2017 Bründlmayer "Kamptaler Terrassen" Riesling Kamptal

SKU #1397656 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Kamptal Riesling Terrassen is intense and aromatic on the nose but precise, elegant and fresh, with white peach aromas intertwined with spicy and herbal aromas. Racy, piquant and lush, this is a firm and straight dry Riesling with clear, defined acidity and a stimulating phenolic structure. Very fresh and aromatic on the pure and mineral finish.

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 A beautiful aromatic lift of citrus foliage signals freshness on the nose of this wine. The palate follows with a juicy mix of lemon and mandarin notes within a light, fresh and easy body that's full of flavor, verve and joy. The finish is dry and moreish. (AK)  (9/2018)

90 points James Suckling

 Delicate peach and nectarine aromas, plus some positive, yeasty character. Medium-bodied with lively acidity, but no rough edges at the long, clean finish. From organically grown grapes.  (10/2018)

This is dry, firm and bracing with notes of spiced green apple, petrol, under ripe peach and dried citrus rind. Elegant, fine and ethereal for those who like to contemplate whats in their glass.

Pure and precise with petrol and orchard fruit aromas, lemon and green apple flavors and acidity for days. A fabulously dry and crisp wine.

Varietal:

Riesling

- While the rest of the world has often misappropriated the name--Welchriesling, Riesling Italico, Gray Riesling and Emerald Riesling are all names applied to varieties that are NOT Riesling--this exceptional German varietal has managed to maintain its identity. Perhaps its biggest claims to fame are its intoxicating perfume, often described as having honeyed stone fruit, herb, apple and citrus notes, and its incredible longevity - the wines lasting for decades. Aged Rieslings often take on a distinctive and alluring Petrol-like aroma. Within Germany, the grape seems to do best in the warming slate soils of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer. Other German regions that turn out great Rieslings include Pfalz, Rheingau and Nahe. German Rieslings are made in a range of ripeness levels. The top wines are assigned Prädikat levels to describe their ripeness at harvest. These are: Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese, Eiswein and Trockenbeerenauslese. Riesling has also achieved acclaim in France's Alsace, the only region in that country where the grape is officially permitted. Alsatian Rieslings are typically dry and wonderfully aromatic. Austrian Riesling is also steadily gaining praise and fine Riesling is also produced in Italy's Alto-Adige and Friuli, in Slovenia and much of Central and Eastern Europe. In the New World its stronghold is Australia, where it does best in the Eden and Clare Valleys. It is also planted in smaller amounts in New Zealand. In the US, winemakers are eschewing the syrupy sweet versions of the 1970s and 1980s, instead making elegant and balanced wines in both California and Washington State.
Country:

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure.
