About The Wine

Brendan Keys isn't afraid to do things differently, and this Pet-Nat made from 100% Basket Range Chardonnay fruit, wild yeasts and 100% concrete-egg fermentation is certainly different!

Pet-Nats are perfect for unabashed drinking on a warm afternoon, and this one goes down particularly easy.

Don't be deceived by its cloudy exterior, this is bright, flavour-packed and fun to drink whether, in BK's words, "be it for a mid-morning brunch, a barbecue at dusk or a digestif at o’ dark thirty."

About BK Wines

BK Wines is one of the poster boys of the modern artisan wine movement in the Adelaide Hills.

Owner/winemaker Brendan Keys is not afraid to do things differently. His wines are all from single vineyards (some biodynamically farmed), fermented with wild yeasts, unfined and unfiltered, with extended skin contact and even clay fermentation eggs occasionally thrown in for good measure.

His wines are creatively imagined, an artist meets skateboarding punk rocker kind of vibe.

Brendan is one of the more respected producers of the Adelaide Hills avant-garde.

Additional Info

From The Producer

By definition, Pétillant Naturel is alive… a ferment before your very eyes… a tiny winery in a bottle.

When we’re lucky and the vintage permits – as it has in 2019 – we’re blessed with a silty golden layer of Chardonnay lees that bubbles to the surface like a lava lamp. Once you’ve finished marvelling at the visual spectacle you can lose yourself in aromas of brioche, lemon curd and heady citrus blossom. Intensely fresh. If lemon blossom can also be a flavour, this is where you’ll find it, accompanying toffee apples and toasted cashews.

All sparkly on the palate with a bead so tight you could mistake it for strings of tiny pearls. Textured and weighty but lilting and floral. You’ll be forgiven if you don’t wait until the summer sun to crack this one.

100% Basket Range Chardonnay. Whole-bunch pressed to concrete ‘egg’ fermenter. Fermented until nearly dry.

Lemon and custard apples. Creamy but zippy all at once, there is a slight grip through the palate which makes you want to chew on the wine for a while. Refreshing to the max. Pretty wild but fun drinking! - Different Drop Wine Team

Fancy fizz

I found the palate to be a classic Chardonnay with a slight bitter edge which took away from the peach and oak finish.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

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?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
