Judith Beck and her family tend to 15 hectares of vines surrounding their beautiful winery and home located in the village of Gols, Burgenland in north east Austria, with most vines situated at the Wagram of the Parndorfer Platte, generally considered to be the best site in the region.  The grapes benefit from the proximity of Lake Neusiedl which acts as a natural storage heater, storing the warmth of the sunshine during the day and releasing it through the night.  Although the Beck family had been farming crops sustainably in Burgenland for decades it was in 1976 that they decided to increase their plantings of vines and focus exclusively on making wine. Judith Beck has a wealth of practical  experience and training, in 2001 she inherited the winery from her father after having travelled extensively to work with some very iconic wineries; Cos d’Estournel in Bordeaux, Braida in Piemonte and Errazuriz in Chile, though she was not compelled to emulate any of those wines; she focuses on the traditional grapes of her region.  It was Judith who saw the benefits of biodynamic farming and transitioned from conventional viticulture to biodynamics.     

Tasting Notes

Weissburgunder is also known as Pinot Blanc. Generally the whites in Burgenland are powerful and high in alcohol, though Judith makes a leaner, fresher style as you will find out once you taste this lovely drop.  It is moderately aromatic wine showing some pear and peach and lemon zest on the nose.  Medium bodied and bright on the palate with high acidity and balanced fruit.  Notes of citrus, white peach and crushed rocks with a long finish.  Enjoy this now or lay it down for a few years to see how it evolves in bottle;  it has all the structure indicating good ageing potential.   This dry white wine makes an excellent aperitif and pairs well with salads, flaky fish and soft cheeses.

Method

Biodynamically grown Weissburgunder grapes are hand picked, whole bunch pressed and spontaneously fermented in old acacia wood casks.  The wine ages on the lees for 6 months.   Judith’s wines are always more discreet than loud. Always worth a second look. In her own words, “International style can be produced by everyone, everywhere. My wines are my own. They are here and now. And that is for me the most beautiful thing. Like my life in the vineyards”.
