About The Wine

If you look at the slew of incredible reviews around this small Yarra Valley producer, one word pops up in almost every single one. Value.

From their elite 1er and Hoddles Creek Estate labels through to their Wickhams Road range, not an ounce of quality is compromised at any tier. For the money, all the wines punch well and truly above their weight.

Their Wickhams Road Yarra Valley Chardonnay is a beautiful example of what they are about. Clean, elegant and precise wines that make people ask, "How much did you pay for this?!"

This is consistently one of the country's most excellent Chardonnays in its price range and this year is no different.

About Hoddles Creek Estate

Hoddles Creek lay a serious claim to being one of the best value producers in Australia.

Led by the extremely hardworking winemaking guru Franco D’Anna, the Hoddles team craft wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular that seriously overdeliver at all price-points.

The wines are all made from fruit grown on their family vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley.

A must try for Yarra Valley fans and bargain hunters alike!

Additional Info

From The Producer

Made with the same exacting standards as our own estate grown Chardonnay, this Wickhams Rd Chardonnay is foward, lively and balanced. Sourced from vineyards in Upper Yarra, namely Maccesfield and Woori Yallock. The Woori Yallock component gives some mid palate weight, whilst the Maccesfield provides finesse and the long acid drive.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
ABV : 13.00%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2023
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Lemons, white peach, some gloss of oak and good balance with a kick of tart citrus in the back.Lots of potential. More open and approachable than usual, but that's the 2018 vintage for you. Crisp and flavourful on the palate, the finish is long and balanced. Good buying here. - Different Drop Wine Team

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).
