Description

Angus Vinden has spent years now analysing the Howard family's Somerset vineyard.

He says these days he knows it almost as well as his own estate grown vines. For this Chardonnay, Angus isolates the best Chardonnay fruit from the plantings and ferments a single barrel for a separate bottling.

It's flinty and creamy and quietly powerful. Another great Chardonnay here from one of the great young talents operating in the Hunter Valley today.

<div>Sourced from our Somerset Vineyard. The block was planted by the Howard family in 1980 on fine clay loam soil, the fruit was hand picked, whole bunch pressed and juice transferred directly to large format French oak, where the wine underwent barrel fermentation. During the 7 month &egrave;levage, b&acirc;tonnage was conducted to build creamy texture to support the fruit and oak spice. The wine has partial natural simultaneous Malo, however not full. The wine is un-fined and coarse filtered.

92 Points - "Medium straw-yellow tint. The nose lifts with ripe peaches, warm honey and lemon curd notes. Opens with concentrated and fleshy stone fruit and a sea-spray mineral line. As it flows, it carries its weight well with a bright acid line that brings focus and persistence." - Stuart Knox (The Real Review)

Vinden Estate

Young Angus Vinden is the owner/winemaker of this much-loved Hunter Valley winery.

Having taken the reins from his father just a few years ago, Gus is reimagining his family's wine label with a string of exciting, modern wines coming out of his cellar.

He sources fruit from some of the Hunter's greatest vineyards, focusing primarily on Semillon and Shiraz, as well as turning out a very good Tempranillo.

He's one of the young guns of the Hunter Valley that should have a close eye kept on him. His wines are on the up!

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
