About
It’s a beautiful and most refreshing thing to drink. I love it.

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

About The Wine

Luke Lambert is one of the Yarra Valley's most talented winemakers of his generation.

His low-intervention winemaking style has been producing effortless wines over the last decade. Low-fi winemaking with quality at its heart.

Luke's Chardonnay comes from the cool, east-facing slope of the Tibooburra vineyard. It is a gorgeous reflection of the site. The 2019 season was a warm, dry harvest so you're seeing a little more flesh as a young wine, although the signature tension and drive in his Chardonnays remains.

Unfortunately there are smaller volumes than usual available for this release. It's one the finest Australian Chardonnays of the new vanguard. Act quick, it's almost sold out.

About Luke Lambert

Luke Lambert is one of the Yarra Valley's great winemaking talents.

His traditionally inspired winemaking gently draws out the unique voice of the special vineyards he sources fruit from. He focuses on cooler sites in the Yarra, looking for precise, streamlined expressions of Nebbiolo, Syrah and Chardonnay. These wines under his eponymous label are considered by many as benchmark wines in this country.

His Crudo label offers exceptional value for money. The Shiraz, Chardonnay and Rosé are built in a more generous style without compromising quality. They offer a brilliant balance of complexity and drinkability.

There is little doubt Luke will continue to produce some of the region’s most exciting wines over the coming years. He is a future icon of this Victorian region.

The Wine Front

"Subtle chamomile and honey mint perfume, white peach and lemon barley water. It’s flinty and tight, but kind of gentle too. A wine of delicacy and quiet charm, just enough flavour, cool, clean and saline, with crunch, Japanese ginger, and ripe lemon in the aftertaste. It’s a beautiful and most refreshing thing to drink. I love it." - Gary Walsh (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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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).
