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

Pet Nat – or rustic, farmhouse sparkling wine created by producing a fermentation in the bottle – is to sunshine as gumboots are to muddy puddles… you don’t have to have either of them to enjoy the other but you’re a whole lot happier if you do.

The fruit in 2020 wasn’t plentiful but what there was of it sure was beautiful. The growing season started cool and wet, shifted gears radically into drought and two back-to-back early heat waves, and finished off long and unseasonably mild. The fruit that made it through the madness is delicate, pretty and well-balanced. Light, white pear flavours and enticing frizz. You’ll find yourself praying for summer sunshine or just sitting under a warm, bright light with your glass and pretending it’s here.

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

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
ABV : 12%
Closure : Crown
Drink Until : 2021
Bottle Size : 750ml

DDS review

Lemon and custard apples, pineapple and citrus. 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. A touch of sweetness. Refreshing to the max. Pretty wild but fun drinking! - Different Drop Wine Team

Great surprise

I expected this to be yummy but not as interesting as it was. Well balanced creamy, tropical fruits.

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. 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: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
