Description

"Deep yellow. Initially quite closed on the nose, requiring aeration, even decanting, before releasing delicate aromas of peach, flinty minerals and flowers. Firm and concentrated in the mouth, with racy acidity lifting white vineyard peach and passion flower flavors. Dark wet slate and lemon-laced apple on the persistent finish. Drink 2014 to 2024." - 92 Pts Peter Moser - International Wine Cellar 

WINERY OVERVIEW

Born into a winemaking family, Fred Loimer Jr. realized early on that he would have a future in the winemaking business. Following his formal education and experiences abroad working for other wineries, he returned to his family's winery in Langenlois, where he utilized his newly gained experience - something that didn't always please his father.

In 1998, one year after the winery was handed over from father to son; Loimer bought a historical vaulted brick cellar, a former cellar of the Haindorf Castle, in the middle of the grapevines between Langenlois and Zöbing. With the help of the architect Andreas Burghardt, he renovated the cellar adding a minimalist building above to serve as the tasting room and office.

Since 1999, the wines have been vinified and stored in the historical cellar under perfect, natural temperature conditions. Moreover, the Veltliners and Rieslings from single vineyard sites are ranked amongst the best wines of Austria and the wine world.

 

LOCATION OF VINEYARDS

The vineyards owned and managed by Loimer comprise a variety of the Kamptal region's soils: loess, loam, gneiss and gravel. The single vineyard estate wines, signified by their plain white linen labels, are sourced from older vineyards that have been tended under biodynamic principles since 2006.

It is the name of Loimer's hometown that provided the moniker for his most well-known wine, the Grüner Veltliner Lois (rhymes with choice), as the Loimer winery is inhabited in the Kamptal's largest and most important village, Langenlois.

 

WINEMAKING PROCESS

"Sustainability without Sacrifice" - this is the philosophy that Loimer lives by. Loimer's passion for renewal and vitality in the vineyards has led him to first experiment in and eventually embrace principles of biodynamic agriculture and winemaking.

His priorities lie firmly in the crafting of honest and pleasurable wines, raising his family, and protecting and preserving the land that provides his livelihood. The small Polynesian fertility symbol that seems to dance on each Loimer label signifies both a respect for ancient, natural traditions and an embrace of the playful and modern.
