Kamptal DAC, Erste Lage ÖTW
Impressively fine nose: the scent of flowers – acacia blossoms – meets white peaches & lemon balm, extremely refreshing and almost cool, both lively & complex; the graceful character follows through fully on the palate even with all the extract, again with bright fruit nuances, playful & quite elegant, setting a new standard for this category; racy with a long finish & room to grow.
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.

Site and climate
The terraced south and southwest facing slope of Zöbinger Heiligenstein has a unique geological history that has been preserved in this particular area.
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.
Food pairing recommendation
All types of seafood, grilled fish, fried chicken or pork a good alternative to red wine in combination with roast duck; matches with all various elegant Asian dishes.
