Like a butterscotch candy disappearing on your tongue… like the ethereal glint of rainbow dancing on the edge of a Swarovski crystal… One Ball has evolved into beautiful perfection and after this vintage will fade gracefully from the scene. She was the stunning, pugnacious sister act to our Swaby Chardonnay. Vanessa Paradis with her gapped front teeth chirping sweetly while swinging boldly on a perch in a birdcage. If she were born today, One Ball would be Billie Eilish – a fierce and appealing anti-coquette for the ages. We are humbled by the vineyard that was her origin and so pleased that our plans for her came to fruition. Au revoir, fille forte! Pressed to barrel, 10-15% new French oak for nine months. - BK
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 in the Hills where it is tucked away surrounded by bush land.
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.
But hey, if you really want to know about us. Grab a bottle of BK that peaks your interest, crank up something you love to hear, pour a few glasses and spend time with people who make you smile and think.
