broad and sloshy but comes with great appeal. Drink this one not so cold. Roll with its exotica. I am in.

About The Wine

In the same vein as the other wines in the Harem series, Madame Chard is about good, honest, fun drinking. Mills' aim was to craft "a Chardonnay that tastes like Chardonnay - not bloody sauvignon blanc!" and he's nailed the MO.

This is a richer, toastier style of Yarra Chardonnay with plenty of texture and chew.

The perfect all-rounder Chardonnay from a great producer and a steal at the price.

About Jamsheed

Gary Mills' Jamsheed wines are amongst the most exciting in the country: thrilling, authentic wines packed with personality. Campbell Mattinson labelled him “a leading producer”, while Jamie Goode called him “the new face of Australian wine”.

With a specific focus on the regional differences in Victorian Syrah, Gary has been ahead of the curve in creating minimal intervention wines that naturally convey the characteristics of their respective vineyards.

On top of his much sought-after Syrahs, Gary produces excellent textural white wines from varieties including Riesling and Roussanne, and is never afraid to innovate with his quirky and delicious Pet Nats, and 'Harem' and 'Park' labels. 

Wild, electric and a little left of centre, Jamsheed is one of the Victoria’s most compelling producers.

The Wine Front

"Chardonnay from the quixotic mind of Gary Mills, a pioneer in Aus of alt-wines of course, lest us not forget this. Good/interesting style here.  Warm chicken stock scents, herbal notes, fino sherry, ripe citrus. Squirts across the palate on saline minerally notes, has the aldehydic lift of vin jaune, but not to the same extent, just there. Ripe apples, ripe citrus again, broad and sloshy but comes with great appeal. Drink this one not so cold. Roll with its exotica. I am in." - 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 1300 668 385 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).
