Bk Wines Gruner Veltliner Ovum
Brendon and Kirstyn Keys established their Adelaide Hills winery in 2007 after learning from winemaking masters around the globe. With the idea of wine making as an artistic expression in mind, BK Wines focuses on making subtly nuanced wines from the best quality fruit, with a minimalistic approach in the cellar. Fruit is sourced from tiny vineyards that express the unique characteristic inherent to those particular plots of vines and where Brendon can have great control over how the grapes are grown. BK’s wines are the perfect alignment of minimal intervention & maximum quality; they are natural & balanced!
"Our Ovum Grüner Veltliner is a wine long on structure that met its match in 2022… a vintage so structural, it was sculptural. Where 2021 was plush – eschewing the Australian tendency to push this variety toward acidic austerity – 2022 is statuesque, displaying uncommon weight and heft even on the nose, with crunchy quince, hachiya persimmon and white pepper characters. Herbaceous and juicy on the palate. Ovum has the vivacious wild spirit of a natural wine, but long fermentation and a full year on lees result in a seriousness far more befitting the top shelf." - BK Wines
