BK Wines Cidre 2023


BK – “Our cidre is in its 4th year, made with seven heritage apple varieties from a block in Tasmania, and grown on a small nearby property that we can practically see from our deck in Basket Range. We pick in February, pop it into the cold store until grape harvest, and then it re-emerges to join in with the fermentation gala when there are yeasts aplenty floating throughout the winery. Cidre has been a grow-as-we-go adventure for us, and this year has proved to be a strong step forth in our evolution – slightly more residual sugar and slightly fewer solids, yielding an approachable, easy-to-love, summer favourite. An umami finish with juniper at the back palate and notes of star anise and five spice give it just enough complexity to sway the cidre snobs at the backyard gathering.”

More Information

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 and vineyard is situated in the Hills where it is tucked away surrounded by native bush land, koalas and an abundant birdlife.

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 sustainable 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.
