The Wine Advocate - Predominantly from southeast-facing vineyards with calcareous soils, Brndlmayer's salmon colored NV Brut Ros blends equal parts St. Laurent, Pinot Noir and Zweigelt. The recent disgorgement (February 2018 from lot L. 4541) is the first based on the 2016 vintage and includes about 20% reserve wine. The wine offers a super ripe and fruity but also vinous bouquet of red berries, (candied) cherries, chalk, yeast and some floral notes. The palate is pure, fresh, dry and much lighter than expected from the nose. It has 11.5% alcohol but a great intensity of flavors, with subtle but nice oxidative notes and lemony flavors on the refreshing, complex finish. This young and vibrant ros will probably refine with bottle age. There are still some phenols on the finish that need time to polymerize.

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

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.

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.
