Origin: Adelaide Hills
Region: South Australia
Grape(s): Grüner Veltliner
Style: Light-bodied, crisp white wine made using the tank method
An incredible step-up compared to 2019 (which was their first Grüner vintage btw). This has managed to escape the winemaking characteristics easily and give much more varietal expression – white pepper, lemongrass, lemon juice, celery. A burst of acidity on the palate with a nice, long finish (just a touch of lees on it). Wonderful to see such a progression!
BK Wines was established in 2007 by Brendon and Kirstyn Keys. The goal has been to create fabulous art. Beautiful, unique, sensuous, deceptively minimalist, envelope-pushing art. After learning from masters in NZ, Argentina and California, they trained their sites on the Adelaide Hills. With no pretensions to be somewhere it’s not and few preconceived notions about what wine styles to expect, this is a place where non-conformity is the rule.
