For the Demeter-certified Biodynamic: Luna, three Irish growers – Trevor Harris, Alan Mooney and John McDonnell – stepped up to the challenge of applying unusual agricultural practices to growing barley. They run their farms according to esoteric principles derived from a 1924 series of lectures by the Austrian polymath Rudolf Steiner. Steiner created a codified agricultural system for post-WW1 farmers, who were worried about the industrialisation of agriculture, the degradation of the land and the loss of millennia of farming know-how – bios meaning life, and dynamos energy. Having been adopted by many of the world’s greatest wine producers seeking the ultimate of pure and intense flavours, biodynamics today stands at the cutting edge of regenerative agriculture
Nose: Super spicy, similar to rye whisky. Apricots, underripe pineapple and a green, agave-like element and finally a whiff of honey and draff.
Palate: It’s alive with spice: white pepper and cloves, cinnamon and ginger. Followed by creamy, almost cream cheese notes, honeycomb, agave and Williams pears.
Finish: Long, slightly dry finish with plenty of spices and lingering creamy custard.
