BK WINES GOWER PINOT NOIR 2016

Wine Region: Adelaide Hills, Australia

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

Distinctive varietal raspberry, sour cherry and strawberry creaminess on the nose is punctuated by the pomander-ball spiciness of ripe oranges pricked with cloves and the umami tang of shiitake mushrooms. The palate is classic, delicate, elegant Old World Pinot Noir power without density. Gentle, fine tannins and bright, open fruit characteristics with just a hint of campari bitters. A satisfyingly complete Pinot Noir.

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.
