About
Wines of Jura come to mind but the take home is that it is a beautiful wine in its own right.

About The Wine

Clover is a gently textural Chardonnay made from the Button's family vineyard.

It's made with 24 hours skin contact, pressed and sent to stainless tanks to go wild. This has that distinctive 'natural' feel, whilst remaining clean and fresh the whole way down. It's not your average Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, that's for sure. 

Mike Bennie wrote, "winemaker Jasper Button is most intuitive and at ease with his chardonnay wines, I feel." and that's certainy evident in this release.

But it tells a quiet story about where it's from and the people who made it. And it's just awesome to drink.

About Commune of Buttons

Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home a few years ago to help save their family vineyard, planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay 20 years ago by their mother.

They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic principles, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking.

Just a couple vintages in, the results have been fantastic. The wines are made naturally with only minimal sulphur additions and slow, gentle ferments. The Buttons wines are as loveable as the family who made them.

The Wine Front

"Lovely chardonnay comes from this site, and winemaker Jasper Button is most intuitive and at ease with his chardonnay wines, I feel. I recall seeing his ‘first work’ with the variety as the brand was coming alive, and had the character of the wines from barrel soldered into my mind.Whiffs of sea spray, lemongrass, ripe citrus, ginger. A beautiful start. The just medium weight wine feels immediately attractive, savoury edged, a white of freshness and bright personality. It also feels ‘cool’ (cold, in a way) and it’s a smooth ride in the palate, ultra fresh feeling with licks of savoury nuttiness, saline acidity, green apple crunch. There’s great length too. Wines of Jura come to mind but the take home is that it is a beautiful wine in its own right." - 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 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).
