About The Wine

Tom Carson's Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Chardonnay is one of the most bankable white wines in the region.

Carson looks to produce a "chardonnay of great purity, reflecting our site and the season in which it was grown." Everthing is judged just so.

The new oak influence is kept to a subtle framework, the juice is prevented from going through malolactic fermentation to maintian the crystal-clear acid line that is ever present in Yabby Lake Chardonnay.

It's always one of the best examples of Chardonnay on the Peninsula. This vintage is no exception.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Our philosophy is to craft a chardonnay of great purity, reflecting our site and the season in which it was grown. It’s the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing that expression.

Each parcel of chardonnay was carefully handpicked between 26 February - 2 March, in pristine condition. Every parcel was handled separately in the winery, with minimal intervention. The chardonnay was whole bunch pressed and transferred with solids, into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons (20% new) to undergo natural fermentation. It was then left to mature on lees for 11 months, without malolactic fermentation proceeding until bottling in late January 2019.

"Various clones from different blocks, hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, cloudy juice into French puncheons (20% new), matured for 11 months. This has elegance as well as generous proportions, every input of fruit and oak made to measure." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
