Brundlmayer – 8/03/2012

Most of the wines we tried were from the 2011 vintage and were thus very young and shy.

There was great vibrancy and freshness, and often a natural spritz to the gruner veltliner and riesling wines.

The older vine wines tended to also have a natural fruit sweetness to them whilst remaining dry, and in some cases a nutty texture and complexity.

The major difference I found was with the age of the vines, as the Alte Reben 2011 Riesling was fuller, denser and had a very complex savoury white meat character.

The red wines were generally good but nothing too exciting apart from the Ladner St. Laurent 2008 which was both dense and spicy as well as being supple and mellow.
