Following historic traditions, the grapes are processed as they would be for red wine, fermented on the skins. The result is a beautiful and delicate light orange color with a higher concentration of tannins and structure along with a creamy body style.
This deliciously funky natural wine could be the best “beer lovers wine” in our portfolio. Reminiscent of a Belgian wheat beer with a frothy nature and immediate yeasty aromas, followed by citrus and floral notes. The palate brings orange peel, honey and honeysuckle, with notes of cardamom, cinnamon and cloves.
Naken’s acidity works alongside lighter entrees, while its tannic structure stands up to bolder dishes. Pair with burgers, fried chicken, BBQ, and fun. At 11% ABV, Naken is quite quaffable and a perfect match for a sunny day or a great meal with friends.
Biokult follows low intervention principals in wine making, with spontaneous fermentation from indigenous yeast and natural malolactic fermentation. The wine has a small content of CO2 remaining after fermentation that keeps the wine fresh and adds a slight natural effervescence to the wine that also protects against aging. Naken is sealed with a crown cap to keep in the natural goodness. This wine is unfiltered and may contain natural sediments.
Naken (the word for naked in Swedish, referring to Biokult’s “naked” production methods for the wine) has many attributes:
- Dry farmed wine without any irrigation
- Natural wine with low content of SO2
- Vegan friendly-produced without any animal byproducts
- Wild yeast fermentation – no inoculation
- Without filtration, can contain slight deposit of sediments and/or crystals
- No additions, no treatments
- Natural CO2 from fermentation
BIOKULT RED BLEND
ZWEIGELT MEETS PINOT NOIR
“A blend of equal parts organically farmed zweigelt and pinot noir, this has a charming red-cherry juiciness, with crisp herbal highlights. Served with a light chill, it’s a thirst-quenching red.” -Wine & Spirits
Biokult Red Blend is 50% Zweigelt and 50% Pinot Noir. The wine is vinified using classic red production methods with a short maceration to avoid grippy tannins. Very reductive using daily pump-overs for optimal color extraction. Made with 100% organic grapes.
The wine is translucent ruby with cherry red tones and a cranberry strawberry rhubarb tart nose. On the palate, we find ripe raspberry and rhubarb compote sprinkled with spices and garnished with a peppermint leaf. It has a silky mouthfeel with a gentle structure, medium body, prominent acidity, gentle tannins, and a dry finish
With its tangy palate and light body, Zweigelt Meets Pinot Noir Red Blend pairs with charcuterie, barbeque, fried chicken, and picnic salads. This is the perfect summer lunch wine.
BIOKULT ROSÉ SECCO
100% organic Pinot Noir. Beautiful medium pink color. Off dry with medium body, good acidity and vibrant bubbles. Delicate aromas and flavors of strawberry, red apple, red cherry and wet stone minerality.
An excellent food wine that goes well with pasta, light meats, risottos and cheese.
Very gentle and slow direct cold pressing to extract the red pigment. 1st and 2nd fermentation is temperature controlled in stainless steel tanks.
