Grape variety: Pinot Gris
A white Pinot Gris that was once released under the name of Ovum, it has been given a new name and can be introduced to Japan for the first time in several years. The structure is basically the same as Grüner, which will be explained below, and the liquid pressed in the whole bunch is put into a 1800L egg tank as it is, and it is placed as it is "in the womb" from fermentation to aging. increase. This very impressive wine name is a brewer that Brendan would have felt in terms of various elements such as "residual sugar", "presence of skin contact", and "alcohol content" in the expression of Pinot Gris in recent years. (Sorry, this is Obara's own imagination. Brendan doesn't actively explain such vulgar aspects.) Beyond that conflict, the bottle contains the liquid that results from throwing away the ego as a brewer.
The Pinot Gris is brewed in a ceramic egg tank (1800L) with a characteristic shape. The whole bunch is pressed into an egg tank and left to undergo natural fermentation and aging for about 10 months, just like spending time in a human womb. A small amount of antioxidants is added before bottling. Unfiltered, no clarifiers used.
BKWines was founded in 2007 in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia by brewer BrendonKeys. Brendan was born in NZ. He started his career as a chef, but his passion soon turned to wine. After starting out as a winemaker in Gisborne, New Zealand, Brendan moved to California to hone his skills under Paul Hobbs, who was the head brewer at Opus One. After that, in 2004, he participated in the establishment of Viña Cobos in Argentina at the request of Paul.

I was excited inside.
Brendan's style is natural but never nostalgic, even avant-garde. Assuming fermentation with wild yeasts and minimal use of sulfites (or no), he went out and selected skin contact, carbonic maceration, whole cell fermentation, and even production using film yeast. It is used in a variety of ways according to the condition of the grapes harvested from a single vineyard. But Bren in detail
With Dan's passion and utmost attention, the resulting wines are of extreme perfection and have acquired a stunning personality that combines a serious side with a friendly expression. By drinking his wine, we get a glimpse into the bottomless world of Brendan.
