“The 2019 Ried Steinmassl 1ÖTW Kamptal Riesling is beautifully fine, crystalline and herbal on the elegant, flinty and aromatic nose that gives way to perfectly ripe and dense apricot and peach aromas. Crystalline and refined on the palate, this is a full-bodied, powerful and intense Steinmassl that reflects the coolish terroir as well as the late harvest of fully ripe and concentrated fruit aromas. The wine reveals marked phenolic grip but has enough juice and texture to integrate what is still a bit too present. A very promising, persistently salty and aromatic Riesling. 13% alcohol. Tasted at Schloss Gobelsburg in June 2021. “

“The expressive candied-citrus and cake-dough aromas lead you into this medium-bodied but concentrated and texturally rich dry riesling with plenty of herbs at the bold and fresh finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold. “

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.
