About The Pack

There are many who think that Chardonnay is Australia's best grape.

Not Shiraz. Not Grenache.

But Chardonnay.

When you taste the six on offer here, it's mighty hard to argue. 

Here's six outstanding Chardonnays from six of the best in the business. This pack will only be available for a limited time due to the scarce nature of some of these wines. Perfect for the avid Chardonnay fan.

2017 Hoddles Creek 1er Yarra Valley Chardonnay

The Hoddles Creek 1er Chardonnay is a wine of exceptional class and intensity.

Made exclusively from fruit grown on the Hoddles Creek estate, this is one of the Yarra Valley's benchmark Chardonnays. The fruit that winemaker Franco D'Anna had to work with in 2017 was as good as any fruit the Yarra has seen in a decade or more.

Immensely cellar-worthy and tightly wound, the 2017 vintage will go down as one of the great releases of this wine, though due to lower yields in 2017 allocations are limited. This vintage received 95 points from Campbell Mattinson.

This is premium Chardonnay done the Yarra Valley way. Buy with supreme confidence.

2017 Sorrenberg Chardonnay

If you are an avid collector of Beechworth's finest Chardonnays then this stunning Chardonnay from Barry and Jan Morey of Sorrenberg needs a place in your cellar.

The cooler site that the Sorrenberg vineyard occupies gives off Chardonnay of elegance and purity, with Barry's winemaking gently building power and texture through 100% barrel fermentation in an astute mixture of new and used oak.

This is a striking, characterful Chardonnay from a gem of a producer.

Want Chardonnay that tastes like REAL Chardonnay? Here's a beauty.

2017 Garagiste Merricks Chardonnay

The Merricks Chardonnay is the most sought-after of the Garagiste white wines.

It's the most powerful of Barney's Chardonnays, the kind of wine that blows your hair back. The fruit was as good as it gets in 2017 on the Peninsula: ripe, balanced and incredibly intense - the perfect raw materials for Barney to strut his Chardy-making stuff.

Barney is one of the finest Chardonnay makers in the region and this 2017 release is some of his best work to date.

If you've loved his wines in the past, the 2017 is a knockout not to be missed. If you're yet to give them a shot, prepare to have your world rocked by this boutique artisanal producer.

2015 Eastern Peake Intrinsic Chardonnay

Cracking Chardonnay here from Owen Latta.

No new oak used here, the fruit put front and centre. The wine is raised in wooden barrels of varying sizes that are anywhere from 2-years-old to 25-years-old. The finished wine has a magnetism and energy to it which you can't quite put your finger on.

This is just the latest in the series of blistering wines coming from this young man. An individual Chardonnay of great character and awesome value given the quality.

Gary Walsh scored it 96 points, and rightfully so. It's a knockout.

2017 Domaine Naturaliste Artus Chardonnay

After 20 years observing the area, Bruce Jukes decided all the Chardonnays from Domaine Naturaliste would be crafted entirely from the Gin Gin clone.

He selected a vineyard in the South of Margaret River that had Gin Gin cropped in a particular way, with little light flooding through the canopy. He wanted flavour intensity without the tannins that come with over-ripeness and he got it. The result of his search are the twin Chardonnays Artus and Purus.

Artus is the voluptuous seductress. The powerhouse Margaret River Chardonnay with a gymnast-like balance. 40% new oak, richness and zip in equal proportion.

2017 Pooley Butchers Hill Chardonnay

This is only the second vintage of the Butcher's Hill Chardonnay from the Pooley Family, but it's starting to attract a lot of attention.

The Chardonnay fruit from this block once was a portion of the Penfold's Yattarna Chardonnay, but here it struts its own stuff.

The 2017 vintage proving to be one of the great vintages in Tasmania. In this Chardonnay you see the purity and the drive that is characteristic of this vintage.

This is a delicious, refined Chardonnay, a little rounder than its Cooinda Vale sibling, but no less sublime.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

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).
