About

About the Wine

We firmly believe that there is no one out there who 'hates' Chardonnay. They simply haven't had the right one. This would be, for a lot of people, the 'right one.' It sits in that magical Goldilocks zone - neither too heavy nor too light, not too acidic and not too creamy.

Coming specifically from Lenswood, you can expect a great marriage of warm climate flavours and cool climate indicators. There is grapefruit and white peach throughout, with a soft creaminess balanced by mouth watering acidity. Roasted oats, vanilla and almond meal make for some deep complexity, too. This is absolutely a wine which will win you over. And your friends, too, if you're in a sharing mood.

About Bande Apart

Jess & Jamie are Bande Apart.

This exciting new project is their chance to step out away from their day jobs in Coonawarra and Mildura respectively and play with a few small batches of fruit that they want to drink.

The fruit they work with comes from the King Valley and the Adelaide Hills. Inspired by a shared vintage in Burgundy, they have sort out Gamay & Pinot Meunier for reds and Chardonnay & Aligote for whites and are making them in a fresh, smashable style.

They only make 2-4 barrels of each wine so stocks are limited.

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).
