2021 Bink Wines Crossroads Chardonnay

Barossa Valley, SA

Flinty Barossa Chardonnay with citrus, pear and a saline finish.


Very proud of this.

Koen Janssens, Winemaker

About The Wine

This a fine example of Barossa Chardonnay, the region’s inherent warmth doing nothing to hamper the wine's freshness and nerve.

A flinty style with a lively saline finish to the bright fruit. Some clever use of barrels during ferment lends a savoury edge and some great texture.

It’s a wine that Koen is very proud of, and rightfully so.

About Bink

Koen Janssens is one half of the crazy duo that creates the flamboyant Yetti and the Kokonut wines (he’s Kokonut).

With Yetti, Koen experiments with white and orange winemaking, with his own label Bink, he takes a broader approach.

Starting his journey in wine as a sommelier, it was a stint at Quay in Sydney that made him realise his calling was making, not selling wine.

Moving to SA, Koen learned from some great people including James Erskine, Anton Von Klopper, and Pete Schell, before setting forth on his own path with YatK, and then Bink.

From The Producer

100% Barossa Valley - Southern part... Picked mid February, whole bunch pressed to seasoned puncheons. Gave it a couple of lees stirs during it's barrel time. Very happy how this came out. Just a little ripper, citrus nose, white flowers and soft touch pear. Crunchy mouth with salinity and minerality like there's no tomorrow.

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.

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).
