About The Wine

This cool climate Chardonnay from Josh Cooper is an absolute cracker.

Gently handled, as is Josh's way, the hand-picked fruit from this old vineyard in the Macedon Ranges was gently pressed for 5 hours then sent to mostly old oak to mature for 12 months on lees. It's tightly wound, full of flavour and flush with big personality.

His Chardonnay sings of its home, the cool site on Cambrian and granite soils. It's pure Chardonnay of pure class. Great stuff from Josh.

About Joshua Cooper

Joshua Cooper is the son of Nelly and Allan Cooper, the founders of the acclaimed Cobaw Ridge winery in the Macedon Ranges.

A young winemaker on the rise, Josh is working with fruit from outside the family plot to craft his own suite of low-intervention wine. The growers he works with from across central Victoria farm with a like-minded philosophy of organic farming and sustainability.

The wines have a delicacy and unforced feel to them. Josh makes only a small amount of each wine and they are in high demand from those who want to get in early on the next generation of Cooper. He is one to watch closely as his own style and craftsmanship continue to evolve.

The Wine Front

"Lancefied vineyard, from Ben Rankin’s Wilimee vineyard, on Cambrian soil, planted 1982. Nice to see back-to-back Wilimee wines produced from chardonnay from this site, and the DNA of generosity yet freshness is writ large in this wine too.Real Lemonade scents, some floral notes, whiffs of general savouriness of oatmeal and biscuit. Ginger and lemon to taste, juicy but with a light crunch, pure-feeling and very long in flavour too. Lots of joyous feel to this wine, really delicious, moreish, with savouriness underpinning ripe citrus flavours. I wanted to get back to this wine. Oh yes." - 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 02 8376 8775 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).
