Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW
Initially somewhat restrained, but opens quickly while remaining transparent and delicate with candied lemon peel, brioche and even panettone emanating from the glass. Cool and finely delineated, classy and crystal clear. Fleur de sel and herbal spice with sage and thyme setting the tone. Expressive and promising, abundant elegance in every phase – will benefit from further bottle maturation.
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.
