Beauty in Brundlmayer

We just can’t stop drinking the wines from Brundlmayer.  They are just so refined in style, true elegance and fully expressive of site and terroir.  Everytime we open one to share, our guests eith are very aware of the quality, or become new converts.

The Roadsters were visiting, and as a start to the evening, SWMBO and I put a couple of choices in front of them.  His eyes lit up when he saw the 2013 Brundlmayer Zobinger Heiligenstein 1OTW Riesling ‘Alte Reben’ Kamptal DAC Reserve.  He’d recently stood in the vineyard and knew abut the soils and aspect, and what made it special.  Indeed it was special.  Not particularly big in size, more medium-scales, but perfectly formed.  Gorgeous citrussy fruit with a hint of the exotic, and minerality in spades.  The acidity perfect too, balancing what might be 6 or 7 to 10 g/L RS.  13.0% alc, but far more elegant than that figure suggested.  This just intensified as the bottle got lower and lower.  It must be the old vines.  And so easy to sip on.  So beautiful.  So Brundlmayer.
