BK Wines Carbonic Chardonnay 2017


“Car Bomb” refers to a process known as carbonic maceration. It’s unusual for this technique to be used with Chardonnay, but hey, that’s Brendon’s typically left-field thinking when it comes to wine. A fun game with this wine is Guess the Grape. Punchy, blossom-like aromatics that are clean and vibrant and evolve in the glass, taking you on a sensory journey. Far zippier – more like an aromatic white – on the palate, but it screams Chardonnay with its energy and mid-palate creaminess. Beautiful.

More Information

If you give the bottle a bit of a shake before drinking to mix in the light lees at the bottom of the bottle, you can really feel the fine chalkiness of light tannins. BK has been quoted as saying that he would make 10 chardonnays a year if he could so he could play endlessly with this malleable varietal… wines like this are the reason why.

Brendon Keys is a freethinking frontier wine-maker.  His wines are cutting edge, yet they are the very definition of modern Australian quality winemaking. Brendon does do things a bit differently but always with great control and purpose.

All BK Wines are from single vineyards and are fermented using wild yeast.  All reds are unfiltered and unfined.

BK Wines was awarded 5 Stars in the 2021 James Halliday Wine Companion
