Winemaker Notes

Rich and generous from the beginning, some forest honey and rye bread, but also rich fruit length to Steinobst, creamy, inviting and quite flowing; With all the strength but also fine lines, surprisingly animated and fresh, muscular and tightly interwoven, works really well on the palate and has a long pepppery finish.

Pairs perfectly to classic Austrian dishes such as Tafelspitz, baking meat, various fish dishes, vegetable dishes, as well as the varied cuisine of Asia. A true all-rounder, which can be used more and more with the beginning maturity.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is as serious as Grüner gets. It's a very rich wine, fully structured, packed with ripe apricot flavors with a touch of lime. The texture is dense, mineral still very young. With concentration and young acidity, it needs to age. Drink from 2017.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Brundlmayer’s 2012 Gruner Veltliner Alte Reben – not harvested until well into November and then, as usual for this bottling, from numerous small parcels in different official sites – performs an integration of invigoratingly tart and bitter elements as deft as that observed with the corresponding Loiser Berg. In addition, it projects flattering glycerol richness without weight. Apple, rhubarb, red raspberry and edamame are laced with green tea on a polished, juicy palate leading to a lingering finish at once soothing and stimulating in its dynamic interplay. Here is a prime example of how 2012 can offer vivacity and refreshment at relatively low levels of acidity. I suspect it will prove worth following through at least 2024. Brundlmayer and his importer planned to release it to U.S. markets early this year.

A zesty white, with fresh, juicy flavors of dried apricot, pear tart and white raspberry. Features plenty of pastry notes midpalate, with a long finish that's both creamy and crisp. Drink now through 2020.

Brundlmayer  Winery Image

The Weingut Bründlmayer is situated in Langenlois, some 70 km north-west of Vienna, upstream along the Danube in the Lower Austrian Kamp Valley. The wooded hills of the Waldviertel protect the vineyards from the cold north-westerly winds. During the day, the sun warms the stony terraces, while at night the fresh, fragrant forest air drifts through the Kamp Valley into the Langenlois Arena. The wines are characterised by a combination of hot days and cool nights, the meeting of the Danube and Kamp valleys, and the geological and climatic diversity of the vineyards.

The winery includes the family dwelling, a cellar equipped with best available technology and a heuriger which is open almost all year round and where all wines can be tasted in a convivial atmosphere. The family members and a committed, enthusiastic workforce devote care and attention to the vinification of the hand-picked grapes.

Climbing north and slightly east of the Kremstal region, Kamptal has very little vineyard area bordering the Danube River (unlike Wachau and Kremstal, whose vineyards run along it). The region takes its name from the river called Kamp, which traverses it north and south. Kamptal’s densely planted vineyards represent eight percent of Austria’s total.

The area experiences wide diurnal temperature variations like the Wachau but with less rain and more frost. Its vast geologic diversity makes it suitable for various experimentations with other varieties besides Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, such as Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, St. Laurent and Zweigelt.

But the region is probably most noted for the beautiful and expansive terraced Heiligenstein, arguably one of the world’s top Riesling sites, as well as some of Austria’s most extraordinary Grüner Veltliner vineyards. Kamptal’s soils, which are mostly loess and sand with some gravel and rocks, make it suitable for Grüner Veltliner, so much so that actually half of the zone is planted to that grape.

Fun to say and delightfully easy to drink, Grüner Veltliner is indigenous to Austria, where it has long maintained its status as the nation’s most important and most planted white grape. Somm Secret—About 75% of the world’s Grüner Veltliner comes from Austria but the variety is gaining ground in other countries, namely Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the United States.
