About The Wine

The Silkmans' take on everyday drinking Chardonnay is a characteristically classy affair. Balance, pure fruit, and a gentle but clever use of oak make this wine a winner, especially at this price point.

While definitely a mid-weight Chardonnay, the palate is still wonderfully rich and elegant, with a long finish that defies its price tag. Expect ripe citrus, melon, and a touch of spice, perfect for weeknight drinking.

About Silkman Wines

Liz and Shaun Silkman run a tight ship in the Hunter Valley.

Since their debut Silkman vintage in 2013, they have made some of the most awarded wines in their region through focusing their efforts on smart, modern winemaking guided by premium fruit.

The range is small yet high class across the board.

Without a doubt one of the future icons of the Hunter Valley.

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"An utterly gorgeous wine that charms you in an instant. Perfectly-poised lemony fruit with hints of cream, nuts, toast and oatmeal. Although all these elements are present if you look closely enough, the wine presents with a harmonious character that is enticing and engaging. The palate has fabulous energy, depth and length...all the hallmarks of a fine wine. At this price, it is an absolute steal. Highly recommended". - Toni Paterson (The Real Review)

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 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.
