"Chervil and miso savoriness combine with fresh pear and lemon notes on the nose of this wine, which tingles with white pepper. The palate is rounded and soft but remains juicily slender. There is earthy power here and a deep well of rich fruit that sings with its distinct and beautiful phenolic structure. Drink 2019–2029."
"Fifty-year-old vines on clay soils. 16-24 hours skin contact, spontaneous fermentation, half in 500-litre casks without temperature control. The rest in tank. Long lees ageing.
This still has all the hallmarks of fine Grüner: a stony, white-pepper quality to the citrus and a gentle herbal note and it has as well a mild and inviting creamy character from the oak influence. Firm in texture with a delicious orange-pith quality that is both flavour and texture. More power here than on the Hermanschachern and still beautifully balanced between fruit and texture. Long, tangy finish with a note of grapefruit in the fresh aftertaste. It may well age longer than I have suggested but it is already very good. 17/20 points. (JH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Philosophy: Ried Bürsting is situated on a wonderful high plateau at the end of an enchanting Kellergasse (the lovely Weinviertel cellar-lane). The moist and deep loam soil and the fifty-year-old vines (planted in the early 1960s) work as excellent partners in creating this distinctive wine with its exceptional character. Wine: Ried Bürsting is one of our very finest Veltliners, thanks to the enormous potential of the site, a wine impressive for its spiciness and complexity. Concentrated and juicy with a fine overlay of spices, GV Bürsting needs a great deal of air to coax out all of its facets. Food pairing: Fowl, sweetbreads, baked dishes, smoked eel or trout, robust hard cheeses.
