Bk Wines la Bombe Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

BK 2009 La Bombe Pinot Noir is plush garnet velvet to the eye. On the nose the wine is wild, intense and multi-layered, opening with rich, ripe black cherries, peppered meat, almonds and cedar. With time in the glass the aromas lift with scents of freshly cut green herbs and wild strawberries. On the palate this weighty, structured wine is – as the name implies – a mouth-filling, luscious plum and cherry explosion. Attractive hints of green tannin from the whole-bunch pressing remain, adding further complexity to the middle palate. This bold, full-bodied interpretation of Pinot Noir is a big, beautiful wine today that will mellow to become darkly elegant over the next seven to ten years.

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.

Nose: earthy, deep rich black cherry, beetroot, elderberry. Palate: earthy, deep rich dark sour cherry, plum, elderberry, sappy, dried herbs. Savoury, rich, dry, with firm tea-like tannins. Fresh, sharp acidity. Long on palate.
