Description

Judith Beck Blaufränkisch Bambule! 2018

Judith Beck Blaufränkisch Bambule! has strength and elegance at the same time. The nose opens with aromas of black cherries, tobacco and just a background hint of herbs and tomato paste. The dry and medium-bodied palate has soft chewy tannins and a vibrant, precise acidity. A thrilling wine full of rich black cherry, blackberry and raisin flavours over a tobacco and coffee spice background.

100% Blaufränkisch. Judith Beck winery is near lake Neusiedlersee, the warmest region of Austria for wine production. The lake acts as a natural storage heater, storing the warmth of the sunshine during the day and releasing it through the night. The fruit for this wine comes from the Kurzberg vineyard. The vines grow on limestone, loam and sand soils.

Handpicking and partial destemming of the fruit. Minimal intervention winemaking philosophy. Natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks with 2–3 weeks of maceration. The young wine goes through pressing and then moves into 1,000–2,000 litre neutral acacia wood casks to complete malolactic fermentation. the wine ages for 8–12 months. No fining or filtering before bottling.

Ageing potential: Drink now or up to 3 years from vintage.
