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.
