About

About The Wine

A satisfying rendition of Yarra Valley Chardonnay from the second generation Rivar Ferguson-Mayer.

This is an elegant, quiet Chardonnay from a property formerly owned and managed by Bress. It's made with little tinkering - as with all the Bloody Hill wines, it's about capturing freshness and easy drinking appeal as a young wine.

It's cool, fleshy witha crisp, clean finish. A typical modern expression of the Yarra Valley from a young winemaker on the come up.

About Timo Mayer

German-born, enigmatic winemaker Timo Mayer is one of the great characters of the Yarra Valley. The words bombastic, charismatic and wild are as much applicable to the man as his wines.

From his close-planted Yarra Valley vineyard, evocatively named 'Bloody Hill', Timo carves out some astounding wines made with low levels of new oak and minimal additions. 

The signature of Timo's winemaking style is his penchant for whole-bunch ferment. His wines have an ethereal quality, firm tannins and impeccable structure. 

These are compelling and extremely limited wines that tell a unique story of the Yarra Valley.

From The Producer

Stoney & tight with white peach and Lime zest on the nose.Direct and saline on the palate with ripe white peach and sweet citrus fruit. Tightens up on the finish with clean acidity and very good length. A beautiful and pristine Chardonnay for summer. From the Northwest in the Yarra Valley, the fruit here is from an old Bress Vineyard.

The Wine Front

"Fleshy textured, soft and supple, juiciness is en pointe, the finish is bright and powdery and chewy. Lighter, refreshing style albeit with some extra width and an almost diffuse, softness. Painted in water colours to an extent. Feels like it is in first gear, and good there, but missing some pieces to elevate it." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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).
