About The Wine

If Yarra Valley Chardonnay is your thing, then there needs to place in your cellar for Serrat.

It's grown and made by Tom Carson, the winemaker at the helm of Yabby Lake, one of Mornington Peninsula's flagship producers, and his wife, Nadège.

The vines that create this wine were planted in 2007. With over a decade in the ground now, the true character of this much talked-about site is truly coming to the fore. The warmer 2019 vintage has resulted in a richer, perhaps more approachable in its youth style, but all the hallmarks of top class Yarra Chardy are there.

Just a handful of bottles available, one to grab while you can!

Additional Info

From The Producer

This wine is 100% from the Mendoza block of Chardonnay, which was planted in 2007.

Barrel fermented with full solids in a single new 600L and the remaining in 500 Litre French oak puncheons and aged on lees for 11 months. Only addition to this wine is SO2. 20% new Oak.

The 2019 is loaded with stone fruits, rock melon, grapefruit and citrus notes. There is an under lying thread of complexity from the natural ferment, full use of solids and barrel fermentation, that will continue to come to the fore as the wine ages. The 2019 is remarkable tightly focused for a warmer than average vintage, it is mineral and coiled and has great concentration, it will keep for a very long time and continue to develop and build in texture as it ages.

Halliday Wine Companion

"100% Mendoza clone, hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented in French oak (20% new), matured for 11 months. Very tight, intense and bound up. However, the balance is faultless, and the future of the wine is written in 24-carat gold." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

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).
