2019 was an excellent and ripe vintage in Lower Austria. It allowed Brundlmayer to make a very nice Pinot Noir. Light ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has nice cherries, some cranberries and some black cherries along with a bit of spice. Bright acidity. Lovely texture. Light tannins. On the palate, cherries with slight underlying earthiness. Good finish. This is young and it could use three to five more years of cellaring. It should drink for ten to twelve years after that. It would work nicely with roasted duck or chicken.
