Brundlmayer 2018 Ried Loiserberg, Gruner Veltliner, Kamptal, Austria

Willi Bründlmayer farms 75 hectares of grüner veltliner, riesling, st. laurent, zweigelt and Burgundian varieties from an impressive collection of grand cru vineyards around Langenlois. Some of the most geologically diverse terroirs in Europe are here, in the heart of the Kamptal. The Danube and Kamp rivers, and the wooded hills of the Waldviertel forest, create a climate with large diurnal temperature swings that are essential to a long growing season. These rocky, terraced vineyards are not the steep, jagged terraces of the Kremstal or the Wachau; these are larger wider terraces, each creating its own micro climate. 

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.

Ried Loiserberg sits 380 meters above sea level, they are windy and experience extreme temperatures. The soil is mainly a rocky, non-calcareous brown earth that overlies a variety of siliceous crystalline rocks such as paragneiss, mica schist, and amphibolite. The Grüner Veltliner from “Loiser Berg” grows on a south to southeast facing slope, which is less exposed to the winds, resulting in a weighty, full style.
