2014 Judith Beck Ink

Article number: Beck Ink
Availability: In stock (3)

Judith Beck runs her family’s estate in Gols on Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland, southeast of Austria. Her parents established the property in 1976, and she made her first vintage in 2001. Her father still helps with the vineyard work, and in 2007 they converted the estate to biodynamic viticulture. In this corner of Austria, where the climate is moderated by the lake, the focus is on red grapes: 85% of their vineyards are planted to zweigelt, blaufränkisch, saint laurent, merlot, and pinot noir, and the remaining 15% on welschriesling, pinot blanc, and chardonnay. “Beck Ink” is fermented in stainless steel and then spends 8 months in barrique. This is a medium-bodied red with surprising spice and mineral depth, a nice pair for some charred burgers or ribs on the grill. Judith’s philosophy about wine is pretty hard to argue with: “Wine and the joy of living and pleasure all go hand in hand.”
