BK Ovum Pinot Gris 12pk 2016
BK is Brendon Keys, a nomadic Kiwi who has that irksome quality of being multitalented: DJ, skateboarder, chef and a freakishly talented winemaker. After his vinous ‘rite of passage’ making booze in the US, Argentina and New Zealand, BK put down roots in the Adelaide Hills. There aren’t any high- octane bruisers here, but wines of texture and detail that have an almost old world sensibility. He describes his winemaking as ‘modern French’, and why not. He focuses on varieties and vines best suited to their sites, and makes wine in an intuitive, gentle way – knowing when to intervene and, perhaps more importantly, having the courage to do nothing.
