About The Wine

Trophy for Best Pinot Noir of Show - 2017 Adelade Hills Wine Show

Brendan Keys is one of the Adelaide Hills' most passionate innovative Pinot Noir producers, and he's on, he's really on.

His 2016 Gower Pinot Noir is BK in top form. It was hand-picked from a single vineyard in Lenswood, naturally fermented with 90% whole bunches and one month on its skins. It's unfined, unfiltered and full of raw, joyous pinosity.

With a Trophy under its belt for Best Pinot in a hot field at the 2017 Adelaide Hills Wine Show and only a few barrels made, this is a rare gem worth adding to your Pinot collection.

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 punk rock kind of vibe.

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

Trophy for Best Pinot Noir of Show - 2017 Adelaide Hills Wine Show

DDS review

"Glintingly garnet and with that classic, alluring Burgundian, almost bodily, earthiness. Gower 2016 is a Chesterfield leather couch absorbing you beside a fireplace. Venison smoked over cherry wood is on the menu. Vigorous and energetic on the palate." - Brendan Keys

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).
