Details

Judith Beck Neuburger Bambule! Biodynamic production, natural wine at its purest, lowish acidity, yet with crunchy herb and full of energy. This is a true natural wine (Bambule referring to some sort of protest or revolution) so has something a bit wild about it, but that doesn't mean it's not approachable and extremely drinkable. Unfiltered, unfined and with no added sulphites. Neuburger is an autochthonous, Austrian grape variety, that has its origins in Wachau area and is also grown in the Czech Republic. It has been cultivated in Burgenland for a very long time, especially around lake Neusiedlersee. It’s not a popular grape as yeilds are unstable and very low and it is a grape variety with a naturally low acidity, that’s why Beck like to work with skin macerations of 5-10 days which adds texture and makes up for the lack of acid. By doing this they obtain very intense, almost exotic fruit flavours and a rich almost toffee apple like character. The wine undergoes spontaneous fermentation and is then allowed to mature for 12 months in large used wooden barrels and then bottles for the same amount of time.

Winery Judith Beck is a 15 hectare estate in Gols in Austria's Burgenland which has been farming biodynamically since 2007, aiming to respect the environment and produce the best quality grapes, using native Austrian varieties. 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 move the winery in the direction of natural wine making. They encourage the formation of humus as a basis of healthy soils, using their own natural composts and cultivating grass between the rows. Herbal remedies are also used and the vines are maintained under the rhythms of the moon. In order to produce authentic wines, they also avoid inoculated yeasts of any kind, and minimise sulphur, fining or filtration, with her Bambule! range epitomising this philosophy. These are sentiments and ideas we like at Buon Vino and the wines are really delicious, fresh and also great value for money, from an up and coming area that is producing some really excellent produce.
