Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW
An ethereal multi-faceted bouquet revealing scents of, among others, gooseberry, melon and citrus; so complex and posh; absolutely glittering. Very similar expressions on the palate, along with touches of herbal spice and fleur de sel; light-footed with a nice extract sweetness. Plenty of momentum with steely acidity accompanying the long finish.
The Bründlmayer family owns 12 hectares right in the centre of the Zöbinger Heiligenstein. It's not only the oldest but probably also the most interesting on our estate: the soil consists of approximately 270 Mio years old Perm desert sandstone.

We ferment the must in stainless steel at a temperature of 15-20° Celsius. After fermentation the wine was partly racked into big wooden casks to mature for a short period on the fine yeast.
