Bründlmayer Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs
The bouquet is complex with scents of hay flowers, blossom nectar, fresh green apples and ripe lime together with a note of lightly toasted brioche. The persistent perlage and elegant acidity, full of salty freshness, provides a vibrant entry on the palate and forms the backbone. Very dense and compact with, again, hints of ripe green apples and an appealing zesty touch. Rich, yet with a fine structure, this wine is clean and straight with a lingering, refreshing lemony - mineral finish.
Chardonnay grapes were harvested in September 2017 from southeastern, calcareous soils (i.e.Spiegel) and cooler western slopes (Steinberg) lending both warmth and freshness to the wine. The acidity and maturity of the grapes were at the exact point of readiness when they were picked and placed in small crates and then pressed very gently in the cellar.
Particularly dry sparkling wines are seducing an increasing number of Sekt lovers who prefer to indulge in purism. More than the classic Brut, with its decent dosage (slightly enriching and rounding off the taste) the Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature reflects the character of the grapes and the soil.

Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel. In the following spring, the base wine was bottled with sugar and yeast for second fermentation. Since then the young sparkling wine is staying on the lees (sur latte) in our historic maturing cellar, part of the 1200 bottles still waiting for their remuage (riddling) and finally disgorgment.
