- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The Skin ‘n’ Bones White is a project a long time in the making for Brendan Keys.
The 2016 vintage is 100% Savagnin without the Chardonnay addition of previous releases. This is an exploration of the textural side of white wine making. This is the most complete and well-balanced version to date.
It’s savoury, it’s funky - it’s a white with a wild personality.
What It Tastes Like
Puff of talc perfume. Some ripe golden fruit. Smells flinty notes goes down with a touch of creaminess in the mid palate. It’s kind of tonic like. Tasting the aromatics. Lavender oil. Some mineral and saline characters to close. Such an intriguing wine.
100% Lobethal Savagnin. Wild yeasts, nine months bâttonage, 12 months in 100% neutral French oak.
Closure: Screw Cap
Bottle Size: 750ml
Drink Until: 2020
About the Producer
BK Wines is one of the poster boys of the modern artisan wine movement in the Adelaide Hills. Owner / winemaker Brendan Keys is not afraid to do things differently. His wines are all from single vineyards (some biodynamically farmed), fermented with wild yeasts, unfined and unfiltered, with extended skin contact and even clay fermentation eggs occasionally thrown in for good measure. Wild stuff!
The Adelaide Hills may be the most energised wine region in the country. The sense of exploration and creativity amongst the tribe of talented young winemakers in this region is unparralelled. The Hills has become crucible of Australian wine talent, offering an array of varieties, from classics such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to new varieties like Nebbiolo and Grüner Veltliner for the younger generation to play with. Every vintage brings new colour and complexity to the rich wine, food and produce culture of this cool climate region.
