Weingut Brundlmayer Riesling Steinmassel 2011
Terry Theise: Here began a fantastically encouraging series of 11 Rieslings, such as I have not experienced here for a good 12-14 years. This is the best Steinmassel for quite some time, capturing its fervent rocky minerality -- it's a high-up vineyard on gneiss, amphibolite and mica-schist -- while being entirely juicy and approachable; redcurrant and herbal-leafiness, and if you like dry Riesling, then yummy.
Weingut Bründlmayer is situated in Langenlois, some 70 km north-west of Vienna, upstream along the Danube in the Lower Austrian Kamp Valley. The wooded hills of the Waldviertel protect the vineyards from the cold north-westerly winds. During the day, the sun warms the stony terraces, while at night the fresh, fragrant forest air drifts through the Kamp Valley into the Langenloiser Arena.
