Fred Loimer owns 60 hectares around Langenlois, in the sunny Kamptal region of Lower Austria. HE makes a range of wines from the excellent value 'Lois' and 'Lenz' to the superb, single varietal Rieslings and Gruner Veltliners. Unlike many Austrian producers who go for an overly rich and sweet style, Fred gets full ripeness in the vineyard yet ferments to dryness, managing to produce wines with lovely definition, zest and balance on the palate.
Ageing Potential: Drink Fresh
Pale lemon with a green hue. Intense aromas of pear and green apple are followed by subtle tropical notes. On the palate, fruit flavours are balanced with lovely acidity. Light bodied, the wine is persistent, with a touch of spice on the fresh, crisp finish.
