Bambule Weissburgunder Judith Beck, biodynamic wine, no added sulphites, Weissburgunder is a globally underestimated grape. Weissburgunder 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.’
