2017 Bründlmayer "Kamptaler Terrassen" Gruner Veltliner Kamptal

SKU #1388481 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 A touch of reduction still clouds the ripe but tart red apple notes on the nose of this wine. With a little air, the fruit becomes more expressive, crescendoing into a savory core of yeast, flint, salty soy and sage. The finish brims with ripe lemon. (AK)  (8/2017)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Smoke aromas extend on the palate to join hints of toasted hazelnut, which surrounds yellow apple and quince flavors, all underscored by sea salt detail in this white. This shows great harmony overall, with good intensity of flavors and acidity, leaving a salty impression on the finish. (AZ)  (1/2019)

90 points James Suckling

 The discreet green-plum aroma, together with a satisfying balance of medium-body with animating acidity and a slightly salty finish, make this an appealing and food-friendly grüner veltliner. From organically grown grapes.  (10/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Kamptal Grüner Veltliner Terrassen is stunningly flinty and reductive on the pure, elegant nose. This is a pure, fresh and mineral Veltliner with a long and juicy finish and stimulating salinity. Wow, this is one of the most exciting Veltliners you can find at this price point. In fact it's an archetype of the Kamptal with all its herbal, floral and most of all coolish, elegant expression. Salty and lush on the highly stimulating finish. (SR)  (12/2018)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 This plays its fresh lemon, pear and peach flavors off a broad, rich marzipan texture that makes it terrifically easy to drink. It’s lush yet subdued, and versatile in its build.  (4/2019)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gruner Veltliner

- Grüner Veltliner is the most widely planted grape variety in Austria, making up about a third of all the vineyard land in the country, according to importer extraordinaire Terry Thiese. The varietal has definitely increased in popularity of the past few years, as sommeliers and wine directors loaded their lists with this spicy white because it pairs well with so many things. Its bouquet has been described as floral, tending to toward musky, with hints of peppery greens, lentils, citrus and red fruit with a distinctive mineral quality. In the mouth the wine can be broad or precise, but is almost always distinguished by bracing acidity and flavors that mirror the nose. A notoriously good ager, you can drink GrüVes in their youth, or let them evolve in complexity in your cellar.
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.
