Producer: Weingut Fred Loimer
Region/Country: Kamptal, Austria
Production Method: Organic viticulture. Short maceration followed by long fermentation in stainless steel and fine lees maturation
Style: Dry and crisp yet with good texture. Very aromatic and fruit forward.
Pairing Suggestion: Seafood, white meats and poultry dishes
Profile: Generally lighter in alcohol with refreshingly crisp natural acidity and typically highly aromatic. Riesling has the ability to translate terroir through distinct aroma and flavour profiles. It is produced in a range of styles, from bone dry through to lusciously sweet, and is capable of maturing and evolving over decades in the bottle. Typical fruit profile ranges from citrus (lemon and lime) through orchard (green and red apple) to stone and tropical (pineapple, peach, nectarine) depending on where it is grown and the intended style of Riesling.
Classic Regions: Eden and Clare Valleys (Australia), Mosel, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Nahe (Germany), Alsace (France), Kamptal, Kremstal (Austria)
Weingut Fred Loimer
The Loimer estate vineyards lie around Langenlois in the cool yet sunny Kamptal area to the north-west of Vienna. The conversion to biodynamic viticulture began in 2006, resulting in official Respekt certification for all estate wines. The grapes for their two regional wines are handpicked from vines aged up to 50 years. Aromatic and crisp, the Kamptal Grüner Veltliner and Kamptal Riesling offer excellent value.
