About The Wine

The Pet Nat flood continues!

This latest offering from Alastair and Sam at Konpira Maru is fantastic and a freight-train of fun to drink.

Three varieties from the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote combine forces here in a classic (*ahem) blend of 75% Sagrantino, 20% Vermentino and 5% Dolcetto. There are only really two rules when you make Pet Nat: make it fizzy and make it delightful to drink. The boys have nailed it on both accounts.

It's not a profoundly complex wine but it will absolutely get you coming back for more.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Crushed and destemmed at the Chalmers facility and then pressed immediately, yielding 65% press ratio. All varieties were then blended, chilled and transported to the warehouse in Melbourne. Doing things this way ensured we kept the product as fresh and delicate as possible and limiting any oxygenation during the six-hour transport mission. It was then cold settled in our Melbourne facility at 2 degrees for two weeks to extract most of the tartrates and settle the juice of any impurities.

Racked and left to undergo natural ferment which was monitored to ensure a slow rate.

When sugar levels started to come close to ideal bottling levels, the cooling was used again to ensure the ferment slowed for consistency when bottling. Bottled with 14grams of sugar per litre and left for 2 weeks to finish ferment in bottle. Hand disgorged, topped, re-capped, cleaned, labeled and boxed for your drinking pleasure.

Blend : Sagrantino (75%), Vermentino (20%), Dolcetto (5%)
ABV : 13.1%
Closure : Crown
Drink Until : 2022

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Watermelon rind, Orangina and Redskin. A little more subtle than it sounds but a totally delicious combination. Well-integrated carbonation with quite a fine bead for a pet nat. Not a lot of yeast funk, more about the fresh, bright aroma and dangerously drinkable (dare we say smashable?) mouth feel." - Konpira Maru

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 02 8376 8775 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).
