Biodynamic means wine that has been Demeter certified, and therefore uses agricultural techniques that link fertility and vine growth to ecology. Biodynamic winemakers make sure they not only avoid using harmful pesticides and fertilisers, but they also attempt to become part of the local ecosystem. It is common to see local wildlife and livestock roaming through biodynamic vineyards. You can think of it as organic, but even more ethical. Wines are a premium natural wines online retailer, specialising in an array of biodynamic wines that you have to try this summer. Discover the highlights of their impressive selection below.
One of Pure Wines’ most popular biodynamic examples is Baudili. grown and created on the Mas Candi vineyard in Penedes, Spain. The winemakers and close friends Ramon Jané and Toni Carbo form this wine from Xarel-lo and Parellada grapes. Their mission is to create a delicious wine, with the minimum of farming intervention. With this light straw yellow wine, free of any additives, they have undoubtedly succeeded.
El Truc Negre
The highest-rated biodynamic wine in the Pure Wines range is also created in East Spain. The Masia De La Roqua vineyard has a nearly 500-year history of making bold and expressive wines. El Truc Negre has revolutionised the use of Tempranillo grapes by adding a rare soft finesse to the intensity of Tempranillo wines. This is a stunning dark red wine with very limited availability.
Veltlinske Zelene Orange
Pure Wines are always adding exciting new wines to their selection. This summer is no different with Veltlinse Zelene Orange joining the selection of biodynamic wines. It is a lighter orange wine from Moravia in the Czech Republic. Gruner Veltliner grapes are used, alongside orange wine-making techniques, and a ten-month ageing process in oak barrels. The result is a fun, fruity, and light wine. You can drink this wine chilled to perfect a warm summer evening.
Pure Wines specialises in premium wines, but that does not mean that lower budgets have no options. If you are just starting your biodynamic wine journey, then Pure Wines’ most affordable biodynamic wine is worth considering.
