Having had Bründlmayer recommended as a good producer of Grüner Veltliner, I was somewhat underwhelmed by this, and didn’t even finish the bottle. The Schloss Gobelsburg (at only a few quid more) was much more impressive. Pale green-gold with a wide, watery rim. Initially quite neutral nose: artichoke heart and gentle white-pepper notes, with tinned-pea and other savoury green-vegetable notes. Some melted butter too – like a slightly smoky white-pepper cream sauce. Spritz on the palate. Medium-high acidity with some dryness and a touch of bitterness on the finish. After a day or two lime and lemon fruit flavours emerge, with white pepper “heat” overtones.
