Origin: Adelaide Hills
Region: South Australia
Style: Full-bodied red wine aged in used oak barrels
Brooding, dark berried wine, rich flavours, lots of stewed and dried fruits, the finish a bit drying-dried out, but the rest of the wine seems to find some mojo and complexity. Meaty, dried fruit characters, rich panforte notes too. Lots to chew on. Big red wine. Lovers line up, this is done pretty well.
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.
