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:
This season’s Pét Nat Pinot Noir, in addition to all the joy it brings to drink, can be almost as pleasurable just to open up and sit and watch… a veritable lava lamp of lees. Unmistakably and purely Pinot Noir on the nose, just-ripe raspberries on the palate. So many processes of control go into making a Champagne, while Pét Nat is permitted to largely create itself. Where last vintage resulted in a sort of wild, messy, walk-of-shame debauchery, this vintage is tidy and compartmentalised, with a glittery bead and velveteen mousse. Good, clean, bubbly fun. 100% Lenswood Pinot Noir. Whole-bunch pressed to concrete 'egg' fermenter. Fermented until nearly dry.
