2012 GRÜNER VELTLINER, Alte Reben, Bründlmayer. Kamptal, Austria

Bin:  270

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%

Grape variety:

100% Grüner Veltliner, Austria’s ‘native’ grape – capable of producing light, spritzy summer whites or, like this, a richer style with the dimension of a serious white Burgundy.

Producer:

Willi Bründlmayer has long been the leading producer in the Kamptal region. They have 75 hectares, mostly running along the Danube. The vineyards are ecologically sound; there are no herbicides used and only organic fertilisation; but when necessary they do have to spray against rot and mildew (it’s a damp climate, hence it’s hard to be completely organic).

Maturity potential:

Will improve to at least 2022, probably longer.

Old Bridge rating:

Fermented in old 300 litre casks (to give aeration, not a hint of oakiness) this is a broad, rounded but gently opulent wine. Yet another lesser-known wine in this section that deserves the attention of all enthusiastic imbibers.

Food match:

Versatile food wine, from spicy vegy curries to roast pork and apple sauce.
