Gunther Brandl is a soft-spoken 2nd generation winemaker who is producing wine much in the style that his father did. His wines are pure and focused and he uses a combination of fermenting in stainless steel tank as well as old oak casks that fit tightly side by side in the original hall of his family’s cellars dug into the hillside at the base of the Heiligenstein vineyard. Gunther’s Riesling is mineral-driven, and in its youth can be extremely nervy, but with nice richness. Delicate aromatics of white flowers and stone fruits lead into flavors of Asian pear and white peach, with a zesty lemon-lime finish.
