About The Wine

This wine was inspired by Ramato styles of Pinot Gris from Friuli in Italy.

It's Gris in disguise as a Rosé. BK fermented the fruit on skins as whole bunches, picking up the lovely blushed coppery colour, wild amaro herbs and crunchy tannin that comes with this winemaking technique.

A world away from the insipid simple dry whites that populate the wine fridges of many a bottle shop. This is a wine of texture, energy and interest. A great addition to the BK range and perfect for those looking for pink or orange wines for laid back weekends.

About 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 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

Somewhere along the way our passion for rosé evolved into a full-blown love affair with Ramato, traditionally a skin-contact Pinot Grigio from the Friuli region of northern Italy. But ours is a Pinot Gris, which is same-same but different.

Whole-bunch ferment with 10 days on skins followed by 10 months in a 500L old French puncheon, a mellow, softening environment. Permit yourself ample time to swirl and wend your way through the aromas – intense, flinty, verging-on-reductive, with hints at Pecorino. Where white Pinot Gris are nectarine and citrus, our Ramato is guava, loquat and quince with salivating tannins. The quintessential long Sunday lunch offering.

    LOVED LOVED LOVED this wine

    I have always been a little skeptical of natural wine (having tasted a few doozies) but this is delightful, its light with a little funk but nothing offensive. Would happily drink this again and again.YUM

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).
