About the Wine

With a name like "Chateau Acid", it's a certain bet that the guys behind it, Charlie O'Brien and Simon Jones, are fans of fresh and zippy wines with plenty of zing on your palate. They like to pick their fruit early so as to maximise the acidity, while still allowing for loads of flavour. Fruit is sourced from the Ricca Terra vineyards in the Riverland region.

With vibrant aromas and flavours of citrus, floral notes, some spice, and green apple, as well as a light mousse, this is an exquisitely refreshing wine made for pure enjoyment. Coming in at 11.4% ABV, they don't pack a huge alcoholic punch, so you could easily get through a bottle on a warm summer or autumn evening with friends.

About Chateau Acid

Long time friends Charlie O’Brien and Simon Jones kicked off Chateau Acid in 2017, looking to create a fun, yet serious wine label - the name is a playful link between the acidity required for good wine and the underground wine scene of the 80s and 90s.

Fruit for their wines is sourced from the legendary organic and biodynamic vineyards at Rosnay Estate in Canowindra in the Central Ranges of NSW, and there are never any winemaking additions including sulphur.

Look out for beautiful Chardonnay, Vermentino and some delicious reds and rose.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"So this is produced by the Chateau Acid crew, a side step to look at some more diverse wines outside of their usual Rosnay quarry. Ricca Terra farms zibibbo and vermentino are the stars here. No gush on opening too. This is a ripper. Floral and fragrant, lemon peel and lemon sorbet, a bit of green apple, a bit of greenery and peppery notes too. Soft and crisp to taste, light and very fresh, gently fizzy, super delicious to drink. Easy as, wicked thirst-quenching gear. I’m in." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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).
