OTHER - Rendered from St. Laurent, Zweigelt and Pinot Noir, this comes off like a cherry and red currant shrub, its overt fruitiness tempered by tart edges. Well-integrated, fine bubbles on a polished palate lead to a lusciously lingering albeit simple finish. 
David Schildknecht - Vinous, June 2016

WA - The intensely ros colored NV Brut Ros is a very delicate cuve of Pinot Noir (40%), Zweigelt (30%) and St. Laurent (30%), whose parts were fermented separately in stainless steel and assembled only after malolactic fermentation had been done. The newest Lot (L 3655, disgorged in February 2017) is predominantly based on the 2014 vintage and opens with a complex, intensely fruity and yeasty bouquet of brioche, red berries and red skinned apples. Highly delicate and dry on the palate, this is a very elegant, perfectly balanced and beautifully aromatic Sekt with a clear, fresh and persistent finish. This is one of the finest Ros sparklers I have ever tasted from Austria. Great for aperitif and with food thanks to its really dry and well-structured taste.

The Producer

Willi Brundlmayer

Willi Brundlmayer

Willi Bründlmayer is widely recognised as one of Austria's most gifted winemakers. He is best known for his Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners, although he also makes very high quality Chardonnays.

He has 57 hectares of vineyards, superbly sited high up on slopes around the wine town of Langenlois. His best site is the Heiligenstein vineyard where the rocky granite/slate soils produce Rieslings of astonishing mineral intensity, which age beautifully.

Other Varieties

There are over 200 different grape varieties used in modern wine making (from a total of over 1000). Most lesser known blends and varieties are traditional to specific parts of the world.

The Region

Kamptal

Kamptal’s vineyards in Lower Austria lie around the river Kamp, running north-east from the Wachau, but the region is dominated by the dramatic hill of Heiligenstein, around which the regions finest vineyards are to be found. 

Without the moderation of the Danube, this is a hotter, drier region. Riesling and Grüner Veltliner are still important, although other varieties, including red, make an appearance. The wines are fleshier but more accessible than those of the Wachau, but also manage to accentuate the spicy notes to be found in these varieties. 

Recommended Producers:

Willi Bründlmayer was one of the first to make a name internationally, but his friend Michael Moosbrugger at Schloss Gobelsburg makes arguably the most complex wines of the region. Weingut Hiedler offers fine value for money.
