Brundlmayer

Among the greatest estates in Austria and arguably among the very greatest white-wine producers in the entire world. Quality has gradually increased even further, under the watchful eye of Andreas Wickhoff, MW, who took the helm from Willi Bründlmayer in 2014.

The entry level wines are the purest examples of straight-up Kamptal Riesling and Grüner you could hope for. But the fancier bottlings are truly next level transmitting the multi-faced soil, aspect, elevation and micro climates throughout the Kamptal. The estate is always pushing the boundaries of what one could expect from their vines and with great effect.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 94
"Intensely yellow in color, the barrel sample of the 2016 Ried Lamm 1ÖTW Grüner Veltliner offers a very deep and concentrated, slightly oaky but clear, fresh and lemon-flavored bouquet with lime zest and lemon grass aromas. This is a spicy Burgundian style of Grüner Veltliner, and this is also the case on the palate that is dominated by its pure, complex and vital mineral character and its ripe but discreet fruit. The finish (without having any hints of sweetness) reveals great finesse and purity as well as a noble oak quality that reminds me of the finest Cognacs and Armagnacs. The finish is dry, tight, pure and enormously salty, with slight toast aromas and great tension. This is a great Austrian terroir wine that was fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel, whereas it was aged in partly new and partly used 300-liter barrels and 1200-liter oak casks. The 2016 is scheduled to be bottled in late July/early August 2017." -Stephan Reinhardt

"Hazelnut-like oak notes still dominate the nose of this wine. The palate counters them with friendly mirabelle plum fruit and ample lemon freshness. This needs time to integrate and unfold but has all the necessary balance and stuffing to do just that. Drink 2020–2030."
