These were the recurrent questions from our recent Organic & Biodynamic Wine Dinner at The Wheatsheaf, so we wanted share our findings.
The efficacy of Biodynamic practice is never going to be something you can utterly prove (or disprove) by science, but sometimes results just speak for themselves. Knowing that Tesco’s wine buyers will only conduct their product tastings on ‘Fruit Days’ (the ‘best’ days, biodynamically, for tasting wine) suggests it’s not just something embraced by hippie farmers…
Here is a fantastic article from the website VinePair that explains the fundamentals of Biodynamic wine.
If that whets your appetite to try the difference for yourself, our favourite Biodynamic Wines this month are listed below… All available in store now.
Fruit-driven and delicate, yet well-structured and beautifully nuanced, with bramble and forest-like aromas. So fresh, and very ‘alive’ on the palate.
Plummy and full, with deep blueberry and mocha notes, beautifully balanced by a stony minerality that brings great vitality to the wine.
With fruit that is almost tropical in nature, the generosity of this wine is astounding. Opulent and deep, yet bright and dynamic in its acidity.
Precise, refined and intensely mineral, with the most delicate of citric fruit flavours, led by pink grapefruit. Almost crystalline in character and a true taste of Sauvignon Blanc.
