Description

Talk about sitting on the vinous fence. This baller chillable wine is either a Rose or a Light Red, but your only real choice is one bottle or two.

100% Lenswood Pinot Noir that spent three days on skins before being gently bled off (the Saignee bit). It's a bright but dirty pale red in colour with a some darker fruit characters following on from the stewed strawberry aromas.

Very satisfying easy drinker no matter which side of the fence you fall off.

Our Saignée – meaning the first flush of juice ‘bled’ off, rather than pressed out, of fermented grapes – is a pretty deliberate commentary on the evolution of our views on rosé, with heartfelt inspiration taken from Eric Pfiffering’s L’Anglore Tavel Rosé. Where we used to tend toward rosé in the blush, lean Provence-esque style, our thoughts on the matter have taken a turn. What we now look for is really better seen as a very pale red, a wine that can stand up to bigger food dishes and, despite its bloom of youth, offers more opportunity for consideration.



The alchemy that comes with a few extra days on skin takes our Saignée beyond strawberries-and-cream into the super-ripe strawberry realm, with quince paste complexity on the back palate. Reflective of what is going on in our winery (in our lives) with a bit more maturity and clearer head space, this wine sings springtime for adults.

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.
