Featuring this month - BK Wines from the Adelaide Hills
For those that missed out on our recent tasting with evocative and poetic Brendan Keys from Adelaide Hills winery BK Wines, here’s your opportunity to secure remaining stock of these highly sought after wines. BK Wines are single vineyard, hand picked wines … organically grown using biodynamic practices, minimal intervention (including wild yeasts, no fining or filtering). Brendan makes distinctive wines of character and finesse (stylistically a discrete nod to the old world). Fanaticism in the vineyard give his wines a true sense of terroir, individual site.. making each wine unique.
BK Wines Ovum Pinot Gris 2013 RRP $35 Our Price $27.99
Named after the concrete ‘egg’ fermenter, Brendan evocatively describes it a “steely, ethereal blond with the opulent, luxurious heart”. A touch of fruitiness, texture followed by racy lip smacking acid finish. Delicious - the perfect food wine that makes you want to eat and drink more! VERY LIMITED

“Proprietor Rémy Klein is one of the most consistently top-flight winemakers among the Côtes du Rhone producers.” Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com
Domaine la Remejeanne from Sabran (high up in northern hills of Côtes du Rhône) produces wine quite distinct from those produced at lower altitudes .. Here on soils of sand and limestone the fruit is picked earlier than most resulting in highly refined wines brimming with fruit, character, purity and freshness. 2012 comprises 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah from organic low-yielding vines…aromatic and juicy (strawberries, blackberries) with a long, spicy tangy backbone. It’s dangerously more-ish and we love the price…. Vive La France!
Stunning effort here from this new label from Yalumba … 40% Grenache, 35% Shiraz and 25% Mataro, fermented separately then aged in new French and old Hungarian oak for texture and complexity. This wine opened out beautifully after day 2. No doubt about it 2012 was a dream growing season in the Barossa. This has to be the classiest GSM in the market for quality and value! Do not miss out on a case of this! BLUE-GOLD 2014 Sydney International Wine Competition; “Rich, ripe and velvety, this is dense without being heavy-handed, with cherry, blackberry, pomegranate and spice flavors that dance through the vigorous finish.” 91 points from Wine Spectator.
