  • THE BRIEF
  • BK's flagship Pinot from a single vineyard in Lenswood, Adelaide Hills. Like most of Brendon's wines, it's 100% whole bunch and wild fermentation.

    The Gower Pinot is consistently awarded year after year - the 2016 vintage won the Trophy for best Pinot at the Adelaide Hills Show, while the 2018 vintage has been ranked #1 Pinot Noir from the Adelaide Hills 2018 by the folks over at The Real Review.

    Compared to previous years, the 2018 is a bolder, more assertive Pinot, with plenty of savoury forest floor earthiness, dark cherry and five spice lift. Certainly approachable now, it will also age well over the next few years.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • 2018 was a year of ‘masculine’ characters across all of our varietals – leaving aside wafting perfumes to cooler vintages – a profile that suits Gower to a tee. Musk and undergrowth on the nose Morello cherries, exotic spices and white pepper on the palate with great tannic structure. A handsome balance between finesse and power – broad shoulders and a slim waist. With a nod to European styling, this wine is all clarity of purpose and no apologies.

    100% Lenswood Pinot Noir, handpicked, 100% whole bunch, wild-yeast fermentation, one month on skins, only four barrels made, 10 months in 25% new French oak, bottled in December 2017, unfiltered & unfined.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • 'I want to make wines that people share with their friends and talk about – talk about the style, about where it comes from.'
    Brendon Keys

    BK Wines was established in 2007 by Brendon Keys and his wife, Kirstyn. Like many of the new-wave, rockstar winemakers, Brendon and Kirstyn settled in the Adelaide Hills, where non-conformity seems to be the norm. Their passion for making wines with interest and integrity shines through.

    Brendon’s greatest strengths as a winemaker are his passion for artistic expression and his uncompromising quest for high-quality fruit. When it comes to the process of winemaking, Brendon’s goal, first and foremost, is to source exceptional small vineyards producing grapes that reflect the individuality of a particular site. 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.

    NICK BUTLER - THE REAL REVIEW


    Crimson red colour, bright and yet cloudy, unfiltered. Bunch-spice and dark cherries framed by a healthy lick of new French oak, the aromatics are complex - red licorice and plum sauce. The palate is fresh and serious, charry oak spice and ripe tannins afford structure to a beautifully fruited mid-palate. This will develop beautifully. Super-classy

    A fine-tannined pinot with dried-strawberry and lemon-zest aromas and flavors. Medium body. Crisp acidity. Savory finish. Lovely texture. Drink now.
