About The Wine

The Picardy Chardonnay stands as a flagbearer for the fuller figured Chardonnays of old.

It's been a constant search for the Pannell Family to find the balance of lavish texture and restraint at Picardy, regardless of the style of Chardonnay that is in vogue at the time.

It's made to be luscious and packed with flavour, unapologetically curvaceous and impossibly moreish. If you yearn for the days when Chardonnay was ripe and creamy, the Picardy Chardonnay will take you back there in very classy fashion.

This is another great release from a much-loved WA estate.

About Picardy

Picardy is the Pemberton outpost of one of Australia's leading wine producers, the Pannell family of Moss Wood fame. Bill and Sandra Pannell started Moss Wood way back in 1969, and established Picardy in 1993. Their son Dan is now the main man on campus.

All fruit for Picardy wines are from their own extensive vineyards and the focus is on sustainably-grown classic varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The region offers ideal conditions for cool climate wine making, with moderating ocean influence, cool breezes and plenty of rainfall.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Picardy Chardonnay is made from equal portions of the four preferred clones 76, 95, 96 and 277(selected by the University of Dijon) to achieve complexity.

The Pannells are looking towards the great white wines of the old world for inspiration and look to make a Chardonnay with floral characters, citrus fruits and minerality with good structure and texture.

Excellent fruit intensity, structure, pH to acid relationship and fine-grained tannins guarantee long life and excellent bottle development. The wines are also very approachable in their early years.

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).
