About The Wine

Angus Vinden has spent years now analysing the Howard family's Somerset vineyard.

He says these days he knows it almost as well as his own estate grown vines. For this release, Angus offers up his best rendition of what he believes modern Hunter Valley Chardonnay should look and taste like.

It should have fruit weight and richness without being cloying, it should also have a freshness about it too.

It's a great drink. Full-flavoured yet frisky and it will delight both lover of old school and new school Chardonnay lovers alike.

About Vinden Estate

Young Angus Vinden is the owner/winemaker of this much-loved Hunter Valley winery.

Having taken the reins from his father just a few years ago, Gus is reimagining his family's wine label with a string of exciting, modern wines coming out of his cellar.

He sources fruit from some of the Hunter's greatest vineyards, focusing on Semillon and Shiraz primarily as well as turning out a very good Tempranillo.

He's one of the young guns of the Hunter Valley that should have a close eye kept on him. His wines are on the up!

Additional Info

From The Producer

Sourced from the Howard family Somerset Vineyard where I once worked; I know this vineyard almost as well as my own. The vines were planted in 1973, 1980 & 1987 over red volcanic clay and fine sandy clay loam. The fruit was Basket Pressed and juice transferred directly in oak, where the wine underwent 100% barrel fermentation in French oak, 30% new. During the 8 month èlevage, bâtonnage was conducted every two weeks. A modern Hunter ‘Chardy’, balancing fruit and minerality with texture and beautiful lees weight. Drink any time over the next 5 years.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2025
Bottle Size : 750ml

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).
