About

About The Wine

In this wine, Brendan Keys is going for a true Grigio style, a wine which is all about texture.

This year's version is more leesy and creamy than previous releases and it's all the better for it.

The fruit from around Lenswood can handle a bit of work, so he leaves it sit on lees for four months prior to bottling.

This is some delicious juice, the wild yeast and hands-off winemaking approach allowing the fruit to do the talking. Sometimes less really is more.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Really lifted nose this year. Smells of apple skins and lemon drops and just-ripe-pears. Soft nutty/meally notes in the background. Nice grip and clean crisp acid. Oh and that twist of lemony tangy. Lip-smacking stuff. Grigio with some character and attitude. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

Often Grigio is a knock-out, linear, feast for the olfactory senses before all else. This vintage at BK, though, saw greater lees contact resulting in a very different story – one that’s all about texture, a beautifully creamy, velveteen, mid-palate structure.

Seeking sensory-word guidance from the flavour wheel, we would suggest thinking of crunchy, ripe, yellow peaches and a luscious burnt-butter topping. Above all else, there is remarkable integrity in the translation from vine-to-wine in this year’s Grigio – so reminiscent of tasting this grape in the vineyard on its warm, harvest day.

Whole-bunch pressed to stainless steel. Wild fermentation. Bottled four months post-fermentation.
