Weingut Bründlmayer

The treasured Bründlmayer vineyards are situated in Langenlois, in the Kamptal region to the north west of Vienna, where the mostly terraced vines run along the edge of the Danube. The soils vary greatly in type from sandstone-rich to marine clay with different varieties planted accordingly. All vineyards are tended on ecologically sound lines with no herbicides of any kind used and great importance is placed on training the vines according to vineyard site, for example just over ground level to ensure that the grapes benefit from soil heat after the sun has set, assisting the ripening of the fruit. The Bründlmayer family name has become synonymous with reliable, top-quality Austrian winemaking. At the turn of the millennium, Decanter magazine cited winemaker Willi Bründlmayer among the 50 most likely people to change the face of the world of wine in the coming decades, demonstrating the esteem in which he is held at home and abroad in wine circles.

Tasting Notes

The grapes are sourced from terraced vineyards in the Kamptal region and blended to achieve a balance between rich fruit and elegance. White flowers and lime on the nose followed by pineapple, herbs and subtle spice flavours. A fresh delicate palate with lots of fruit and a crisp mineral finish.
