Philipp Brundlmayer Gruner Veltliner Liter 2022
A brand new producer for us and just super exciting. Joseph and Philipp Brundlmayer are passionate not only about winemaking but also their family history, one that is intimately connected with spectacular vineyard sites that they work entirely by hand. In the 1980s Joseph turned a passion for winemaking into a full time profession, taking the grapes that were normally sent to co-op and teaching himself how to make wine, but even more importantly adding vineyard sites. Not just any vineyard sites, the ones no one wanted to work since they were too hard, too high, too terraced. In short, many of the best sites of the Kremstal. It was when his son Philipp joined him in winemaking in 2015 that things really took off, innovations in winemaking, labeling and attention to low intervention vineyard management. Everything is done by hand, cover crops are used to their fullest and no attention to detail is spared in the health of their 100 different vineyard plots or in the meticulous cellar.
This delicious liter bottling is a wine they have made just for us. It is bright, fresh and lively full of all of the classic pepper and spice and crunchy minerality one hopes for in a Gruner Veltliner from the Kremstal.
