BK Wines Carbonic Pinot Noir 2021


BK is a good friend of ours, one of the most grounded people, who also happens to skate a lot, be a good dad and make amazing wines. He is one of the cornerstones of natural winemaking in the Adelaide Hills, bringing purposeful touch to unwieldy styles as well as effortlessly delivering world-class fine wine. We love you BK!

Words from the man himself-

Our spring-release wines – the first cabs off the rank from the harvest just gone – offer an opportunity to see how our earliest predictions of the vintage stack up against reality and read the tealeaves for what time will continue to bring for our barrelled wines. If our Carbonic Pinot Noir is anything to go by, 2021 promises to be a truly great vintage. A concentrated, springtime-fruit basket nose with suggestions of charcuterie, you could almost be convinced you were drinking a Gamay or a bright Syrah. Carbonic maceration gives Pinot Noir a very particular aromatic profile and a seductive lift. Cherry seeds, a sprinkle of cinnamon and Aperol with a citric twist on the palate, with soft tannins to soothe. For a wine so young to achieve balance means many great things for the wines to come. We shall quite cheerfully sip away at this one while we await its more ponderous siblings. 100% whole-bunch Lenswood Pinot Noir. Three weeks in large wooden cuvée. Full carbonic maceration.
