About The Wine

Trophy for Best Pinot Noir of Show - 2017 Adelade Hills Wine Show

Brendan Keys is one of the Adelaide Hills' most passionate innovative Pinot Noir producers, and he's on, he's really on.

His 2016 Gower Pinot Noir is BK in top form. It was hand-picked from a single vineyard in Lenswood, naturally fermented with 90% whole bunches and one month on its skins. It's unfined, unfiltered and full of raw, joyous pinosity.

With a Trophy under its belt for Best Pinot in a hot field at the 2017 Adelaide Hills Wine Show and only a few barrels made, this is a rare gem worth adding to your Pinot collection.

About BK Wines

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.

His wines are creatively imagined, an artist meets punk rock kind of vibe.

Brendan is one of the more respected producers of the Adelaide Hills avant garde.

Trophy for Best Pinot Noir of Show - 2017 Adelaide Hills Wine Show

DDS review

"Glintingly garnet and with that classic, alluring Burgundian, almost bodily, earthiness. Gower 2016 is a Chesterfield leather couch absorbing you beside a fireplace. Venison smoked over cherry wood is on the menu. Vigorous and energetic on the palate." - Brendan Keys
