Jochen Beurer is an ex-Euro BMX champion, and has taken on the role of a wine guru. Seriously, he is one of the most important winemakers in Germany at the moment. Add to this that his winery has been certified biodynamic, and his vineyards come from the region of Swabia, which is actually in Germany, encompassing both Baden and Wurttemberg. The consistency in quality and purity is evident from one wine to the next. He is also a deep thinker beyond the vineyards, always considering how his actions in (and out) of the vineyards will affect the outcome of his wine. Taste any of the varieties he makes; each seems to defy the laws of physics in their concentrated weightlessness.
Taking a blend of almost all the red varieties he grows, Jochen Beurer has bottled a wine that seems to defy gravity. Not to say that it’s completely weightless, it does seem to lift off the palate while simultaneously drinking like “biodynamic Gatorade.” Bottled at just 11% abv, it is less like alcohol and more of a hydrating beverage.
