First international praise for our classic wines of vintage 2020!
To Stuart Pigott of “jamessuckling.com” the vintage 2020 in Austria is once more depending on the vintners craft:
“Some producers clearly struggled with the 2020 vintage, while others, such as Brundlmayer, (…) seemed to get everything right. Their wines are racy, aromatic and expressive with moderate alcohol and great freshness – all the good things traditionally associated with Austrian dry whites. They are also excellent value for money.”

Kamptal Terrassen Grüner Veltliner 2020 - Score 93
The perfect introduction to the gruner veltliner grape! Brimming with lime, yellow grapefruit, herbs and fresh cucumber, this is an extremely expressive and very friendly dry white. Lovely balance of on the finely etched, medium-bodied palate with elegant acidity underlining the wide spectrum of flavors. Invigorating, long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
Kamptal Terrassen Riesling 2020 - Score 93
Almost German style, this dry riesling has a great balance of citrus and stone-fruit aromas, as well as some nice fresh-herb notes. Juicy and well-structured with plenty of minerality, this is a delightful and complex wine that’s just beginning to give its best. Long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
Grüner Veltliner L&T 2020 - Score 90
Pristine green and yellow-apple aromas, but also some lime and fresh herbs. You need to like acidity to go for this very sleek and crisp gruner veltliner, but it’s impeccably made. Only 11% alcohol. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.
Donauriesling 2020 - Score 91
An appealing, floral and peachy dry riesling with a touch of chamomile. This is a juicy and crisp white with very good balance and a long finish that’s as clean as a whistle. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.
