Some great biodynamic red wines

Biodynamic wines are the new in thing, have you tried them yet? If you’re on the lookout for a good biodynamic organic wine to sample, then here are some suggestions that will certainly tickle your taste buds...

Gran Cerdo Tempranillo

If you’re looking for a biodynamic wine that doesn’t cost the earth, then give Gran Cerdo Termpranillo a try. It’s a beautiful cherry red colour with some great fruity flavours. You’ll taste cherry, raspberry and strawberries in this wine. There’s none of the oak flavour that you can get with other Temperanillos, just a little hint of mineral flavour from the granite and an overtone of violets.

Serasin Leah Pinot Noir

The fruit in this blended wine is hand picked in three different vineyards and it works incredibly well. It’s a smoky tasting wine packed full of dark fruit flavours. You’ll taste the tannins and acidity in this one. It’s a highly natural wine, fermented with wild yeast. It’s also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Cote Rotie Pierre Gaillard

At the higher end of the market, this Cote Rotie Pierre Gallard is a fine choice. It’s a very acidic wine which makes it work well with food as it shines through when eaten with any dish, it’s especially good with red meats. Vanilla and spices are the predominant notes in this wine and there’s also plenty of toasted oak flavour.

Viento Aliseo Granciano Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is always a popular wine, and this one is something rather special, being made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano grapes. It has a beautiful dark fruit aroma, with cherry and plum scents coming through. It’s a spicy yet well balanced wine, perfect to enjoy on its own, or with a meal.

Monte Bernardi Chianti Classico Riserva

This one is a fairly full bodied wine with a gorgeous colour and soft, fine tannins. If you’re looking for a well balanced fruity wine, that will please everyone, this is a great option. Perfect to serve up at a dinner party.
