Judith Beck Ink 2020

Judith Beck Ink is a blend of native Austrian varieties that makes you want more with every sip. Juicy organic Austrian red wine with a fresh lightness that suits the summer heat beautifully. Dark ruby colour with a dense appearance. The nose is a lively blast of dark fruits, sour cherry, cinnamon and clove sweet spices. The medium-bodied palate is light and refreshing with soft tannins, silky smooth mouthfeel and a refreshing hint of minerality. Hits the palate like a soft and juicy mouthful of dark summer berries and cherries, with subtle earthy and elegant spicy notes. Juicy and easygoing, it's a wine for every occasion. 

80% Zweigelt and 20% St. Laurent. 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 vineyards have a loam, clay and limestone soil composition.

Handpicking of the fruit. Minimal intervention winemaking philosophy. Natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks with 10 days of maceration following. Pressing and then ageing in large old third generation acacia wood barrels for 12 months. 

Ageing potential: Drink now or within 5 years.
