About
It’s complex as chardonnay gets, alluring and compelling as a drink.

About The Wine

The Macedon Ranges is home to some of the best terroir in Australia for producing cool-climate Chardonnay.

Cobaw Ridge occupies some of the best Chardonnay land in the region. The combination of old school biodynamic farming and skillful winemaking from Alan & Josh Cooper makes for a devastatingly delicious Chardonnay of a very high celibre.

It's a tightly wound, savoury style of Chardonnay with a huge amount of horsepower under the hood.

It relies on fruit concentrationa and bracing pristine acidity for its architecture rather than oak. It's a gorgeous wine from one of the hidden gem winegrower families of Victoria.

About Cobaw Ridge

Cobaw Ridge was established in 1985 by Alan and Nelly Cooper in the Macedon Ranges.

This estate is the only certified organic and biodynamic producer in the region. Alan firmly believes that great wines are made in the vineyard. The vines come first at Cobaw Ridge. They grow excellent examples of Syrah, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and Australia's most sought-after example of Lagrein.

Over the years Alan's winemaking approach has become more and more minimalist. With sulphur now the only addition in the winery and Alan using more inert vessels such as Qvevri, the Cobaw Ridge Wines have never looked better.

The Wine Front

"Always expect savoury, interesting chardonnay wines from Cobaw Ridge. Here’s another. Loading in grape flavour and its full potential. It’s a big chardonnay but not weighty, nor creamy, nor buttery and toasty. There’s just lots of things going on. It smells of honeycomb, cashews, green apple, faint sea spray, the palate with similar flavours, really juicy but with a core of minerally-saline acidity and finishes with a light fino-meets-green-apple edginess. It’s complex as chardonnay gets, alluring and compelling as a drink. It’s fantastic." - 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? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
