Brilliant pale straw in colour with green reflexes. The bouquet shows finely coiled, extremely refined fruit of honeydew melon & white peach, some lime peel here as well, a bit contained despite the great ripeness. At once seeking the depths, discreet & distinguished. The palate, however, takes off, coiled & concentrated fruit flavours – unparalleled rich texture, always concentrated but always refreshing; simultaneously clear as a bell & quite complex, scores big for its vitality & breeding, an exceptional Riesling here, with great length on the finish.

Weingut Bründlmayer is situated in Langenlois, some 70km north-west of Vienna, upstream along the Danube in the Lower Austrian Kamp Valley. The wooded hills of the Waldviertel protect the vineyards from the cold north-westerly winds. During the day, the sun warms the stony terraces, while at night the fresh, fragrant forest air drifts through the Kamp Valley into the Langenloiser Arena. Willi Bründlmayer believes that the vineyards in Austria's Kamptal are the heart of his winery. With the help of his family and his employees, the passionate winemaker refines his wines - according to environmentally friendly standards. Thanks to countless awards, Bründlmayer has been able to build up a very good reputation worldwide. The recognition and the great respect for his work are enormous.
