Description

This is BK's take on a Beaujolais-esque style of Pinot Noir.

The fruit is all fermented as whole bunches in a large oak vat. Carbonic maceration is a process that occurs when the berries are kept whole and in tact before fermentation begins. As fermentation starts inside the berries, an array of bright, jubey flavours and aromas begin to show themselves, ultimately giving the wine the 'bubblegummy' characters that Beaujolais in noted for.

Here the finished wine is light-medium bodied, full of candied fruits and a lick of amaro bitterness. It's bottled unfined and unfiltered. It's awesome to drink with a chill or without.

Our spring-release wines – the first cabs off the rank from the harvest just gone – offer an opportunity to see how our earliest predictions of the vintage stack up against reality and read the tealeaves for what time will continue to bring for our barrelled wines. If our Carbonic Pinot Noir is anything to go by, 2021 promises to be a truly great vintage.


A concentrated, springtime-fruit basket nose with suggestions of charcuterie, you could almost be convinced you were drinking a Gamay or a bright Syrah. Carbonic maceration gives Pinot Noir a very particular aromatic profile and a seductive lift. Cherry seeds, a sprinkle of cinnamon and Aperol with a citric twist on the palate, with soft tannins to soothe. For a wine so young to achieve balance means many great things for the wines to come. We shall quite cheerfully sip away at this one while we await its more ponderous siblings

Customer Reviews

BK Wines

BK Wines is one of the poster boys of the modern artisan wine movement in the Adelaide Hills.

Owner/winemaker Brendon Keys is not afraid to do things differently. His wines toe the line perfectly between a lo-fi and scientific approach to winemaking. The wines are precise, edgy and layered, showing the perfect intersection of a natural wine ideology and sound technical craftsmanship.

His wines are creatively imagined, an artist meets skateboarding punk rocker kind of vibe. And they have a very solid and well-deserved following. In short, BK is one of the more respected producers of the Adelaide Hills avant-garde.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
