2019 BK Wines Ovum Gruner Veltliner Adelaide Hills – BK Wines was established in 2007 by Brendon and Kirstyn Keys. Their goal has been to create fabulous art. Beautiful, unique, sensuous, deceptively minimalist, envelope-pushing art.
Brendon’s greatest strengths as a winemaker are his passion for artistic expression and his uncompromising quest for high-quality fruit. As a winemaker he uses a minimalist approach to gently guide well-chosen fruit to a beautiful final result in the bottle. This combination of an artistic soul and unyielding quality standards makes Brendon a recognised master of his craft.
They shamelessly nod to a favoured and hugely admired Austrian producer, Knoll, with their first take on Grüner Veltiner. High-altitude Austrian wines find the balance between tight acid structure – the natural result of their alpine landscape – and the weight of light skin contact, allowing them to stand up to richer, Germanic dishes.
Maturation in their large cement ‘egg’ pulls the full substance and viscosity of the fruit to the mid-palate. If you closed your eyes you could well imagine a red wine. Stone fruit pungency. Dried orange peel, negroni and spice on the palate.
50% whole bunch (like a red wine), 50% barrel fermented (older French puncheon), blended to concrete egg after primary fermentation, 9 months.
