WTN: The whites of their glasses

by Rahsaan » Sat May 12, 2018 6:22 pm

2014 Pinon Vouvray Brut
Nice wine. Crisp, fine, mid-weight baked apple floral fruit and foamy finesse. All in proportion, lovely with roasted broccoli pizza on the deck before the mosquitoes come. So nothing to complain about. But never got me too excited.

2013 Bründlmayer Riesling Steinmassel
This on the other hand. Gorgeous! God in a bottle! (Or at least some heavenly spirits were working in sync through my wine glass that evening) Verdant and mineral but with all sorts of sappy juiciness and plenty of delicate fine flavor notes. A great match with oyster mushroom and broccoli raab pizza. Even better, exactly the experience I craved when I opened the bottle. Must drink more.

2013 is as good as we were led to believe for Austria. Brundlmayer is of course fantastic. Put the two together!

That's what I hear.

I wasn't buying much Austrian wine when they were released, so I never got a sense for the vintage. But I have a few more and will definitely keep that in the back/front of my mind.
