About The Wine
In 2016 Brendan Keys and Gareth Belton (Gentle Folk) split the fruit from this highly prized, biodynamically grown Syrah vineyard in the Adelaide Hills.
2016 was a sensational year for Syrah in the region, the fruit quality as high as it has been in 10 years. Brendan cashed in on the season.
There was only a small amount of this made, which is a pity. It's a classic, ethereal Syrah which Brendan describes as "Traditional Rhône characteristics of mulberry and oyster shell with a white-pepper tang."
It's one of those wines where everything came together perfectly for BK. One of his finest to date.
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 skateboarding punk rocker kind of vibe.
Brendan is one of the more respected producers of the Adelaide Hills avant-garde.
