2019 Josef & Philipp Brundlmayer Appellation: Kremstal, Austria Variety: Riesling Three generations have worked these vineyards in the Kremstal Valley. In 2015 Josef passed the winery's reigns onto his son, Philipp, who brings his own innovation and passion to vineyards management and winemaking at Brundlemayer. The vineyards consist of more than 100 different parcels and microclimates spread across 25 hectares of terraced vineyards on the desirable loess soils. They create their wines with respect for nature, no herbicides, insecticides, or chemical fertilizer. The grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hand. Every vineyard is vinified separately to mirror the terroir as precisely as possible. Of course, Gruner is extensively planted here, but Riesling truly shines in this mineral-laden soil. It loves the broad swing from day to night temperatures where the grape can fully develop its phenolics. This Austrian Riesling is bone dry, as most are, with aromas of lime, a bit of grass, and mint. Kaiserstiege Riesling has a lean streak of acid and minerality that will get your mother watering ever so nicely. Paired beautifully with cider-braised pork loin and cheesy polenta.
