Judith Beck Skin Contact, 100% Gewurztraminer, organic orange wine. A new wine in the fantastic range of natural wines from Judith Beck. Grapes are handpick and destemmed and then they macerate the Traminer grapes with the skins for 8-10 days. It is then pressed and after the fermentation finishes, is transported to old Barriques, where it rests for for 6-8 months. This is a very expressive wine, the skin gives pith, tannins and spices to add to the aromatic Traminer grape. Like all Beck wines, it has good definition and if there was ever a wine for curries and spicy foods, this is it! This is orange wine but with a difference, as the aromatic Traminer adds a whole new level of complexity and flavour.

Winery Judith Beck is a 15 hectare estate in Gols in Austria's Burgenland which has been farming biodynamically since 2007, aiming to respect the environment and produce the best quality grapes, using native Austrian varieties. Judith Beck herself studied abroad at places like Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux and Errazuriz in Chile but returned home to take over from her father and move the winery in the direction of natural winemaking. They encourage the formation of humus as a basis of healthy soils, using their own natural composts and cultivating grass between the rows. Herbal remedies are also used and the vines are maintained under the rhythms of the moon. In order to produce authentic wines, they also avoid inoculated yeasts of any kind, and minimise sulphur, fining or filtration, with her Bambule! range epitomising this philosophy.
