Description

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.

This release features two varieties from the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote combining here in a classic (*ahem) blend of 80% Sagrantino and 20% Vermentino. 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.

The moment when you stare deep into the distance with a singular intensity and, for a moment, glimpse the unglimpseable. A moment of divine inspiration, afflatus, a euphoric, splendorous glow of unexpected deep insight. What do you see? A rare, crystalline comprehension of the 4th dimension? A navigable path through a personal imbroglio? Me. I see a spectre of true magnificence, a vision of whimsical but strident beauty. The Mt Midoriyama Total Victory Pet Nat, presented in its total glory. Sagrantino and Vermentino conjugated by a delicate thread of acid. An other-wordly, transcendental liquefacted victual. What a time to be alive.

Production notes:

Production: 80% Sagrantino, 20% Vermentino. Crushed and de-stemmed by Bart and crew at Chalmers HQ and then pressed immediately, yielding a 70% press ratio. All varieties were then blended, chilled and transported to the Konpira Melbourne HQ. 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. Cold settled for a week and then racked and left to undergo natural ferment with cooling from our DIY rebuilt $100 chiller we rescued from the local tip and now run fully solar powered. Bottled with 14grams of residual grape sugar per litre and left for 4 weeks to finish ferment in bottle. Transferred to our cold room once inverted and left for 2 weeks at 2 degrees to ensure we remove as much yeast and tartrate as possible when disgorging. Hand disgorged, topped, re-capped, cleaned, dried, labeled and boxed for your drinking pleasure. 13% abv.

Tasting notes:

Vermentino really taking the spotlight this year with bags of citrussy tang which will no doubt development into that campari-esque character we have come to know and love in this wine. All super primary watermelon at the minute, really great fun. Palate is textural yet fresh with a creamy mouthfeel from the fine bead, actually an absurdly fine bead for a pet nat. Fresh, bright, and dangerously drinkable.

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.

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.
