Judith Beck owns a total of 13.5 hectares of vines in Gols, with holdings in the vineyard sites of Altenberg, Gabarinza, Salzberg and Schafleiten. 85% of the area is planted to red varieties – Blauer Zweigelt, Blaufrankisch, St. Laurent, Pinot Noir and Merlot, with the remaining 15% planted to white varieties – Welschriesling, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay.
The Becks built a new modern and functional winery and aging cellar in 2005. It allows Judith to manipulate her wines as little as possible in the vinification process, resulting in wines which show the pure and vivid expression of the varietal and the unique vintage character.
Judith Beck’s wines are at once elegant, fruit forward and complex expressions of her vineyards, Farming/vinification practices: Judith and her father Matthias practiced sustainable viticulture from the outset, and converted to biodynamic practice with the 2007 vintage. Judith uses only native yeasts in the fermentation process. The red wines are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, in new barriques or in open vats. The wines undergo malolactic fermentation in new barriques or in large oak barrels. Some of the red wines are also matured in large oak vats, some of which are quite old, and are already being used by the third generation of owners.The wines are vegan.
100% Pinot noir. Méthode ancestral. Native yeast, no dosage, no second fermentation, just pure grape juice. Whole bunch pressed, fermentation starts and the wine is being bottled when there is still residual sugar left. The fermentation finishes in the bottle which gives the wine its natural perlage. After a period of ageing each bottle is disgorged by hand. Unfiltered, unfined, and without adding SO2. Med body, med+ acidity and off-dry. Peach, apple, pineapple, grapefruit and strawberry.
