About The Wine

With such great vineyard holdings in some of the most prized locations of Margaret River, the Woodlands team invariably turns out very strong Chardonnay offerings, and the Wilyabrup Valley Chardonnay is the perfect introduction to their house style.

It balances the glistening golden fruit and richness of the region with an element of freshness and some leesy complexity brought on through clever winemaking.

This wine is such great value - it's a mouth-filling, opulent Chardonnay from a benchmark Margaret River producer which you can take home for under $30 a bottle. What's not to love?

Additional Info

From The Producer

The nose is complex – hinting orchard fruits of quince, pear, and white peach, notes of tropical pineapple, and barrel ferment ‘struck flint’. The palate displays the orchard fruits promised by the nose, and has a generous depth of fruit flavour.

The finish is long and fine, with a lovely ‘wet stones’ minerality. Bright, elegant and complex - A classic in every sense of the word. This wine will be best enjoyed from 2026 to 2029."

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
Drink Until : 2024

The Wine Front

Not usually a huge fan of this wine, but 2019 has turned out a very nice wine. Pineapple, pear, some grapefruit, a little vanilla and flint. It’s ample in flavour, a little bit creamy too, but has cool acidity and zesty character, some savoury cheesy things, and a pretty long juicy finish. Should improve with a year or two under its belt. - Gary Walsh

The Real Review

This is the little sister to Chloe, Woodlands’ flagship estate-grown chardonnay. It is remarkably complex and charming for such a modestly priced Margaret River chardy, with creamy lees and refined fruit aromas. Oak is almost invisible. Intense and elegant in the mouth, it has a lip-smacking savoury finish. A totally delicious wine at a great price. (Screwcap) - Huon Hooke

Great value WA Chardonnay

If you like a bit more weight to your Chardonnay than the new leaner styles, this is a excellent mid week drinking Chardonnay.

Woodlands Chatdonnay

Fatter than you’d expect from a MR Chardonnay - didn’t quite have the minerality but still tasty!

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. 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: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
