2014 Bründlmayer "Kamptaler Terrassen" Grüner Veltliner Kamptal (last of vintage) (Previously $23)

SKU #1263602 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 A wonderfully breezy, citrusy scent promises far fuller expression in the future. The palate is tightly coiled too, but already vibrates with pepper and herbal spice. Riper notions of yellow plums creep onto the palate but the spiciness and citrus zest remain, making for a truly long, lip-smacking finish. (AK)  (9/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Clear, coolish and fresh, with intense white fruit and discreet lemon aromas on the nose starts the 2014 Grüner Veltliner Kamptal Terrassen. Medium-bodied, aromatic and very juicy, this is a dense, elegant, mineral-structured Veltliner with a stimulating salinity and grip in the finish. (SR)  (3/2016)


 Like a crunchy salad of lime-drenched lettuce, cress, cucumber, celery root and green bean, this texturally polished, buoyant and refreshing offering delivers a characteristically peppery and invigorating bite in its strikingly sustained finish. The character of the vintage really suits this wine. (DS)  (2/2016)

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.


- 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. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
