About The Wine

In this wine, Brendan Keys is going for a true Grigio style, a wine which is all about texture.

This year's version is more leesy and creamy than previous releases and it's all the better for it.

The fruit from around Lenswood can handle a bit of work, so he leaves it sit on lees for four months prior to bottling.

This is some delicious juice, the wild yeast and hands-off winemaking approach allowing the fruit to do the talking. Sometimes less really is more.

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

Often Grigio is a knock-out, linear, feast for the olfactory senses before all else. This vintage at BK, though, saw greater lees contact resulting in a very different story – one that’s all about texture, a beautifully creamy, velveteen, mid-palate structure.

Seeking sensory-word guidance from the flavour wheel, we would suggest thinking of crunchy, ripe, yellow peaches and a luscious burnt-butter topping. Above all else, there is remarkable integrity in the translation from vine-to-wine in this year’s Grigio – so reminiscent of tasting this grape in the vineyard on its warm, harvest day.

Whole-bunch pressed to stainless steel. Wild fermentation. Bottled four months post-fermentation.

Blend : Pinot Grigio (100%)
ABV : 12.5%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2020

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Really lifted nose this year. Smells of apple skins and lemon drops and just-ripe-pears. Soft nutty/meally notes in the background. Nice grip and clean crisp acid. Oh and that twist of lemony tangy. Lip-smacking stuff. Grigio with some character and attitude. - Different Drop Wine Team

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?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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).
