The Tiger Tiger Chardonnay is made from fruit hailing from the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, an exceptional place to grow Chardonnay.

It has a fresh, flintiness about it - aromas of white flowers mingle with layers of complexity and depth of your more classic Chardonnay characteristics.

It's a classic wine from Collector, and a fantastic drop for anyone that loves a cool climate Chardy.

Vineyard blocks are variously located between 610 and 760m altitude at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains. The sites offer exceptional conditions for growing Chardonnay at the cool margin. The soil is deep, well-drained, weathered granite.

The wine is fresh on the nose with aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and flint. A changing and complex wine of depth and concentration that with time in the glass reveals lemon curd, brioche and spent matchsticks. The palate is focussed, mouth-filling and long. The wine will metamorphose and take on complexity with age.

95 Points - "Lifted and evocative aromas of grapefruit pith, white flowers, nougat, white peach and a lick of struck match. Lovely complexity. Mouth-filling, fine and focused on the palate. There’s a driving, piercing line of acidity along with flavours of just-ripe white stone fruit, grilled nuts and citrus. Great length, texture and poise" - Aaron Brasher (The Real Review)


Alex Mckay was born and raised around the Canberra District. After catching the winemaking bug while working under the trailblazing Edgar Riek at Lake George Winery, Alex started his own label, Collector, in 2005.

He has become one of the region's most important small producers, with a suite of elegant Shiraz, piercing cool climate Chardonnay and an excellent selection of alternative varieties, particularly those of Italian origin.

There's a quiet confidence and composure you can sense in every glass of Collector wines. With terrific reviews and very modest prices, they represent much of what is great about the modern Canberran wine scene.

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.
