About The Wine

The Harvest project is a revolutionary idea from the energiser-bunny couple that is Brendan and Laura Carter of Unico Zelo fame.

This is a unique profit-sharing co-op between the couple and their growers and the early wines they have released from the project have been spot on!

This is a Blanc de Blanc made from 100% Chardonnay. It was made in the same Charmat method used in the making of Prosecco. It's easy drinking with just the tiniest bit of sweetness to the fruit.

Great fun fizz to smash back when the sun is out and a great way to support some of our local grape growers!

About Unico Zelo

Unico Zelo is the project of winemaking couple Brendan and Laura Carter. In their words, their aim is to create “Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines” and “Australian examples of Mediterranean varieties in an approachable and jovial fashion.”

Since bursting onto the scene in 2014 with their eye-catching, outrageously good value alternative vino, the Carters have spread their wings and their range.

They now make a large suite of wines, including single vineyard examples of Fiano, Nero d'Avola and Nebbiolo.

They are one of the most dynamic winemaking duos in the Adelaide Hills.

DDS review

Lemons, apples, a little spice and a lot of freshness. It's not overly complex but it does what it sets out to do. Sweet limes and a little peachy character. It's a dead-set thirst quencher. Chill it. Pop it. Rip into it. - Different Drop Wine Team

Grown at the most exposed and elevated position in Birdwood, Northern Adelaide Hills - this fruit reaches a ripeness with a spritely acidity that lends itself incredibly well to a Sparkling style of wine - this 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs is a refreshingly dry style of sparkling wine that shows all the generosity and elegance that Chardonnay is known for, whilst giving you a clean and cut finish, driving shear drinkability.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
ABV : 12.5%
Closure : DIAM Cork
Drink Until : 2019
Bottle Size : 750ml

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).
