate is full but fresh, the length superb.

This is premium Chardonnay done the Yarra Valley way. Buy with supreme confidence.

About Hoddles Creek Estate

Hoddles Creek lay a serious claim to being one of the best value producers in Australia.

Led by the extremely hardworking winemaking guru Franco D’Anna, the Hoddles team craft wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular that seriously overdeliver at all price-points.

The wines are all made from fruit grown on their family vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley.

A must try for Yarra Valley fans and bargain hunters alike!

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"As well as the grapes were treated in the winery – the bigger treat is the taste of it from the glass. This is a pearl of a wine. Seductive yet elegant, immediately appealing yet complex and sophisticated. As good as winemaker Franco D’Anna is, this is clearly a remarkable site. Pear, grapefruit, citrus, woodsmoke, apple and cedar-spice. Integrated funk, but you have to go looking for it. Persistent. And apart from anything else, charming to drink." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Cracking wine

Powerful and complex, needs a bit of air to settle down and open up, but you'll be rewarded after a decant or some time open. Hoddles, as always, hits the mark.

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).
