About
The palate is clean and tangy with good depth and carry, finishing long and fine.

About The Wine

In 1998, David Kilpatrick began planting Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on a small plot just outside Hobart with a view to make top-flight cool climate wines.

Now, over 20 years later and the wines are truly fulfilling their promise.

This Chardonnay is very good value in the context of Tasmanian wine. It was made by Anna Pooley, who has turned out some of the most highly rated Chardonnays in the country of late under her family label. 

It's a great buy if you are chasing a modern example of cool-climate Chardonnay. You can buy with confidence.

About Clarence House

Bought and planted by Dr David Kilpatrick in 1998, the Clarence House vineyard is made up of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc, Tempranillo, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

While he is very hands on, and involved in the day to day of the property, he entrusts the vineyard management, and winemaking to professionals.

Mark Hoey, a generational grape-grower looks after the vineyards, and uses his expertise in organic and biodynamic farming to nurture the vines without the use of chemical sprays or synthetic materials.

In the winery, regional superstars Anna Pooley & Justin Bubb, guide the fruit to bottle, providing their award winning expertise to their neighbour and friend David.

The Real Review

"Bright, green-tinged lemon-yellow colour. The nicely restrained but complex nose is reminiscent of citrus, green melon, a little cashew and oak, with a touch of struck-match. The palate is clean and tangy with good depth and carry, finishing long and fine." - Ralph Kyte-Powell (The Real Review)

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).
