Winemaker Notes

It's doughy, mineral and powerful; amazingly high-toned for its mass; stony, but smooth stone, not gravel and not pulverized; toasty, mint and pink peppercorns; very Burgundian.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
A creamy nose shows spikes of green freshness, reminiscent of fern or ivy. The palate holds peppery, citrusy spray with creamy generosity while white pepper and ripe pear appear at the seams. The long finish is whistle-clean. This will blossom into further aromatic intensity with a little age. Drink as of 2016
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Grüner Veltliner Spiegel Erste Lage is Vincent Bründlmayer's third vintage of this cru after he purchased the elevated vineyard from the family in 2010. He gives a Burgundian-inspired interpretation of Grüner Veltliner here and another great Veltliner besides the famous Lamm of his Dad. In the Spiegel vineyard the vines root in calcareous soils with occasional gravel veins. Because of the well aerated position the grapes ripen slow and healthy until end of October/beginning of November and give refreshing wines of good concentration and structure. Fermented in domestic acacia and oak barrels as well as in French barriques and stainless steel where the wine aged for 3 months (with repeated bâtonnage) before the different barrels were united in a large wooden cask the 2013 barrel sample appears fresh, very subtle, precise and discreetly spicy on the nose offering a brilliant citrus flavor. On the palate this full-bodied, mineral, sweet and salty wine exhibits a vibrancy, transparency and finesse that so many other Grüners from Erste Lagen lack in 2013. This is surely a big and expressive wine you can enjoy for at least 12 years. 92+

Brundlmayer The Brundlmayer Team 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 calls Austria its homeland. While some easily quaffable Grüners come in a one-liter—a convenient size—many high caliber single vineyard bottlings can benefit from cellar aging. 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.
