Bk Wines Jean Bernard Syrah Adelaide Hills 2008

Member Review by penguinoid:

Restrained, elegant wine that is quite different from the typical Australian Shiraz -- presumably hence the decision to call it Syrah. Rich, intense nose of rich dark fruits, raspberry and cassis with spices (cinnamon) and pencil shavings. On the palate, rich red fruits, raspberry and sour cherry. Sweet, rich and smooth with spicy oak on the front palate, and rich sour cherry on the back palate. Beautiful smooth mouthfeel, with smooth well rounded tannins.

BK Wines is a small single vineyard wine producer based in the Adelaide Hills which specialises in minimal interactive wines. We use indigenous yeast and the finest French Oak to complement the unique Terrior and sites of the Adelaide Hills. Established in 2007, by Winemaker Brendon Keys and good mate Zane Scott, who are both young and passionate New Zealanders excited about the prospects and diversity of such a young wine region. Brendon has worked in a variety of exciting countries including New Zealand, Australia, Sonoma Valley California, and Mendoza Argentina. His love of good food, music and travel has lead to a natural progression and interest in wine, and we hope this love is portrayed in our wines through attention to detail. Read less
