Weissburgunder Bambule Judith Beck, biodynamic wine, no added sulphites, Weissburgunder is a globally underestimated grape. Weissburgunder Bambule is perfectly adapted to the climate and soils around Lake Neusiedl. Bambule Weissburgunder is handpicked, whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in an old casks. It is aged on the lees for one year. It is then bottled without filtration or sulphites . Bambule is a regional expression for a ruckus or a hullabaloo – meaning that the wines are not ‘silent’ at all. Instead they are explosive, and expressive. All the Bambule wines are made following biodynamic principles and with no added sulphur. The warm conditions of the Burgenland area often result in low acid white grapes. Therefore, skin contact is used to add complexity, structure and depth to the white wines. The Bambule Weissburgunder Judith Beck has a touch of skin but is still fresh, juicy, aromatic and a little wild.

A note on biodynamic wine….

‘The work of a winegrower is based on his or her vines. Optimum nutrient supply and a functioning soil life are the prerequisites of any top-quality grapes. We therefore decided in 2007 to convert to biodynamic viticulture with the help of expert Dr. Andrew Lorand.  We rely on a number of key elements to keep our vines healthy.   Cover crops, care for the biodiversity of the vineyard, fertilizing with organic humus, using mainly manual labour and working in tune with the moon cycles all help to create a natural, healthy environment in which our vines can flourish even during difficult vintages.’

The Judith Beck winery is a 15 hectare estate in Gols in Austria's Burgenland. They have been farming biodynamically since 2007.  The aim to respect the environment and produce the best quality grapes they can.  They use native Austrian varieties and some international grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc.

Judith Beck studied abroad at places like Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux and Errazuriz in Chile.  She returned home to take over the winery from her father and moved in the direction of natural winemaking.  In the vineyard they encourage the formation of humus as a basis of healthy soils.  They use their own natural composts and cultivate grass between the rows. Herbal remedies are also used and the vines are maintained following the rhythms of the moon and biodynamic calender.  They don't use  any inoculated yeasts of any kind, they minimise sulphur, fining and filtration. The Bambule range which is all zero sulphur and certified biodynamic, epitomising this philosophy.

These methods and ideas are what we look for at Buon Vino and the wines are really delicious.  They are fresh, drinkable and also great value for money.  The Burgenland is now firmly planted in the world of wine as one of  the coolest places to make wine and natural production is flourishing.  Many of the wines are pretty pricy and Judith Beck maintains her position as making some of the best value wines in the area.
