Details

Judith Beck Ink, juicy, fresh, biodynamic, Austrian red wine. Ink is a very lively, fresh biodynamic wine from Burgenland in Austria. The Judith Beck winery is based near lake (i can never pronounce it) Neusiedlersee. This is the warmest region of Austria for wine production. They can get some quite big red wines here and many producers beef them up further with new, toasted oak and go for richness and power. Judith Beck Ink is not like that at all! It is a biodynamic beauty with a blast of dark fruits, spices and fresh, springy juiciness that leaps from the glass on the nose and hits the palate like a mouthful of summer berries. There are no oaky flavours in Ink although some time in large barrels is spent in the maturation. This biodynamic red from Judith Beck is for natural summer quaffing and it is perfect for that!

Winery Judith Beck is in Gols in Burgenland. They are a 15 hectare estate and have been working using biodynamics since 2007. The philosophy is one born of attention to detail and respect for the environment and their native grapes and soil. Judith Beck herself studied abroad at places like Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux and Errazuriz in Chile but returned home to take over from her father and take the winery forward embracing the new wave of natural wine making.'Biodynamics is an art of healing which takes advantage of the holistic curativeness of nature. It aims at strengthening the natural resistance of the plant. Pest and disease control are mainly affected in a prophylactic manner. We encourage the formation of humus, as a basis of healthy soils, by regularly applying cattle manure which we prepare ourselves and by cultivating grass between the rows. Herbal teas (such as stinging nettle, chamomile, field horsetail … ) and biodynamic field sprays such as horn manure and horn silica are used under the consideration of moon rhythms; their purpose being to strengthen resistance and further the physiological ripeness of grapes. It is our foremost aim to produce authentic wines with an individual aroma profile while at the same time maintaining healthy soil and vines. Part of this is also the absence of unnatural yeasts.' - Judith Beck. These are sentiments and ideas we like at Buon Vino and the wines are really delicious, fresh and also great value for money.

    Tasted this wine over dinner in a restaurant in London. Was soft and mellow and very easy to drink .enjoyed it so much we were keen to buy after our meal.Only place we could source it was through Buon Vino.. Their delivery costs were very reasonable and was impressed with speed of delivery. Also a call on the day of delivery to confirm the address and time. Would recommend and will use again to find something a little different at a reasonable price.
