Hoke wrote:Bob, don't want to speak for Tim, but when he cites an oxidative style, I believe he's referring to the traditional style of Jura, not of organic wine per se.
Well made wine from organically grown grapes need not be any more or less oxidative than those from grapes not organically grown.
Bonterra was referenced earlier: Bonterra has never claimed to make organic wines. Bonterra grows their grapes organically (and biodynamically), but they do not resist using sulfur as needed.
So, again, if organic/biodynamic wines are showing oxidation: that is primarily the result of a decision made by the winemaker to produce it in a style which shows oxidation.
