HALF BOTTLES: SPARKLING AND WHITE

Sparkling & White - GRÜNER VELTLINER, Berg Vogelsgang, Brundlmayer. Kamptal, Austria (Half Bottle)

2011 GRÜNER VELTLINER, Berg Vogelsang, Bründlmayer. Austria (Half)

Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Area: Kamptal is less famous than the Wachau but produces many of Austria's top whites. In the UK Austria is at last being recognised as a great producing country
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)
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. One of many wines from Austria that deserves the attention of all enthusiastic imbibers
