The Walgalu Country Chardonnay hails from the cool climes of the Tumbarumba region in southern NSW, a long way from Paul 'Pauly' Vandenbergh's home of coastal South Australia.

It's a tightly wound but powerful style of Chardonnay, built in a medium-term cellaring style if you wish.

It's slight sea-spray and flinty core on minerality make it the perfect match to a healthy serving of fresh seafood that no doubt Paul's ancestors would have enjoyed.

Munda Walgalu Country Chardonnay 2023 (Tumbarumba, NSW)

A wet winter & spring, followed by late season frosts and hail resulting in a low yield of very high quality.


March 18th 2023


Crushed and a gentle air bag press with 100% fermentation in seasoned French Oak barriques, with 100% malolactic fermentation.


100% maturation in seasoned French Oak for 8 months. Bottled mid March 2024.


Aromas of light white stone fruit and white flowers, citrus, beeswax, toasted muesli and nuts, with background exotic spices.


The palate is textural and full flavoured with restrained yet complexing oak use. The wine is balanced and has a fine acidity that is balanced and gives a focused line to the palate.


7-10 years in the right cellaring conditions.

Munda Wines

Paul 'Pauly' Vandenbergh is the First Nations Wirangu man behind new Australian wine label, Munda.

Vandenbergh was working in an Indigenous leadership position for the AFL before embarking on his connected-to-country wine project. Munda (a Wirangu and Kokatha people’s word for "land") is aiming to explore an ancient connection to the land for his people through the vehicle of wine, while simultaneously opening doors for the younger generation of the indigenous community to enter into the wine industry via his not for profit Tjindu Foundation.

Vandenbergh partners with established producers to craft premium wines that tell a beautiful story of his country. It's an entirely original Australian reframing of the European concept of 'terroir', that honours the traditional names of each of the regions which he sources fruit from.

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.
