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.
'Pink' is a rosé of Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch from Burgenland grower Judith Beck, who has a reputation for making quality, affordable wines that compromise nothing in their sensitive vineyard work. This one is certainly on the zippy, clean and fresh side. Candied strawberry on the nose but also veering to white stone fruit. Once in the mouth the wine is both fleshy and tart, a sharp, salty tang of cranberry with some deep cherry notes also. Given a bit of time to open up (it can be a bit shy at first) the fruit deepens and savoury spices develop
