BK WINES MAZI SYRAH 2013

Wine Region: Adelaide Hills, Australia

Grape: Syrah

Tasting Notes

100% whole bunch. A concentrated wine with excellent depth and huge complexity. Notes of blueberry, blackfruit, pepper, black olive and spiced meats all fight for attention. The tannins are well intergrated now but will only smooth out and silken over time. A great wine with a long savoury-sweet finish.

Ratings

James Halliday 96 pts- The use of 100% whole bunches with shiraz polarises opinions, but for my palate it has succeeded brilliantly. The wine is no more than medium-bodied, but positively pulsates with its chorus of red fruits of every description, enhanced by silky tannins and quality oak.

About the Winery

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, we trained our sites on the Adelaide Hills because it's just a cracking great place to live and make wine. With no pretentions 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. Our little winery is situated in the Hills where it is tucked away surrounded by bush land.

The fruit is all handpicked and wild yeasts are used during fermentation. Brendon uses a minimalist approach to gently guide well-chosen fruit to a beautiful final result in the bottle.
