BK Wines

Remy - 2017 - Brendon Keys


KEYS Brendon

A 100% Pinot Noir cuvée from vines planted at 300 metres altitude in the village of Lenswood, in southeast Australia. Harvested by hand, maceration of whole bunches with indigenous yeasts, gentle pressing, 15 months maturation in new French oak barrels, neither filtered nor fined, and bottled with a micro-dose of sulphur. Only 240 bottles produced!
Brendon Keys may have the look of an overgrown teenage skateboarder, but don’t be fooled – this is a vigneron to be taken seriously! Straight out of New Zealand, Brendon first developed his sensibility as a chef before falling into the barrel... or rather the cement egg – a vessel which he particularly values for the purity and richness it brings to his wines. After studying oenology back in Gisborne, this vino-loving hipster embarked on a world tour of wine apprenticeships, with notable stays in Argentina and California. It was finally in Australia’s Adelaide Hills, and more specifically in Basket Range (a hotspot of natural wine in Australia) that Brendon and his wife Kirstyn decided to settle and found their winery. The adventure of BK Wines began in 2007, and the precision of the couple’s work has since become increasingly refined. Single vineyard cuvées, high quality harvests, indigenous yeasts, minimalist vinifications, tiny doses of sulphur... with each inspired decision, the Keys have developed what is today an exemplary, zero-concession approach to winemaking. Cheers to skater wine!
