Overview of the Wine
The Weingut Bründlmayer is situated in Langenlois, some 70 km 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 Langenlois Arena. The wines are characterised by a combination of hot days and cool nights, the meeting of the Danube and Kamp valleys, and the geological and climatic diversity of the vineyards.
The winery includes the family dwelling, a cellar equipped with best available technology and a heuriger which is open almost all year round and where all wines can be tasted in a convivial atmosphere. The family members and a committed, enthusiastic workforce devote care and attention to the vinification of the hand-picked grapes.
Grape / Blend
60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Grapes are selected in September when acidity and maturity have reached the perfect point for the base wine of sparkling production. These grapes are sourced from different southeast facing, chalky parcels that lend the wine freshness and warmth. The harvested grapes are transported in small cases directly into the cellar, where they are very gently and carefully pressed.
93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bründlmayer's NV Extra Brut Reserve, disgorged in April 2021 after almost four years on the lees, offers a very clear, intense but also subtle and elegant nose with smoky notes of ripe pears. Pure, fresh and intense, with fine oak flavors and delicate tannins, this is a dense but highly refined and refreshingly mineral Sekt with fresh lemon notes, a citric and a salty finish. This sparkling wine is in top shape and serves well as aperitif and as a partner for lighter dishes. Tasted from lot L 4349/07/17 in January 2022.
