The Medhurst Estate Chardonnay comes from the middle and top parts of the Chardonnay vineyard, where the soil is shallow and full of gravel and the vines are low yielding.

The fruit for the Estate Chardonnay gets stellar treatment, with the juice fermented in oak barrels (one-third new) with full solids, to add texture and richness. Like with the entry-level Chardonnay, around one-third of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation.

If you're a fan of Yarra Valley Chardonnay (and who isn't?), the Medhurst Estate Chardonnay will tick all the required boxes. Grapefruit, peach, cashes and spice aromas lead to more peach and citrus flavours, coupled with high acids and well-integrated oak.

Brilliant pale straw, some luminescent greens. The nose is highly complex with subtle hints of grapefruit, white peach, cashews and spice. The palate is poised, full of purpose, charming balance of flint and fine creaminess. The earth derived pithiness is wrapped in powerful white peach fruit again and framed with mouth watering natural acids. Complexing very tight grain oak is in the background and ensures the structure and integrity of the wine is in place for at least 8-10 years in bottle.

96 Points - "Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented and matured in French oak (30% new) for 10 months. An elegant chardonnay, well balanced and long in true Yarra Valley style. While there is an element of restraint, white peach, nectarine and grapefruit are seamlessly united and incorporate cashew/toasted almond complexity." - James Halliday (Wine Companion)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
