About

About the Wine

The cool-climate vineyards of Klein Constantia produce concentrated Chardonnay fruits full of flavour, that retain their freshness and purity throughout the winemaking process.

It has all your regular Chardonnay notes - citrus, brioche, pome fruits - but there's a certain distinctiveness about it, with an extra layer of complexity that elevates it from your average Chardy.

All fans of a crisp Chardonnay that is anything but simple drinking - this one's for you.

About Klein Constantia

The cool-climate vineyards of Klein Constantia are some of the most historic in South Africa. The land was originally part of a larger estate, until Johan Gerard Cloete took ownership of it in 1823.

They're passionate about producing wines in environmentally responsible ways and use as many organic & biodynamic principles as possible.

Committed to making terroir-driven wines with simple winemaking techniques, Klein Constantia consistently produce superbly elegant and balanced wines.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Abundant pear drop and citrus blossom, with a floral spicy note on the nose. The palate is chalky, clean and fresh with brioche aspects.

Made from a single vineyard on the lower slopes of Klein Constantia. The grapes were whole bunch pressed with the must left on the grape lees at 6C for a period of 1 week before racking off for fermentation. 30% of the juice was fermented in new 500L barrels and the remainder in stainless steel tanks, it was then transferred to neutral 500L barrels. Malolactic fermentation was avoided in order to maintain the freshness of the wine. The wine was aged for 9 months before blending and bottling.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)

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).
