A biodynamic wine is made according to a set of farming practises that view the vineyard as one organism and aims to create a self-sustained system without the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides. Farm animals such as ducks, horses and sheep live in and around the vineyards to naturally fertilise the soils, creating a rich and fertile environment for the wines to grow in. The aim of biodynamic farming is to encourage sustainability of the land to leave the land in as good or better shape for future generations. To make shopping for biodynamically certified wines easy, we have labelled the wines ‘BIO’.

Style |
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
