BK Wines Ovum Gruner Veltliner 2020


Last vintage (2019) was the first attempt with a Grüner Veltliner from BK Wines. BK boldly set out to emulate Austrian producer Knoll, resulting in a wine that “BK said at the time could be a light red if you closed your eyes”. A lot has happened in the past 12 months and while memories may be foggy, winemakers notes tell the tale: Its a wine that has the same depth of light-red character, with musky rose notes and powdered Turkish Delight. Driven neither by acid nor confected sweetness but, instead, chasing the spice spectrum with softened edges and gentle hints of bitters. A favourite of ours from the 202o wines. 50% whole bunch (like a red wine), 50% barrel fermented (older French puncheon), blended to concrete egg after primary fermentation, 9 months.
