BK Wines Cult Syrah 2014
Bright violet color. Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet evokes dark berry liqueur, olive paste, bacon fat, pungent flowers and camphor, plus a zesty black pepper overtone; this is a dead ringer for a wine from the northern Rhone. Spicy and incisive on the palate, offering gently sweet blueberry and violet pastille flavors and a strong note of spicecake. Shows outstanding clarity and lift on the finish, with dusty building tannins adding grip.
BK Wines was established in 2007 by Brendon and Kirstyn Keys. The goal has been to create fabulous art. Beautiful, unique, sensuous, deceptively minimalist, envelope-pushing art. After learning from masters in NZ, Argentina and California, we trained our sites on the Adelaide Hills because it’s just a cracking great place to live and make wine. With no pretentions to be somewhere it’s not and few preconceived notions about what wine styles to expect, this is a place where non-conformity is the rule. Our little winery is situated Lenswood where it is tucked away surrounded by bush land and vines. 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.
