“Quite closed (due to reduction) this is a very well structured dry riesling with a lot of mineral character, but not much fruit. Excellent structure and potential, if you can wait a bit. The finish is quite imposing. From biodynamically grown grapes. Better after 2021.“

“The 2019 Ried Seeberg 1ÖTW Kamptal Riesling displays an intense yellow color and opens with an intense, aromatic and pretty baroque yet clear and refined bouquet of ripe, overripe and partly tropical fruit aromas intertwined with crystalline notes. Lush and round but also elegant and refined on the palate, this is a full-bodied, round, juicy and very intense Seeberg Riesling with lots of salt and vibrant tension. This is surely a long-distance runner, and indeed, I would not drink this 2019 before 2029/2030—and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s even better then. At least the phenols would be oxidized by then. 13% alcohol. Tasted at Schloss Gobelsburg in June 2021. “

About The Winery
Renowned Austrian winemaker Fred Loimer comes from a long-established Langenlois winegrowing family - where Fred was involved in winemaking from a young age. The Loimer winery resides on 70 hectares (172 acres) in Langenlois, the capital of the Kamptal winegrowing region of Austria, located in the northeast part of the country. In 1998 Fred took over the winery from his father and was ready to follow his path, outside of the traditional, long-standing ways. Two years later, he built a new winery, a minimalist black cube on a 150-year-old, hand-dug loess cellar in Langenlois - thus adding new spice to the charming local Kellergassen, or cellar streets. Within the Kamptal region, Fred Loimer has five vineyards (Loiserberg, Käferberg, Seeberg, Steinmassl, and Heiligenstein) where he grows Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Zweigelt used for his single varietal and blended wines. In 2006 the winery began its transition to practicing biodynamics. Eventually, Fred Loimer became one of the founding members of Respekt-Biodyn, a certifying body for biodynamic viticulture in Austria. Today, the Loimer Winery is among one of the most respected Austrian wineries on the international stage.
