Description

Californian Chardonnay can be rich, opulent and very expensive. And then we have the Fat Bastard Chardonnay, which is rich, opulent and very cheap.

The grapes come from the scenic Monterrey region in California, down the coast from San Francisco. It's an area that makes powerful, tropical Chardonnays, but rarely so inexpensive. Look for peaches and nectarines, burnt butter aromas and a rich, cream and butterscotch palate.

Aged in French and American oak, backed up by some nice load-bearing acidity, this is great honest-to-goodness Chardonnay drinking. Get in my belly.

Just like they used to make 'em. Our Fat Bastard Chardonnay has an opulent, rich palate of grilled pineapple, spiced butterscotch and loaded with peach and apricot. Filled with macadamia and almond meal notes, bright acidity bringing liveliness and freshness. Full bodied goodness.

The Golden States climate is the secret to producing both quality and quantity of one of Fat Bastards favourite whites, Chardonnay. Known for its rolling hills and valleys and often compared to the Mediterranean, California produces classic examples of oaked chardonnays. Creamy, rich and full of that Fat Bastard feel.

Drink with Gnocchi and sage burnt butter. Whilst most might think the butter on butter mix could clash, we say don’t estimate this Fat Bastard.

    Rich "Fat Bastard"

    Well it's not the big refined Chardy from Napa / Sonoma but it's certainly close and WAY cheaper!

    Can't go wrong if you like the California style.

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.
