Chardonnay showing flavour, thank you.

About The Wine

Joshua Cooper shows a deft touch in his handling of cool-climate Chardonnay.

His single vineyard expressions of the variety from the Macedon Ranges and beyond are emerging as some of the most compelling of the Victorian avant-garde wine scene.

This release of Chardonnay from a certified organic site just beyond the reach of the Macedon GI is one of his most scintillating to date.

It's skeletal, laser-focused and mesmerising to drink. Josh Cooper, take a bow.

About Joshua Cooper

Joshua Cooper is the son of Nelly and Allan Cooper, the founders of the acclaimed Cobaw Ridge winery in the Macedon Ranges.

A young winemaker on the rise, Josh is working with fruit from outside the family plot to craft his own suite of low-intervention wine.

The growers he works with from across central Victoria farm with a like-minded philosophy of organic farming and sustainability.

The wines have a delicacy and unforced feel to them. Josh makes only a small amount of each wine and they are in high demand from those who want to get in early on the next generation of Cooper.

He is one to watch closely as his own style and craftsmanship continue to evolve.

The Wine Front

"A flavoursome yet relatively lean chardonnay, offers up green apple, light nougat character, prickly, saline mineral vein through it all and a flinty finish. A wine of character without being too overt, a little waxy in texture, lingering far beyond each sip. Very good chardonnay, a little more square than other Josh Cooper releases, but ain’t nothing wrong with that. The top line message can read, ‘chardonnay showing flavour, thank you’." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Up and coming Producer

An up and coming producer, citrus flavours on the nose and taste. Still young and expect it to go better with age.

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).
