Brundlmayer 2016 "Terrassen" Riesling, Kamptal, Austria

Winemaker: Willi Bründlmayer

Farming: Organic

Terroir: Blend of three vineyard sites: Steinmassal, Steinberg, & young vines from Heileigenstein. The elevated terraces consist of stonier soils that bring fruit-driven wines with mineral nuances and good aging potential. The vines from lower sited terraces grow partly on layered fertile loess and bring earlier maturing wines that are very expressive in their youth. Soils are Primary rock, Loess, Clay at 260-380m elevation.

Vinification: Stainless steel

Bründlmayer, which holds some of the oldest vines in the Kamptal, uses only organic fertilizers in their vineyards, and cover crops are planted between rows. During harvest, multiple selections through the vineyard are made, as botrytis is never accepted. Grapes are never de-stemmed or crushed, and they are handled as minimally as possible. A tiny portion of grapes are held back, de-stemmed and macerated for 12 hours; Willi uses these as ‘seasoning’ during blending to add another dimension and tonality to the final wines.
