About The Wine

It's all about bang for your buck with the Graffiti Chardonnay, and it's as rare as a hornless unicorn in Margaret River.

A single vineyard wine out of Wilyabrup, the whole bunches see wild yeast fermentation before ageing in French oak for a few months, coming out with some creamy malolactic elements.

Crisper and more immediately approachable than the Hutton Triptych or Reserve wines, but there is plenty of sleek quality here, with a rich citrus and stonefruit core. Delish.

About Hutton Wines

Michael Hutton was a mere six years old when his parents planted a vineyard on their cattle farm in Margaret River in 1975. If only all our parents had such foresight - they continue to own Gralyn Estate.

Michael returned to the area in 2005 and made his first wines under the new Hutton Wines label, just two barrels of Cabernet.

He continues with excellent Cabernet to this day, and, staying true to the Margaret River classic varieties, only works with one other grape, Chardonnay. And classic examples they are, from the entry level Graffiti range, through to his Triptych and Reserve wines.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Fruit for the Graffiti Chardy was sourced from the Wildberry Springs vineyard in Wilyabrup. The Gin Gin and clone 3 and 5 grapes were hand picked, chilled overnight, then gently whole-bunch pressed. The free run juice and light pressings were fermented naturally with wild yeasts in older French barriques and partial malolactic fermentation was encouraged. The wine was matured for 8 months in barrel with minimal battonage. 121 cases were produced.

"Lime and grapefruit, honey, vanilla and aniseed. It’s slightly green tasting, but also a bit soft and creamy, with honey and citrus, some juicy tang, and a finish of solid length. Pretty good. Easy to enjoy." - Gary Walsh (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 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).
