About The Wine

Brendan Keys if nothing if not a boundary-pusher, and this adventurous Pinot Gris pushes more boundaries than most.

It's luscious, it's savoury,, it's mineral-charged and aromatic - it's really quite something to drink. It's the opposite of his fresh and zingy Pinot Grigio, however the fruit comes from the exact same site in Lenswood, it's just left longer on the vine and then fermented and aged in a concrete egg.

If you like your full-bodied, textural whites and don't mind something a little different, then this is a must try!

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.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"We went into this low-yielding, low-rainfall vintage anticipating intense concentration and fruit weight, but – true to 2020 form – were thrown curves in the winery. We’re used to Ovum Pinot Gris being fine-boned, but this vintage has an uncommon structure and weight to it such that you might miss the delicate prettiness in the top notes. Sit with the glass and you’ll see it soon enough – a wine that reminds you to pause and breathe while you’re smelling the roses. In the egg-shaped cement fermenter that gives Ovum its name, grape solids lend phenolic weight to the wine, evolving an otherwise brisk, tightly wound grigio into a floral, blossomy gris. Take your time with this one." - 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? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
