Bründlmayer Pinot Noir
This Blauburgunder was made with the ripest Pinot Noir grapes, mainly from the top vineyards Dechant and Käferberg.
The Dechant vineyard site is comprised of calcareous loess-clay soil terraces on the south-east slope. On the higher terraces is the clay with ancient rock and gravel deposits.
The Käferberg vineyard site is located at the upper end of an eastern slope at about 300 meters above sea level – in the north of the town of Langenlois. Preserved calcareous, clayey marine deposits are found there.
This soil is similar to that of the famous Château Petrus in Pomerol, and produces an extremely dense wine. The top layer is made up of sand and primary rock.
A traditional vinification includes one and a half weeks maceration followed by maturation in 2 to 3 years old 300 liters Austrian oak barrels.

“An impressive pinot noir that marries subtle forest floor, cherry and autumnal aromas with medium body, fine-grained tannins and just enough acidity to make this wine sparkle at the long, delicate finish. From organically grown grapes.” 93pts – Stuart Pigott for jamessuckling.com
