Chardonnay Judith Beck, organic wine, handpicked grapes, whole bunch pressed, natural fermentation in old Barriques, 6-7 months ageing on the lees. This is delightful Chardonnay. Judith reckons her terroir lends itself very well to the grape. She doesn’t need to do much here. The grapes ripen very nicely in the warm climate of the Burgenland. The grapes are handpicked, naturally fermented in steel and then naturally go through malolactic fermentation. Judith leave the wine in the lees for several months. She doesn’t use oak here, nevertheless, the wine has a creamy, rich texture. This is a lovely Burgundy alternative, quite full bodied but with Austrian acidity to keep it balanced.
