• Barbara Ohlzelt 2016 Kamptal Riesling

Austria. Ried Seeberg. This wine is from an under the radar producer who is a friend of Brundlemayer. This is a drier Riesling but still with plenty of fruit towards white peach, citrus zest, and a just there hit of honeysuckle and minerals. The palate has a great texture to it with tropical fruits and just there mineral. D&M Tasting Notes

Barbara Öhlzelt is a relatively unknown winemaker in the Kamptal that is turning the region’s paradigm completely on its head. Her production is focused largely on the two classic grapes of the region: Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. She offers a compelling, refreshingly unique take on what this historically significant terroir has to offer.

Championing lesser-known sites since 2004, she eschews textures and winemaking extremes in favor of linear focus and quiet, simmering intensity–she’s like if Weiser-Künstler were suddenly dropped on the Danube. These are racy, delicate wines of purity and energy, and are exactly what the next chapter in the story of Austrian should be. Importer Notes
