Weingut Josef & Philipp Bründlmayer – Weissburgunder Konglomerat 2016 (88 TSW)
18 degress Celsius in the Netherlands. Time to open up a refreshing wine from Kremstal – Austria wineregion.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a citrus yellow color.
On the medium+ nose lemon and pear with hints of honey and nuts.
On the palate mdium bodied, medium+ acidity and light creaminess showing the same flavours as the nose with a nice spicyness in the medium aftertaste. Perfect companion for this weather.
Philipp Bründlmayer continues his father's work and builds a step by step modern fashion style winery. It has a total of 18 ha of its own vineyards, each of its plots has its own unique terroir. They create their wines with respect for nature, don’t use herbicides or other unpalatable preparations, and their aim is to let the terroir vignify each of their vineyards. Their vineyards are on the terraces, they have an exceptional location and are based on Grüner Veltliner and Riesling.
The 2,368 hectares of vineyards in Kremstal are divided into three different zones, starting with rocky soils in the original Krems River valley and the historic town of Krems, along with the municipality of Stein that adjoins the Wachau in the west, then moving on to the deep loess east of Krems, and finally the southern bank of the Danube opposite Krems, around the magnificent abbey Stift Göttweig.
The Grüner Veltliner is the major grape variety in the Kremstal Valley. It thrives on mighty loess terraces as well as on steep primary rock slopes.
